One of the most common questions we get when people find out that we don’t take medication of any kind and don’t even have it in our house: “What do you do if you have a headache???!!” Haha! Cracks me up! Our society is so used to medicating for everything under the sun that NOT medicating is a foreign concept! To me, that’s sad!
Just the other day, I woke up in the middle of the night with a horrible headache! Sinus pressure causing my whole entire head to throb! Did I run to the medicine cabinet and down a few Excedrin? Tylenol? Advil? NOPE! I did run to the “medicine” cabinet (which I’m thinking of renaming, since it has no medicine in it!) and downed a couple of fish oil soft gels! Guess what? Within 15 minutes I was feeling great and dozing back off! Shocker, I know, that you can get rid of a headache without one of those over-the-counter wonders that are harmful to your liver!
It’s true, fish oil is among other things good for relieving headaches because it works as an anti-inflammatory. Chiropractic adjustments can also help, but obviously that wasn’t an option at 3am! On some occasions, sleep or cold/hot compress can help. I’m sure there are many other natural remedies, but these are the ones I’m aware of so far! Try it sometime!
