Natural Headache Help
Posted Sept 23, 2012
According to new guidance from Britain's National Institute for
Health and Clinical Excellence's (NICE) up to one million people in
the UK are trapped in a "vicious cycle" of taking pain relief, only
for that to cause more headaches.
The reason this happens is unclear, but don't despair, there are
other ways to stem the throb of a headache, without resorting to the
little white pills. Here are four to try:
1. Acupuncture - NICE recomends this for tension and migraine
headaches. Not that convenient compared to a couple of Nurofen
2. Water - often that aching brow is just down to simple
3. Tiger balm white - it might not find favour with NICE, but
some of the Trending team find applying this herbal preparation to
their temples eases pain.
4. Massage - try rubbing away the tension, or better yet, get
someone else to manipulate your sore scalp.
