Cluster headaches, tension headaches, sinus headaches — In some form, headaches have affected everyone at one point in time. Headaches can occur because of a number of different reasons. Everything from food sensitivities to dehydration can trigger a headache.
Life can get pretty busy and stressful, and the “common” headache is often overlooked or masked with a painkiller, but you can naturally and quickly find relief from home headache remedies without having to live with the pain or mask the symptoms with conventional painkillers.
In this video, Jordan Rubin and I discuss our top 11 natural headache remedies. We cover vitamins and minerals, exercises, nutrition, essential oils, herbs and lifestyle changes that can improve the severity and frequency of your headaches — and potentially eliminate them.

What are some ways to cures your sinusitis safely? I read lots of good reviews on the internet about how Sinuzolax Miracle will help you cures your sinus safely. Has any one tested out this popular sinusitis treatment?
Im having HORRID HEADACHES/MIGRAINE TYPES! I know mine are triggered by the lack of sleep I am receiving because I work 2 jobs😑 Also My diet...ive been eating more processed foods cause of my new work schedule...Im VEGAN and have a super clean diet normally...however, since the 2 jobs plus lack of sleep (5 hrs a night 6 days a week) I have most definitely triggered my migraine headaches! I also suffer sinuses that adds to the inflammation. I feel great after well rested sleep..but head aches get worse through the day/debilitating bad😞
interesting points ,if anyone else needs to find out about best cure for migraine try Hopandar Stop Migraine Helper (do a search on google ) ? Ive heard some great things about it and my m8 got excellent results with it.
Lol lol I can't believe it..just water..my head was killing me since last night. I decided to look on YouTube for a natural cure. The WATER really worked. I was apparently dehydrated because it work instantly LMBO!
is there something you can tell me to tell others of what they can make as an alternative to their taken TOPAMAX for headaches/migraines of what occurs before a seizure, but the side effect is headaches-especially if they try to ween themselves off to somewhat self control their thoughts. *it's said to be a Natural remedy for majority if all/some high cost prescription medicine.
Shalom Dr. Axe, I have hormonal migraines. They are so debilitating... I have been recording them for a couple years. I take magnesium, I use essential oils. I take a bath with Epsom salt and lavender. I drink lots of water. I use peppermint oil and use other essential oils to try and help. But I still get migraines during my menstrual cycle. I am in my mid 40's Please, tell me what I can do for a hormonal migraine naturally. Thank you! Blessings
I find that some essential oils are triggers for migraines for me. I am sensitive to smells, my very first migraine was triggered by perfume. Over time I've discovered that there are number of natural aromas that can be triggers for me, some have developed over time. Lavender is now a problem to me, and I've triggered a migraine with eucalyptus oil as well. It would be good to warn people that this can be a problem for some people, otherwise those people may actually make their migraines worse by using essential oils.
Magnesium has helped me, and I've recently started butterbur. For my tightness in the neck, making a point to consciously relax often has helped, so has rubbing magnesium oil directly on the neck area, along with massage.
Thanks for the presentation. I agree with a lot of what you said and am working on trying different things at present since I've had a rather dramatic increase in migraines recently.
I have cervicogenic headaches I have cervical spondylitis. My garden has many herbs. (with an 'h') amongst them is a massive feverfew plant. When I feel a headache starting I pull off a couple of leaves and chew them. The headache goes in no time... Wonderful stuff... Good for lots of other pain relief too, Arthritis is a very important one...
Don't forget about physical therapy!! We can do alllll kinds of natural remedies such as; soft tissue mobilizations, joint mobilizations, ergonomic assessments/ posture education, active release treatments, assess muscles around the skull that could be tight - suboccipitals, Sternocleidomastoid, upper trap, levator, paraspinals, also, TMJ muscles (buccinator and etc), functional movement, ROM deficits at joint or limited by musculature, movement compensations. There is soooo much more to PT that people even realize. It's way more than exercises- it's more of a neurophysiological approach to functional movement. Neurodevelopmental sequence is just an example!!
Hi, love your vids. I, too, suffered from 12 to 40 years with migraines. Lots of vomiting, light and sound sensitivity. I removed most processed food from our family diet and kept a diary. My headaches disappeared. My diary revealed that 80% of the time when I ate out, I had a migraine about 48 hours after. I mention this to my doctor but she said a 2 day delay was impossible. Is it possible? I am just happy they are still mostly gone after 10 years and I know that they are caused by food for me.
I suffer from hormonal migraines monthly. Does anyone have any tips that can help? I can not take BC pills any more because apparently when you're middle aged you're at a higher risk for blood clots while on them. It was the only thing that helped for a while.
Hello Dr's, I have chronic migraines and actually rejoice in the a day that I don't have a headache /migraine. I am so done with scripts!!! I have lost my job bc of them. I've never heard of butterbur. I will try this along with the bone broth. everything else I'm doing. Is there anything else???? PLEASE HELP?
That explains a lot. I have headaches constantly! I started aligning my ears over my shoulder like Dr. Axe suggested; its a bit awkward but I have less neck stress. I'm a person who has many different types of pain at almost all times. I have Sciatic nerve pain and use Peppermint oil before doing yoga to help relax my body so there is less pain during the stretching. I sit at a desk attending to customers literally 16 hours a day and now I will get up and walk around whenever the opportunity arises. I've tried using Lavender at night to help me sleep, it hasn't been working really due to my back pain, or shoulder pains because I'm trying to sleep on my sides but I just end up hurting my shoulders; or my period. So I would like to know what I could do to help this problem; do I use Lavender with another oil?
Hi Dr. Axe. I use essential oils quite often to help me manage my headaches. I usually use peppermint oil and lavender or a headache blend. Peppermint oil helps for most mild headaches. I have noticed that sometimes depending on the type of headache that the oils can aggravate the headache. I get migraines and other episodic headaches similar to cluster headaches.
Can I use spearmint because I do not have peppermint oil will spearmint oil work like peppermint oil. do High Blood Pressure make you have headache if so what can you do for that. can I use spearmint oil.
A long term headache sufferer, finally under some 'control' with more natural methods, such as the great oils advise from Dr. Axe's website. Now, however recurring vertigo is making life miserable. Have tried some oils, but only get minimal relief. Looking forward to the vertigo video.
Peppermint oil is my first level "go to" for migraines or cluster headaches. The peppermint oil immediately takes the pain down by 30%. I wipe a drop under my nose and breathe deeply and it is amazing the quick relief. Wiping peppermint oil on the back of my neck also relaxes the muscles and helps calm down the headache too. I have not been successful putting it on my temples because it always gets in my eyes and that is not pleasant.
I almost always avoid aspirin (coated aspirin has 14 toxic ingredients and it needs to be chewed so it doesn't sit on top of a blood vessel and then slip down into the blood and causes bleeding - I use horse aspirin in bulk) - so I put peppermint all over my forehead and neck to replace aspirin.
I have Celiac Disease so am 100% gluten free. It's helped my migraines greatly. What foods can help my fibromyalgia...are there oils for it? I also have lichen planus. Thanks so much. Blessings....Beverly
Hey Dr Josh Axe. I have a question that relates to oral hygiene. What is this yellow line between tooth and gum on the top row of my teeth i have it throughout all my top row teeth and its already formed a small cavity on my permanent tooth. This really brought my self confidence down. Help please?
