Migraines – A Natural Approach

Although more than eight million people in the UK are affected by migraines, no one is sure exactly what causes this debilitating condition. The good news is, is that there are still plenty of ways to prevent and help treat migraines naturally and in recent years there has been a huge demand from the public for drug-free remedies to help manage and alleviate them.

We look at four natural ways that can help prevent and treat migraine attacks:

1. Vitamin and herbal supplements

Some nutritional supplements have been shown to help; these include Magnesium, Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) and Riboflavin(also known as vitamin B2). There are also studies that taking the herbal supplement Feverfew on a regular basis can provide a modest improvement in migraine symptoms.

2. Acupuncture

This traditional Chinese medicine seeks to restore the flow of positive energy throughout your body through the insertion of very thin needles into pressure points on your body. It also claims to remove negative energy that is causing you pain. From a modern medical perspective, acupuncture stimulates various systems of your body and this may trigger a healing response.

3. Magnets

There is plenty of anecdotal evidence to suggest that magnetic therapy can help migraine sufferers. We receive regular reviews telling us how our magnetic bracelets have helped with migraines;

“This was bought as a replacement for a lost wristband which my son had been wearing for over a year. He has seen a marked improvement in his migraine symptoms and wouldn’t be without it. Would recommend to others.” ~ E Harriman

“The magnetic properties of this bracelet have changed my life by reducing my migraine occurrences to once per month vs once per week and the pain is less than half.” ~ Nadia

Another type of magnet therapy is TMS – Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation. Recently approved by NICE (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence), this treatment involves holding a device on the scalp that delivers a magnetic pulse through the skin. The device is portable and can be used at home or wherever is convenient.

4. Exercise

Previous studies have suggested that frequent, gentle exercise helps to reduce tension and ward off stress, a well-known trigger. Exercise also triggers the release of endorphins, which act as a mild sedative. Yoga, jogging, swimming, cycling and brisk walking are all low intensity activities that are recommended for migraine sufferers.
