How to get rid of a headache without taking an analgesic

headachetipWho says spending time on social networking sites like Twitter is a waste of time? Here’s a tip that makes perfect sense in theory (mind you, I have not tried it).

I don’t often have headaches, but if I do, it would be nice not to resort to taking Aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid), Tylenol (Acetaminophen) or Advil (Ibuprofen) each time as treatment. I’ve tried the pressure point recommendations of pinching the webbing between the thumb and forefinger“Valley of Harmony (LI4)” – technic with limited success, but am open minded to other ideas.

The one mentioned at the left sounds logical when I think about how heat and cold affect blood flow in the body. I’m willing to place some “frozen peas” on the base of my neck and soak my extremities in “hot/warm” water the next time I have a headache.

Does this work for you?
