How Tea Time Can Help Relieve a Migraine Attack

When I was in culinary school I was getting terrible migraine attacks. I didn’t realize that some of the food we were sampling from other students had one of my migraine triggers in them. Thankfully one of the chefs was trained in Ayurvedic medicine and suggested I make ginger tea.

Ginger tea

Ginger tea is great for reducing inflammation in the body and can help alleviate migraine pain. Since then this has been my go-to drink if/when I feel a migraine coming on.

    Nice report – and yes, ginger is great – there is actually a study showing that when taken at the first warning sign of a coming migraine, ginger works as well as sumatriptan. The study used powdered ginger capsules, but I prefer tea.
