Lifestyle Changes

Lifestyle changes including stopping smoking, avoiding dietary triggers, reducing stress, exercising and sleeping better have all been proven to improve migraines.

Numerous behavioural and complementary treatments have been trialled in migraine, with only a few such as relaxation training, cognitive-behavioural therapy and biofeedback showing good evidence of benefit. While other complementary therapies may anecdotally help individuals, some of these are not harmless and should be undertaken with caution.
