This headache type is known to strike most ferociously in the Winter and Spring. Usually you wake up or go to bed with a kapha headache. It is accompanied by a cough or runny nose, probably gets worse when you lie down or bend over and characterized by a heavy, dull feeling in the face and head. Kapha headaches are commonly called a sinus headache because they are the byproduct of excess pressure in the sinus cavity.
What To Do:
To remedy this type of headache we must relieve pressure in the sinuses. Use a neti pot with salts will help open sinus channels. Drinking hot ginger tea and taking in pungent spices like black pepper, cinnamon and cloves reduces mucus congestion. Inhaling Eucalyptus steam is also great way to relieve a kapha headache.
