Whether caused by the common cold, dehydration, or eye strain, headaches are never fun. As one of the most common health problems, however, it is more than likely that everyone will experience a headache at one time or another. Thankfully, there are a number of remedies that have been known to ease the pain of a headache. Here are just a few:
- Apple cider vinegar – Apple cider vinegar is known for its many uses – one of which includes treating headaches. Combine ¼ cup of apple cider vinegar in a bowl and carefully add 3 cups of boiling water. Place a towel over your head to trap the steam and hold your face over the bowl for 5-10 minutes and breathe deeply, being careful to ensure your face is not close enough to be burned by the steam.
- Water – As dehydration is a common cause of headaches, drinking a glass of water may help to rehydrate your body and relieve your pain. In fact, many experts suggest drinking about 8 cups of water a day to keep yourself properly hydrated.
- Peppermint oil – Peppermint oil has a calming effect that may help to relieve headaches. Massage a few drops of oil onto your temples and find a quiet spot to relax. Experts believe that those who have sensitive skin should dilute the oil with a bit of water to avoid any potential irritations.
While the aforementioned remedies have been reported successful by many individuals, it is always best to consult with your physician before starting any new treatments on your own. Furthermore, individuals who are experiencing headaches that are severe or frequent should promptly schedule an appointment with their physician to determine the cause of their headaches and find more meaningful relief.
