According to researchers, the primary means of caring for migraines – pain medication – may actually be making the problem worse. When over-the-counter or prescription pain pills are taken more than a couple of times per week, rebound headaches may begin to occur. This progression can turn episodic migraines into a chronic condition. It occurs when a person experiences migraines for 15 days per month or more. Here are a few natural methods that may be able to replace you pain meds.

Natural Migraine Relief

Consider the following 3 ways to fight migraines naturally:

  • Essential Oils – Peppermint, in particular, provides benefits for tension headache sufferers. Since peppermint oil on the head or face can help relax tense muscles, it may also help with migraines. However, high-quality peppermint oil is expensive. In addition, not everyone enjoys the cold sensation it triggers. Nevertheless, it works for some and you may want to give it a try.
  • Daith Piercing – The innermost part of the ear’s cartilage is an acupressure/acupuncture point. It is often used in connection with headaches. As a result, someone came up with the idea of a permanent piercing that activates the pressure point at all times. Unfortunately, this is one of the more invasive natural methods. Also, it has a fairly low success rate, but some who have received benefits swear by it.
  • Upper Cervical Chiropractic – If you had a bad experience with chiropractic care in the past but recognize the science behind the benefits, upper cervical may be the direction you want to go. Rather than rough manipulation of the spine and neck, upper cervical chiropractic involves a low force correction to a very specifically measured neck location. For some, this gentle and long-lasting adjustment has meant an end to migraines.
