Migraine headache treatment doesn't always have to involve taking synthetic drugs. If you'd like a
natural alternative to traditional drug treatment, educate yourself on the various natural remedies
for this condition.

Migraine headaches cause severe pain and other symptoms for millions of people worldwide and
result in countless hours of lost work. While migraines are fairly common, proper diagnosis of them
is not, leaving millions to suffer needlessly.

Luckily there are a number of methods available to treat migraines, including traditional medical
treatment using drugs.

Not all of us want to use drugs, however. Some people have other medical conditions that make
the drugs used to treat migraines dangerous to take. Others are taking medication that would
interact poorly with such meds.

Luckily, traditional drug therapy isn't the only option when it comes to migraines. There are a
number of herbal and other natural remedies that an increasing number of reputable physicians
and doctors are recognizing as effective means of treating migraine headaches.

Migraines are caused by inflamed blood vessels in the brain, so many of the remedies for this
ailment work to prevent inflammation.

Let's consider feverfew, for starters. It's easily obtainable, relatively inexpensive and according to
the London Migraine Clinic, feverfew helps prevent migraines by reducing the chance that blood
vessels in the brain will become enlarged. In fact, the clinic found that about 70 percent of patients
treated with the herb in a recent study noted a reduction in the frequency of their headaches.

Acupuncture and massage have also been found to be effective in treating the pain associated
with migraines. By focusing on certain pressure points of the body, a trained, professional
acupuncturist or massage therapist can greatly reduce the pain caused by these headaches. In
fact, according to the Journal of Traditional Chinese Medicine, a recent study found that
acupuncture reduced the frequency of migraine episodes, resulted in less absenteeism from work
and had less side effects than traditional drug treatment. The study also found that long-term,
acupuncture was less expensive than drugs for migraine headache treatment.

Another natural remedy that shows promise is aromatherapy. Peppermint oil has been found to
have pain-relieving properties similar to aspirin when used in aromatherapy. You can use it by
rubbing peppermint oil with a carrier oil like jojoba into your forehead, temples and neck. You can
also benefit from peppermint oil by using a diffuser or a personal inhaler. Some other oils that
have been found to be helpful include lavender and rosemary.

The constant pain and debilitating symptoms of such pain don't have to ruin your life or affect your
career. With the right natural migraine headache treatment, you have options to help get rid of the
pain and get on with your life.
