About 90 percent of the world population-that’s if it’s not everybody-experience headache and when this occurs, a state of discomfort is ignited.
Headaches could be caused by a hint of other illnesses, like malaria or typhoid fever, or most times as an everyday after effect of stress, anxiety and worries.
Migraines, on the other hand, tend to be both intense and recurring.
The most common ways to reduce or stop an headache is to use medications, mostly analgesics, but then here are a few number of effective natural ways to put an end to recurring headaches.
According to Elizabeth Loder, President of the American Headache Society; “Many people are very busy and are reluctant to take the time, but if you consider the tradeoff of spending 10 minutes to close the blinds, lie down, and relax when you feel a headache forming, that might be better use of your time than being incapacitated later on after it gets worse”.
In essence, getting enough sleep reduces the possibility of having a headache.
Eat Litttle Meals Consistently
Studies have shown that rather than eating three large square of meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner, it is advisable to eat in little bits consistently in order to keep regulating the level of blood sugar.
Use Ice Blocks
According to Dr. Loder, it is advisable to use ice blocks on one’s head when there is a feel of headache. “If your brain is paying attention to the cold stimulus, it’s not paying attention to the pain,” she said.
Hot shower/Warm Food
If your headache is relative to cold, like a blocked nasal passage, you can ease it up by having a warm shower or a hot cup of coffee.
According to Dr. Loder, “Many people find that gentle pressure on the temples can, at least temporarily, relieve pain”.
Reduce the intake of alcohol
Headache has been predominantly related with alcohol, especially the after morning effect of hangover. “Anyone will get a headache if they drink a whole bottle of wine, but there are lots of people who will get a headache just from one glass. For those people, it’s all about learning to recognize their triggers and knowing when to stop,” said Dr. Greene.
Headache could sometimes be as a result of lack of fluid. It is advisable you get your body system hydrated often, not only after meals or after strenuous physical exercises.
Other steps include taking a break off your computer, staying away from a scorching sun, exercising regularly and spitting out your gum after a brief chew; elongated chewing could result in headache.
