I married my loving husband in a beautiful church ceremony ten years ago. After our wedding, I moved into my spouse’s home. Unfortunately, the move required me to live 75 miles away from my family. Because I missed my parents, my grandmother, and my sister so much, I started experiencing anxiety. I didn’t wish to take medication for this condition. So, I researched natural anxiety cures. I was surprised to learn that eating some foods can help people battling this troubling disorder. Thankfully, by eating these foods, exercising, and thinking positively, I was able to overcome my bout with anxiety. On this blog, you will discover the best natural cures for anxiety.
Headaches, whether they are tension headaches, cluster headaches, or full-blown migraines, can make it nearly impossible to continue with your daily obligations. Many people wait until a headache becomes intolerable and then try to treat it. But a better approach is to try and catch a headache at its earliest warning signs and treat it then. Here are three natural ways to stop a headache in its tracks:
CBD stands for cannabidiol. It is a component found naturally in marijuana. Unlike THC, the better-known component in marijuana, CBD will not get you high. It does, however, have a lot of natural healing properties. It's very effective for relieving a lot of types of pain. You can purchase CBD oil in a cream form, which is easy to rub directly on the part of your body where you are feeling pain.
At the first sign of a headache, rub a few drops of CBD oil cream into each of your temples. Keep massaging for about a minute, as this will work the CBD into your skin, allowing it to take action. Then, close your eyes for a few minutes and take deep breaths. You should feel the signs of an oncoming headache fade away.
Aromatherapy involves using certain scents to ease discomfort and alter your moods. There are several scents that may help stop a headache in is tracks. Eucalyptus, peppermint, and spearmint work well for many people. Some prefer lavender, though it tends not to be as potent.
There are two good ways to make use of aromatherapy when you feel a headache coming on. You can dab a tiny drop of the essential oil on each temple. Or, you can put some of the essential oil in a diffuser with plenty of water, and let the scent fill the room. Breathe in deeply, trying your best to relax as the aromas have their effect.
Migraines and a lot of other headaches for that matter are caused or made worse by a constriction of blood vessels in the brain. Caffeine is a natural stimulant that can open up these blood vessels and stop a headache before it gets too bad. You can swallow a caffeine pill or drink a cup of coffee -- it's up to you. You might feel a little jittery afterward, but soon you will feel better. Drink plenty of fluids with your caffeine as it can cause dehydration.
