Headache Relief without Medication

I wanted to share with you this tip for Headache Relief without Medication. I suffer from migraines and normally I carry medication or essential oils with me when I am on the go however I forgot to pack them along with me and at Peyton’s soccer game I came down with a pounding headache.  I knew I was in trouble and I mentioned it to one of the other soccer Moms and she gave me a GREAT tip on how to cure the headache without taking medication.

Normally I don’t use OTC medication because I use essential oils but I was stranded without them and decided to give her tip a try.  I had nothing to lose except a pounding headache and I was concerned it was going to quickly turn into a migraine.

Headache Relief without Medication:

Her tip was to drink a 24 oz Gatorade or Powerade as quickly as possible!  What?  It just can’t be!!!  So I did it!  The headache starting edging off about half way through the sports drink.  As I finished it off I felt the headache starting to leave.  She told me that sometimes you have to drink 2 sports drinks to “cure” your headache but that is only if you are really dehydrated.  She asked me if I had been drinking enough fluids and as I thought about I knew I hadn’t.  When we go to soccer and I know there is only a portlet I often don’t drink a lot pre-game.  WOW!  I will never make this mistake again. The electrolytes in the sports drink help with the constricting of your blood vessels and in turn that helps your headache to leave.

I was thrilled with this awesome DIY for Headache Relief.  You can almost always find a sports drink when you are on the go.  I hope this tips helps others who suffer with headaches or migraines.

This is my go-to for how to treat a migraine or headache with essential oils.

  1. I swear by Gatorade. I too have found that it helps fight migraines as well as nausea. Whenever I feel a headache or upset stomach coming on, I reach for the Gatorade. Glad you found the easy remedy too.
