Avoid Foods that Trigger Headaches
Headaches and migraines are often triggered by certain foods. You may want to keep a food diary to document what foods are causing your headaches. Some common headache-causing foods are chocolate, red wine, coffee, cheese and processed meats. Steer clear of those foods causing you headache pain, stick to a healthy diet and don’t skip meals.
Work it Out
Exercise helps to prevent and relieve your headaches. Regular exercise may reduce the frequency or severity of headaches by reducing tension in your muscles and joints. Always warm up and stretch prior to your exercise. Walking, jogging, biking, and yoga are all great exercise options for headache relief. Mountain Park can help you establish a customized workout and exercise program that is right for you. Call today for details.
Drink Plenty of Water
Staying hydrated is important. Dehydration can be a big cause of a headache because the lack of water leads to reduced blood and oxygen flow to the brain. Try drinking a glass of water as soon as you feel a headache coming.
Massage & Essential Oils
Massage is helpful in addressing migraine headaches to help relieve pain and discomfort. Massaging your temples or the front of your forehead can help diminish your headache pain. The use of aromatherapy with essential oils can also be used as a preventative measure during a headache. Peppermint, rosemary, and lavender are some essential oils that may help to relieve your headaches and smell good too. Draw a footbath with peppermint and lavender oils—the hot water will draw your blood to your feet, easing the pressure on the blood vessels in your head. Need someone else to massage away the pain?
