Dealing with a headache is exhausting and dispiriting, and far too many people have regular headaches. According to WHO, around one in two people worldwide experience some form of headache disorder that manifests at least once a year. For many of us, the symptoms are far more frequent than that. Over-the-counter painkillers usually help with headaches. However, if you get headaches all the time, you might prefer to avoid taking these medications. When you have a mild headache, it may feel unnecessary to ease it with drugs. Fortunately, there are many home remedies that you can use instead of, or in addition to, painkillers.
