6 Ways to Ease Headache Symptoms
The first week of June is National Headache Awareness Week, so before you reach for prescription meds, consider a more holistic approach to curbing those nasty headaches.
For a tension headache:
>> Apply peppermint oil on your hairline.
>> Make ginger tea by taking ginger root and adding it to boiling water.
>> Take the rinds of a couple of lemons and squash it into a paste. Apply to the forehead for fast relief and follow-up with a cup of green tea with half a lemon squeezed in.
For a cluster (histamine) headache:
>> Use capsaicin cream (the active ingredient is cayenne pepper) and apply a small amount to the inside of your nostril.
For a migraine:
>> Take a supplement such as feverfew, an herb from the sunflower family.
>> Try acupuncture.
