Try drinking lavender tea, hot/warm. Lavender will relax the muscles. Mostly headaches are caused by mussel tension, do drinking lavender will relax you. Also, don't use ice, it will cause stabbing cramps and may make the pain worse. You can use a hot pack or use a warm damp towel and put that over your face/temples. This will relax your face. happy healing!


Drink a coke! Sometimes your body lacks endorphins found in caffeine. It works for some headaches, but not all.


Drink some dill pickle juice. Most headaches are caused by dehydration and loss of sodium in the body. Make sure the pickles aren't sodium free. Best choice is Bicks Dill Pickles with garlic. The garlic probably helps too being a natural antibiotic.


If you have a headache that is terribly painful, try pinching the top of your nose, I was sitting at my computer, I had a very painful headache and for some reason I pinched the top of my nose and it was gone in about 5 minutes, I literally just sat there with my fingers on the top of my nose! This remedy will work on some headaches, but if it doesn't, then it will certainly relieve a lot of tension.


My remedy is the local Urgent Care where I get a shot of phengran and Toradol. Most of the time it works. I hve tried a number of medications and rarely does anything else work if my migraine is really bad. I have always had migraines but they seemd to get much worse after a tubal ligation I had at age 43. My husband tooke me to the ER at least once a month until I completed menopause. Once completed they lessened to about one every 3 months. I honestly believe the tubal was the cause due to an imbalance in my hormones after it.


A cold towel (either placed in the freezer for a couple of minutes or really cold water) placed over your eyes, with another cloth balled up under the base of your neck to add pressure while you sleep.

Headaches are a nuicance, but can be taken care of with some simple remedies:

Avoid bright lights, and loud noises or music.

Closing your eyes while slowly breathing in and out, while pinching the skin between your thumb and index (pointer) finger with your other thumb and index finger. Remember, if you dont feel a slight pain or pinch when you do it, it's not doing anything.

Another is to just simply sleep :) It usually relieves itself after a good night's sleep (or nap) unless it's really bad.

Hydrating yourself always helps.

Rub the affected area with slight pressure, constantly, for a few minutes.

Cold showers or hot baths :P

Just relax! Relax and think positive thoughts!

Massage your feet with pressure

Eat an apple. The natural sugars in it help your headache go away. This reigns true for all fruits, so you're not just limited to apples.

Tug on your earlobes. This doesn't usually help me, and leaves me with itchy earlobes afterward but with some other people it works. Maybe it'll work for you. It's worth a shot!

One of my personal favorites is making hot peppermint tea and putting some honey in it. While you're drinking, inhale the minty scent! :)

A moist hot towl around the neck, forehead or back of the head.

Gently pulling your hair at the affected area.

Items that help get rid of headaches:
Peppermint (Oil or otherwise)
Water (cold or hot)
Ice (or anything cold. Chewing ice helps or you can put something cold against the affected area)
Herbal Teas
Coffee, Soda (If you look at any meds they will most likely contain a high amount of caffiene which is something that helps headaches)
Dark Chocolate

And if all that doesn't work, you can takes some pills or go see a chiropractor, a masseuse, or a doctor! Wishing you the best of luck!


headaches- rubbing your feet, works much better if you have someone else do it but can be done by yourself .. works really well for children .. you have pressure points all over your feet that help with almost any aches or pains ... rub fairly hard and allover not sure of exact points but what does that matter it feels good to have your feet rubbed all over anyway .. enjoy
