When I feel a headache coming on I reach for the Advil and within a half hour or so, the pain is usually a lot better. But I know that the medicine is only relieving the pain- not actually getting rid of the headache. And I also know that it’s always better to go the natural way- without drugs- so I’ve dug up some ways to get rid of a headache using other methods. Of course a little Advil or Tylenol now and then is fine, but it’s worth trying some natural headache cures before reaching for the pills.

  1. Drink water: Being dehydrated can give you a headache, so drink plenty of water throughout the day. When you feel a headache starting, drink a glass of water, and then keep sipping. If it’s from dehydration, you should start to feel better quickly.
  2. Coffee: For some reason, coffee can sometimes get rid of a headache, but know that caffeine can be dehydrating, so drink some water, too.
  3. Acupressure: Press on the webbed area between your thumb and forefinger for about a minute. Switch, and do this on the other hand next.
  4. Peppermint oil: Massage your temples with a little bit of peppermint oil.
  5. Lavender oil: Just inhaling this essential oil can provide relief. Pour 2 drops on a tissue or cotton ball and breathe in.
  6. Cold or hot compress: Depending on the type of headache you have, either hot or cold will feel better. Apply to your forehead and the back of your neck.
  7. Stretch your neck: Tension in your neck can cause a headache, so try some stretches: Slowly bring your ear to your shoulder and repeat on the other side. Also stretch up and down by bringing your chin up to the ceiling and down to your chest.
  8. Go for a walk outside: This might be the perfect thing when a headache strikes at work; fresh air and a break from the screen will do wonders.
  9. Check your hairstyle: Sounds crazy, but a too-tight ponytail or bun, or a squeezing headband, can cause pain.
  10. Eat an apple: Eating an apple can restore the acidic and alkaline balance in your body, which will help you feel better.
