In brief: Yes

Some supplements that help prevent migraines: coenzyme q, riboflavin, butterbur. There's been conflicting information about feverfew & magnesium.
Chinese medicine/acupuncture may help. Try it for at least 2-3 months before you give up. Remember to eat right, get moving 30-60 minutes every day, and sleep well.

In brief: Feverfew, butterbur

Both feverfew and butterbur (petadolex) can prevent migraine headaches.
We conducted a large blinded study of butterbur and showed that 150 mg dose was very effective, while 100 mg and the placebo were not. Ginger is a good herb for the treatment of nausea and it was also shown to relieve muscle aches http://www.Migralex.Com/ginger-reduces-muscle-pain/.
