Everyone gets headaches from time to time. It’s an incredibly annoying aspect of life, but it’s simply unavoidable. There’s nothing worse than suffering from one while you’re trying to get some work done. They’re quite debilitating.

While your obvious initial instinct upon developing a headache is to reach directly into your medicine cabinet, you might want to rethink that. It turns out that taking Ibuprofen isn’t always the best method to get rid of a headache.

In fact, there’s another method that’s easier and more affordable! It’s time to wave goodbye to those debilitating, lasting headaches that can really ruin your day. Not only is this the most effective method of ridding yourself of those horrific aches, but best of all, the solution is already sitting in your kitchen right now…

What is this magical headache relief, you ask? Well… ice cubes! Recent research is showing that when suffering from a debilitating headache, if you apply an ice cube to this exact point on the base of your neck, something miraculous happens.

The point at the base of the neck is called Feng Fu in Chinese medicine. When an ice cube is applied to this pressure point, the body releases endorphins as a response to the extreme cold. You can see the exact placement on the model below.

If you’re worried about the cold feeling of an ice cube on the back of your neck, don’t worry. It’s perfectly fine to place a napkin or even a dish towel around the cube. Just be sure that you can at least feel the cold touch on your skin.

Some people are swearing by this new method, and it’s both fast and effortless. The convenience of only having to go to the refrigerator every time you have a headache, instead of scrambling to find medicine, is an incredible relief in and of itself.

Here’s how this amazing method works: the cold feeling of the ice cube on the back of your neck helps to activate the neural cells in your body. In turn, this gets the blood flowing to aching parts of your head and improves the pain.
