Headache Remedy

Pliny, Natural History 28.22.76 (tr. W.H.S. Jones):
I find that a woman's breast-band tied around the head relieves headache.

invenio et fascia mulieris alligato capite dolores minui.
Hmm. I've suffered from frequent, severe headaches for as long as I can remember.

On the other hand, perhaps this remedy would be a violation of Deuteronomy 22.5:
The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God.
