Home remedies to ease migraine pain

Healthcheck on Action News

When migraines and headaches strike, you might not need to reach for medication.

Some home remedies can help, too.

Ice packs and cold compresses can reduce the throbbing pain.

A little caffeine can provide mild relief, but be careful - too much can lead to more headaches.

Essential oils like lavender - applied directly, or in an infuser - can also lessen pain.

High-magnesium foods like whole grains and dark green veggies, and those high in Vitamin B-2 can help ward off migraines.

And aim for 7 to 8 hours of sleep a night.

More, or less, can trigger headaches.
