Natural Solutions for Migraines

Migraines can be debilitating.  For some, the occurrence of a migraine means laying down, curled up in a dark room for hours on end while their head throbs away.  While head pain is the most pronounced symptom other things like light and sound sensitivity, nausea and vomiting and general fatigue are not uncommon experiences.

Many are reluctant to take the powerful pharmaceutical agents that are often recommended to help alleviate the symptoms of a migraine. They can have unwanted side effects that can outlast the migraine itself.  There are natural options that exist.

Recently, the American Academy of Neurology and the American Headache Society reviewed the evidence that exists behind drugs and behind some natural treatments for migraines.  They found there is good evidence of effectiveness for a range of natural products to reduce the severity and occurrence of migraines.  For more information, watch below!
