Home remedies to help you handle a migraine

How to handle migrainesThere is nothing worse than having to waste a day lying in a dark room with your head throbbing so hard that it feels like it is going to break free from your skull.  I know because I have been there.  A bad migraine can be debilitating and it can even sometimes cause someone to vomit.  That is why I have tried and tested every possible remedy for migraines.

Curing your migraine starts by trying to determine the trigger that caused it.  For example, I get an incredibly painful headache every time that I try to give up coffee.  I know caffeine is not an ideal habit for my health, so I have tried several times to quit it cold turkey.  If I get a migraine from caffeine withdrawals then sometimes all it takes is a coffee and the pain will go away.

Migraines and headaches are also often caused by dehydration where the solution is as easy as drinking plenty of water.  Tough physical workouts can quickly cause dehydration and a resulting headache, if you don’t drink enough water while you are exercising.  That is why it is so important that you drink water before, during and after any type of exercise.

There are many other triggers of migraines including environmental stimuli, bouts of physical or emotional stress and other nutritional deficiencies.  Migraines can also be caused by allergic reactions, bright lights, loud noises, and certain odors or perfumes.  Sometimes it is because of changes in sleeping patterns, especially if you have recently experienced a lack of sleep.  The cure for a headache caused by a lack of sleep is of course, get more sleep!  The pain is a sign that we have deprived ourselves of something we need.

Migraines and headaches are also our body’s way of handling changes.  If you quit smoking or if the opposite is true and you have been exposed to an abundance of smoke, it can cause your head to pound.  Other internal changes like a woman’s menstrual cycle fluctuations, starting or quitting birth control pills, or hormone fluctuations during menopause can cause a migraine,

There are also certain foods that contain compounds like tyramine (red wine, aged cheese, smoked fish, chicken livers, figs, and some beans), monosodium glutamate (MSG) or nitrates (like bacon, hot dogs, and salami) that can cause migraines in some individuals.  It is important that you pay attention to what you ate or did prior to the migraine, do you can decipher what may have brought it on.

If you can’t figure out the root cause of your migraine, there are other options besides aspirin or other pharmaceutical treatments.  Some people claim fish or peppermint oil works, and others find relief by simply putting a cold compress on their forehead.  Hopefully you can find ways to prevent it from happening, but at least now you have options to try other than wasting an entire day in pain.
