Here is a too simple migraine solution.
I found this treatment in a side note in Men’s Health magazine. It uses cayenne pepper.
I am talking not specifically about migraine headache, but this also works well for ocular migraines and cluster headaches. So say you have a sinus headache or other type headache this is not the answer.
A sinus headache can trigger a true migraine. In that case, this will take care of the migraine, but you will need something else for the sinus headache.
This treatment works very fast. It is like a miracle most often in less than 15 minutes. If you let the migraine go and do not treat it early on, you may need to do two or three treatments. But it will work for this problem. I have never had to do more than three applications. (That was because I let the problem go for a while before I treated it.) It has always worked for me.
In a true migraine the capillaries have constricted. The cheyenne dilates them, and the migraine vanishes the instant when that happens. It is like a miracle.
Anyone who has had a true migraine knows that this treatment is nothing compared to the agony of a full blown migraine. There will be a little discomfort for 15 minutes or less. When that discomfort is over, the migraine almost always is gone.
Here is what you need. A very small amount of cayenne pepper (no other type pepper is known to work). A little water. A q tip/cotton swab.
Dilute a very small amount of cayenne in a small amount of water. I do not measure. I just use a small amount. If you use too much, it, in my experience, will not hurt you, but you will have unnecessary application discomfort. It will still work on the migraine.
Then use the cotton swab to swab the inside of your nose. Go deep into both nostrils. This is not hot like the pepper in your mouth. However your nose will feel raw for about 15 minutes. If it does not feel some amount of discomfort, you have not used enough chayenne. Redo it, in that case, with a touch more.
Now watch for the miracle. If the capillaries have not dilated in 15 minutes, do a second application. Then, if needed a third. If you still have no relief, the headache that remains may not be a true migraine.
One time I was at a cafe when the migraine started. I did not have access to my kitchen. I asked the waiter if they had some cayenne and a glass of water. I am sure he thought I was going to use it on my food.
Since I did not have a cotton swab, I put some water in a spoon and added a touch of pepper. Then I snorted it up my nose. When needed I blew my nose. That worked the same as the swab. (The rest of my meal the waiter watched me out the corner of his eye.)
Once I was having a sinus problem, I was going to flush my nose with salt and baking soda. As I was preparing that solutions, I noticed the starting of an ocular migraine. So I added a little cayenne. That worked perfectly too. I had caught the problem early.
