6. Peppermint tea
Peppermint, another ancient remedy, has been long used to soothe an upset or nauseous stomach by relaxing nerves and muscle spasm in the gut. An upset stomach is common during a migraine attack, and the gut and brain are intimately connected. According to Migraine.com, the calming and numbing effect of peppermint is thought to be helpful for people who suffer from migraines. Some studies suggest that applying peppermint oil to the forehead and temples serves as a natural medication for a migraine. Soothing the stomach with peppermint tea may also help relieve symptoms of a migraine.
