Do you suffer from migraines every now and then?2

Guest contributor Joel Cordle shares some natural remedies that you can use to keep migraines at bay.

Migraines can happen at any time of the day.

They sometimes come without notice.

Most people who experience a migraine are often crippled for the entire day.

People usually take pain medication to relieve migraine symptoms but even that may not be enough to subdue it sometimes.

Why not try these natural remedies when you have your next migraine attack?

1. Exercise

Exercise is one of the few natural ways to reduce the frequency of migraines and it may even lower the pain you feel during a bout of migraine.

In 2011, a research from the University of Gottenburg in Sweden discovered that people who do aerobic exercises are able to prevent more bouts of migraine than the preventative medication topiramate.

One-third of the patients in the study exercised on a stationary bike three times a week for forty minutes and had no migraine attacks during that period.

Exercise triggers the release of endorphins which is known to relieve tension.

2. Feverfew

Feverfew is a herb that is related to daisies and is widely used by traditional Chinese doctors.

It is used to prevent migraines and other types of headaches.

One of the feverfew plant benefits is that it lowers the pain associated with migraine by reducing the inflammation process.

Feverfew also has minimal side effects.

It also helps with vomiting and nausea that may accompany a migraine attack.

3. Omega-3 Fatty Acids

Omega-3 fatty acids are known to be a natural anti-inflammatory substance.

A Swedish study saw more than a 28% reduction in pain when patients ate foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids.

Examples of these foods include fish such as salmon, tuna, herring, nuts, and seeds.

Omega-3 fatty acids also help protect the brain from damage and reduce the inflammation process.

It also helps to reduce the frequency and duration of migraines.
