If you have strong and unbearable headache or high blood pressure, try this natural remedy that will eliminate the pain in just 20 minutes.
You need some gauze or fine cotton fabric that you will later use as a compress. Fold the gauze in 8 layers, and the compress should match your forehead.
Dissolve 2 teaspoons of salt in 8.5 oz/ 250 ml of hot water (60-70°C). Now you have 8% salt solution.
Headache is often caused by the food you eat, like diet soda, alcohol and processed foods.
Wash your forehead, ears and neck with some warm water. Soak the gauzes in the salt solution, squeeze out the excess and apply the compresses on your forehead, neck and around the ears. It is better if you lay down while the compresses do their job.
You will soon feel some relieve, but leave the compresses for a while. Lay for another 20 minutes. After you remove the compresses, rinse your neck, ears and forehead.
High salt intake often causes swelling and high blood pressure, but salt compresses have the opposite effect. They affect your health condition through the skin and stimulate the elimination of excess fluids from the body. You can treat swollen feet in the similar way.
