Navigating the Tea Aisle for Migraine Relief
Last updated: November 2022
There are a lot of health benefits to enjoying a cup of tea – especially if you’re in the migraine community. My favorite benefit is helping me to relax for a restful night's sleep!
However, navigating the tea aisle can be overwhelming. There are so many options – how do you know which is best?
Should I drink herbal or caffeinated tea?
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 attack 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.
