Water and Headaches

| 2

Since caffeine dehydrates, the headache prone may be better off avoiding it and instead drink more water, juices and decaf teas, coffees and sodas. Caffeine can cause a “rebound” effect which means it temporarily gets rid of the headache, which goes away and comes back worse than before. Try to eliminate caffeine from your diet even though you may experience withdrawals for a few days, it will be well worth the temporary suffering.

Some natural remedies to relieve headaches:

  1. Peppermint Oil – Place a few drops of this essential oil on your forehead, neck, and temples. In addition, breathing in the soothing oil can ease symptoms. (Keep away from your eyes!)

  2. Honey – Take two teaspoons of honey with each meal. Honey contains potassium and magnesium which will help relax arteries and allow more blood to flow to the brain.

  3. Walking – If you feel a headache coming on, take a short walk. This will relax you and your circulatory system so that more blood and oxygen can get to the brain.

  4. Mustard – Add 2 teaspoons of mustard powder in a hot footbath and soak your feet in the water for 10-20 minutes.

  5. Cayenne pepper – Put ½ to one teaspoon of cayenne pepper in a glass of water and drink slowly. This will dilute your blood vessels and improve circulation.

In essence, when dealing with headaches the pain can be relieved by drinking clean water, avoiding caffeine, and applying natural remedies. Just drinking a few glasses of water whenever you feel you might be coming on with a headache might save you from taking many pills over the course of your lifetime. Try several different remedies to see what works for you and kiss those headaches goodbye!
