Cure For Headaches Without Drugs
Headache cures are the most sought after remedies as it is one of the most common ailment people suffer from. Headaches afflict almost everyone at some time or the other.
That is, how to cure a headache without drugs. The first method is the simplest, it involves pinching your headache pressure point, which is the fleshy nerve cluster in the webbing between your thumb and forefinger. Pinch with your left hand. Continue until headache stops.
The second method is a shiatsu technique. Using a knuckle, or other hard object such as a massage stone or ball peen hammer, press with some force on the center of your hairline.
Put an ice pack on your head or on the back of your neck, and you will find that your headache slowly dissipates. But wait just a minute. If ice on your head makes your veins pump fluid more quickly, then what would happen if you put your feet into warm water while icing your head? You got it! Your headache will disappear quickly.
Another thing that you might do is drink a cup of coffee, or a cola. Caffeine constricts the blood vessels in your brain, so a big cup of coffee can often make that pain in your head disappear like magic. Caffeine is commonly used in pain relievers that are touted as "˜headache cures'.
