Natural Remedies for Headaches

They kill your days.

Headaches are a menace. They don’t let you focus on your tasks. They don’t let you be productive at work. And, when you get home all you can do is stay put until the pain fades away.

Natural Remedies for Headaches

Everyone experiences headaches. Children experience it, and adults have them all the time. Stress is usually the culprit. And when you have a dozen responsibilities that you need to take care of, it’s hard not to come across a headache every now and then.

Popping a pill to take the pain away isn’t the best way to get rid of a headache. After a while, especially if you experience headaches all the time, you’ll become immune to whatever is in those pills and it’ll be even harder to get rid of those pesky headaches.

There are natural remedies for headaches that are pretty effective and cost effective.

Here are some of the best natural remedies for headaches that you need to give a try:

  1. Hot/Cold Compress

The good ole’ hot or cold compress works wonders. While there are no scientific studies that prove the effectiveness of a hot/cold compress, many people swear by this traditional method of getting rid of headaches.

  1. Feverfew

When it comes to headaches, this is probably the most popular natural remedy to get rid of the pain.

Feverfew, also known as tanacetum pathenium, contains certain compounds such as parthenolides which help blood vessels in the head expand and contract, taking away the ache of migraines.

  1. Lavender Oil

If you thought that lavender oil was just for massages, aromatherapy or making a room smell great – you’d be pleased to know you were wrong. Lavender oil is also great for curing headaches!

  1. Vitamin B2

Vitamin B2, also known as Riboflavin, can also help get rid of headaches and migraines. The recommended amount is around 400 milligrams daily. So, if you’ve been getting a lot of headaches or migraines lately, it’s time to add mushrooms, venison, liver, spinach, nuts and dairy to your daily diet.

  1. Water

Water can also help get rid of headaches. Most headaches are actually triggered by a lack of water intake or dehydration. So, make sure you drink at least 8-10 glasses of water a day. If you need help keeping track of your water intake, get a 1.5 litre water bottle and fill it up with water. Make sure that you finish the bottle by noon. Refill the bottle for your afternoon and evening intake.

There are a lot of natural remedies that can help you get rid of common pains and aches. All you have to do is do a little digging and learn what herbs, spices, fruits, food and fluids there are to help you achieve better overall health.
