Migraines are extremely common, and can be debilitatingly painful. While there are certain prescription drugs that can help, it’s also worth considering whether a more natural approach might help. Here are ten of the very best home remedies for migraine headaches, along with instructions to help you use the relevant techniques.
1. Ice wrap
This remedy is both relaxing and pain-relieving. Begin by running water over a towel, then squeeze some (but not all) out. Fold the towel, then place it in the freezer for five minutes, or until the towel stiffens. Unfold it, then refold it, keeping the frozen part in the center and the parts that are still wet on the outside. Place the partially frozen towel on the affected area—you’ll feel immediate relief from the major migraine headache symptoms.
