    Cayenne may help, according to this site.

    Also, this is an excerpt from another site:

    Alternative Therapies

    Melatonin. Small reports indicate that melatonin, a brain hormone that helps to regulate the sleep-wake cycle, may help prevent episodic or chronic cluster headaches. Melatonin supplements are sold in health food stories, but as with most natural remedies, the quality of different preparations varies, and they have not been rigorously tested for safety or effectiveness. Hormones such as melatonin are powerful substances, and additional studies are needed.
    Glucosamine. There have been some reports that glucosamine, an alternative remedy commonly used for osteoarthritis, may prevent migraine attacks. Some researchers theorize this substance may reduce inflammation that affects nerves involved in vascular headaches. Whether this agent has any effect on cluster headaches is unknown.
    Additional Therapies. Many patients with cluster headaches try alternative remedies for relief of pain. Treatments may include acupuncture, herbs, chiropractic, homeopathic remedies, reflexology, hypnosis, spiritual therapies, massage, aromatherapy, relaxation techniques, and yoga. A 2002 survey of patients attending a headache clinic or support groups, however, did not find any of these alternative therapies to be consistently effective.
