Headaches are so common enough to make part of our daily lives. However, when a headaches strikes from being uncomfortable to downright unbearable it may interrupt your daily activities.
So, the first thing that pops-up in your mind is to take a painkiller to stop the unbearable tension, without thinking (because you can’t think anymore when you’re in pain) that a simple pill can have severe side effects over your body.
I saw my aunt struggling with headaches for years and she tried all sort of painkillers until her stomach start aching. That was the time when she said enough and decided to try some natural solutions.
She successfully combined yoga with an old remedy recommended by her yoga instructor. This seems to be best combo for headaches instead doping yourself with drugs to stop the pain.
Whenever a headache strikes you apply this pain relieving technique to release that pressure in the head.
- Hot/warm water
- A bag of frozen peas
- A small basin
How to proceed?
Well, fill the basin with hot/warm water and submerge your feet and hands in it. The next step is to put a bag of frozen peas at the base of your skull. Stay in this position until the pain is gone.
How does it work?
It seems that the heat from your extremities pulls the blood from your head, relieving that painful headache.
