One of our young adult children has been having migraines for several years, so I have been searching for possible effective natural migraine remedy for a while. It has also helped keeping a journal of possible food triggers. I suspected excitotoxins contained in food eaten away from home.
I found an early helpful lead in my research at Penn State Hershey. The study states, “Feverfew became popular in Great Britain in the 1980s as a treatment for migraines. A survey of 270 people with migraines in Great Britain found that more than 70% of them felt much better after taking an average of 2 – 3 fresh or dried feverfew leaves daily. Several human studies have used feverfew to prevent and treat migraines. Overall, these studies suggest that taking dried leaf capsules of feverfew every day may reduce the number of migraines in people who have chronic migraines.” Also see British Medical Journal, Vol. 291.
What? – Is this little known information really true? Why aren’t more doing this?
