(NaturalNews) It's safe to say that countless people wish that they'd never suffer from headache again. Unfortunately though, the list of well-known pain relievers is quite short. Aspirin and even Ibuprofen sometimes no longer work for those who frequently rely on them. Well, several promising alternatives do exist.

Some advisable (albeit unconventional) migraine fighters

  • The Supplement Solution

There are experts who claim that supplements have the power to prevent the harshest headaches from arising. They believe that taking vitamins and minerals (such as magnesium and vitamin B12) would be enough to reduce the pain caused by migraine. It should be pointed out though, that supplements aren't safe for everyone. Simply put, those with medical conditions should ask their doctor before taking such pills.

  • On Pain-Relieving Needles

Here's another interesting alternative to non-steroidal painkillers - acupuncture. Of course, many would wonder whether or not they should try anything that's unscientific. Well, even though acupuncture is an ancient art of healing, it has scientifically proven benefits. In fact, German researchers have recently discovered that acupuncture can significantly boost the pain-reducing potential of common migraine medications.

  • A Warm Bath Can Help

This is a natural method to relieve the tension from headaches. Warm baths can make you feel relaxed after your busy work day, help refresh your body and unwind your mind so as to relieve the tightness that comes along with headaches. Taking a warm bath or shower for 20-30 minutes can be a big help.

  • Benefit From Natural Herbal Medicines

Some natural herbal remedies, such as ginger, rosemary, kava kava and skullcap, can help relieve stress, tension and muscle tightness as well as headache. Talk to your doctor before you take these herbal medicines.

  • Drink Enough Water

One of the most effective treatments for tension headaches is drinking enough water. Consuming too much caffeine, soda or alcohol can give you a pretty strong headache. Replace all of these with water to see improvements.


On Making the Right Choice

As made clear, choices do exist for those who want to feel relief. It should be emphasized, nonetheless, that none of the pain relievers mentioned in this article are perfect. Some come with health risks, while others are a bit expensive. Simply put, people who want to live a migraine-free life (or merely wish to experience less painful episodes) should think thoroughly before trying any unconventional solution.
