HEADACHES/MIGRAINE

A headache is a symptom, not a disorder, and can accompany any imbalance in the body systems. Headaches and migraines are often associated with stress, anxiety, and poor nutrition. The following are contributing factors:

  • Absence of nutritious food.
  • Allergy causing foods, such as wheat, corn, and dairy products.
  • Bright or flickering lights.
  • Cigarette smoking.
  • Constipation.
  • Edema.
  • Excessive intake of drugs (prescription and over-the-counter (OTC) and other medications).
  • Food additives, colorants, flavorants, and preservatives.
  • Foods: cheese, chocolate, alcohol, tea, coffee, wheat products, etc.
  • Head, neck, and other injuries.
  • Hormonal imbalances, especially those associated with menstruation.
  • Hypertension.
  • Loud sounds and noises.
  • Rooms deprived of fresh air (stuffy, smoky rooms).
  • Stress and anxiety.

 

To avoid migraines:

  • Attempt to avoid negative stress factors.
  • Avoid constipation.
  • Correct bad nutritional habits: avoid allergenic and carcinogenic foods.
  • Exercise regularly.
  • Avoid combining carbohydrates with protein.
  • Identify situations that trigger attacks and eliminate or improve these.
  • Increase quality fluid (water and herbal teas) intake, and avoid tea, coffee, alcohol, etc.
  • Learn relaxation techniques.
  • Minimize the body’s exposure to toxins.
