5 Ways To Eliminate Headaches Before They Start
Preventing Headaches is much easier than dealing with them
We cover water, msg, adjustments and more
With all the stress going on these days, I’ve noticed a lot of
people complaining about headaches.
So I wanted to send you a quick email to share with you 5 ways you
can eliminate headaches before they even start…WITHOUT pills!
1. Obey Your Alarm Clock
According to Dr. Lisa Mannix, a spokeswoman for the National Headache
Foundation in Chicago, pressing your snooze button may turn you into
a head case. As it turns out, snoozing in for more than an hour
after the alarm clock goes off can disrupt your sleep-wake cycle and
set you up for a tension headache later in the day.
2. Eat Smart
The substances in processed food–such as nitrates in luncheon meat
and monosodium glutamate (MSG) in some ready-to-eat food items–can
trigger a migraine in certain people. To be certain that you don’t
get “hit in the head” when you least expect it, grab an easy-to-eat
fruit when you feel hungry. Better yet, make an effort to lessen
your consumption of processed food.
3. Get Adjusted
In her article, “Stop a Headache Before It Starts,” Jaydine Sayer
explains: “The main sensory nerve in your forehead is rooted at the
base of your neck–which is why experiencing muscle tension there or
in your shoulders can lead to head pain.” When the spinal bones in
the neck get locked up and subluxated, it will cause muscle tension
and nerve irritation that can cause headaches. Getting chiropractic
adjustments regularly easily solves this problem for most people.
4. Drink Water
Doctors reveal that dehydration is a common cause of headaches. When
your body loses fluids, you also begin to “wilt” like a parched
plant. All your body functions go haywire and pretty soon you’ll feel
your head throbbing.
5. Take a Breather
Tension headaches set in when you’re stressed out. This is when your
cortisol and adrenaline levels surge. When this happens, your body is
forced to pump out sugar. “The rapid change in glucose levels can set
you up for pain. You have to give yourself a few minutes to
decompress so stress won’t get to you,” states Sayer.
There you have it. You can avoid the agony of a mind-numbing headache
by doing these simple things. There’s no need to pop pills when you
can get rid of pain the natural and healthy way!
Have a great day!
