I have suffered from headaches and migraines for years. These 5 remedies are what usually work for me. If I feel a headache coming on first I start drinking water, and make a ginger tea to sip. Then I start a very simple routine of Yoga and stretching exercises. Next is a hot soak in the tub to relax myself. After all this I lay in a dark quite room with an eye mask on blocking out the light, then I use hot and cold compresses to get the relief I need. Rhonda…Black Raven Creations.
