Amazing Headache Reliefs
Believe it or not these activities have proven to relief headache…
Sexual orgasm –
According to the telegraph.co.uk
‘A team of neurologists found that sexual activity can lead to “partial or complete relief” of head pain in some migraines.
The study, from the University of Munster, Germany, suggests that instead of using a sore head as an excuse to refuse sex, making love can be more effective than taking painkillers.
Their research, reported in Cephalalgia, the journal of the International Headache Society, found that more than half of migraine sufferers who had sex during an episode experienced an improvement in symptoms.
One in five patients left without any pain at all, while others, in particular male sufferers “even used sexual activity as a therapeutic tool”, they added.
They suggested that sex triggered the release of endorphins, the body’s natural painkillers, through the central nervous system, which can in turn reduce, or even eliminate, a headache.
If the cause of your headache is dehydration, you can easily get relief from the pain by rehydrating your body.
Simply drink a glass of water at the first sign of a headache and continue taking small sips throughout the day.
Along with water, you can have sports drinks. The electrolytes present in sports drinks can treat headaches caused by tension and dehydration.
When suffering from a headache, stay away from drinks like alcohol that can dehydrate your body.
Massaging the head encourages the supply of oxygen to the brain which is one of the best ways of reducing anxiety and of lifting one’s mood. Oxygen helps you think clearly and creatively and a similar effect is experienced through exercise.
You may request an Indian head or Shiatsu massage. A neck and shoulder massage will also offer relief!
So next time try these quick fixes before you reach for a pain killer! 😉😉😉😉
