There is nothing quite as bad as having a migraine. It's not the same as a stress headache, and it's not just like you bumped your head and you'll get an ache from that. And migraine is a lot more painful and takes a lot longer to get over. Some people practice staying hydrated, practicing yoga, and they like to lay down in a dark room with a cold compress on their heads.

There are some people that look into tragus piercings as a way to relieve the pain of a migraine. No matter what you do, though, you need to make sure that you are alleviating your pain as best you can. There are plenty of natural remedies out there that you can use to get rid of your migraines and reduce the risk of migraine symptoms. These treatments can even prevent the onset of migraine attacks from happening if you are using them regularly and properly. With that in mind, let's take a look at some of the natural ways that you can relieve your migraines.

  • Figure out your food triggers. Did you know that your diet plays a huge role in preventing your migraines from happening in the first place? There are plenty of food and drink options out there that can be migraine triggers, such as things like deli meat and hot dogs, chocolate, parmesan and Swiss cheeses, alcohol, and even foods that contain MSG. A small amount of caffeine can ease the pain in migraines for some people, but caffeine is also sometimes a trigger. You have to figure out what your triggers may be in terms of diet and go from there.
  • Use lavender oil. Inhaling lavender oil can really help to ease migraine pain. As an essential oil, it can be inhaled either on its own or with a carrier oil. There have been randomized controlled studies that find that three months of love into therapy works as a prophylactic, meaning taking it before a migraine attack starts helps to reduce the frequency as well as the severity of migraines. The research on this is still limited, but there is nothing wrong with trying.

  • Look at acupuncture as an option. While it may not sound very pleasant to have thin needles injected into certain parts of your skin, it can help to stimulate relief from pain. If you have a history of migraines without an aura you might find acupuncture to be more effective.
  • Use ginger. Ginger has been known to ease nausea over the years for any condition and not just for migraines. It can even have some pain relieving benefits for migraine attacks. There have been some controlled studies that found evidence that ginger could have beneficial activity for those with migraines, and if you are somebody who suffers from them regularly, then using ginger tea and ginger supplements can help.
