Anyone suffering from migraines knows how painful they can be. From locking yourself in a dark room to cold packs to avoiding any other triggers can be tricky and it also severely hampers one's quality of life. For this reason, a TikTok user has come up with an unconventional way to cure migraine headaches. @andreaeder has suffered from these headaches for the longest time. She is not alone in this as over 35 million Americans suffer from migraines. While migraines are most closely associated with headaches, they also cause other symptoms such as nausea, photosensitivity, dizziness, and tiredness. “Migraines are a neurological disease that involves nerve pathways and chemicals,” as per a Penn Medicine study.

“All you gotta do is get as hot of water as you can handle, and soak your feet in the water,” said Andrea. “A lot of people said mustard. I didn’t have mustard, so I just went the hot water route. When I tell you that four minutes ago my eyes were shaking and I couldn’t see straight…I am forever grateful to the human beings who have shared this on TikTok," she added. As per Gannady Raskin, dean of the School of Naturopathic Medicine at Bastyr University, the hot water distributes blood throughout our bodies and this relaxes our heads. Mustard oil helps relax our skin and remove our attention from the headache, reported ABC News. Andrea's viewers were very happy with the advice as they were tired of trying various ways to get rid of the painful headaches.

Her video has 369.2K likes on it and several comments, as well. @paigeleanneee shared, "People who actually have migraines will try basically anything to feel better! Whatever remedy, hit me with it!" @jacq_sprat wrote, "It's hot water on feet and ice packs on neck/ head." @gyssellr commented, "I probably destroyed my organs from the amount of painkillers taken due to migraines every single day." @_joelove28 expressed, "I used to get the WORST migraines. Vomiting and all. Found out I was vitamin D deficient, I take d3 every day and it’s helped so much."

@neener507 shared her tip, "Start taking turmeric shots. Now I rarely get them. Inflammation is an issue as well and turmeric reduces inflammation in the body. I no longer need it." @psych_nerd89 shared, "Feet in hot water and a cold pack on the back of your neck 100% get rid of migraines." @sophied301 added: "I figured this out when I was a toddler and I used to sit on the bathroom sink and fill it with boiling water and put my feet in."

Many people shared how they have always struggled with migraines and they appreciated the video for offering new solutions to their problems. Others also explain the science behind why warm water would work for migraines and what other remedies help them manage their headaches and various other symptoms associated with migraines. We hope this video helps as many people as possible.
