Headaches and migraines are among the most common disorders of the human nervous system worldwide. In the United States, over 15 percent of all adults complain about severe headaches or migraines, and headaches are reported more than twice as often from women than among men.
Headaches can keep us from being the mother or father that we know we can be, they can decrease our enjoyment in daily life, and they can keep us from being as productive as we would like to be in our work day.
3 keys to getting rid of your headaches:
1. Eat the right foods
-Omega-3 Foods - Nuts, seeds and wild-caught fish (salmon), help control blood flow and lower inflammation.
-Organic, Fresh Fruits and Vegetables - They can provide antioxidants that help decrease inflammation, counteract effects of toxin exposure and balance hormones.
2. Avoid the wrong foods
-Sugar Breads or pastries made with gluten and yeast
-Caffeinated drinks Red wine and other types of alcohol
3. Look to the spine - Look at the structure of your spine. We mentioned that “Headaches and migraines are among the most common disorders of the human nervous system worldwide”. As a chiropractor I look at the structure that protects your nervous system, and often we find a misalignment or subluxation there that can cause a headache.
