Home Remedies for headache

All of us have suffered from headaches at some time or the other. No one needs to be told about the agony it can cause. They just hit you at any time with a nagging, throbbing pain in the head and spoil your day. There could be many causes for headaches. Well… let’s not go deep into that. Here are a few home remedies which you could try out when a headache hits you.
1) A simple home remedy is to cut a betel leaf into 2 halves lengthwise, gently warm the halves over fire and apply over each temple. Its aromatic and tonic properties help soothe the headache.
2) Paste the skin of a large cardamom (elaichi) and apply it to the forehead. You can also add a clove (laung) and the stalk of a betel leaf to this application.
3) Clove (laung) oil is celebrated remedy for both headaches and toothaches. Even pasted cloves can be applied to the head as a counter irritant to relieve headaches.
4) Rub the cinnamon (dalchini) oil lightly onto the temples to ward off headaches.
5) Tender coconut water relieves headache caused by overexposure to the sun.
6) Drink a cold infusion of the henna flowers twice a day to relieve headaches.
7) Applying a paste of mustard (called ‘rayi’ in Hindi and ‘sasive’ in Kannada) over the temples mixed in oil for a heavy head serves as a counter irritant and relieves heaviness and congestion in the head.
8) As a topical application in headache, the paste of nutmeg (jaiphal) provides quick relief.
9) Apply a thin layer of sandalwood paste and camphor over the temples to relieve throbbing pain.
10) A simple home remedy is to cut a betel leaf into 2 halves lengthwise, gently warm the halves over fire and apply over each temple. Its aromatic and tonic properties help soothe the headache.
11) An easily available Indian sweet JALEBI, is of great help in headache. Immerse 2 to 3 Jalebis in a glass of warm milk for a few minutes, and then drink this mixture once or twice a day.
Other measures
DIET: Avoid cold items like curd, ice-creams, cold-water and cold-drinks. Do not use cold water for baths. Also don’t expose yourself to cold climatic conditions as this may aggravate your headache.

    Head massages help to some extent; it can be self-applied too. Strong pressure at the source of pain seems to have a reducing effect. If you have a partner, have them press on either side of your head with their palms, like they’re trying to crush a melon. If the pain’s located in the temples, rub them. If it’s just sort of all over the head, palm the top of your head and massage and squeeze the scalp.

    When you get a headache, apply pressure to the pressure point where the bones of your thumb and index finger connect. Its easy to find.. Press hard for as along as you can, and as you do, you will notice the headache fade away.. This almost always works for me and whoever else i tell.

    Have someone pull your hair by starting slowly at the back of the neck and grabbing as much hair in two fistfuls close to the scalp.
    Pull for 3 seconds and release, slowly working your way up to the forehead, releasing and grabbing the next batch of hair with both hands and so on.
    Then work backwards along the sides of the head to the rear.
    This will alleviate pain for about 10 minutes.

    Scalp Massage: To soothe that aching head, try massaging your scalp with your fingertips as if you were washing your hair. You may also try placing a natural-bristle hairbrush at your temple, just above the eyebrow, and slowly move it toward the back of your head in slow circles. This massage helps ease tension and bring relief.

    Squeeze your ears.
    There are pressure points all along your ears just like your feet. It's called auricular therapy.
    I had a migraine once, went in for treatment with the little pulse probe for 20 min and went home and painted my house.
    Since you obviously don't have the pulse thing, you just use your forefinger and thumb to squeeze al along your ear. When you find a tender spot, stop and gently rub to a count of 15.
    You could also have someone massage your neck, shoulders and back.

  46. most headaches are primarily caused by muscle tension around the neck and shoulders. After a while of being tense, nerves become irritated and cause a variety of symptoms. I suggest getting this checked out by a doctor... always remeber though, whichever doctor you go to, they will just tell you what they know or what they've been taught in med school. So if you go to a physician, they'll probably prescribe drugs. If you go to a chiro, they'll talk about nerve pinching. If you go to a neurologist, they'll probably suggest surgery. So trust your body, it'll tell you how to heal yourself

    Feel the top ridge of your eye socket under the eyebrow. You will discover a small groove in your skull about the center of the top of the eye socket. In this groove is a nerve which is very sensitive to pressure. If you compress this nerve, it will be very painful. However, the pain will stimulate the pituitary to release endorphins immediately. The endorphins are the body's own natural painkillers and are more powerful than morphine.
    bullet To stimulate the nerve, push hard against it for about 10 seconds.
    bullet Lean your head over and hit the back of it with medium pressure.
    bullet Repeat about 20 times and then rest to see if enough endorphin was released to stop the headache.

    A migraine is a traumatic experience, which the sufferer usually hates to recall. It is an intense, throbbing pain affecting one or both sides of the head. A migraine episode may last for a few hours or may extend for days; some are so severe that it incapacitates the sufferers, leaving them bed-ridden.Visiting a neurologist is not a bad idea for people who suffer from headache. This would help to rule out other conditions, such as stroke or retinal artery thrombosis that produce similar symptoms.

Your neck muscles go to the top of your head and when they are tight at the top they pull on other muscles that go around your head. When they get tight and go into pain you have your headache. to get rid of the headache you have to free up your neck muscles and here's how to do that:
    Neck
    Put your hands alongside your head so your thumbs are on the front of the muscle under your ear and your fingers are on the back of the muscle behind your neck.

    chew a bit of bee honey comb for at least 15 minutes 5 times daily; Relief is usually found on the first day. This treatment should be followed for at least 10 days to avoid a relapse.

    Applying paste made up of dried Amla powder with Kumkum, Neelkamal and rose-water cures headache. Applying paste of Juice of 2 to 3 Amla or its pulp mixed with little rose water and 3 to 4 pieces of kesar (saffron) in it-on the affected part for 15 mts. relieves the pain of migraine.

    Basil makes a good medicine for headache. A decoction of the leaves can be given for this disorder. Pounded leaves mixed with sandalwood paste can also be applied on the forehead for getting relief from heat, headache, and for providing coolness in general.

    rub your forehead and take deep breaths
    or
    Take a hot shower and let the hot water run on your forehead and the back of your head. This will help relieve the constricted blood vessels in your head that may be causing your headache.

    Try meditation or gentle deep breaths at night before sleep and first thing upon waking.Helps to de-stress,moderate blood flow,reduce anxiety.Drink large glass of warm water first thing in the morning and a few during the day.Remember to take same gentle deep breaths during the day to prevent anxiety build up.
