Other than paracetamol and panadol, there are other ways to cure a severe headache. And here they are;

1. Drinking Ginger Tea

Crush up an inch of ginger root and add it to boiling water. This homemade tea reduces inflammation in about the same amount of time as it would take a paracetamol to work. Ginger tea has been used for centuries in Asia to treat a number of ailments.

2. Hot & Cold Compresses

Both heat and cold can provide headache relief, oddly enough. Wrap an ice pack (or a bag of frozen veggies) in a thin towel and apply to your head. Or you can apply heat to the back of your neck with a hot shower, bath, or heating pad. Heat also helps to loosen up the muscles that tighten with tension headaches.

3. Staying eyestrain

Staring at a computer screen for long periods of time is sure to leave your head aching. The most important thing you can do to avoid eyestrain is to take frequent breaks. Get up at least once every 15 minutes, and focus your eyes on something that is at least 20 to 30 feet away. Another tip for avoiding eyestrain is to adjust the brightness and the contrast on your monitor to lower levels. You should also have your monitor at eye level, and keep it at least 18″ away from your face.

4. Water

One of the most common causes of run-of-the-mill headaches is dehydration. A lot of people don’t drink enough water, and a headache is one of the most obvious warning signs. Drinking at least 4-6 glasses of water every day will prevent a lot of headaches.

5. Exercise

Exercise increases blood circulation which can help to relieve a headache. And if you’re exercising outside, the fresh air can also be beneficial. Exercise benefits and relaxes the whole body, so most sufferers of tension headaches experience marked relief with the addition of exercise.
