Does drinking tea help alleviate your migraine symptoms?

Herbal teas for migraine attacks

If you’re like me, caffeine can be a big trigger of migraines, so I choose herbal tea. It’s naturally caffeine-free, unlike decaffeinated tea which still has a low level of caffeine. I also like to choose calming teas like chamomile to enjoy at night, or ginger to tea to settle any feelings of nausea if/when I do get a migraine.

During a migraine is one of the few times that caffeine may actually help. This can potentially help bring some relief. So, having one box of regular tea can be helpful to have on hand.
