LAFAYETTE, La. (KLFY)– If you’re someone who suffers from migraines or severe headaches there are a few so-called “life hacks” that will help relieve some of that pain.
One is very simple, get a lemon and make a paste out of the peel, then apply that paste to your forehead. The anti-inflammatory properties in the peel will help relieve the pain.
An apple can also help with the severity of a migraine. Eating an apple is great but also just smelling the apple helps.
Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine, Krystal Shelmire, suffers from migraines. She has a couple life hacks that she recommends that she used in the past.
She suggests lavender oil and peppermint oil, which are both easy to carry in a bag.
Rub the oil over your temples, because those are the spots where you usually suffer from a migraine.
Another option to help you with those migraines is the herb, Ginko Bilobo. The herb releases more blood and oxygen to the brain, which in turn helps relieve the pressure from the headaches.
The leaf from the herb is available in extract form or capsule form.
