You can try stimulating some headache-relieving reflexology points at home. There are four headache remedy pressure points on your feet and one on the hand that when stimulated can help give you some headache and migraine relief. First massage the area between your big toe and the second toe. If your headache is in your right temple, massage this point on your left foot and vice versa. To relieve a headache, you can also press the Tai Chong or Liver 3 point on the top of your foot. Again massage this point on the foot opposite to the side of your head where you feel pain. Or, massage both feet if you have pain on both sides of your head.
One would also have to exercise control and restraint in other ways. For example, if one has a digestive complaint, then it would be a good idea to stay away from foods which over-stimulate the digestive system. In the case of a headache, quality sleep would be important. Or, if one has high cholesterol levels, then certain foods would have to be avoided. Without such efforts, any natural health cure or natural health remedy used would only be a short-term fix and be hampered in its effectiveness.
Go slow. Be careful not to stand up from either a sitting or lying down position too rapidly. This can cause a feeling of light-headedness, dizziness, or potential fainting in people with hypotension. The reason why this happens is because the heart has not pumped enough blood through the body quickly enough to account for the sudden change in position or elevation. If you’ve experienced this type of dizziness before, try to make your movements more gradual when transitioning to standing positions. If you’re lying down, first sit up for a few seconds and then slowly stand.
