Feverfew, Nature’s Cure for Migraines! Herb information and usage A-Z.

feverfew.jpg           Feverfew is a common herb, well known for its ability to treat migraines. Instead of just masking the pain, Feverfew treats the actual cause by lowering blood pressure, inhibiting the production of histamine, and diminishing two inflammatory substances: Serotonin and Prostaglandins. As a result, Feverfew  controls the inflammation which causes  constriction of blood vessels in the head, and prevents further blood vessel spasms. Tests have shown that the use of Feverfew may reduce frequency and severity of headaches. It is also shown to out-perform many NSAIDS like aspirin, making it a far less toxic alternative.
Feverfew is adept at regulating hormonal responses, such as variations in blood pressure, blood  vessel tone, inflammation and temperature. It also remedies  arthritis, psoriasis, fevers, muscle pain, and muscle tension. Feverfew stimulates appetite, improves digestion, and supports kidney function. It is also used to treat tinnitus, colitis, dizziness and menstrual problems. It is one of the most widely used Herbs for Menstrual cramps, irregularity, and discomfort; Feverfew inhibits the release of inflammatory substances, such as Prostaglandins, which create Menstrual cramps when secreted in high quantities in the Uterus.

It is said that in an extract, Feverfew can relieve coughs, asthma, dermatitis, and worms. Not only is feverfew easy to find and affordable to attain, but it is also (much like other Herbal remedies) a fraction of the cost of the conventional solution. Many doctors recommend Feverfew as an alternative to pharmaceuticals because over extended time, painkillers begin to cause migraines; This becomes  a paradox and vicious cycle. 25 million Americans spend over a billion dollars a year on so-called solutions for migraines, while Feverfew can be effective for over two thirds of those who use it consistently! There’s plenty of reason to add this herb to your apothecary.
