Headaches, Migraines and Pain – Natural Health Solutions
Most people experience some form of chronic pain at some point in their lives. The most common are lower back pain and headaches. The most common solution is simply to take aspirin. Have you ever wondered if there are certain lifestyles that cause you headaches or migraines?
There are many causes of headaches and migraines, but one of the main causes is stress. Stress manifests itself in the body in different ways. Some people will experience anxiety, insomnia, digestive problems, weight gain, and others – migraines or headaches.
Poor diet – Some foods such as dairy, gluten, chocolate, soy, fizzy drinks, shellfish, can cause headaches and migraines. You can order an expensive allergy test from your doctor or simply give up this food for five days and then re-enter it into your diet. This is the cheapest and easiest way to check. You can also start cleansing under the supervision of a doctor to remove toxins and contamination from the body. Ask your naturopath or your doctor what supplements they recommend to improve digestion and digestion or help you cleanse yourself.
Lack of sleep – do you sleep at least 8 hours a night? Are you sitting at your computer a few minutes before you sleep? Do you often wake up family at night? Is your room warm enough or cool enough? Do you avoid caffeine, alcohol and food at least 3 hours before bedtime? Most people in today’s digital age are so connected to their mobile phones, TVs or computers that they are not disabled enough to go to rest. Their nervous system is tuned to a high degree of stimulation, which makes rest difficult. Start a new night routine by avoiding your computer, phone calls, alcohol and caffeine, and instead take a hot bath, read a book, or do light yoga or meditation.
Structural problems – did the MRI doctor order to make sure you don’t have structural problems such as a hernia? Weak ligaments on the back of the head (the proportion of occipitool) can disturb the anatomical stability of the head. Prolotherapy, which involves injections of a sugar solution into the ligaments, can help repair ligaments without surgery or medication.
Other causes of headaches and migraines may include toxic chemicals (usually found in household cleaners and cosmetics), the wrong pair of glasses and too long computer screen surveillance. Switch to a greener brand of cleaning products, perfumes (or stop using perfumes) and use cleaner cosmetic products that do not contain aggressive chemicals (don’t be fooled by seeing flowers or trees on the label). Look for terms such as USDA Certified Organic and shop at reputable sources such as Whole Foods, which have higher standards for their products than most pharmacies.
