Footbaths for Headaches

A friend suggested this, and I found it really helps.

    My head was aching and a kind friend suggested that I indulge myself in a foot bath by taking a basin of water and fill it with hot water and let my feet soak in the hot water for 20 minutes.  Indeed within that span of time my headache began to dissipate.  She told me that the congestion in my head would begin to drain downward.  So now, whenever I have a severe headache, I do use this simple method. 

     Water treatments have been used since historical times.  There is something soothing about the effects of water of different temperatures which aid the body and help to restore normalcy.  Hot and cold compresses have been used to treat people with everything from colds, pains and aches.  A soothing bath using fragrant bath salts have also been used to alleviate tension and stress.  Toning the skin can happen when after a warm bath,  cold or very cool water is used to rinse off  just before drying off.  

     The foot bath can also be done by sitting on the edge of a tub and just immersing them in a couple of inches of hot water.  If the water should cool too fast, more hot water can be added in the tub.  To be relieved of a headache and throbbing pain in just 20 minutes without taking a pill is truly beneficial especially for those who prefer more natural remedies. 

     Our bodies are fearfully and wonderfully made by God.   Try this simple method and see how it will work for you.
