Long Forgotten Garden Weed Provides An Alternative Remedy for Migraine Prevention Thursday 24 January 2008 PDF Print Nicholas Culpepper, England’s most famous 17th Century physician reports on the many uses of feverfew leaf in his book, The English Physitian (published in 1652) and modern-day herbalists have traditionally used the raw leaves chopped and consumed in a sandwich to stave off headaches and migraine. Although Feverfew leaf can be found growing in many of our gardens, a more modern and convenient way to take the herb is in capsule form. If you are one of the 15% of the UK population who suffer from migraines, then herbal help from the newly registered herbal medicine MigraHerb® may be the answer to fewer and less severe migraines. MigraHerb® is the UKs only herbal medicine that has been granted registration by the MHRA and licensed as a traditional herbal medicinal product used for the prevention of migraine headaches. This usage is based on traditional use only. Up until this registration, the quality of feverfew products on the market was unknown. The registration of MigraHerb® gives assurance that it has been thoroughly and independently assessed and deemed a herbal medicine that is safe, of high quality and provides reliable patient information for the prevention of migraine headaches. Studies have shown that taking Feverfew leaf daily (not extract) can safely and effectively help to reduce the frequency and severity of migraine attacks and decrease nausea. One hundred Migraine Action Association members took part in a survey taking one feverfew leaf capsule daily for two months and the majority (60%) found that their headaches became less frequent and milder, with many describing themselves as migraine-free, and 64% stated they would continue to take the supplement. MigraHerb® is available from Boots priced £7.99 for 30 one-a-day capsules or mail order on 01453 751395 and www.sunshinehealth.co.uk. For information on herbs click onto www.herbfacts.co.uk.
