In today’s society medication and pain relief pills are pushed onto people to take for whatever symptoms they are experiencing. With the constant drug use, people build immunity to medication and so when they really need it, it’s not going to help and they’ll have to take higher drug dose than they would have initially needed. Any type of medication is hard on your body and may do damage to organs, so why not protect your body and treat your symptoms with natural cures/remedies? Here are some natural cures for headaches.
Probably the most common reason as to why people have headaches is because they are dehydrated. A headache is a warning sign, letting you know that something is wrong. Most people don’t drink enough water the way it is. Try drinking 4-6 glasses of water every day. This should ease most if not all of your headache problems.
There are also many teas out there that will ease the pain of headaches. Pretty much most herbal teas will do the trick. You could add juice from 3 slices of lemon into your cup of tea. The lemon gives immediate relief.
Boil a handful of rosemary in a liter of water and place it in a mug after it boils. Place a towel over your head and inhale the steam for as long as you can. Keep repeating this till the headache goes away.
Some foods even cause headaches and migraines. If any of these cause your headache, you should consider removing them from your daily diet or at least decrease the amount greatly. Foods like milk, butter, cheese and cream. Some other trigger foods may also include meat products, red wine, caffeine, and chocolate. You should also try to avoid foods with nitrites and sulfites in them. These dilate capillaries in the brain and increase blood flow which causes pain.
Another good thing for migraines is Ginger. It’s already proven that Ginger surpasses the Dramamine drug for nausea. Herbalists recommend 2 to 4 grams of ginger daily for migraines. It has been used for centuries in Asia to treat a number of aliments. You can also make ginger tea by simmering a couple slices of fresh ginger root in a cup of water for 15 minutes.
