    Angry Natural Headache Remedies

    Primal Fuel
    HELP!!! I've had a decently sized headached since LAST NIGHT since I went to bed and slept horribly!!! I don't want to take any medicine, I've taken so much of this stuff in the past that i'm near immune. But anyone know of, or know of a site that I can use to get some relief naturally?

    Oh and, if possibly there are suggestions to being deficient in some nutrients that'd help prevent headaches again! I was hurting enough that it forced me to skip my workout! I was bummed!!! Anyways thanks for any info!!!

    - drink plenty of water
    - have you recently been drinking a lot of coffee or other caffeine & then didn't drink any yesterday? if so, you can either push through the pain to get over the addiction, or wean yourself off. if i drink coffee three days in a row (just one cup a day) & then skip a day, i usually get a headache.
    - did you have something with gluten? turns out that was the cause of my years of migraines. now, if i have even a small amount (say, a cookie...), i'll get a migraine.
    - you can try icing it down by putting an ice pack on your forehead or wherever the pain is. my usually was worst right about my right eyebrow. if, however, this is possibly a sinus headache, i've heard that heat is better.
    - try to sleep it off. make the room as dark as possible, & breathe deep, in & out, for a few minutes, to fully oxygenate your brain.
    - sniffing peppermint and/or geranium oil often helps.

    i used to get migraines that lasted up to three days. if it gets much worse, or lasts longer than that, i'd advise you to go to the hospital.

    Magnesium'll usually do the trick for me. That and a dark, cold room where I can sleep it off burrowed under a mound of blankets with an icepack on my head.

    Water and if that doesn't work I grab a Goody's! My headaches are usually corelated with hydration.

    Might just say f-it and go to the gym and force some endorphins into my system...might hurt a bit while I'm doing it but should help... :-)

    Here's one I heard today, but haven't tried personally. It's an Indian remedy, grate some ginger, then squeeze some of the juice out, place in nostrils and snort it up!
