When people with gluten sensitivity eat foods containing gluten, it can lead to a headache. According to the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness, patients who have undiagnosed celiac disease and migraine headaches often see either complete resolution of migraine headaches, or a significant reduction in the frequency and strength of symptoms after giving up gluten. Start this headache remedy by eliminating gluten for three weeks, then introduce foods containing gluten slowly. Pay attention to the way you feel when adding more gluten to your diet and find your happy balance.

Peppermint oil is also known for its ability to relieve headaches. It contains menthol, which can open up clogged blood vessels. You simply need to mix 3 drops of peppermint essential oil with 1 tablespoon of water, olive oil, or almond oil. If you want a steam treatment, you can add a few drops of this oil to a small pot of boiling water, and inhale the steam for about 3 minutes.

You may also put lavender oil drops on a tissue and inhale it. This type of oil can help improve migraine tensions. Headaches can also be cured by using certain herbs, like feverfew.

The leaves of feverfew are used to make medicine. Research shows that consuming feverfew reduces the frequency of migraine headaches and headache symptoms, including pain, nausea, vomiting and sensitivity to light and noise. A systematic review, completed by The School of Postgraduate Medicine and Health Science, U.K, compared the results of six studies. The results indicate that feverfew is effective in the prevention of migraine headaches and doesn’t pose any major safely concerns.
