Feverfew for migraine headaches

Feverfew is now in flower in Seattle.  Feverfew is used in migraine headaches, arthritis, colds and flu.  The whole flowering herb can be used. Feverfew is specific for nervous afflictions and pain related to unequal circulation causing ether too much or too little blood flow.  Migraines are a classic example of this problem as many migraine headaches are the result of changes in the amount of blood flow in the brain.  Other types of headache with this blood flow problem include hormonal headaches, and caffeine withdrawal headaches.  The crude leaf is by far the best for treating migraines and must be used preventively on a long term basis to see results.

Feverfew can also be used as a moth and insect repellant for moths, which frequently invade grain stores and food cupboards!

Results of feverfew’s benefit for migraine headaches in double-blind placebo controlled studies can be seen here and here.
