There’s nothing worse than a headache that just won’t quit. The consistent pulsing and light sensitivity are enough to ruin anyone’s day, and standard anti-inflammatory pills often don’t do anything. But we’ve been treating headaches for generations, and over the years we’ve come up with numerous solutions using only the natural elements.
Here’s our helpful guide to mitigating and even curing a persistent headache using natural herbs.
Treat a Headache with Ginger
As a headache cure, ginger is easy to find, effective, and a delight to take. Ginger is one of the most thoroughly tested herbal cures, with research showing that it’s as effective as over the counter medication for treating headaches and even migraines. Ginger also helps reduce nausea, one of the major symptoms of a severe headache. Enjoying a nice, relaxing cup of ginger tea may be just what you need.
Magnesium Deficiency Linked to Headaches
Studies have shown a strong link between not getting enough magnesium and persistent headaches. Alarmingly, almost 75% of the U.S. population has a magnesium deficiency, making it an extremely likely culprit for your next headache. A daily supplement or increasing the leafy vegetables, nuts, and fruit in your diet can possibly eliminate your regular headaches.
We offer magnesium-rich sea buckthorn oil to make sure you’re reaching the recommended daily amount.
Mint for Stress Headaches
Mint and peppermint are used for a huge variety of illnesses and studies have shown that they can be extremely effective at treating stress-induced headaches. The herb is rich in antioxidants, a crucial factor in staving off a headache. To administer it, you can either boil leaves in tea or massage peppermint oil into the temples.
Chamomile Tea Headache Treatment
Chamomile tea is more than just a nice relaxing treat. Chamomile has been used for centuries as a natural sedative, and research has confirmed its effectiveness. It also serves as an effective anti-inflammatory treatment. This also combines for a well-rounded treatment for stress headaches.
At Salem Botanical, we offer a huge range of options for Chamomile, including tea, oil, and the herb itself.
Willow Bark as a Natural Pain Cure
Chewing willow bark to treat pain goes back centuries to ancient Egypt, making it one of the earliest medical treatments known to society. It was even used in the early development of mainstream modern anti-inflammatory drugs.
Willow bark is rich in Salicin, an active ingredient found in many pain medications. It serves as a great pure, natural remedy without the processing of pharmaceuticals. The most convenient way to take it is to mix it in with your tea.
