Have you ever heard someone say “Regular headaches are part of my life, so I guess I have to put up with the pain”? Great news, that does not have to be the case.
Did you know there’s no such thing as a normal headache? That’s right. A headache is type of symptom, the body’s way of telling us that something is wrong.
Are you aware of what all headache types have in common? Stress. Stress comes in three types: chemical, physical, and emotional. All three can cause headaches. A tension headache is anything, but fun. It feels as if the forehead and temples are being squeezed. A hormonal headache to top off the day? No thanks, yet many women suffer. Hormonal headaches feel like migraines. They occur during menstruation, pregnancy or menopause, or from birth control pills.
With pulsating and unilateral pain, light sensitivity, visual disturbances, and nausea, migraines feel downright awful. Forget potatoes chips. Studies have shown that the risk of migraine increases almost 40% in women which general or belly obesity, and 30% in me with belly obesity. Why?
It’s thought that pathways in the brain’s hypothalamus which regulates feeding also regulate migraines. Stimulation of the brain by overeating can therefore lead to headaches. Many people reach for aspirin. Yet, are headaches caused by a lack of aspirin? Of course not. Aspirin may temporarily cover pain, but it does not fix the cause. When one relies on aspirin, headaches will return.
How exactly does stress cause headaches? Stress, regardless of type, causes vertebral subluxations. Subluxations prevent the nervous system from working properly and symptoms like headache can result. Removing subluxations can relieve headaches without the use of drugs.
Quiz time. Spoon this chemical substance into your beverage only if you love getting headaches. It’s name is … Hint: Brand names include NutraSweet and Equal.
What is aspartame? Artificial sweeteners are stressors. Upon the body breaking down aspartame into its free-floating amino acid form, headaches and dizziness can occur in a snap.
Have you ever said, “If I don’t drink soda, then, what am I supposed to drink”? If you’re laughing, you know you have. The answer, water, and plenty of it as dehydration is one of the most common causes of headaches.
Another quiz. Sleeping on more than this many pillows can leave you with a morning headache. Hint: it’s the same number as the number of brainstems in the body. What is more than one? Sleeping on more than one pillows straightens the cervical curve. Subluxation, pressure on the brainstem, and headaches can result.
Fiction? Mystery? Memorizing the dictionary? Read with your book held eye-level via a reading stand, adjustable in height and angle. Looking down to read strains the cervical spine and headaches can develop.
The road to developing headaches later in life begins at the first subluxation everyone experiences, during one’s own birth. Vacuum extraction and forceps delivery are traumatic to a newborn’s cervical spine. Even normal birth causes subluxation. Yikes! How can one undo the damage? By a chiropractic correction on day one of an infant’s health.
Spinal subluxations prevent the nervous system, thus entire body, from working properly. Symptoms like headaches can result. Removing subluxation can relieve headaches without the use of drugs.
