Ginger for Migraine

Ginger for Migraine

⁠ Ginger may be an effective home remedy to help alleviate some of the most common and bothersome symptoms of acute migraine in patients who do not want to use or don't have access to prescription medications, new data suggest.⁠ ⁠ Conducted by investigators at the National Institute of Mental Health and Neurosciences, Bangalore, India, the review showed ginger root can relieve migraine-related pain, nausea, and vomiting. ⁠ ⁠ However, the evidence does not support ginger's use as a first-line therapy for acute migraine or for migraine prevention.⁠ ⁠ At this point, study author Chittaranjan Andrade, MD, professor of clinical psychopharmacology and neurotoxicology, told Medscape Medical News the evidence base is still "too small" to support formal clinical recommendations. ⁠ ⁠ However, he added, ginger can be considered as a viable "home-remedy option" for acute migraine.⁠
