Do you of­ten feel tired and jaded be­cause of your never-end­ing mi­graines? Rather than re­sort­ing to pills and med­i­ca­tions, there are ways to com­bat these headaches, that too, by play­ing it all nat­u­ral.

“A mi­graine can be de­fined as throb­bing pain, which ranges from mod­er­ate to se­vere, in either one re­gion of the head or the en­tire head. The pain can last up to four hours and is at times ac­com­pa­nied by nau­sea and sen­si­tiv­ity to light and sounds,” says Dr Puneet Agar­wal, head of de­part­ment, neu­rol­ogy, Max Hospi­tal, Saket. “What trig­gers a mi­graine and how it af­fects them, varies from per­son to per­son. There­fore, the reme­dies that may work for one per­son may not work for an­other. But, there are def­i­nitely some nat­u­ral mea­sures that can be taken to make sure you can avoid mi­graine-in­duc­ing trig­gers and lessen the pain,” says Dr Jy­oti B Sharma, se­nior con­sul­tant, neu­rol­ogy, For­tis Hospi­tal. From avoid­ing foods that lead to bloat­ing to fight­ing en­vi­ron­men­tal fac­tors like light­ing — here’s a guide to com­bat mi­graine.

“A DIS­CI­PLINED, SCHED­ULED AND A FIT LIFE­STYLE IS KEY TO WARD OFF MI­GRAINE,” STATES DR. AGAR­WAL
