Cure Headaches and Migraines Naturally
One of the benefits of natural cures compared to over-the-counter products is the lack of side effects.

Here, we discuss some great natural remedies for curing your headaches.
Easy Remedies for Curing Your Headaches Fast
Large Glass of Water – No joke. It’s that easy. Dehydration is one of the most common causes of headaches, so a glass of cool, clear water might be all you need to start relieving pain.
Relaxing, Resting, and Sleeping – Another simple way to reduce headache pain that’s surprisingly often overlooked is simple rest, relaxation or sleep. A headache can be your body’s way of telling you that you’re overworked, stressed, or tired. Just lie down in a dark room, shut your eyes, and relax or sleep. After you’re finished, try our remedies for reducing stress to prevent further pain attacks of this type in the future.
Deep Massage – A firm massage on the head, face, and neck can quickly get rid of headache pain.
Water Bags – Apply a cold (or hot) water bag to the back of your neck (or wherever the pain is located) and allow it to sit for about 5 to 10 minutes. This technique should help reduce any inflammation, not to mention help numb the pain a bit.
Aromatherapy – Sandlewood, peppermint, eucalyptus, lavender, and a wide assortment of other natural oils can be used to reduce, if not completely eliminate pain. These scents can be found in oils, candles, and even soaps.
Pay Attention to Your Food – Everyone reacts differently to foods and the ingredients they contain so it’s important to take a close look at what you’re eating and when the head pain occurs. You’ll know which foods to avoid in the future.
Sauna Belts – Putting a sauna belt on your head should help alleviate your pain quickly.
Take a Hot Shower – Stand in the shower and allow the hot water to cascade down your neck and back. This should loosen your muscles and allow for better blood flow.
Boost Calcium Intake – Foods that contain calcium and especially Calcum supplements help to alleviate pain by increasing bloodflow and relaxing your muscles. A large glass of orange juice may suffice if you don’t have immediate access to a calcium supplement. Some exercises may also increase your bloodflow and circulation which will also help with pain.
Pressure Points – Find where the bones of your index finger and thumb meet (the fleshy area). Apply pressure to this spot for 2 minutes. Trust us, it works.
