Dr. Oz Knows Cluster Headaches!

Posted by on Jan. 21, 2013

A cluster headache is a concentrated stabbing sensation in the head. Some people even go so far as to say it feels like an ice pick has been jabbed into their head. Known to be long-lasting, a cluster headache can last for days or even several weeks. Often it is accompanied by a runny nose and/or fever, and is quite common in winter due to temperature changes, but can occur at any other time of the year as well.

Dr. Oz suggests capsaicin cream to cure this type of headache. This cream has cayenne pepper as its active ingredient. To use, apply it on the side of your nostrils where most of the pain is. The cream works to block nerve pain signals. And the best part? It is inexpensive – around $11 in a health food store.
