Updated on November 13, 2015

There are different types of headaches that affect millions of people out there, regardless of the age. Of course, there are individuals who tried different popular medicines to help alleviate the pain that affects their head badly. Although there are medicinal drugs that provide quick temporary relieve, some of them are ineffective, unsafe and expensive.

I want you to understand that even though the offered medicinal drugs are helpful, the bad thing is that if you get used to taking medicine whenever you have headache, your body will be searching for these items consistently. If this happens, you cannot defeat your head ache, unless you drink medicinal drugs on a regular basis. This kind of addiction is certainly not good for your overall health.

Nowadays, there are many convincing natural home remedies for headache and you need to identify them better. To give you an idea, here are some of the most effective options you have to consider. Remember that these alternatives need proper execution to get the best results you need in regaining your composure and strength.

Performing acupressure

This kind of treatment is very effective in reducing headache by applying pressure using the index finger above your eyebrow near the corner of your eyes. In most cases, people who are experiencing sinusitis are using this approach to relieve the pain. They do acupressure to relax and open their sinuses, which had been proven very effective for sinusitis treatment.

Pressing the index finger and thumb

By pressing the area between your index finger and thumb, this creates good pressure to eliminate your headache. To make the process more effective, you need to press the area for 2-4 minutes while taking any pain. After completing the process for at least 3-4 times, you will notice that the painful sensation vanishes gradually. However, this kind of natural treatment is not advisable for pregnant women because it can easily trigger premature delivery and disturbing muscle contraction.

Scalp and neck massage

When you massage your scalp and neck, this is also an effective natural cure to relieve the stress affecting your muscles. Because of this, it allows you to feel relax and slowly eliminating the tension caused by your headache. This kind of technique is very popular to those who work for long hours and need the exact relaxation method after a tough day. In some cases, it is also possible to alleviate the pain quickly by pulling your hair gently from the back of your neck up to your scalp. You need to repeat the process for at least 3-5 times for 1-2 minutes.

Eating ripe apple in the morning

When you are experiencing intense headache, eating ripe apple in the morning is another effective way to 0alleviate the pain. To do the process, it is best to eat when your stomach is empty and dip the sliced apples with iodized salt. This is a safe and effective home remedy that can eliminate minor to chronic head ache. Usually, you need to complete the process for at least 7 days every morning.

Create lemon paste with eucalyptus oil

For those who are not familiar with this kind of mixture, the combination of lemon extra and eucalyptus oil to create a paste is an effective and beneficial alternative to defeat various infections that can trigger headache. To reduce the pain gradually, you need to apply the mixed paste on your forehead and nape. I want you to learn that for the past several years, this is actually one of the most popular home remedies across the globe.

When we talk about the best home treatments to relieve headache, there are countless of options out there. However, it is very important to determine the potential pros and cons of these remedies before using them. The good thing is that these aforementioned natural treatments are proven effective and recognized by health experts too.
