Migraines: I suffer from stress induced and hormonal cycles of migraines. Seems to be getting worse as I get older.

I refuse to take prescriptions unless it is absolutely necessary. what have you tried as a holistic/natural approach to stop such migraines?

If you know that they are triggered by stress and hormones I would look into ways to reduce stress levels. Then I would do some research on how changing hormone levels and your options. Today there are saliva that you can buy online and do from your own home to see if you are lacking in any hormones. DHEA is a supplement that you might want to read about too. You may also find custom made compounded hormones that are topical an interesting read. Feel Better Soon.

Taking a prescription for a migraine might be necessary if you cant get relief from anything else, try Excedrin at the least, it works great. But if you're opposed to taking any meds then try covering your eyes with dark cloth, lay down in a dark room and use ear plugs. That should reduce the sensitivity to light & sound and help you to relax:)

I used to have horrible migraines. Turns out it was because of Red wine. I have not a had a single episode since i stopped drinking it. Find what triggers yours and cure the source of the problem rather than relying on medications. Do yoga, eat well and drink plenty of water.

That is so funny, I just went to the library and found a book of Yoga for pain relief. I think I need to try yoga. Thanks.
