You don't have to take drugs for headache relief, assuming it's an everyday, garden-variety type. (See the bottom of this page for a list of dangerous signs that shout "call a doctor now!)
You may want to get the book Heal Your Headache: the 1-2-3 Program by David Buchholz, MD.
Personally, the concept of "migraine dietary triggers" changed my life. I suffered migraines for years, thinking they were sinus headaches. When I was diagnosed properly and educated about the various food triggers for migraines, I was able to almost completely control them without drugs. Pretty cool!
These dietary triggers can include caffeine, chocolate, MSG, processed meats, aged cheeses, nuts, alcohol (esp. red wine) and non-clear vinegars, certain fruits including citrus fruits and bananas, onions, fresh yeast-risen baked goods and aspartame.
This is definitely an avenue to pursue if you have migraines -- or any type of headaches at all, according to Dr. Buchholz. Keeping a food log for a month to see which triggers affect you can be extremely helpful.
However -- these pages are meant to provide home-care techniques for every-day pain. They are not meant to replace the advice and care of a medical doctor. Please call your medical doctor if you have any concerns about your health.
