can be alleviated by cold compresses, baths, accupressure
and relaxation tecniques. You should minimize your
exposure to external stimuli, exercise in fresh
air and abstain from smoking and alcohol.
Relaxation & avoidance
Create a soothing environment, free of such external stimuli as light
and noise. Ventilate the room; a fan will help circulate the air (but
don't let it blow directly on you.) Close the windows and draw the blinds.
Turn off the radio and TV and unplug the phone. If the area is still
nosy, put cottom balls or ear plugs in your ears. Consciously try to
relax, preferably with the aid of a relaxation tecnique, such as yoga.
Help from Acupressure
Use your thumb and index finger to press against the bridge of your nose
at the corners of your eyes. Or, rub the center of the fleshy webbing
between your index and thumb.
A Soothing Footbath
A footbath diverts the blood supply from your head to your feet. Bathe
you feet in a basin of 95 degree water. Add hot water at 5 minute
intervals, until 115 degrees is reached. After soaking your feet
for 5 minutes, pour in cold water until the temperature is lukewarm.
Put on wool socks and lie down for about 20 minutes.

This time-tested home remdey can provide quick headache relief. Put a
few drops of fresh lemon juice into a cup of black coffee and drink
it in small sips. Warning! This is not for people with sensitive
