Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thank you for asking about natural remedies to treat a migraine.

Migraine headaches often begin in childhood, adolescence or early adulthood. Migraines may progress through four stages, including prodrome, aura, headache and postdrome. Not everyone progresses through all four stages.

Muscle relaxation exercises may help ease the pain of a migraine headache. Relaxation techniques may include progressive muscle relaxation, meditation or yoga.

Try getting an adequate amount of sleep each night. It's best to go to bed and wake up at regular times, as well.

Rest in a dark, quiet room when you feel a headache coming on. Place an ice pack wrapped in a cloth on the back of your neck and apply gentle pressure to painful areas on your scalp.

Keep a headache diary. It will help you learn more about what triggers your migraines and what treatment is most effective.

I hope these suggestions are helpful.
