1. Ginger tea
Ginger has been used medicinally for thousands of years to treat nausea and even migraines. Since nausea and vomiting often accompany migraines, ginger may be helpful for stomach upset. In 2014, a study published in the Journal of Phytotherapy Research explored ginger for migraine relief. Researchers found that ginger was just as effective as Sumatriptan, a medication used to treat migraines and cluster headaches.
Ginger is safe when used in reasonable amounts, and is definitely worth a try as an inexpensive and simple remedy for migraine pain. To make ginger tea, take a piece of whole, unpeeled ginger root and grate one heaping teaspoon full. Stir the ginger into a cup of hot water, and allow it to steep for two minutes. Add one teaspoon of raw honey and freshly squeezed lemon juice to taste.
