3 All-Natural Headache Cures That Work Almost Instantly #WellnessWednesday

Headaches are the worst. And if you suffer often, loading yourself up on medication probably doesn’t feel so good every single time. Trust me, I know from firsthand experience. That’s why I’m sharing three of my go-to ways to cure a headache. Not only are they all natural, but they work quickly!

One of the best ways to cure a headache is to avoid it in the first place. After many grueling migraines, I realized a common theme: most of the time I felt a headache coming on, it’s because I waited too long to eat in the morning or I am super dehydrated. Yikes. It almost goes without saying, but it’s easy to get caught up in the bustle of every day life and forget to eat breakfast, accidentally skip lunch or not be conscious of drinking enough water throughout the day. Eating and drinking lots of water is an easy pre-emptive headache! Staying hydrated and regularly eating meals (especially breakfast) can help to avoid a headache or if you feel one slightly coming on eating a quick meal or drinking a ton of water might help reverse it or just stop it from getting any worse.

If you have a full blown headache, I feel your pain. A simple way to reverse this headache is to massage your temples with an agent that is known to help headaches. One of the best things you can use is peppermint oil. Peppermint is known to promote blood flow, and is actually a very potent stress relieving scent. If your headache is being caused by stress, peppermint oil is the way to go.

If you don’t have peppermint oil, ice can be a quick replacement. Using ice cubes to massage your temples or placing a cold cloth on your head helps distract the horrible feeling in your head, but also cools down the lining of your brain that gets inflamed while you have a migraine or headache.

Remember these things next time you have a migraine, so you don’t suffer in silence.
