Natural relief for headache within 5 minutes

Headaches can really be unbearable when it hits you and it can ruin your mood and your day. Taking pills to relief headache every time is not advisable, but if you do not get rid of it, it will certainly turn your day into an unproductive one.

In my own opinion, headaches are usually caused by stress, anxiety and pressure at work or at home. Here are a few easy and natural tips on how to counter headaches.

1. Bite or chew something

You can bite some "really" hard or crunchy snacks, but make sure it is healthy in content and in quantity.

Or you can bite a pencil. To put it more appropriately, you can clench a pencil in the mouth, like this...

It seems that clenching a pencil or chewing something crunchy helps to relief muscles that connects your jaw to your temple, hence, it relaxes you. (Do you ever wonder why most men tend to prefer popping in nuts or Indian fried snacks like muruku when they are stressed?)

This is a proven method that is recommended in quite a number of established health sites, like here or here. Note that this method is only effective for tension headaches and not for headaches caused by other reasons.

2. Try simple acupressure

Acupressure is an ancient technique based on the application of pressure to certain crucial points in our body to relief or eliminate pain.

Find the point on the upper part of your hand, precisely the point where your thumb and your index finger is joint. Press and start a circulation motion for a minute, like this...

Apply a hot water bag to the back of your neck.

Alternatively, you can take a HOT shower, directing the water onto the back of your neck. The invigorating experience of having the powerful rain of hot water on your neck is like having a water massage. It relaxes tense muscles, therefore, alleviating the throbbing pain.

4. A Cup of Hot Lemon Drink or Ginger Tea

Lemon is refreshing and relaxing. It also helps maintain the acid-alkaline balance in your body and helps to flush out toxins too, whereas ginger helps to expel wind/air within the body.
