  • drink LOTS and LOTS of water before doing anything else (that's what i do)....most of the time headaches are due to dehydration

  • Water is usually the first thing I think of since many headaches are a result of dehydration. Just heard on Dr Oz this week about some really neat cures....

    Tension Headaches= press your fingers to the edge of your eyebrows (center near the nose) for a few seconds pushing up. Apparently this is a pressure point for this type. Anti inflamatory like Ibuprophen or Naproxen. Liquid Gel-caps get to the system fastest.

    Migraines = Magnesium, Feverfew, Triptane, or caffiene (It helps reduce the swelling blood vessels).

    Cluster = (like a drill behind the eye) Hot peppers or Capsacin. Drink a shot of V8 with a 1/2 tsp of black pepper and 1/4 tsp of Cayenne.

  • Get a good Chiropractic adjustment and/or cranial-headache goes away immediately and stays gone!
