Finding A Natural Way To Get Rid of Migraines

By: michaelbyrd
For the more than 25 million people that suffer from disabling migraine headaches, finding a natural way to get rid of them is essential.

However, there are all-natural things you can do to relieve migraines and bring you both immediate and long-term relief.

What are your pain relief choices right now? Well besides throwing up or taking dangerous pain killers pills, your only other options seem to be finding a place that's dark and quiet, closing your eyes and suffering through the pain.

Anyone who has ever suffered from migraine headache pain knows exactly what I'm saying.

Now, scientists can't pinpoint an exact cause, but most migraines seem to be initiated by a glandular system that's out of balance, tension, stress or even by certain food or medication triggers. Some of the most common food triggers are chocolate, caffeine and alcohol.

You'll find that by isolating and removing the triggers from your life you'll help prevent future headaches.

Another thing you can do to reduce your risk of migraines is to improve the quality of the foods you're eating. Your goal is to remove all of the packaged and refined foods and replace them with good natural whole foods.

What kinds of foods am I talking about? I'm talking about the basics of brown rice, whole wheat and natural soy. You'll no longer be eating white rice or pasta, enriched wheat or soy that's been genetically modified. Essentially, these refined and altered foods offer you only empty calories and no nutritional value.

Colorful fruits and veggies are also part of a healthy whole food diet. But don't think you can get away with things like fruit juice or those fake fruit rolls you find in the grocery store. They're just not whole food and your body can tell the difference.
Your whole food diet should also include low fat dairy (like yogurt and cheese), free range eggs, lean chicken and fatty fish.

Even if you can only make small changes to your diet, it's absolutely vital that you include the fatty fish like salmon, tuna, mackerel and sardines. They include the very important omega 3 fatty acids which scientists and researchers have proven to have a very beneficial effect on migraine pain relief.

And finally, adding a high quality, pure fish oil supplement to your diet can make a significant positive difference for anyone with a migraine problem.

Studies show that omega 3 fish oil has amazing natural anti-inflammatory benefits. So if you take your fish oil supplements regularly, there's a very good chance that you'll see an immediate reduction in the frequency and severity of your migraines.

You may even find that if you take some fish oil just as you feel a migraine coming on, that you may be able to stop it from becoming full blown.

So get yourself on a whole food diet that includes plenty of fatty fish or a fish oil supplement and you'll be amazed at how good you feel. Migraines will be a thing of the past!
