“Daily meditation may be the most effective way of tackling migraine,” the Daily Express reports.

NHS Choices say "this headline is not justified, as it was based on a small pilot study involving just 19 people. It showed that an eight week "mindfulness-based stress reduction course" (a combination of mediation and yoga-based practices) led to benefits in measures of headache duration and subsequent disability in 10 adult migraine sufferers, compared to nine in a control group who received usual care."
