Apple cider vinegar, a popular home remedy for many ailments, is also useful for headaches. Simply drink a glass of water that has a tablespoon of raw apple cider vinegar added to it! This natural remedy has helped many Earth Clinic readers with headaches stemming from a variety of problems.
Why Does Apple Cider Vinegar Help a Headache?
Headaches can be triggered by so many different health conditions. Apple cider vinegar isn’t helping a headache in the same way that an over the counter pain reliever (like acetaminophen or ibuprofen) would, apple cider vinegar is actually fixing the cause of the headaches.
Headaches can be cause by high blood pressure, allergies, constipation, blood sugar problems, and sinus problems to name a few. Apple cider vinegar is a proven remedy for all of these health conditions. If you solve your root problem, you will solve your headache problem. Of course, not everyone knows the root problem, so this also makes apple cider vinegar a great remedy because it has such broad applications.
Dehydration is a common cause of headaches. The apple cider vinegar and water tonic solves the dehydration problem, and it does so better than a glass of water would, because apple cider vinegar contains minerals which a dehydrated person is often lacking.
Dosage of Apple Cider Vinegar
While a common amount of apple cider vinegar to use for a headache is 1 tablespoon, this may be not quite enough for some people and too much for others. Some of our readers began using just a teaspoon or two of vinegar a day for other health issues and found their chronic headaches disappeared. Others found that 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water were needed to cure a headache. Unless you are used to taking apple cider vinegar, it is best to not start out with the 2 tablespoon dose.
