10 Natural Ways to Reduce Migraine Symptoms

Migraines aren’t typical headaches. If you experience them, you know you may experience pounding pain, nausea, and sensitivity to light and sound. When a migraine strikes, you’ll do almost anything to make it go away.

Natural remedies are a drug-free way to reduce migraine symptoms. These at-home treatments may help prevent migraines, or at least help reduce their severity and duration.

Note: Severe migraines may require treatment with prescription or over-the-counter (OTC) medication. Talk to your doctor about a treatment plan that works for you.

1. Avoid hotdogs (but not just hotdogs)

Diet plays a vital role in preventing migraines. Many foods and beverages are known migraine triggers, such as:

  • foods with nitrates including hot dogs, deli meats, bacon, and sausage
  • chocolate
  • cheese that contains the naturally-occurring compound tyramine, such as blue, feta, cheddar, Parmesan, and Swiss
  • alcohol, especially red wine
  • foods that contain monosodium glutamate (MSG), a flavor enhancer
  • foods that are very cold such as ice cream or iced drinks
  • processed foods
  • pickled foods
  • beans
  • dried fruits
  • cultured dairy products such as buttermilk, sour cream, and yogurt

A small amount of caffeine may ease migraine pain in some people. Caffeine is also in some migraine medications. But, too much caffeine may cause a migraine. It may also lead to a severe caffeine withdrawal headache.

To figure out which foods and beverages trigger your migraines, keep a daily food diary. Record everything you eat and note how you feel afterward.

2. Apply lavender oil


Inhaling lavender essential oil may ease migraine pain. According to 2012 research, people who inhaled lavender oil during a migraine attack for 15 minutes experienced faster relief than those who inhaled a placebo. Lavender oil may be inhaled directly or applied diluted to the temples.

3. Try acupressure

Acupressure is the practice of applying pressure with the fingers and hands to specific points on the body to relieve pain and other symptoms. According to a 2014 systematic reviewTrusted Source, acupressure is a credible alternative therapy for people in pain from chronic headaches and other conditions. A separate study found acupressure may help relieve migraine-associated nausea.

4. Look for feverfew

Feverfew is a flowering herb that looks like a daisy. It’s a folk remedy for migraines. According to a 2004 systematic reviewTrusted Source, however, there’s not enough evidence that feverfew prevents migraines. Still, many people claim it helps their migraine symptoms without side effects.

5. Apply peppermint oil

The menthol in peppermint oil may stop a migraine from coming on, according to a 2010 studyTrusted Source. The study found that applying a menthol solution to the forehead and temples was more effective than placebo for migraine-associated pain, nausea, and light sensitivity.

6. Go for ginger

Ginger is known to ease nausea caused by many conditions, including migraines. It may also have other migraine benefits. According to researchTrusted Source, ginger powder decreased migraine severity and duration as well as the prescription drug sumatriptan, and with fewer side effects.

7. Sign up for yoga

Yoga uses breathing, meditation, and body postures to promote health and well-being. ResearchTrusted Source shows yoga may relieve the frequency, duration, and intensity of migraines. It’s thought to improve anxiety, release tension in migraine-trigger areas, and improve vascular health.

Although researchers conclude it’s too soon to recommend yoga as a primary treatment for migraines, they believe yoga supports overall health and may be beneficial as a complementary therapy.

8. Try biofeedback

Biofeedback is a relaxation method. It teaches you to control autonomic reactions to stress. Biofeedback may be helpful for migraines triggered by physical reactions to stress such as muscle tensing.

9. Add magnesium to your diet

Magnesium deficiency is linked to headaches and migraines. Studies show magnesium oxide supplementation helps prevent migraines with aura. It may also prevent menstrual-related migraines.

You can get magnesium from foods that include:

  • almonds
  • sesame seeds
  • sunflower seeds
  • Brazil nuts
  • cashews
  • peanut butter
  • oatmeal
  • eggs
  • milk

10. Book a massage

A weekly massage may reduce migraine frequency and improve sleep quality, according to a 2006 studyTrusted Source. The research suggests massage improves perceived stress and coping skills. It also helps decrease heart rate, anxiety, and cortisol levels.

The takeaway

If you get migraines, you know the symptoms can be challenging to cope with. You might miss work or not be able to participate in activities you love. Try the above remedies and find some relief.

    SHALOM ALL!!! I agree lavender & ginger sound unique together, yet it does work. I buy Dr. YOGI’S GINGER/LEMONGRASS TEA for subsiding heartburn & breaking high fevers. Lavender helps me relax & reduce tired muscle stress. By me having it in the house on a regular basis, my roommate / sister sneaks and gets into my herbal teas. she had a migraine one day, she said the only thing that helped there was that Ginger lemongrass with lavender mixed with it

    Migraines – I had migraines for years associated with stress. I found the lavender oil was helpful; even more so if I applied it and then sat in a dark, quiet room. After I changed my circumstances, I found relief and have been migraine free for 22 years. i did not realize the sources of magnesium that I would much prefer to a capsule.

I know my migraines happen when there is to much pollan or dust in the air or if I’m extremely hungry i get a migraine…. but food fixes that side quickly.

    These are all good things to consider. HOWEVER, if you experience migraine please seek professional help from a neurologist that specializes in migraine. Fever few and magnesium could cause other issues with prescribed medication. Migraine is the third most prevalent illness in the world and the 6th most disabling. Over-the-counter medication overuse is common and could cause a terrible cycle that’s really hard to get out of. Depressions and anxiety are also associated with migraine. A doctor that understands migraine as an illness/disease can be so helpful in finding a plan that you can follow that will help. I am not a doctor, but I’ve suffered for 20 years. About 6 months ago, when the migraine were so brutal, I finally went to a neurologist and worked though a good plan. I still get them a few times a month, but I can manage with new skills and medication. My quality of life is so much better. Talk to someone. Good luck.
