There are a number of natural remedies for migraines.  Various cures work for different people.  There does not seem to be that one sure thing but remedies likely to help.  Here a listing of suggestions from  which include food to aromatherapy:

Treat from the Inside - Food and Supplements:


  • Calcium - May even help prevent the onset of a migraine. If taking a supplement, aim for 1,000 up to 2,000 mg. (Another added benefit - calcium helps your body burn fat!)
  • Magnesium - Foods rich in this mineral are:
  • Spinach,Halibut,Pumpkin seeds,Oatmeal- (Nuts are good source of Magnesium but include Tyraine which is often a migraine trigger.)
  • Ginger - Mix 1/2 teaspoon of fresh, ginger in warm water
  • Feverfew - Take 250mg a day day of this herbal supplement
  • Complex Carbohydrates - Potatoes with the skin on, wheat crackers, or toast. Helpful for some, yet can trigger a migraine in others.

Aromatherapy - Lavender, Peppermint, Jasmine, or Rosemary have been found helpful. Use in a bath or with massage. Check a health foods store in your neighborhood for these essential oils and directions on usage.

Be Still

Lie down, close your eyes in a quiet, dark room, and just remain still. Let your muscles relax. Focus on breathing slowly.
