Learn More About Headaches

A headache is defined as pain that occurs in any area of the head. Some are severe, isolated, throbbing or dull. Most people reach for an over-the-counter pain reliever, unfortunately overuse of this type of medication can lead to liver conditions.

There are many types of headache and reasons people have them:

  • Tension Headache triggered by stress can affect head, neck and shoulders area
  • Sinus headache, associated with allergies, illness or dry air
  • Menstrual / hormonal headache
  • Caffeine withdrawal
  • Toxic headache (infections, alcohol, chemical exposure)
  • Hypertensive headache
  • Dehydration

Some lifestyle recommendations include:

  • Increase fibre intake (fibre pulls toxins from the body)
  • Maintain regular exercise
  • Avoid tyramine foods like chocolate, red wine, cheese, beer and meat
  • Drink lots of water, stay hydrated
  • Improve sleep hygiene
  • Reduce stress
  • Reduce your toxic load ( NSAIDS, toxin exposure in products and food)
  • Add magnesium. It helps to reduce tension on all levels: physiological, physical, and emotional. It calms the nervous system to promote sleep and alleviate pain. It also relaxes the mind to reduce feelings of stress and anxiety
  • Cleanse and support the liver. When the liver isn’t able to keep up with our detox demands, we may experience fatigue, headache, poor memory, acne, hormonal imbalances, nausea and/or abdominal pain caused by a build-up of toxins in the body
