Headaches and how to heal them without synthetic drugs and pharmaceuticals….
1- Rest 🙂 really, not trying to be facetious! And drink water – many times the headache is a sign of dehydration, and simply drinking a room temperature glass of water will quickly hydrate you and relieve pain.
2-If you are prone to sinus headaches (generally viral) then using a neti pot with some sea salt or himalayan salt can be extremely beneficial. Make sure the neti pot and all the ingredients you put in it are clean and use distilled or filtered water
3-Another useful method to eradicate headaches is to gently use your thumb to massage in a circular motion right beneath the skull area for about 3-5 seconds in each spot as you move your thumb around – this will relax the muscles in case your headache is a tension headache
4-Lying with your body completely flat on your back is very helpful, then place a gentle weight on your eyes – like an eye pillow (some options) Gaiam Eye Pillow Purple Batik Baja Zen Namaste Yoga Eye Soother Pillow Barefoot Yoga Solid Silk Yoga Eye Pillow – Dazzling Blue Lime and imagine that your eyes are falling deeply into the back of your head
5- Try to maintain a regular routine and eat food that resonates with your constitution, or dosha . While it may seem irrelevant or confusing, but our body tells us what it needs, and often times we ignore it, or override it, and that leads to imbalances in our system that can ultimately lead to more disease and sickness.
