Natural remedies to get rid of headaches

A headache is a common symptom that a lot of people deal with in their daily life. We can distinguish several types of headaches, from moderate to severe. Although numerous medications are available in the market to relieve headache symptoms, we can also identify some natural treatments to get rid of headaches:

🔸Drink water

Different studies have shown that in most cases, headache symptoms are due to dehydration. Drinking water can help relieve a headache within 30 minutes to three hours. Being dehydrated can also reduce concentration and cause irritability. Drink enough water throughout the day in order to stay hydrated and to feel good!

🔸Magnesium intake

Magnesium is an important mineral that helps control sugar blood and nerve transmission. Studies have demonstrated that 600mg of oral magnesium per day could reduce the frequency and the pain of headaches.

🔸Sleep well

Sleep deprivation can have negative effects on your health and may also cause headaches. On the other hand, sleeping for too much time could also cause headaches. The right amount of rest should be between seven to nine hours of sleep by night.

🔸Use oil essentials

Essentials oils are composed of aromatic compounds from different plants which bring therapeutic benefits. The Peppermint and lavender essential oils can also release a headache, by applying a few drops to the upper lip or simply by inhaling.

🔸Drink Caffeinated Tea or Coffee

You can get rid of headaches by drinking tea or coffee (containing caffeine). But on the contrary, if you used to drink coffee every single day and you stop it suddenly, it may affect you by causing a headache.

🔸Drink Ginger Tea

A study has shown that 250 mg of ginger powder was as effective as the traditional headache medication in order to relieve the headache pain. Moreover, drinking ginger tea can help reduce nausea and vomiting.
