Home Remedies

posted by guestblogger shocking shell

Painkillers are not doing squat for this headache. How about some home remedies?

My sister suggests:

* accupressure to the point on the hand between thumb and index finger
* brushing the hair to massage the scalp
* eating hot foods (cayenne, Texas Pete)
* putting a banana peel to the forehead

Got any home remedies to share? The weirder the better, although I doubt anything can top that banana peel one.


Dark room, cool cloth on your forehead, manservant.

Wish I had more to offer you.

Feel better soon, Shell!

Scotch, and lots of it. Won't do much for the headache, but pretty soon you won't care.

A headache is caused by a constriction of blood vessels in the brains.

The natural cure is quite simple.

Blood needs to be redistributed to one location of the body, slowly warmed to a boil, and then released, flooding the body with hot blood and opening all vessels and arteries wide, thus removing the headache, and, as a side benefit, shaking any detrimetal plaque from arterial walls.

The phenomenon that does all of this is commonly called coming.


Strange but true. And way flipping better than aspirin or tylenol.

This has been a "public service" announcement.

Dammit! Dave beat me to it! The body prioritizes pain. Make another part of the body more painful and you'll get rid of the headache.
