Q & A with Susun - Migraine Headaches

Tuesday, May 22, 2018 1:42 PM | Wise Woman (Administrator)

Dear Susun,

I live in Finland, and am trying to find a herbal/alternative remedy for the serious migraine attacks that my wife suffers from. This is a bit of a hinterland when it comes to alternatives, so was wondering whether you could recommend something herbal/botanical that may help, and if so, where one could purchase your recommendation(s) from.?

In anticipation of your help -many thanks


Dear Stephan,

Three possibilities, both may be hard to get there, but who knows, and I will add one you can do at home at the end.

First, a live plant of feverfew. Eat a leaf a day. This is a sure remedy.

Second, tincture of St. Joan's wort (hypericum perforatum; a dose is 25-30 drops) and tincture of skullcap (scutellaria lateriflora; a dose is 10-30 drops.) Take both together as soon as she thinks she might be getting a headache. The earlier it is taken, the better it works.

Dose can be repeated as needed.

Or you can get some clothes pins and pin them onto the very tips of the toes for 10-15 minutes when in pain. Or try the acupressure point in the web between the thumb and the first finger. Press hard for a full minute.

Hope this helps.

Green Blessings,
