Rapid Relief Homeopathy for Migraines

Updated: Jan 11, 2023

Migraines can be 'hell on earth'. They are not headaches, migraines can be debilitating and have someone lethargic, weeping and vomiting.

There are various types of migraines, there are migraines with auras and some without. Some have sensitivity to not only light and sound but also smell. Some people are worse for even resting their head down on a pillow, they are better for having the head slightly high.

Always, ask questions such as

  • Am I dehydrated? You would be surprised how many people who suffer from migraines are actually dehydrated

  • Have i eaten? Some people suffer from migraines from skipping meals or having a carb loaded meal when very hungry, these all impact the adrenals which can go onto to trigger a migraine. So check that you eat regularly, do not skip meals

  • Are you having regular bowel movements? Do you eat enough fibre and exercise enough?

  • What about sleep? Sleep is vital for the bod to heal and repair. We all need this crucial time, so no cheating, no going to bed with a mobile phone or computer screen

  • Do you have trigger foods? Cheese, wine, chocolate, tartrazine (a food colouring found in drinks)

There is also the migraine personality that some who experience migraines can present with. This is someone who is 'go-go, push-push', get things done. Does not delegate, just martyrs on. Can be quite ambitious and driven. Can be reliant on stimulants such as coffee or sugar etc. Learn to look into this, what is behind the 'go-go', can you share the load? Can you slow down?

Ensure you are sleeping enough, drinking enough GOOD quality water, eating regularly, avoiding the trigger foods and work on balancing blood sugar. Below are some Rapid relief homeopathic remedies for migraines. These are a handful of the most common that we have experienced. The best way to take a remedy for such an intense, acute pain is to put one pill of the

indicated remedy into a glass of water. It doe snot matter how much water, but for ease say 100ml. Stir with a metal spoon, and take a teaspoon. Wait and see, if the symptoms become slightly less intense, stir and take another teaspoon. The migraine should clear within a few teaspoons if the correct remedy is taken. If there is no change, review the remedy and change it and repeat. For intense acute pain, a remedy (or teaspoon of water) can be taken 15 minutes apart. As soon as the migraine eases, then reduce dosing or even stop.

Sometimes after taking the correct remedy, one may fall asleep or have a discharge such as have a bowel movement, or have the need to empty the bladder, vomit and then the migraine should clear.

It feels like magic when the correct remedy is taken, as the migraine literally eases within minutes.


Some of the common homeopathic remedies used for rapid relief from migraines:
