Forget Panadol, a good root is all you need

Most men instinctively know this, sex beats panadol for curing headaches, for some reason women are slow on the uptake…and they are the ones that always have the headache. Even though this is a good sales technique any proper bloke can tell you it has a poor success rate.

In fact sex is the cure for many illnesses and maladies.

A team of neurologists found that sexual activity can lead to “partial or complete relief” of head pain in some migraines.

The study, from the University of Munster, Germany, suggests that instead of using a sore head as an excuse to refuse sex, making love can be more effective than taking painkillers.

Their research, reported in Cephalalgia, the journal of the International Headache Society, found that more than half of migraine sufferers who had sex during an episode experienced an improvement in symptoms. 

One in five patients left without any pain at all, while others, in particular male sufferers “even used sexual activity as a therapeutic tool”, they added.

They suggested that sex triggered the release of endorphins, the body’s natural painkillers, through the central nervous system, which can in turn reduce, or even eliminate, a headache.

There you go, it isn’t a couple of panadol that is needed it is a decent root.
