In India an ayurvedoc ointment called Sensur is there. If you apply little on the forehead within 15 minutes the headache goes off. I do not know whether it is available there. Otherwise we apply dry ginger paste on the forehead and get relief.

Dry ginger would not be a problem here because we have tons of them, but like you correctly said, Sensur is completely unheard of here.

well.. this is not actually a herbal remedy, but it works. =) Take a regular Coke and simmer it. Do not boil it. Just simmer it up to the point it nearly boil. Then drink it. The coke will be just warm, not hot.

Yes just a little bit of apple cider vinegar in water every morning, apple cider vinegar is a blood thinner, I suffered three day headaches for years until I was told about this and for me and my sister it worked so long as we took it every morning...

Hi academic2..How's your headache these days? Just wana share this with you..I too suffered from a migraine for 8yrs....I have researched on ways and means on how to get rid of it but to no avail. In some ways, it was helpful to take painkillers but somehow it didn't last. And I am not a go-take-a-pill kind of person.I hate medicines. My migraine would attack if my menstruation would come or If I am so stressed at work. It was so painful that I would almost throw up and cannot go to work. Few months ago, I had this miracle... my colleague, who is a Christian had seen my pains and sufferings so one day he laid his hands on my head and said a prayer.. To cut the story short, my migraine miraculously had disappeared. I was thankful for him and he just said.."Don't thank me..Thank Jesus." So, right now, I am a true believer of Jesus. I am a walking testimony to His power as a Healer. For months now, I have not felt so alive and healthy. My migraine has totally disappeared except for some minor headaches which only could last for a moment. There are a lot of sick people who have been healed in our church...Believe it or not, AIDS victims have been healed too. But then again...it's what you think that matters...
