According to the anecdotal literature, Feverfew (Tanacetum parthenium) has been most often used as a prophylactic (preventive) remedy for migraine headaches. The name “Feverfew” has its origin in the Latin word “febrifugia” which means fever reducer. Feverfew has been used in the folk medicine as an herbal remedy for fever, rheumatoid arthritis, and migraine.
