Quick Headache Cures

Always consult a doctor if you experience pain, but here are some temporary quick natural and at-home fixes for headaches.

1. Ice Cube on the Face

This will clear your lymph nodes and wake you up a bit, giving you a new sense of energy. Try this morning, noon, or night for a quick pick me up. It’s better than a cup of coffee.

2. Magnesium

Magnesium has a ton of healing properties and specifically targets the blood sugar levels of your body and helps improve the funtioning of your nervous system.

3. Drink Water

Over 80% of our bodies should be filled with water, and you should be drinking 8 to 10 glasses a day. It is effective especially right before meas to deter you from overeating and is also a great pre-snack treat.

4. Don’t Binge Drink Alcohol

This can make your body jittery and tired. It’s best to avoid alcohol altogether if possible. One drink a quarter is fine.

And I don’t mean a quarter to or a quarter after one, this is not happy hour.

5. Avoid High Histamine Food

This includes cured meats, that are typically packed with sugar. Aged cheese is also a factor and you should eat sparingly if at all.

6. Peppermint + Lavender Oils

If you have these essential oils on hand, try putting a dab below each ear or on your upper lip.

7. Try Drinking Caffeinated Tea or Coffee

You make be coming off of a caffeine binge, try drinking a small cup of coffee or tea to get that pick me up or swift kick to the rear.

8. Relax with Yoga or Meditation

Yoga can get weird, but give it a shot as you may have a tension headache.
