Headaches can make even the simplest tasks seem overwhelming, but luckily our wellness expert Peggy Hall has some simple ways to help banish headaches -- or prevent them from coming on altogether!
"Before you reach for those pain pills, consider visiting Mother Nature's pharmacy for these home remedies," she says.
"The next time you feel a headache coming on, instead of thinking 'Oh no, here we go again,' take two of these tips...and call me in the morning," says Peggy.
What about taking pain relievers? Peggy says that they're most effective when you take them at the very first sign of a headache. But she recommends taking a tablespoon or two of liquid magnesium, which calms your nerve endings and really helps with tension headaches. As always, check with your doctor if you have any concerns about medication or if you get frequent headaches without relief.
