Feverfew and Migraines


Are you undergoing frequent migraines?

Statistics indicate that migraines bother six out of ten French people on regular basis !

Migraine is a persistent headache that usually occurs on one side of the head, often accompanied by nausea and vomiting.

Are you accustomed to take aspirin or ibuprofen (such as pharmaceutical products: Advil ®, Nuprin ®, Upfen ®) for pain relief ? Unfortunately until now, migraine treatments are essentially symptomatic.


Looking for a natural background treatment to reduce the frequency and intensity of migraines ? Feverfew can certainly do you a great service in this regard. Let us see how


Feverfew – General Information about Tanacetum Parthenium


Tanacetum parthenium and Chrysanthemum parthenium are two botanical names used to designate feverfew. Feverfew is known in France under the name partenelle and is part of the family Compositae or Asteraceae.


This plant is quite distinct from the German chamomile or camomile (Be careful not to confuse them!)


It has been used for centuries in Europe as a remedy for headaches, migraines, arthritis, pain and fever. Because feverfew has been recognized for centuries as a febrifuge remedy (which lowers fever), the English have named it ‘feverfew ‘.


In the 80s, it was very popular in Great Britain and used as an alternative medicine for migraines. Its flowering tops and leaves are generally used.


Active properties and principles of Feverfew


Feverfew contains various known components: an essential oil, flavonoids and sesquiterpene lactones whose main molecule is parthenolide.


Migraine (whose main symptom is pain) is most often the result of alternating contractions and dilation of blood vessels in the brain due to excessive release of a neurotransmitter called serotonin. Disruption of serotonin levels depend on various factors such as stress, blood sugar, hormone levels in women and certain foods.


Parthenolide contained in the flowers and leaves of feverfew is an active ingredient that works by decreasing the action of certain neurotransmitters (including serotonin, adrenaline and acetylcholine) on the small blood vessels of the brain. Thus, parthenolide would act as an antispasmodic mainly by blocking the release of serotonin and would be effective in preventing migraine attacks.


Some scientific studies have shown that some components of feverfew also inhibit platelet aggregation and have anti-inflammatory properties.


Many naturopaths recommend a three-month treatment based on this plant to relieve the frequency and intensity of migraines and headaches.


Bear in mind that feverfew seems equally effective in reducing the intensity of menstrual pain, to reduce fever and to relieve arthritis and rheumatism.

Different uses and dosages


Fresh leaves : Chew 2 sheets per day.

Dried leaves : Consume 50 to 250 mg of dry leaves per day mixed with food.

Infusion : Steep two teaspoons of dried leaves in 250 g of boiling water for fifteen minutes and drink 2 times a day.

Capsules of lyophilized leaves (freeze dried and crushed), standardized to 0.2% parthenolide : Take 125 to 250 mg per day.

Note : It is advisable to stop using the plant for a week after every 4 weeks of use.

Fytomigran® from the laboratory Bional ® combines herbs that help those who are prone to headaches and migraines to stay relaxed and active. This combination of plant extracts (extract feverfew, evening primrose oil, grape seed extract) was formulated to combine relaxation and brain rest. It exerts a relaxing effect on the cerebral circulation. The well-being of the head is also favored by the presence of ginger, which is well known for its anti-nausea effect and for its invigorating and revitalizing properties.


Side effects of and warnings against the feverfew


There were no reports of significant side effects (very rarely mild digestive disorders, nausea, allergies and symptoms of nervousness).

People who chew fresh leaves regularly and long term are exposed to the following side effects: mouth ulcers and loss of taste.

The therapeutic use of Feverfew is not recommended for pregnant women (this may trigger uterine contractions), lactating women and children under two years.


Conclusion on the use of feverfew or Tanacetum Parthenium


Experience indicates that it takes six to eight weeks for the effects to be fully felt. This does not hide in any way the fabulous anti-migraine properties of the feverfew.

It is an excellent background therapy for migraine and has the advantage of not causing the adverse effects associated with taking anti-inflammatory drugs.

The Migraine And Headache Program!


You can have the same program that I got. It’s tried, it’s tested. And it’s easy.

I didn’t need to go out and buy any equipment.

I didn’t need to join a gym – thank goodness.

Not a cent on meds. Not a cent on treatments.

No more doctor surgeries, clinic waiting rooms or consultants’ rooms.

I just stayed at home and did the exercises at odd moments during the day.

One exercise I’d do in the kitchen. Two others I’d do in the bedroom after my shower.

A couple I did while watching television.

Life didn’t stop for these exercises. I just incorporated them into my daily routine.

Now, I do one or two a day at most. I vary them throughout the week.

By maintaining that basic flexibility and balance I know I’m protecting myself for the rest of my life.

I really couldn’t be happier.

Yours is waiting – click below and get it now.
