Our bodies are clever, they tell us when things are wrong – so why should we ignore our headaches? Headaches can occur due to stress, hormone imbalance and high blood pressure to name just a few.
Of course, you should always consult a doctor if you have regular headaches so they can help you identify the cause.
Here are some areas to address to avoid or reduce headaches.
Seem obvious, right? You’d be surprised at how many people forget to consume enough water throughout the day. In fact, a majority of us only drink tea or coffee throughout the entire day.
We can’t expect our body and more importantly our brain to function in an optimal way without keeping ourselves hydrated. If you carry a bottle of water around with you EVERYWHERE you go, you’ll subconsciously drink a lot more.
A nutrient deficiency doesn’t necessarily have a lot of symptoms, a lot of people go undiagnosed for a long time. Headaches, however, can be a symptom that you have unmet nutrient needs. Most commonly, magnesium and vitamin B6.
3. Blood Sugar
If you go too long without food or you eat high sugar foods, your blood sugar levels will either spike or decrease and this can be a cause of headaches.
In this day and age it’s pretty impossible to live a technology free life. Our jobs, social occasions and catching up with family revolve around computers and phones meaning we are constantly surrounded by the electromagnetic radiation they emit. To limit this, turn off your phone at night and have regular breaks from your device.
