Try these 15 fast headache remedies instead of staying up all night searching for natural remedies. These remedies may not cure you completely, but any form of relief is a godsend when it comes to migraines and headaches.

1. DRINK WATER

As simple as it may sound, dehydration is one of the most common causes of headaches.

2. GIVE YOURSELF A SCALP MASSAGE

It has been shown that massaging the greater occipital nerve at the base of your skull can relieve headache pain.

3. PRESS THE WEBBED AREA BETWEEN YOUR THUMB AND POINTER FINGER

Massage the spot lightly for about one minute before switching hands.

4. STRETCH

It is common for muscle tension to cause headaches. Some tension in the neck can be relieved by simple neck stretches.

5. EAT WATERMELON

Your headache may be relieved by eating water-rich foods if you are dehydrated.

6. MASSAGE PEPPERMINT OIL ONTO YOUR TEMPLES, THE BACK OF YOUR JAW AND YOUR FOREHEAD

There is evidence that peppermint oil promotes blood flow, which might help relieve your headache.

7. BREATHE DEEPLY

Pain causes your body to become stressed. It will help you relax and ease some of the tension if you take deep breaths.

8. DRINK A CUP OF COFFEE

Often, headaches are caused by blood vessels expanding. Caffeine constricts these blood vessels, restoring them to their normal size.

9. DRINK APPLE CIDER VINEGAR

You can make it more palatable by adding a little honey or lemon juice to two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar. Acid-alkaline balance is restored by apples and ACV, which can relieve headache pain.

10. HOLD A PENCIL BETWEEN YOUR TEETH

Holding the pencil between your teeth activates your “smile” muscles, relaxing your jaw. When we’re stressed, we may clench our teeth, causing tension headaches by straining the muscles that connect the jaw to the temples.

11. DRINK GINGER TEA

Some pain may be relieved by ginger’s anti-inflammatory properties.

12. APPLY ICE TO YOUR TEMPLES

A thin bone at the temple houses the artery supplying blood to the brain lining. The lining of the brain gets inflamed during migraines, so lowering the temperature of the blood passing through that area may relieve the pain.

13. TAKE A HOT SHOWER

Allow the water to fall on the back of your neck. The heat can relieve headache pain by relaxing tense muscles.

14. EAT SOMETHING SPICY

Make your food spicy by adding cayenne pepper. There is an ingredient in cayenne called capsaicin that controls the perception of pain.

15. MEDITATE

You can distract yourself from a headache by quieting your mind and focusing on something else instead of the pain. Breathe in, breathe out…
