A lot of natural remedies are gaining ground today for the treatment of headache and migraine in place of traditional prescription drugs. In this article, I would try to give you an acquaintance with some of the popular alternative medicines for such treatment and would also guide you as to which foods you should avoid curing the headache.

Before we discuss the remedies, it would be helpful to first point out the underlying causes of headaches. Headache can be caused by a number of reasons. Some usual causes include;

  • Stress
  • Overeating
  • Unsuitable posture
  • Problems with eyesight
  • Problems with teeth

If you do not learn to control stress, you would eventually fall prey to headaches or even migraines. A fatal mistake committed by many people is to rely on alcohol when they are stressed. This way, you further aggravate the problem.

Do not consume alcohol in the first place. But if you have done so and are caught in a hangover, try to consume as much water as possible to cut dehydration. Vitamin C rich foods would also help.

Besides reducing stress and trying to lead a peaceful life, the following treatments can also prove helpful in curing headache or migraine;

Migraine

Headaches alone can be really frustrated, but they take the form of migraines, they become really unbearable and extremely painful. I am sure that you do not want to endure that stabbing pain now and then. I didn’t want that too. After being disappointed by the standard prescription medicine, I had no way other than to look for some alternative medicine.

Migraine can be caused due to several reasons, like exposure to bright light, loud sounds, or unsuitable foods. However, the leading cause of migraines in most people remains to be stress and anxiety, as was the case with me too. I had decided to defeat the pain and bring a positive change in my life. Some of the alternative methods I used after research were really helpful and I would like to share them with others suffering from this disorder. You may benefit from these alternative ways to cure migraines. As they helped me, they could also prove helpful for many others. The methods which used were;

Though I still have occasional spells of headaches it has been more than nine months since I suffered from the stabbing pain of migraine. so I am leading a much peaceful and healthier life now and hope the same for you.
