Headache Remedy

Cut up a potato and rap it over your forehead with a bandana or a towel (You only need about 3 or 4 pieces of potato) That should work. It helped me when I had a headache.

heat works---

first i put an electric kettle on ,cover my head with a big towel and inhale the steam from the spout for about 15 minutes--sometimes i put in a few drops of eucalyptus oil especially if i have a cold and it gives me great relief!
Then i fill a hot water bag and place it to my forehead where its hurting and i lie in bed and sleep for atleast 30 mins.
Another thing i do is to soak my legs up to just below my knees in hot water as hot as i can bear for 30 mins at bedtime and put a wet cloth on the top of my head at the same time --and drink a glass of cold water before doing this so I dont get over heated.

Spicy Soup cures Migranes

Spicy soups like Seafood Gumbos will cure a migrane. I have tried to pass this on to my friends, but they do not believe me. But it works.

It's some ingredient in the Hot Chili peppers that does the trick, called capsaicin, or something like that.

Also that Chinese Hot and Sour soup works too. So next time you get a migraine, go to the nearest Chinese restaurant and get some soup.

Headache relief

In a 1994 study on headaches, the essential oils of peppermint, eucalyptus, or lavender can be used for a headache.

If you can find any of these oils, just carry one in your purse or pocket, and when a headache strikes, dab a few drops on your temples. My favorite is lavender.

If you have a migraine you need to raise the temperature of your hands by about 15 degrees and it will stop it. For instance, place your hands in hot water in a sink, (but not too hot)if you add a couple drops of the oils it will help even better.
