Head-On is a product that has been made fun of on TV, but it's a product that works! I get headaches a lot, and sometimes they go into migraines. You can use as much as you need, just rub the stick all over the forehead, and it does take away the pain, most of the time. It works because the stick has a cooling quality to it, and relief is usually to be found.

Chillies are appetizers for food and can burn fats, but did you know that chillies also can relieve headache? Yes, chillies are another way to get headache relief, especially if you're out of your regular headache medicines. You only need two whole chillies and a glass of water, just like when you are drinking medicine.

Natural cures for headaches. Post your ideas.
Oh, come on. Unless the smell of the lime is something that relaxes you and that relaxation helps you beat your headache, this "hint" can't be taken seriously.
Maybe if you then put the lime in a marguerita and drink it, that would help. It would help me, I know.
If you want a natural way to cure headaches, take a lime, cut it in half and rub it on your forehead. The throbbing will go away.

Rub your feet. Reflexology. Buy a book or get one from library....will show you zones that correspond
Put a ice cold rag on your head and get in a hot bath. The blood vessels in your head contract and the ones in your feet expand which lets the blood from your head go down into your feet. Too much blood in your brain/head = a headache. Take away that blood and voila!! Headache gone in 5-10 minutes. Try it!!
MigraStick, a roll-on peppermint and lavender oil on the temples, helps. If they're migraines in women, look into NATURAL progesterone cream. Health food stores have them.
Actually the ingredients in lime do help as does using white vinegar or lemon juice.
Drink two glasses of Gatorade for instant pain relief
The best way to stop a headache is to gargle water in your mouth with you head laid back on something and close your eyes, and do this with a full cup of water swallowing the water. This gets the head to stop throbbing and also works like a pain reliever getting it to fully go away. *make sure the water your drink is cold but not too cold or the headache will get even worse.
I learned today in my senior year that if you cut a lime in half and rub it on your forehead for a minute to 2 minutes it will cure the pain instantly! =]
I tried the lime juice idea, and I think it worked for the most part. The lime juice may burn a little.
I have had a headache most of the day. I tried the lime trick and amazingly enough it worked wonders.

I get up with headaches and have been for a x-ray and was told that I have Spondylosis and that's causing headaches. Have been to the Chiropractor and was told that I have muscle spasms, but nothing seem to help. Can muscle spasms cause headaches? Any advice.

Editor's Note: This works because quite often headaches are caused by dehydration. A full glass of water could help too and be much cheaper.
I have had migraine headaches for many years. One of the problems with migraines is that you are nauseated as well as dealing with the pain. I agree that you may be dehydrated. I keep caffeinated soda on hand for these occasions. Drink it when you take your pain meds. Some medications specifically for migraine headaches have caffeine as an ingredient. It seems to make Tylenol or other meds work better. Also, if you have a really long lasting headache take Tylenol one time and then ibuprofen the next. It works better.
To stop the pain fast take an aspirin with caffeine---coke, diet coke. The asprin thins the blood and stops the pain, the caffeine dialates the blood vessels in the brain delivering the aspirin more quickly. This is the main ingredients in Excedrin Migrain--much cheaper.
HAVE YOUR GALLBLADDER CHECKED! AFTER REMOVING MY GALLBLADDER MY MIGRAINES WENT AWAY! THEY ALWAYS CAME AROUND MY PERIOD AND I ALWAYS THOUGHT IT WAS PMS. NOW I MAY HAVE A VERY SLIGHT HEADACHE BUT NOT ONE MIGRAINE! MY GALLBLADDER WAS VERY BAD. I JUST DIDNT HAVE IT REMOVED FOR NO REASON. GOOD LUCK! DOCTOR SORT OF ROLLED HER EYES WHEN I TOLD HER MY HEADACHES ARE GONE NOW FOR OVER 2 YEARS. WORTH HAVING GALLBLADDER LOOKED AT.
I have had migraines for years... and for many of these headaches I have used a clothespin and clipped it to my ear lobe or the "web" between my thumb and first finger... works very well for me. I can change the clothespin from side to side or ear to web if it gets to tight.
How do you get ride of headache if nothing helps? I have had a headache for several months that won't go a way. Any natural things I can use? I'm already taking meds for seizures.
