How To Get Rid Of Migraine Naturally

There are many options for how to get rid of a migraine, and different things work for different people. Try the following ways for how to get rid of a migraine to see what works best for you.

1. Foods that Help Migraines

Foods that can help prevent or treat migraines include the following:

Omega-3 Foods
Organic, Fresh Fruits and Vegetables
Magnesium-Rich Foods
Clean, Lean Protein Foods
Foods with B vitamins

2. Foods to Avoid that Make Migraines Worse

Some researchers believe that up to 40 percent of migraines could be avoided if people improved their diets and avoided triggers. A poor diet, high in things like processed grains and sodium, is one of the biggest triggers for migraine symptoms. Foods that can make migraine headache pain worse include:

Added sugar
Refined grain products
Conventional dairy products
Aged cheeses
Pickled or cured fish
Breads or pastries made with gluten and yeast
Red wine and other types of alcohol (especially when consumed in large amounts)
Chocolate (contains a chemical called phenylethylamine that sometimes causes blood flow changes that trigger headaches)
Caffeinated drinks (for some people, about one cup of coffee or tea daily can help headaches, but withdrawal or drinking more are usually problematic)
Eggs (especially if someone has an unknown allergy)
Artificial food additives and artificial sweeteners, including aspartame
Flavor enhancers and preservatives in packaged foods, including MSG
High amounts of sodium, especially when coupled with low intake of other electrolytes
Very cold foods
Nitrates found in processed meats like hot dogs, cold cuts, salami, bacon and ham
Fried foods and fast foods, especially those made with MSG (such as Chinese food)
For some people, certain types of beans and legumes (including lima beans and snow peas, which contain natural amine chemicals)

3. Essential Oils for Treating Headache Pain

Essential oils for headaches include:

Peppermint: Reduces pain and inflammation. Works by having a natural cooling effect on the skin, inhibiting muscle contractions and stimulating blood flow around the head when applied topically.

Lavender: Soothes stress and anxiety. Can improve sleep quality, decrease muscular tension, and has natural antidepressant and sedative qualities.

Eucalyptus: Improves blood flow, is uplifting, helps cleanse the body of toxins and harmful substances, and reduces high blood pressure and pain.

Frankincense: Lowers inflammation and has numerous benefits for improving overall immune function, anxiety and hormonal balance.

Rosemary: Reduces pain through regulating blood flow, helps decrease withdrawal symptoms of caffeine or medications, aids digestion, and soothes an upset stomach.

4. Natural Remedy Technique

Himalayan Salt

The best part about the Himalayan salt remedy is that it is easy and fast acting. All you need to do is take some Himalayan salt crystals and grind them into a fine powder. Next, mix the powder with lemon juice and drink it! This simply remedy should help relieve your migraine almost instantly. The higher the concentration of salt to lemon juice the better or faster the remedy works. For starters I would start with one tablespoon of Himalayan salt (when crushed into powder not in crystal form) and four ounces of lemon juice. If you find that the remedy is too strong you can either add additional ounces of lemon juice or water (which will dilute the mixture some, but will minimize the taste for you). Try not to exceed eight ounces of fluid per tablespoon of Himalayan salt.
