1.Apply ice pack to neck and upper back for tension headaches caused by stress, worry, depression, anger or food allergies.
2.Make a cold herbal compress by wetting a cloth in ice-cold water or placing a damp cloth in the freezer for ten minutes. Add two drops of peppermint oil to the cloth and apply it to the painful area for 15 minutes.

4.To relieve headache pressure and pain caused by sinus congestion have someone gently massage your shoulders and the back of your neck. This treatment often unblocks congestion in the sinuses.
5.Consume fiber daily to remove toxins from your system.
6.Soaking your feet in a footbath will divert the blood supply from your head to your feet. The water should be at a temperature of 95°F to begin with. Gradually add hot water to the foot basin until the temperature reaches 115°F. Soak feet for several minutes then pour in cold water until the water becomes lukewarm. Dry feet and put on wool or thick socks. Lie down for 15 to 20 minutes.
Most headaches are tension headaches and a quick 5-10 minute pressure point excercise can help get rid of the pain. The website I use for pressure point information is below:
Some times headaches are also caused by dehydration, so drinking a lot of water and taking it easy can help with the pain.
Feverfew, an herb that resembles the daisy, has been shown to be helpful for preventing headaches. Eight out of ten studies showed that feverfew was at least somewhat effective at preventing headaches. Feverfew is meant to be taken daily to prevent headaches rather than taken only when headaches arise. Another herb, butterbur, also is believed to reduce the frequency of headaches. Butterbur contains liver toxins known as pyrrolizidine alkaloids (PAs), but there are formulas out there without PAs.
Magnesium, riboflavin, and Coenzyme Q10 are nutritional supplements that people who suffer from headaches can take to lessen the frequency of their headaches.
Headaches can be caused by dehydration. Many Americans do not drink enough water. People who suffer from headaches on a regular basis should look at their water intake because not drinking enough water could be the culprit.
Headaches are caused by anything from stress to allergies to eye-strain so it is important to make sure that you are treating the source of the problem. The first link suggests solutions to headaches caused by a variety of factors. One of the main causes for headaches is dehydration so the first thing you should try is drinking lots of water.
If your headache persists, drinking lemon infused tea is helpful to provide you with caffeine and a chance to relax. Pounding the lemon rind into a paste and applying it to your forehead is another solution. You could also apply peppermint oil to your temples. Massage and relaxation are good ways to ease the pain in your head.
Honey is known to be a natural cure for headaches- especially in conjunction with a cup of tea.
I can’t believe no one has mentioned sex!!!
Sex…or, more inclusively, aerobic activity of any kind. It improves circulation and gets oxygen to your brain and extremities.
