Tigard balm

For my migraine headaches I rub Tigard balm (found in your muscle rub section of your pharmacy) around the end of my nose. Then I lay my head back, relax, and breath it in. It's a miracle worker for me. No drugs....

Avoid certain food

If prone to severe migraine avoid fresh onions, milk after dinner, smoking, control the intake of chocolates, cheese, peanuts, artificially flavored drinks, red wine, beer, whiskey and food that contains yeast.
Should be careful not to go out in the hot sun, have a regular pattern for your sleep and never over eat or be too late to have your food. I have been suffering from Migraine for the past 20 years, ended up with Hypnic headaches, undergone all sorts of treatments. This is what my experience has taught me. Practice Yoga and Natya Vyayama to boost you up.

Headache cure

One remedy for sinus headaches that works very well for me is sniffing black pepper. It causes sneezing, which causes plugged sinuses to loosen up considerably. It works nearly every time.

Eating foods high in potassium like celery will reduce painful headache symptoms. Use a teaspoon of salt substitute(potassium chloride)mix it in a drink. You head will clear and the pain will go away. You may also want to try not eating high fructose corn syrup.

Heat theraphy

Heat wheat flour or sea salt in a pan, transfer it to a clean cotton kerchief/towel, fold it like small ball and rub gently on the back/top of your head, forehead, temples, neck(see that it is not too hot, it should be in a tolerant level). This heat theraphy absorbs water(sinus problems), relaxes your muscles and increases blood flow to the brain.

Even if you have back pain, knee pain you will get headache, just apply heat theraphy in the same way on your knees, joints or back, your headache will disappear.

I have tried it myself and also for my family members, it worked out.

Aspirin and pair remedy

If you have a migraine or just a plain headache, take 1 aspirin then get a fresh green pair cut in half and eat it save the other half for later if you would like. But this really works in matter of minutes.
