Natural Headache Remedies vary from the different types of headaches and person to person. What works for me might not work for you, but what I am going to try to do with this blog is give natural remedies that can help and not harm.

Some people believe that massage works well for relieving headache pain, and for some people it really does, but for some people it causes more pain because massage releases toxins and those toxins are pushed up towards and to the brain and can cause terrible headaches that will last a couple of days. So if you choose to get a massage make sure that it is localized to just the head and that should alleviate the pain. But keep in mind that it depends on the type of headache as well.

Relaxation and Meditation is a great natural remedy also because sometimes the stresses of our busy lives can cause stress or tension headaches, and relaxing and or meditating allows us to settle down, and release that stress and tension.

Heat and Cold are ways to relieve headache pain as well. The alternate use of heat and cold soothes the nerves allowing them to relax and let the blood flow through to the pain. Ten minutes of each for about 30 minutes usually does the trick.

Acupuncture is known to help with headaches (especially migraines) also. Acupuncture is a ancient Chinese treatment for pain, and really helpful with a few visits to a certified acupuncturist.

There is another technique that I have used for my cluster headaches and that is water. I'm not sure how it works for  other headaches, but it does give some relief for clusters. Once I would feel a headaches coming on, I would drink about a liter or water and that calm the pain down, and sometimes get rid of the headache all together.

These are just a few remedies or techniques if you will to help with just about any headache that people suffer from. So if you are like me and you don't like taking a lot of prescription meds, some of these alternative methods might be just what's needed.

I hope this helps

Peace with Love!
