Dr. Folgers

{The Headache via Mir's Designs}

I'm prone to headaches of all sorts: sinus, tension, migraines ... they all hit, all the time. Each type requires different treatment, and it's taken me years to find the perfect combos. I thought I'd share my secrets with you!

For tension headaches, I love Excedrin Tension. It's magical! I also use heat packs on my neck and shoulders, as well as take relaxing baths. I learned how to do Biofeedback when my migraines were at their worst, and that can kill tension headaches and migraines better than anything.

Lately I've been getting sinus headaches that leave me in a pile on the couch with ice packs on my face. The best cure for these has been strong coffee. Did you know that coffee is an antihistamine? A single cup of Folgers cured today's headache, when Ibuprofen and Sudafed couldn't.

I know how miserable head pain can be, so I truly hope these tips help those of you who suffer as well. Please, take a few minutes to learn about Biofeedback. It can change your life!

  1. Good tips. I've heard of biofeedback with putting a hand on a "scanner" to see what is best for you and treatments. Cool. :O)

  2. I used to suffer from pretty severe, actually debillitating migraines that required a trip to the ER and a shot to control. I found I could head some off at the pass at the first signs by taking BC Powder of all things. A friend had recommended it.

    I really can't take meds now, and another thing I learned, Jen, is to drink lots and lots of water in addition to lying down in a cool, dark room. Sometimes headaches are brought on by being dehydrated so staying hydrated is VIP.

    Thanks for your tips!
