Hi allie,


Migraine is thought to be a genetic neurologic disease caused by overactive neurons in our brains and genetics. Some people never have more than one or two and year while others suffer with Migraine attacks throughout the year.


I am not aware of herbal tea relieving Migraines. If you are using more than bag tea, like roots and what not, please discuss any holistic approach you may start with your doctor. Natural products still interact with our bodies and any other drugs we may be taking.  One site does recommend chamomile:


We also have a discussion forum that you may want to check out. To get to the forum, just look for the orange box marked "Manage" and click on the Migraine Forums link. Because our forums are maintained by a third party, you'll need to register for the forum. You can use the same information you used to create your community log-in if you like.
