Coffee is probably your first thought when you hear the word ‘caffeine.’ There is a lot of caffeine in coffee, true, but did you know that there is caffeine in painkillers? That is because caffeine itself is actually useful in treating headaches. If you find yourself suffering from frequent headaches, you might consider jumping on the bandwagon and picking up a coffee habit. Be careful not to overdo it and drink too much caffeine though, because if you consume for than five cups of coffee a day you may find yourself addicted. Drink lots of water as well, because caffeine is a dehydrator and dehydration can also cause headaches. You can use coffee and other sources of caffeine to reduce the frequency of your headaches without medication, just be sure to drink your coffee in moderation.
