I get migraines with an aura that comes before the headache starts. Some years ago the aura started when I was in yoga class. I kept going into a wide-legged forward bend. After the aura wore off - no headache! Now whenever the aura starts I bend forward for a few minutes, and have never had the headache since. My doctor thinks it helps by redirecting the blood flow. Works for me.


I had been suffering migraines weekly and my doctor started me on 400mg of B2/riboflavin daily and I haven't had one since! Along with some lifestyle changes that have decreased my BP, I think the B2 has really helped!

Watch out for the triptans suggested above, they often result in rebound headaches the next day.

Dr Joel Fuhrman, of PCRM, has reported much success in using elimination diets to produce relief from headaches. From what he and others say, I get the impression that many headaches start in the internal organs--as a result of pollution of those organs. I think that the remarkable Dr Bernard Jensen would be included in this school of thought.
