How to alleviate migraine and chronic headache pain

The brain is the seat of pleasure–and sometimes pain. Migraines are believed to result from abnormal brain activity. The blood vessels, muscles and nerves of the head and neck can also be involved in head discomfort. Other than avoiding personal triggers, nutritional solutions to head discomfort can be used preventively or as needed for relief. Protocols for migraine headache and chronic pain provide innovative solutions for head and other bodily discomfort.

Frequently Asked Head Discomfort Questions

1.
What are some natural ways to get rid of a headache?

There are various natural remedies for headaches; most work best when used prophylactically (i.e. taken regularly for prevention, not taken after the onset of a headache). Micronutrients like riboflavin and magnesium, as well as botanicals such as butterbur and ginger, may be helpful in preventing headaches and making them less frequent. Avoid any foods that trigger your headaches, be sure to get plenty of sleep, manage stress and drink water throughout the day to stay hydrated. If you do get a headache, try warm compresses, relaxing and over-the-counter medications if necessary.

2.
What causes frequent headaches?

Headaches and migraines can be caused by several factors. Stress and anxiety, lack of sleep, and dehydration can trigger headaches in many people. If you experience frequent headaches, try to avoid these triggers. Migraines can also be caused by hormonal changes or low serotonin levels; hormone replacement therapy or antidepressants may help reduce the frequency of migraines in some cases.

3.
Can stress cause headaches?

Stress is a common trigger for headaches. People with increased stress levels are at a higher risk of recurrent headaches and migraines. Stress can also interfere with sleeping and eating patterns, both of which are linked to headaches and migraines as well. If you experience frequent headaches or migraines, try to manage your stress by practicing relaxation techniques (meditation, yoga), improving your diet, trying natural remedies like lemon balm and B vitamins, and when possible, removing the source of stress.
