What is a migraine headache?  

Migraine headache is caused by vasodilatation (enlargement of blood vessels) that causes the release of chemicals from nerve fibres that coil around the large arteries of the brain. Enlargement of these blood vessels stretches the nerves that coil around them and causes the nerves to release chemicals. The chemicals cause inflammation, pain, and further enlargement of the artery. The increasing enlargement of the arteries magnifies the pain.

Are there any ways to treat migraine naturally?
There are some simple lifestyle tips to help with the pain.

Massage/Acupuncture
A deep massage to the head and neck can help to relieve stress and tension and help you take the time to stop concentrating on the enormous amount of pain in which you have spent the last several hours. Acupuncture can be of great benefit to some sufferers. As with any treatment, it depends on the client suiting the treatment and it always depends on the therapist. These treatments may not work for every sufferer, but they are worth a try.

Cold compress
Many migraine sufferers swear by the power of a cold compress. Be it in the form of an ice pack or a cold towel, this simple but effective treatment can work wonders. It is not a quick solution, though, and it can often only briefly allay some of the less pleasant symptoms.

Can Food Help?
Foods, like treatments, will work for some and not for others. Some people suggest eating saltier foods, while others might preach the use of Vitamin C and a few even swear by relatively small doses of caffeine. The issue with these remedies, though, is that they can be quite useless in treating legitimate migraines. Food-based remedies tend to work best when one is suffering from a headache occurring due to a lack of eating or from another source. A true migraine will rarely be cured by eating or drinking anything, though it can provide something of a calming effect. If you do choose to use food as a curative, make sure you avoid large doses of caffeine – in most cases, ingestion of caffeinated beverages can make a headache worse, not better.

Darkness and Silence
This is one of the most effective ways to help you through an attack. Of all migraine remedies, most people state that nothing is quite as useful as darkness and silence. If you combine any other remedy you choose to take with a bit of time in the dark, you may find that the effectiveness is far greater than the remedy on its own.

Keep it simple
When it comes to finding headache relief, natural migraine remedies are often the best. You can take the time to seek out information on any number of potential ways to gain relief, but try to remember that the simpler options are often the best.
