There is still a great deal more that we need to learn about headaches. We know little to nothing about how to treat them and yet they are still very common.

Headaches can range in severity from mild to agonizing, while some fortunate people will rarely get them, if at all. Painkillers will often help, but not always. In many cases, even medical professionals are left baffled as to what is causing them and what can be done about them.

There are some home remedies that will often be able to help, and here’s a look at some of the most effective.

Home Remedy #1: Dim the Lights

Our eyes are generally able to adjust to the light to prevent too much from getting in. Some people can still find that they are sensitive to lights, however, and this can cause problems for them. It is not uncommon for people to develop migraines because of the light entering their eyes.

In this case, you should try to turn the lights down low. Use dimmer switches if you have them, or try turning on lights in parts of the room that will not be too bright for you. Step away from the computer if you are using one, and consider wearing sunglasses if you are outside.
