According to, http://www.migrainetrust.org

Migraines often occur for the first time in your teens or early 20’s. It is most common in the 30 to 40 age group. At least 90% of people with migraine experience a first attack before the age of 40. Generally it is true that migraine improves as we get into our 50’s and 60’s. Studies show 40% of people with migraine no longer have attacks by the age of 65. Before the menopause, three times as many women as men have migraine. After 60, when hormonal factors are less likely to play a role, twice as many women as men have migraine.

Many people suffer from migraines and headaches at one point or another in their life. The pain of a headache can make day-to-day life a miserable , and forces us to head straight for the aspirin.

Natural remedies for headaches may take a little bit more work but they are very cost-effective and they won’t wreak havoc on your body like other over-the-counter or prescription pain-killers do.

Here are 5  simple ways to reduce your headaches:

1. Drink Up:
Scientists have found that regularly sipping water can reduce the severity of headaches and migraines and help reduce the need for prescription medication.

2. Munch on Ginger Root: Ginger root, a natural alternative,  if you’re getting knocked with a migraine, it can help quell your nausea. Simply sip a nice steaming cup of ginger root tea and relax while you wait for your headache t subside.

3. Stretch and Relax:
Our lives are fast paced, busy, and filled with more than a little stress. Doing some simple yoga will get your mind focused, and stretch out your muscles. Just doing a few moves when the pain starts up can help.

4. Hot soak or shower:  One of the best ways to relax is in a hot/warm tub, or a hot shower.  Spending time soaking helps to relax your muscles in your brain and your body.

5. Hot Or Cold?  There’s evidence to support both hot and cold compress treatments. Applying something cold to the area can constrict those vessels and relieve some of the pressure causing the throbbing ache. When applying something hot to the area it can relax your muscles. You can use an eye pillow either heated up or cooled off to treat your aching head.

So the next time you feel a headache coming try these 5 simple tricks and see if you can stop that headache in its tracks. I hope all you headache suffers can find relief from your sufferings!

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.

About Black Raven Creations

I love to create things and am one of those people who has to keep my hands busy. I have always been this way. If I am not "creating" in some form I tend to get depressed and blue. I spent many hours at my Grandmother's knees learning how to china paint, knit, and crochet. My home is now filled with items I have created thanks to my Grandmother!! She was a great and loving teacher and I was an eager learner. I have not only filled my house with my creations, but I have filled other family members homes as well. My oldest son told me recently "no more", he will not accept another painting, quilt, or wall hanging of any sort...his walls are filled!! Since my friends and families homes are filled, I have acquired a large pile of finished products... I was encouraged for years to open an Etsy shop, So I finally did!! In my shop you will find my creations using a wide range of textiles all created and made by my hands lovingly taught by my Grandmothers hands. All items are 100% handmade!! There are paintings, hand-stitched items, knitted and crocheted items, sewn items and many more. I hope you enjoy investigating my shop and if you have any questions just ask me. I am looking foward to running my shop and getting to meet new and exciting people. I hope to be able to service this community for many years.
