A Few Ways to Chase a Headache Away
The best therapy for a headache is one that suits the malady that it comes with. Here are a few ways that work well for most headaches.
1. Try and restrict the consumption of sugar. Though sugar in small quantities actually helps to cure headaches, excess sugar may trigger a headache or sometimes worsen an already existing one.
2. Consume plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables as they abound in vitamins A, C, E and B complex, zinc and iron all of which strengthen the immune system. Sources of these vitamins include green leafy vegetables (cabbage, spinach, broccoli), sprouts and red and yellow fruits and vegetables (tomato, orange, sweet lime, carrot etc.).
3. Avoid smoking as it can aggravate the headache.
4. Indulge in any activity you enjoy. Listen to music, go for a walk or cook as it keeps our mind and body fresh and alert.
5. A stress related headache will vanish with a warm oil head massage accompanied with a glass of warm Ginger and Lemon Cup.
