Natural remedies for headache

Oh, a headache! Nowadays it is impossible to know a person who has not experienced a headache. In fact, you probably meet someone every day who complains of a headache. And this is not at all surprising considering that the number of people who sleep 8 hours a day, who eat regularly and who manage to reduce stress to a minimum is decreasing.
There are hundreds of different causes that can cause headaches. If you do not want to take a pill at every headache, you can try to cure the headache naturally. Here are some of the most popular natural remedies:

1.Apply a cold compress. Cold compresses act as a local anesthetic. You do not have to have ice, just take the frozen vegetables and wrap them in a cloth. Apply this cold compress on the forehead or temples. You can also use a plain cloth soaked in cold water.
2.Massage with peppermint essential oil on the temples. Peppermint essential oil reduces headaches. But, in addition to the temples, massage it on the neck and shoulders to reduce tension.
3.Put bags of mint tea on closed eyes. Take two tea bags of mint and soak them in warm water. Then lie down, close your eyes and place the bags on your eyelids. Lie down for about 10 minutes.
4.Soak your feet in warm water with a few drops of lavender oil. The warm water will cause more blood to flow to the legs and thus reduce the pressure in the blood vessels throughout the body, including the head. Lavender oil with its aroma helps to relax and relieve pain.
5.Drink chamomile, rosemary or ginger tea. Take a 15-minute break, make tea and drink it slowly in a quiet room. Chamomile tea contains substances that will reduce your pain and help you relax. Rosemary tea is believed to prevent increased pain. Ginger is used to treat headaches and dizziness, and especially helps with migraines. Put two pieces of ginger in half a liter of hot water, cover the pot and let it boil very quietly for half an hour.
6.Drink coffee (or coffee with lemon). Most people grab a cup of coffee at the first sign of a headache. Yes, coffee does help with headaches, but you should not overdo it. One to two cups of coffee can help, but anything more than that can have a negative effect. Many claim that lemon coffee helps even more. Well, it is not bad to drink strong Turkish coffee with a little lemon.
7.Drink two glasses of water. Believe it or not, water can relieve a headache. One of the most common causes of headaches is dehydration. Well, consuming water is one of the simplest ways to treat a headache. To prevent dehydration headaches, drink water regularly throughout the day, especially if you exercise or when the weather is hot.
8.Use the power of the “Hoku” point. Use the tips of the thumb and forefinger of one hand to press the flesh between the thumb and forefinger of the other hand. Press gently and massage that point in a circular motion for 1-2 minutes, then repeat with the other hand. If you are pregnant, do not use this method.
9.Tie a scarf on your forehead. Take a scarf or shawl and tie it tightly on the forehead. You will immediately reduce the headache. Some people recommend that the scarf be soaked in wine vinegar.

ADDITIONAL TIPS
-Eat regularly. Do not allow more than 5 hours to pass without putting anything in your mouth. Headaches often occur due to hunger and you can easily cure it with a small meal.
-Do not smoke or drink too much alcohol. Every smoker has experienced a headache caused by cigarettes. Although many smokers feel that the smoke is harmful to them, they still do not give up smoking. It is no secret that alcohol also causes headaches, especially if consumed in large quantities. Certain beverages, such as red wine, cause much more headaches than other beverages. Well, if you often suffer from headaches or migraines, avoid red wine.
-Sit up straight. Body position is not only important for your bones and your appearance. If you sit incorrectly and squat, the muscles of the neck and shoulders are more tense and this can cause headaches.
-Exercise regularly. Physical activity increases the production of endorphins in the body, and they naturally reduce pain. Experts advise you to practice at least 20 minutes of physical activity three times a week (brisk walking, running, aerobics). If you are in better shape, it is recommended to exercise 5 times a week for about 40 minutes
