Ginger for Migraines.. A Herb For Treating Nausea..

Ginger for migraines can help with migraine nausea.

Ginger has been used for thousands of years for everything from migraines (nausea and vomiting) to menstrual cramps, bloating, loose stools, and even the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis.

All migraine sufferers not only have to deal with their pain, but a curve ball is usually thrown in to. And that is nausea. Nausea and vomiting are just several migraine symptoms. Even for an upset stomach, most everyone at sometime has bought a Ginger Ale for stomach queasiness. Buy something yummy to nibble on, such as gingerbread, gingerbread cookies, or gingersnaps for nausea.

Ginger can be bought in several different forms:

  • Dried root power
  • Fresh root
  • Tablets
  • Capsules
  • Prepared tea bags

Make some ginger tea, that's a home remedy for stomach aches. Not only can you use ginger for migraines, you can take Oil of Ginger for the stomach, and externally for pains like toothache.

Some uses for ginger other than migraines

Ginger is also used for:

  • Lowering cholesterol
  • Preventing sea sickness
  • Aiding in digestion
  • Ability to inhibit platelet clumping

Ginger opens small blood vessels, thus helping migraines, and that would also be useful for someone that has heart disease.

Turmeric and ginger also support the liver. A study of liver cells bred in laboratories showed that the spicy constituents of both plants were able to protect the cells from the destructive effects of a toxic solvent.

Ginger dosage for migraines!!!

If there is a decision to take ginger for headaches, and one is going to take ginger powder, 500mg of dry ginger in capsules is used. But if taking fresh ginger, take five grams, or two and one half teaspoons of fresh grated root, and as the symptoms of migraines start, take the ginger.

Ginger, like aspirin, and other sophisticated antimigraine drugs, affects prostaglandins. That's the body's hormone like substances that help control inflammatory responses, that involve pain, and histamine. Ginger operates much like aspirin, leading to reduction in inflammation, and pain.

Who should be cautious while taking ginger for migraines??

Always consult with a doctor before taking anything different. As we mentioned on our last page on CoQ10 for headaches, these nutrients (CoQ10 resides in the body), and herbs work so well, that along with prescription medicines may have to be monitored. (if any are taken)

Although ginger is recognized as safe, it can cause:

  • Heartburn
  • Bloating
  • Gas
  • Belching
  • Nausea, if taken in powdered form.

Ginger may affect blood clotting, blood pressure, and heart rhythms. Ginger may affect someone that has gallstones because it stimulates the production of bile. Once again, discuss this with a doctor. On a side note, if cooking, using ginger spice lilies as spices for food, there's nothing to worry about.

We have pages on magnesium, vitamins, and herbs that fight and reduce migraines and headaches. All are cost efficient, compared to prescription drugs, with little or no side effects. Within two to three months an improvement in pain may be noticed. Each page on herbs, and vitamins, which are about ten now, are connected at the bottom of our pages, and are worth getting familiar with.

Ginger for migraines taken on a daily bases may keep a migraine sufferer from the pain and nausea that will be had for all migraine attacks. If not taken everyday, buy ginger ale, and also gingerbread cookies and nibble on them for sickness.
