Long time sufferer- Intranasal capsicum worked for me. Please try it

A Nasal spray consisting of pure chilli extract (capsicum) and water to dilute it, was all it took to cure my multi decade long problem with migraine headaches. Don't just take my word for it though. There has even been reaearch done on this and it was proven to be extremely effective for others too.

    1. Thanks for sharing! I have never heard of this... and I'll admit I'm a bit scared to try it, but if it works, it would be worth it! Do you take it only at the on-set of a migraine?
      Thanks, Lori

      1. Hi MamaBear2! Yes, it is taken at the onset of a migraine! As Allyson shared above, here are a few articles which can tell you a little bit more about this treatment:
