Herbal Remedies for Migraines
Herbal remedies for migraines can help to bring short term relief as well as long term recovery.
A migraine is a neurological based disorder, and is another example of a condition that is mostly unknown to medical science. Migraines can be caused by many things, which can include poor circulation to the brain, poor system-wide circulation, poor neurological health, poor overall health, or pressure being placed on the nervous system.
The presence of migraines should be an indicator to a person that his or her overall level of health has deteriorated to a significant degree. In addition to focusing on herbal remedies for migraines, steps to improve ones overall level of health should be taken.

A note about Herbal Remedies for Migraines
In natural health and healing, we believe in holistic health and healing, as we realize that different parts of the human body are highly interlinked, often beyond Man's understanding. We also believe that the body has the ability to heal itself of any disease, even supposedly incurable diseases.
In order to do so, the body needs the support of some basic dietary and lifestyle good health habits, such as a full body detox and a proper understanding and application of nutrition. No matter how remote or unrelated a health condition may seem, these fundamental health steps will greatly magnify the effects and benefits of any of our health-promoting efforts, including the use of specific natural health remedies.
Herbs for Short Term Nerve Relief
Some herbs for short term pain relief and nerve calming herbs include St. John's Wort, valerian, blue cohosh, black cohosh, passionflower, and hops.
For nerve pain relief, the way to use these herbs is in a tincture form. To obtain a high quality tincture, you need to make your own, or purchase a formula from a high quality source. These herbs will offer some short term relief, but they will not do anything to eliminate the cause if simply used on their own.
Do note that these herbs are exactly the same as the herbs which can be used for insomnia relief, and you can read more about them by clicking here.
As mentioned earlier, you will need to be aware that while using specific migraine herbal medicine can bring some temporary relief, a truly effective natural remedy for migraine will need to take into account other possible causes of your headaches.
Bowel / Colon Cleansing
The majority of people living in modern, first world cities are badly constipated. A highly constipated bowel can put pressure on the nervous system, and can make a person far more prone to painful headaches, or other nerve conditions. It is thus a good idea to carry out a good bowel or colon cleanse.
Improving Brain Circulation
To improve the health of any area of the body, you need to improve circulation to that area. Poor circulation causes poor health. The top herb for boosting brain circulation is ginkgo biloba, followed by rosemary and kola nut. Ginkgo is an herb that can be taken every day for greater brain health but, unfortunately, most commercial ginkgo preparations are almost worthless.
Improving Overall Circulation
If your overall circulatory system is weak, and your blood is clogged and fatty, you can use all the brain herbs you want, but the results will be limited. While you need to improve circulation to the brain, you will also need to improve overall circulation. Cayenne and ginger are the best herbs for improving overall circulation and strengthening the blood vessels.
In addition, to strengthen the circulatory system, you will need to improve the quality of your blood, which involves colon cleansing, kidney cleansing, liver cleansing, and blood cleansing.
Improving Health vs Treating Symptoms
As mentioned earlier in the article, migraines should be looked at as an indicator of poor overall health. All disease is caused by weak health and a weak body. Thus, while herbal remedies for migraines have a part to play, in order to eliminate migraines, one would probably need to take steps to strengthen the entire body.
If you do this, expect to say goodbye to migraines, and any other symptoms you may have. If you plan on only treating the symptoms with specific nerve and migraine herbs, it is not likely that your condition will improve in the long term.
