    Do you drink coffee?
    I do. A lot of it.
    With it - apart from my "morning sickness";) - I cure headaches happening to me time to time. You can call it liquid paracetamol: it is coffee usual or a bit stronger, with certain spices - like cinnamon (the whole list of these I'm gonna need a dictionary, so it'll come later).
    Do you cure anything with coffee?

  • Though I don't personally have headaches, I do have friends who suffer from them chronically at times (particularly migraines), and many of them find relief from drinking a cup or two of coffee. Apparently the caffeine triggers some kind of chemical release in the brain to help headaches, as well as constricting blood vessels to help migraine sufferers sometimes get relief (especially when combined with aspirin).

    What I have found personally, however, it that black coffee makes an effective cleaning agent for hand removing certain kinds of films and residues off metal objects. It's particularly effective at getting that yellowish varnish-like nicotine/smoking residue off old office equipment like filing cabinets and steel desks. And, no, I don't smoke... but I have used coffee to clean up a lot of equipment coming out of offices where heavy smoking occurred for years.

  • Are you a cleaner? Like Leon the Professional? :D

    I checked a dictionary. It appeared cinnamon is the thing I use the most, which is right. Then there is nutmeg, it's rarer to find in shops and it costs more. Then I use cloves - if the pain is more persistent. How do you pronounce it? Like "cluvz"? Or like "kloe-vz"? Coriander some times can go in there too.

    Actually, my usual pills are called "citramon" here. It's like aspirin, plus caffeine there, and certain other ingredient I forget, it used to be something else before then the goverment banned it.

    Yeah, caffeine does some tonus thing to the blood vessels, also it's said to help the organism to drain the excess fluids out. Like in pissing*:)*

  • You should try meditation and spend some weekly time in the nature, walk without shoes at home and nature helps too.

    Drink some Sea water or Himalayan salt diluted in water it's so good too.
