Natural methods for headache prevention
Taking medication for headaches is important if your headache is so severe that you literally can’t focus on anything else. But once we have reduced severity in the short term, we should turn our attention towards preventing the frequency of recurrence in the future. Here are our all-natural methods for preventing headaches:
- Focus on improving circulation: for both tension and migraine headaches, better circulation is an important element of prevention.
- Check your eyesight: shifting your focus and perspective can cause headaches. Make sure that your eyes are supported by corrective lenses.
- Focus on posture: poor spinal health can cause referred pain that originates further down the spine.
- Stay hydrated: dehydration is epidemic in America. And while it’s role as a headache trigger is little understood, there is no getting away from the fact that it does cause them.
- Fearlessly search for triggers: keep a journal of when your headaches occur. You may be able to discern a pattern which points to certain foods, activities or settings which lead to headaches.
