Headaches can be extremely annoying and sometimes popping pills isn’t something we want to do, so how do we rid ourselves of them the natural way?
Headaches are an unfortunate health complaint that we’ve all had at one point or another. For some of us, headaches can be a rather regular occurrence and reaching into the medicine cabinet for pills isn’t always what we want to do, but with nothing else at our disposal, that’s what we’re forced to do. Thankfully there are natural options that won’t require any pill poppin’ nor a liver detox to get the painkillers out of your system. Here are natural ways in which you can cure a headache the natural way.
- Alternating Temperature Showers – Hop in the shower, turn on the cold water for two minutes, then switch to warm for two minutes, and continue to alternate back and forth. This stimulates our circulation system and helps circulate oxygen to our brains relieving our headache.
- Peppermint Oil – Antispasmodic properties in peppermint oil helps relieve muscle spasms and tension. Simply place one drop on your finger and glide it across your forehead from temple to temple.
- Water – Many times, headaches are caused by dehydration. Have you had enough water to drink for the day? If you can’t remember the last glass of water you had, it’s time for a sip. When your body doesn’t have enough water, it may be forced to deplete the brain’s source and cause a headache.
- Acupressure – If you are not a fan of needles, you can simply use pressure to help release tension in your body. Apply pressure between your eyebrows, and around your temples.
