    How can you get rid of a headache without aspirin or any medicine?

    you could try a neck and head massage or a warm shower, concentrating the flow of the water  on the sore area. this could work if it's a tension headache.

    for a migraine, sometimes a cup of coffee and a brief nap helps.

    I have used peppermint oil and rubbed it right on my temples, it seemed to open up everything and stop the headache.

    I rub some liniment on my temples and get a good night sleep!

    I know this may sound rather different but this method seems to work. There is a pressure point in the center of your forehead. Lightly massage this area with two fingers and you will notice a difference in the pain almost immediately. Massaging your temples can also help but it seems that the forehead area is more effective. Continue massaging until the headache is gone usually within a few minutes. I can't explain how this method works but I was shown it a while ago and have used it a few times and, for me, it seems to work quickly.

    * water therapy is equally effective in headaches....2-3 glasses of luke warm water taken simultaneously works mirculously in getting rid of headaches.

    *  cut a Lemon into two halves .. sprinkle  a little salt & pepper on it ...put it on hot plate for 1-2 minutes....then sueze the lemon & suck the juice of it...... Headhaches due to gas goes off in no time!

    *  if the headache is one sided ie. either in left or the right side of head....Tie the upper arm of opposite side of headache with a band .....it works wonderfully in throwing away headache!...(and dont forget to remove the band ones you are relieved)

    All these tips are from my grandmas diary ... very well tested & proved...hope it helps you too!

    Acupuncture with TCM. Or you can try pressing in between your thumb and first finger. It is the pressure point to relieve your headache.

    The next place will be your ear, just at the corner of the middle section. Press it hard enough will relieve your headache.

    Sometimes headaches are caused by dehydration. So try drinking a lot of water and laying down in a quiet and dark room.

    Sleep. There's very little else that will cure a headache depending on the cause.

    I have a variety of solutions, depending on the cause. Sinus headaches, I breathe steam. Towel over the head and the steam to keep it close to you.
    I get headaches when I don't get enough sleep. Take a nap.
    Tension headache, pressure points at the base of the skull, Massage the neck, put pressure in the two indents at the base of the skull and hold. You will get light-headed and that is how you know you got the right spots. Let go the pressure when the headache starts to fade, it will continue to fade.
    Keep hydrated and get enough sleep because these will cause headaches
