I get headaches a lot.  While I’ve pinpointed one trigger (artificial sweeteners), they still come on a regular basis– probably 3 times a week.  While I love Excedrin, I know it’s probably a bad idea to take it so often because it will lose effectiveness.  I’m looking to go a more holistic route when my headaches aren’t really bad, but still annoying.  Do you have any ideas?  Do you find lavender to help, or cold compresses?  Do you do acupressure on a pulse point?  How do you keep headaches form starting in the first place?
