If you struggle with migraine then you know that everyone likes to bombard you with treatment ideas. Most of them are pretty basic and are not the migraine cure but offer no consequences either. Like “drink more water” I hear this one a lot! The internet is a great resource for all kinds of strange migraine “cure” suggestions. And then there are those “cures” that go above and beyond your BS meter. A few of these deserve some recognition as the strangest of the strange.
Strange Migraine Cure #1
🌸 Putting your feet and head in hot water while putting a bag of frozen peas on your neck will pull the blood from your head. This will make a Migraine go away instantly!
I somehow don’t think the science on hot water and cold peas making a Neurological Disorder go away will stand up to much testing. (Click here to see for yourself.)
Strange Migraine Cure #2
🌸 Giving yourself a brain freeze will cure a migraine.
Yes, you read that right! Go ahead and eat as much ice cream as you want as fast as you can. Finally, a migraine treatment that won’t require me to give up something enjoyable or do something stupid! (Read the article here)
Strange Migraine Cure #3
🌸 Drinking a mixture of Himalayan salt and lemon juice will cure a migraine.
First, let me say that my husband drinks salt and lemon juice every day…because he love it and swears by this home remedy. But treating a migraine for this is beyond the scope of reason. Why? Because most people that have migraine could NEVER tolerate the taste without vomiting! That in itself makes this one not acceptable! (Learn more here)
Strange Migraine Cure #4
🌸 Eating 10-12 almonds will cure a migraine because it is the equivalent of taking 2 aspirin.
If 2 aspirin will cure your migraine…it isn’t a migraine! Enough said! (See it here!)
The Strangest Migraine Cure
🌸 Placing cabbage leaves in your bra and wrapping cabbage leaves around your legs at night will cure migraine!
This one had me laughing so hard that I almost couldn’t breathe! This is a real thing…there are even YouTube videos about it (HERE and HERE). The theory behind this that cabbage leaves have the same properties as magnets. Because of this they will pull diseases out of your body. Honestly? I think I will pass!
While some of these home remedies might provide slight headache relief that is temporary, it is important to remember that there is no cure for the Neurological Disorder called Migraine!
