Natural Relief from Headaches with Tea
Do you or someone you know suffer from headaches? Tea is a natural treatment for headaches that can give relief that has been used for centuries. Below are the most effective teas for headaches:
Ginger Tea: Ginger has long been used to treat headaches & migraines by reducing inflammation and providing pain relief. Ginger tea can be effective in the same amount of time as an aspirin is.
Green Tea: Helps with a sensitive nervous system or an improperly functioning digestive system which can cause headaches. Green tea stimulates the nervous system, activates the brain and eliminates free radicals. It also constricts blood vessels which eliminates headaches.
Peppermint Tea: Best for headaches that are accompanied by an upset stomach. Peppermint relieves spasms in the gastrointestinal tract which then relieves headaches.
Lemongrass Tea: Lemongrass has been used by indigenous Australians and is said to be as effective as aspirin in relieving headaches. Lemongrass also has many other health benefits including relief for digestive gas discomfort, diarrhea, vomiting, and pain in general.
Chamomile Tea: Chamomile has a natural calming effect. Chamomile has anti-anxiety, antihistamine, anti-inflammatory, and antispasmodic properties which are useful in curing headaches.
Cinnamon Tea: Cinnamon is a rich source of manganese, fiber, iron, and calcium which are all effective in relieving headaches. Try Chai Tea which contains cinnamon and is a good source of caffeine which can also aid in headache relief.
