Ginger (either eaten fresh daily or in powdered form) is excellent for migraines! The Journal of Ethnoparmacology (vol. 29) reported the results of a research study from the Odense University of Denmark. A woman who had suffered migraines for more than 16 years was given 500-600 mg of powdered ginger mixed with water at the onset of a migraine. Each time her pain would disappear within 30 minutes.

Ginseng has anti-histamine and anti-inflammatory qualities and is quite safe for children as well. If daily comsumption of ginger doesn't appeal to you, you can find capsules in a health food store. For migraine, start out with 2 capsules per day.
