If you’re anything like me, you get headaches once in a while. Some of you may get them more. When that happens, sometimes from being hungry or stressed, I would go to my trusted Advil and pop it to take the pain away. In recent years, I’ve begun to realize that sometimes my headache is from dehydration, so I now my first go to is WATER.
Headaches occur for various reasons. US News recently published an article by Yuri Elkaim, a nutritionist and fitness expert, on How to Stop a Headache. There are various methods listed on stopping a headache. You should check it out here.
Here are two more of my favorites from the list, in addition to drinking water:
- Hot and Cold Contrast – put cold compress on your head and soak your feet in warm water
- Relax – meditation, deep breathing or yoga
So before you go to pop a pill, try a more natural method. You never know, it just might work. That pill can always be popped another day.
