Migraines are annoying and there's no denying it. Not only does it cause throbbing pain in the head, but it can also cause nausea and restlessness.

Its severe form can lead to exhaustion as the body becomes sensitive to everything from light to touch to smell. Although professional medical care is usually recommended, migraines can be greatly relieved by following certain tips. We have put together a selection of natural remedies that can be used for migraines.

Stretching helps to get rid of migraines

There are certain stretches, albeit gentle ones, that can help control migraines.

Here is one of the simplest: relax your body in a sitting or standing position. Gently tilt your neck to the right and stretch your left arm up. Hold for 30 seconds and repeat the same in the opposite direction. Do this several times.

Child's pose and needle bend stretching also help

Bend your legs and arms. Stretch your left arm outward and slowly bring it under your right arm. Touch the mat with your left ear. Hold for 30 seconds and repeat with your right hand.

Alternatively, get on your knees so that your buttocks touch your heels. Keep your spine extended and lean forward with your arms outstretched.

Some lifestyle and dietary changes are needed to treat migraines

Experts say that insomnia is the main cause of migraines. So make it a habit to stick to a daily routine. Sleeping in a quiet, dark room can help alleviate your problems. If you can't sleep, meditation will also reduce physical pain.

Avoid work stress by taking breaks every 30 minutes. Also, eat small, healthy meals periodically.

These tips can prevent a migraine attack from occurring

While you can't cure this chronic disorder, there are some things you can do to prevent it from happening:

– avoid drinking alcohol and coffee, as they dehydrate the body, which increases pain.

– you should also avoid food triggers such as chocolate, cheese, and dairy products.

– keep track of your hormonal levels, as fluctuations can cause headaches.
