There are now many alternative and natural treatments to help people who suffer from headaches and migraines. In this article, I write about these type of remedies and also recommend the types of food people should avoid if they are always suffering from headaches and migraines.
There are many causes of headaches including:
- Excessive amounts of alcohol
- Over eating
- An incorrect posture
- Too much stress
- Problems with teeth
- Problems with a person eyes
It is important that we learn to deal with stress and to become more care-free. A lot of people react to stressful situations by turning to alcohol. This can only add to their problems and can lead to even more headaches.
If the person drinks to excess they may wake up with a hangover. If this happens to you I would advise you to drink plenty of water as you are likely to be dehydrated. Vitamin C is also useful to remove the alcohol quicker from your body.
If you are unable to live a stress-free life, it may be worth looking at alternative treatments. These are the types of natural therapy I would advise:
- Tai Chi
- The Alexander Technique
There are also certain foods and drinks which are a must to avoid for people who have regular headaches. These include:
- Citrus fruits such as oranges and grapefruit
Headaches are annoying enough, however migraines can be severely painful. I have suffered with migraines for a number of years and have now studied the subject seeking a cure. I am determined to not have to live my life, having these migraines regularly throughout the year, as the pain is unbearable. Maybe I am a bit of a wimp, but they really do cause me a lot of grief.
There are a number of reasons or causes for migraines. These include bright lights, certain foods or loud noises. I have to say that I think my own migraines are caused by stress and anxiety. I have always been a worrier and have suffered with a low self-esteem for most of my life. There are many reasons for this lack of confidence, which I will not bore you with at this stage.
I decided that I needed to deal with my stress as well as learning about how to eradicate the migraines.
I am now able to relax and have accepted that no one person is perfect. I realise that I will make mistakes and as long as I learn from them, then that is OK. Worrying does not help me in any case therefore I have to stop doing it.
I have also used alternative health therapies to help me to reduce my stress including:
- Herbal remedies
- Tai Chi
I still have headaches as I have to admit that I do like to have a few beers around once a week. I have not however had a migraine for around nine months now. I am a lot happier in life and have learnt how to manage my levels of stress. I regularly meditate and use other natural remedies as mentioned above. This is what has helped me and I hope it helps you to.
