Relieve migraine attacks by using these home remedies

Suffering from migraine attacks disrupts everyday life. It is extremely painful and can last up to 72 hours for every migraine attack. But what can be done to help relieve the migraine attacks naturally?
I posted an article previously and here am updating with even more natural ways to help ease migraine attacks at home



I am not suggesting that anyone should stop taking any medication for it. I know very well it is painful. But if you are at home and you dont have medication you can consider a natural home remedy that works. 

For more home remedies that work in relieving migraine attacks please read it here.

.
Coffee

Drinking a strong cup of coffee may help to reduce the effects of the migraine. As coffee has caffeine it helps by restricting the blood vessels causing the receptors to be blocked. You can add a few drops of lemon juice, freshly squeezed. But be warned that for some people caffeine can actually make the migraine worse. Or it can cause another rebound headache.  

Feverfew

Did you ever hear about feverfew? It is a herb that is used to help combat migraines effectively. As it contains parthenolide. It works because it helps to prevent inflammation and help to relax the muscles. As it helps by neutralizing prostaglandins. This means it helps to reduce the pain signals.

Methods to use feverfew leaves

  • Start by taking a teaspoon of dried peppermint as well as feverfew leaves. Leave it for 30 minutes in a cup of hot water. Strain it and drink the tea as the day progresses. Do this till the pain goes away. Or
  • You can also eat 2 or 3 leaves each day or 
  • You can take dried feverfew leaves and placing it in empty capsules. Taking it as a daily supplement. But it is best to consult your doctor before doing this.
Chamomile

Chamomile is effective in helping to relieve the pain of migraine as it has soothing properties as well as anti-inflammatory and antispasmodic properties. Just by drinking chamomile tea it can help to even prevent getting migraines. It is best to use "german chamomile" as it has proved to be most effective against migraines.


Using chamomile

  • 2 or 3 teaspoons dried chamomile flowers with a cup of hot water. Leave it for a few minutes and you can strain the tea. Now you can add some honey or lemon juice as you would prefer. Drink this tea for at least 4 times during the day.
  • You can mix equal amounts of chamomile, horehound and meadowsweet with hot water in a cup. Leave it for minimum 5 minutes. Strain and enjoy the tea. 


Ginger

Ginger works for the fact that it works against inflammation in blood as well as the brain. Also ginger helps as it blocks the prostaglandins. Meaning it helps as it blocks the substance that helps to promote your muscles to contract thus causing pain. 
Using ginger

  • You can chew a piece of raw ginger during the day till you feel it has helped and relieved the migraine. This should also help to ease nausea and troubling digestive system 
  • Drink tea made with ginger during the day. If you even feel a migraine coming you can make this tea and drink it.
Additional tips and advice
It is also wise to consider relaxation methods such as yoga or even meditation. Try to be more relaxed even if it means finding a space that you can find your balance again. Release stress, that is very important. Also drink lots of water and avoid any foods that you know may cause or trigger migraine attacks. If you don't know what exact food causes it. Make a list of what you ate and cut out an ingredient each time. You will find exactly what helps trigger a migraine attack for you.

As Summer is approaching here. Other parts of the world is starting to feel the effects of cooler weather. Most start thinking of boosting their immune systems. So what is the most effective way to boost your immune system naturally?


For another way to help boost your immune system you can read 

Consider your eating habits.
You are what you eat. Ever heard that saying? So if you try to eat and live healthy it is of benefit to you.  Your immune system need foods that is filled with nutrients. That means consider fruits vegetables and nuts as a necessary part of your diet. Less fatty unhealthy foods and more of the good foods. Avoid sugary drinks like sodas and consider healthier versions.
Consider your stress levels
Did you know that when you are stressed it has an unhealthy effect on your immune system? Your body stays on high alert and it is wearing you down. Now, I know that we live in a stress filled world. But it is good to find an effective outlet for your tension. Such as soothing music, or a massage and meditation. All are healthy ways to get rid of that unwanted stress.
Exercise
Yes I know I keep mentioning it. But did you know that it actually decreases your stress levels? While at the same time improving your immune system. Now there is a reason to consider exercising. Your sleeping patterns
We all need sleep so that our bodies can recover from the day. It is the time our bodies use to repair and maintain itself. But lack of sleep affects the healing which will affect your immune system. 8 hours is considered adequate sleep.
Your patters of socialising 
Yes it is needed to go out and gather with friends and family. It does wonders for your mood and your immune system. For many of us we socialize with our pets. In a study that was done on students it was found that when petting an animal their bodies released more antibodies.  Which improved their immune system and was able to fight infections more efficiently. 
Friendly bacteria
Consider eating friendly bacteria that is good for you. You ever saw on yogurt words like "live cultures" It turns out this is actually good for you. as it improves your immune system. 
Vitamin D
How vital do you think Vitamin D is for your immune system? If your body doesnt have enough Vitamin D your is severely effected and your immune system is at risk  More important how do you make sure you get enough Vitamin D. Ahh the sun, wonderful and such a great source of Vitamin D.  So consider spending some time in the sun without wearing sunscreen. Not long periods and when it is considered high risk. But exposure to sun helps your body soak up that wonderful Vitamin D.
Consider healthy habits.
Good clean habits like washing hands is good for you. Obviously always good to do. Good clean sanitary habits does wonders too. But don't overdo it. Turns out that over-sanitising isn't such  good habit to have. You have a wonderful immune system. Let it do what it was created to do. An ultra clean environment doesn't allow your immune system to strengthen or improve. Yes some exposure to germs is needed as it will boost your immune system while at the same time help your immune system to mature.

Another way to naturally help your immune system is 

These are a few habits will help improve your immune system. But as with everything in life. Balance is needed. 
I hope this helps you and your loved ones too.
