Some people are lucky and go through there lives almost never getting headaches.
Other people are stricken with throbbing blinding headaches once a week or more. As they can
be completely debilitating, finding effective headache remedies has become something a pastime
and obsession of mine. Even mild headaches can really make simple chores seem like major
projects. Because headaches are such a frequent occurrence in people, there are many headache
remedies out there to try.
The one thing you learn above everything else is that everyone is different. Since headaches have
so many possible causes, headache remedies vary considerably. If you can find the root cause behind
your headaches you’ll be able to narrow your search for headache remedies down a lot. For instance,
if you are suffering from headaches due to some kind of muscular strain in your back, shoulder, or
neck, you can avoid activities that inflame these areas, and look into therapies that may help you
recover. Likewise, if you are getting frequent sinus headaches, you may have allergies and some
allergy medications may serve as effective headache remedies.
Of course, often, you have no idea why you get headaches. Migraines can come on for any number of
thousands of reasons, and if you are prone to these types of headaches they can sometimes be
impossible to completely avoid. Drinking plenty of fluids, getting consistent regular sleep,
avoiding caffeine and alcohol, and getting regular exercise are all activities that supposedly
reduce migraines. Do all of these things as best as you can, and it helps a lot, but you will still
sometimes get stricken with blinding headaches. Headache remedies for these kind of spontaneous no
reason migraines are pretty much limited to painkillers.
Excedrin is the probably one of the best headache remedy most of the time. Unfortunately, Excedrin
has one little catch; using it regularly will actually give you headaches. Ironic, isn’t it? A
headache remedy that produces headaches? The reason why is because it has caffeine in it, and
unlike caffeinated beverages, the caffeine in pills tends to hit you all at once. Caffeine
withdrawal is chiefly characterized by one symptom; headache. So, if you find yourself taking
Excedrin regularly, you may find yourself with a horrible headache the day you decide to stop
For this reason, you can use Excedrin or any other painkiller with caffeine only as a last resort.
Aspirin, Advil, and Tylenol are also at least fairly effective headache remedies.
Healing Headaches with the power of your mind is not only possible it is natural. There is
certainly nothing wrong with taking aspirin or other pain killers to help ease a headache. But
there are other ideas and internal process you can take to ease the pain. Use these approaches and
ides along side of any medication you may be using from a doctor.
First off, start thinking in terms of transforming thh headache, instead of getting rid of it.
Getting rid of it just adds more mental noise and judgment. Shift your attention from judging the
headache to transmuting it.
Next, explore what a headache really is. Do not explore your idea of it, instead explore it. Feel
it. It is there right? Feel it. Get a sense of the sensation. Go into it. It has been said many
times that what you resist persists, and what you embrace you can erase. Approach your headache in
this fashion. Give in to it.
Giving into it is surrendering to the fact that you have a headache. It does not mean you are being
self-destructive. This does not mean you truly want to feel pain. It just means that you want to
accept the pain that you are feeling now.
Acceptance opens the door for a more spacious feeling in your brain. Acceptance of a headache gives
a sensation of openness, and that is what brings about the healing. Openness is peace of mind.
Openness is a calmness that surrounds the headache. Feel a sense of openness amidst the headache.
This is how you heal headaches.
Healing headaches is not difficult, because openness is your natural resting state of awareness.
Openness is like the ocean; your headache is like a floating piece of seaweed. Rest in the ocean
and the headache will become far less intense.
So, the trick to healing headaches is to let the seaweed (headache) float in a sea of awareness. Be
the observer of your headache, instead of being trapped in it. Being trapped in a headache is the
pain. Stepping outside of the headache is freedom from it.
The best time to practice this is when you do not have a headache. Pretend that you do have one,
from time to time. This may sound strange but it works. Feel your head. Feel as if you have a
headache and then try to get a sense of being larger than the headache.
Then, next time you have a real headache, you will have gained some skills. Healing headaches
happens when you become bigger than the pain. NO bigger in the sense of being able to withstand the
pain; just bigger in the sense of feeling bigger, feeling more expansive.
By all means, continue to take aspirin. But at a certain point you may find it not necessary.
Obviously, a great tool reported to help with headaches is to use the QuWave Harmonizer!
