I am having headache almost everyday because I have to do some readings and my schedule is really hectic but I am one of those people who doesn't want to take over-the-counter medicines as much as possible. If I can still handle the pain, I just try to take a nap or massage my head. Nowadays, it will take sometime before my headache disappears so i would to know other things you do in relieving headaches aside from those two that I do. I also use ointments such as "white flower" to relieve the pain. Any input will be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Hi there Chrysz! Here are some useful information that I found about natural remedies for migraine: Fasting on orange juice and water Cleansing the body of toxins is important for effective treatment of migraine headache. Fast for 2-3 days on orange juice and water. Alternatively, fast on juices of carrot, celery or cucumber. Avoid foods like white flour products, sugar, tinned or preserved foods, etc To prevent migraine avoid or reduce white flour products, sugar, confectionery, rich cakes, pastries, sweets, refined cereals, greasy foods, tinned or preserved foods, pickles, condiments and sauces. All-fruit diet 3-4 fruit based meals for about 2-3 days after the juice diet could help relieve some of the migraine pain. Well-balanced diet of seeds, nuts etc. Adopt a well-balanced diet consisting of seeds, nuts, grains, vegetables and fruits. Include milk, yogurt, buttermilk, vegetable oils, and honey. All fruit diet for a couple of days each month can keep your body cleansed as a migraine therapy. Eat frequent small meals, Copious drinking of water is essential. Drink water regularly and in good quantity. Eat frequent smaller meals than lesser large meals. This help your digestion process.

Thanks nanay angel! I'm now surfing on the site you gave me. But I am not sure if I could have the fruit diet as I am a rice eater. I eat small meals everyday but I also have sweet tooth so basically, most of the food I take in are sweet. Thanks anyway and I'll try the water therapy now.
