The Headache Cures of Dr. Oz

Posted by on Jan. 21, 2013

A headache can often leave you looking for fast relief. Now Dr. Mehmet Oz, the famous cardiothoracic surgeon who made several appearances on The Oprah Winfrey Show, has an all-natural relief for you to consider as you try to find ways to beat the pain into submission.

In this article we look at tension headaches, which is the most common type of headache. People with tension headaches describe it as a vice squeezing their head. A tension headache is caused by the contraction of muscles that cover your skull, running from one ear to the other and around to the front of your head. Quite often a tension headache is caused by stress and lack of sleep.

For natural remedies, Dr. Oz suggests the following:

Peppermint Oil – Apply onto the hairline for a cooling sensation that relaxes the muscles in your head and neck;

Ginger Tea – Crush an inch of ginger root and add to boiling water. This reduces inflammation in the same time as it would take an aspirin to work.
