When headaches become intolerable, many people resort to painkillers to ease the throbbing pain. However, while over-the-counter drugs may provide immediate relief to headaches, the fact remains that the cause of headache remains unaddressed.

It gets worse: A recent report by the BBC stated that “Painkillers are the cause of millions of headaches” – and that the process of taking them may become a ‘vicious cycle’ of medication overuse. [1]

This is a common scenario with over the counter pain killing drugs. They only smother the discomforts and undesirable symptoms of a painful condition. They fail to heal the underlying causes of a particular condition. Through time, many people tend to rely heavily on painkillers for every little ache they experience. Studies show that regular intake of painkillers for an extended period of time may trigger kidney damage and other side effects.

Now for the good news: We found a brilliant “mother ship” list of natural remedies for headaches, with really good explanations. Some of these are so stunningly simple that you may be surprised and overjoyed that the possibility of non-toxic relief is so close at hand.

Certain herbs and spices, like cayenne and feverfew, are thought to be effective in easing headaches and soothing the factors that trigger their occurrence. Aside from herbs, one good way to deal with headache is to relax and engage in exercise in fresh air.

Some studies have revealed that fish oil intake can be beneficial in treating migraines and headaches. Applying an apple cider vinegar compress may also help. Modern day studies revealed that this powerful tonic is useful in treating scurvy, hay fever and headache.

Other tips that can help relieve headache include improved water intake, reduced chocolate consumption, and increased intake of foods rich in Vitamin B3. Also known as niacin, Vitamin B3 plays a vital role increasing the flow of blood by dilating the blood vessels. Insufficient amount of Vitamin B3 in the body is thought to be responsible for the occurrence of vascular headaches.

Applying (diluted) peppermint oil may also work. Peppermint is known for its soothing effect that may help people suffering from headache and migraine. You might also want to munch on a slice of ginger root. Ginger is known for its ability to help people with inflammatory conditions as well as headaches and nausea.

We’ve discussed just a few. Here is the link to the full list of 18:

    Want to try.

    I have been having daily “headaches” for over two years, due to cervical degeneration and 5 bulging discs in my left neck. Forehead, around the eyes, cheekbones, temples, jaw, neck – down both sides and back of the neck and head, both sides of the clavicles and down both arms. Would feverfew and butterbur work for this type of pain. Chiropractic, massage, muscle rubs with capsaicin, menthol, methyl salicylate, arnica, calendula helps some. Heat pads and ice packs help some. Any ideas you have would be greatly appreciated.

    carrotjuice (freshly squeezed or bought, but not from concentrate) helps relieve the pain, if you drink it when the headache starts to occur. i was suffering headaches for years until i became more conscious of my diet. a lot of food supports headaches on a regular basis…better take a distance from dairy products and too much sugar. boiled water in the morning (half a liter, let it cool down so you can drink it) helps to give your body a level of fluids he needs to have enough energy. (drinking too less water supports getting headache)

    AVOID sour/citric things like apple, lemon, orange juice when you have headache (even if you have the feeling you long for it)… it stimulates the headache!

    Carrotjuice is a real wonder remedy i came across online and worked for me in most of the cases!

    I had suffered from migraines for years. Docs had me on all kinds of painkillers and beta blockers as well. Ultimately it was natural stuff from Ayurveda and Homeopathy that cured my headaches. I took Cronidol and Essentials Kit with C140 Migrease Formula from Biogetica for about 6 months straight and they have not come back.

    To Ruth Cobb. My mother has some of the issues that you described and she has headaches. Pain killers helped her only temporary. We started to wear soft neck support. Price in the pharmacy about $14.00

  • By Larissa, January 26, 2014 @ 7:17 am

    To Ruth Cobb . Supporting color helped to my mother. But you have to wear it for few hrs every day. My mother is not wearing color in bed and when she goes out only in the house mostly when she is in sleeting position watching tv. Hope it will help you.
