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.

What techniques do you use to stop your headaches?
