"The food you eat can be either the safest and most powerful
form of medicine, or the slowest form of poison. Of course, food as
medicine usually affects the body much more slowly than modern drugs.
But in the end it can be safer and more thorough, it works by removing
the cause of the illness whereas most drugs merely relieve the outer
symptoms". ~ Ann Wigmore
1. A headache is your body's cry for help. If severe, we must
ensure it's not something more serious. Prevent recurring headaches by
treating triggers, such a stress, environmental toxins or inadequate
sleep. With treatment, less is better, since the drugs can cause side
effects. Try acupressure on the brow between your eyes or just above
Dr. Rozen & Dr. Oz
2. GPs are increasingly willing to refer headache
patients to a qualified acupunturist. Treatment forcuses on the root
cause - stress, food, sleep, hormones, - plus severity and type of
pain, and a tongue and pulse diagnosis. For short-term relief, gently
squeeze the webbing between your thumb and forefinger for about a
minute, or press the top of your foot betwen the big toe and second toe.

3. We look at food first - It's easiest to manipulate. Food triggers
are different for everyone; for some, red wine or cheese may be to
blame. Find out your danger foods; then avoid them. Caffeine withdrawal
is a common culprit, so if you're trying to cut back, do so gradually..
Instead of coffee, drink plenty of water. The pain will eventually go
Annemarie Colbin - author 'Food and Healing'
4. Mix two drops of pepprmint oil (Mentha Piperiata) in a teaspoon
of olive oil. Rub your forehead and temples for instant cooling to ease
pain.. Or try putting two drops of lavender (Lavandula angustifolia)
mandarin (citrus reticulata) or clary sage (Salvia sclarea) essential
oils on a cotton ball. Inhale for two or three minutes,
