Natural headache relief IS possible, 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.
This specialist believes that nearly all headaches are migraine phenomena, caused by dilation of the blood vessels in the head and neck, and that they can be significantly helped by a program that includes avoiding dietary triggers and "quick-fix" pain medications.
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.
