Struggling with frequent headaches?
Let’s look at some natural ways to stop the most common type of headache - the tension headache - before it ever starts.
Tension headaches are often caused by muscle tension, poor posture, and stress.
Here are some things you can do to reduce your number of days with head pain:
1️⃣ Hydrate. One extremely common cause of headaches is simply not drinking enough water. Try coconut water for effective hydration.
2️⃣ Eat healthy meals. If you skip meals or eat lots of sugar or carbohydrates, your blood sugar could crash and trigger a headache.
3️⃣ Avoid trigger foods. Keep a food and headache diary to see if any specific foods tend to trigger your headaches.
4️⃣ Move & stretch. Sitting for long hours and poor posture can stress your shoulder and neck muscles, leading to a tension headache.
5️⃣ Take supplements. Magnesium relaxes your muscles and nerves. B vitamins and CoQ10 support cellular energy production. Feverfew is an herb with a long history of use in traditional cultures.
6️⃣ Try essential oils. Dab or roll peppermint oil into your temples and neck or diffuse lavender in the room. Essential oils can have a calming and refreshing effect.
7️⃣ Take an epsom salt bath. An epsom salt bath will relax your muscles and gently support your body’s detoxification.
