Dr. Oz to the Rescue!

Posted by on Jan. 22, 2013

A migraine headache is a one-sided throbbing pain which causes sensitivity to light and sound, and in some cases, nausea and vomiting. Migraines tend to run in families and women are three times more likely than men to experience them. Many experts believe that these awful headaches are caused by nerve signals that the brain misinterprets as pain.

For Dr. Oz, he suggests feverfew, a derivative of the sunflower family. It reduces inflammation, which in turn takes pressure off the nerves, thereby helping to prevent migraines completely. Feverfew costs around $12 and is available in capsule form.

Another option is acupressure massage, an ancient Chinese healing method that applies pressure to certain points on the body to relieve pain. For relief from migraine, place your finger in the depression between your first and second toe and press firmly for three to five minutes.
