4 Steps to Curing a Headache

this fast-action guide can fend off minor health woes


Put down your smartphone.

A recent study found that people hold their mobiles way too close to their faces when texting or surfing online, which can strain the eyes. That, in turn, may lead to a headache.

If that doesn’t work. . .

Drink water.
Just being mildly dehydrated can cause severe headaches, per a 2012 study in The Journal of Nutrition. Drinking down a full eight ounces of H2O may quell throbbing in minutes.

If that doesn’t work.


Take a time-out.
Tightness across your temple could signal a tension headache caused by stress. Retreat to a quiet corner—even a bathroom will do!—and use your fingertips to massage your forehead in a circular motion. As you knead, take five slow, deep breaths; inhale through your nose, exhale through your mouth. Pause, then repeat.

If that doesn’t work. . .

Head for the herbals.
Research in the journal Headache revealed that holding anti-inflammatory ginger (in tea form or crystalised)—can curb early headache pain. Try Aloe Heat Lotion or Aloe Gelly on the temples. Still not better? Pop a couple of ibuprofen.
