Headaches are one of the most common ailments. No matter your age, gender or health status, you’re likely to be plagued with these occasionally. Headaches generally fall into three categories: cluster, tension and migraine. Knowing which type of headache plagues you will help you find a treatment.

• Cluster headaches generally affect one side of the head and can cause intense pain for a few days before disappearing and reappearing later.

• Tension headaches are often described as creating a “tight band” of pain around the head. Tension headaches are often accompanied by pressure or a feeling of throbbing in the head or neck. The pain can be mild to moderate, changing with intensity during the day.

• Migraine headaches cause severe pain, usually one just one side of the head. Migraine headaches are characterized by impaired vision, sensitivity to light and nausea.

If you’re used to popping an aspirin every time a headache springs up, consider the dangers of taking over-the-counter painkillers—and consider one of these natural approaches instead.

I find that if I drink something with caffine, like coffee or tea, it helps since the caffine opens the blood vessels. I also found that I can put a heating pad on my head (best done at home...one cannot walk around with a heating pad on one's head!! ha! or maybe sit in an office), in a wee bit it opens the blood vessels and allows blood flow so the headache goes away. This has worked for me with all different types of headaches thru the years, and it is safe.
