A blurb in Psychology Today reports that research shows three months of intensive yoga practice (1 hour a day, 5 days a week) involving meditation and relaxation breathing can reduce the intensity and frequency of migraines as much as 70 percent.

Researchers speculate that yoga, meditation and deep breathing help prevent migraines by raising serotonin levels.
