4 Ways to Get Rid of Your Headache Without Medication

Do you often wake up with a slight headache? Do these seem to come on when you feel stressed during the workday?

Regardless of when you’re dealing with the pain from a headache, there are steps you can take to get back to 100 percent. Best yet, you don’t always have to turn to medication.

Here are four ways to get rid of your headache without medication:

·      Use a cold pack or cool washcloth: Compress either of these on your head for 10 minutes. From there, take a break and see what happens. You may be surprised at the result.

·      Try a heating pad: If your headache is a result of tension and stress, a heating pad often works better than a cold pack. Put this on your neck for 5 to 10 minutes and see what happens.

·      Rest in a dark room: Forget about sitting in front of your computer screen or going outside into the bright sunlight. Dim the lights or turn them off completely. From there, try to relax your headache away.

·      Don’t eat: This doesn’t mean you should shut out food all day long, but try to give yourself a break when treating your headache. Chewing can hurt your jaw and head, causing more harm than good.

The next time you get a headache, don’t immediately search for some type of medication that can help. Instead, experiment with one or more of these treatment options.
