Natural ways to alleviate a headache
Headaches are one of the most irritating types of pain. They're not enough to stop you from going into work or doing your everyday chores, but they completely upset your whole day.
They make you tired, frustrated, unable to focus and upset.
Women especially seem to be plagued with headaches. Stress from work is only amplified by the endless amounts of chores and family work at home.
Although the majority of people turn to tablets to alleviate their headache, the relief given from paracetamol and ibuprofen is often brief and the pain simply returns hours later.
If you want to avoid chemical solutions, there are many natural homeopathic remedies you can try to help get rid of your headache.
Good old water is almost always the answer to any physical ailment. However, with headaches more than any other pain, water can be the quickest, cheapest and easiest solution.
Headaches are often down to dehydration, so drinking plenty of it rehydrates your body and your brain, lessening the pain of the headache and restoring you back to your normal perky self!
A great way to stop a headache in its tracks is to ensure that you get plenty of water every day. This will severely reduce your chances of getting ill.
Cut out the caffeine
Although many people believe that the cause of their headaches is a lack of caffeine, what not many individuals know is that caffeine is actually a main cause of the frustrating pain.
If you need a cup of coffee or tea to get you out of bed in the morning, that could be the root of your problem.
Of course a warm drink is an absolute necessity as the nights get colder, but why not try a herbal tea or drink instead? Not only are these free of headache-inducing caffeine, they are also full of vitamins which will you keep you healthy and happy.

- The Great Pomegranate Seed Oil Hi Kianouche, Thank you for your message. I would recommend to mix pomegranate oil with Marula oil for what you are looking to treat. A few drops of antioxidant-rich Marula oil mixed with Pomegranate oil can boost efficacy and help restore your skin’s functions in perfect equilibrium. Long term use may visibly minimise pores, brighten the skin, protect it from the oxidative damage caused by pollution, tones down pigmentation and assists with scar tissue healing. Hope this helps :)
- The Great Pomegranate Seed Oil Hi I’ve bought some of your pomegranate oil, together with rosehip and marula oils. Which of the other two oils would be better to mix with pomegranate oil for mature skin with hyperpigmentation due to sun damage and sometimes prone to spots and milia when using rich moisturisers. Also, can I use pomegranate oil by itself or combined with either of the other two oils around my eyes

- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHi Dolores, thank you for your message!Ashwagandha is an adaptogen so will adapt to your own bodies rhythm. It is a powerful way to regulate energy levels through the day so in some people may boost circulation and cell activity, which is why you may find yourself with insomnia. Everyone is unique and different, so will react to herbs and remedies differently. As you are using bio-identical hormones, I would advise you check with your GP, as there are often interferences with herbs. Perhaps you should try taking your Ashwagandha in the morning to regulate your bodies rhythm through the day.
