MigraSpray is a patented, homeopathic medicine that is supposed to treat and prevent migraine headaches.
Since MigraSpray promises to be a natural alternative to the harsh chemicals that are sometimes found in migraine treatments, we decided to investigate this product to see if it is really effective.
Not only does MigraSpray say that it can help relieve migraines, but it also claims to treat tension headaches and hangovers.
It also claims to be a powerful enough formula to immediately treat migraine attacks. According to its website, a double blind trial showed that MigraSpray helped relieve 88% of the patients in less than 7 minutes.
The main ingredients that MigraSpray depends on are feverfew, goldenseal, dandelion and larch agaric.
Feverfew, although its name reveals its original use to relieve fevers, has not been proven to be very effective against migraines.
Migraines are different than fevers and most other headaches. Although each person’s specific triggers differ, most migraines are due to nerve clusters and not to inflamed blood vessels, like so many fevers are.
Goldenseal, another ancient herb has actually not traditionally been used to relieve migraines, fevers, or even pain. In fact, goldenseal was most often used as a mild carpet cleaner. There are still some parts of the Middle East that still use it.
Because goldenseal has not been traditionally used to treat any sort of pain, we have our doubts that it can work against the mighty migraine.
Despite the fact that MigraSpray has some accounts of trials done where this homeopathic remedy saw phenomenal results, we’re not as easily convinced.
The studies conducted with MigraSpray were heavily biased and conducted by its own manufacturer.
Although we like to see a migraine treatment that doesn’t resort to harsh chemicals, we like to see ones that are actually effective. Because of this, we can’t recommend MigraSpray.
