Severe Persistent Headaches
Migraines affect people of all ages and in all countries. When people seek help they often end up on a cocktail of drugs. Most importantly people need to learn their personal triggers so they can tell their physician and get individualized care. Homeopathy World Community will present a special show on Monday, June 11, 2012 that addresses ten reasons why migraines affect men.
Triggers of Migraines
Migraines which are defined as particular types of headaches that affect an individual on a regular basis through specific triggers may be relieved through lifestyle adjustments, avoiding triggers, physical manipulation to the body, change in environment and homeopathic care. We know that overall hereditary and daily compounded stress can result in severe headaches. When we push ourselves over the point of fatigue and exhaustion, or over exercise, don't take into account our posture or ergonomically control our desk environment these factors can bring on headaches. Don't forget how we feel with that headache and how it can settle in the eyes. Even something as simple as sewing or detailed artwork that strains the eye muscles may provoke head pain. We must recognize the importance of sleep to general well being and peak functioning of our body and mind. Certain known stimulants, like caffeine and alcohol, taken in quantity will affect everyone and for those sensitives even a small amount will trigger headache.
Habits and Lifestyle
For some people sitting at a computer or keeping the lights on throughout the night, instead of taking that much needed rest in a darkened room will put too much demands on the body. And flashing lights or particularly pulsating fluorescent lights may disturb many people. Of course, anyone can have a side-effect to drug medication, so check with your doctor if you must take medicine to check the interaction of drugs with other foods and medicines you take. Related to drugs which we put into our body, we might have to check our blood sugar level, especially for those prone to heart disease, high blood pressure, hypoglycemia, fluctuating blood sugar levels, weight problems, insulin resistance or diabetics. That means regular meals and snacks may help some people stave off periodic headache attacks.
Support The Immune System
Intense headaches may accompany illness and infections, indicating your vital force and immunity has dipped low. Along with infection, we see sinusitis concomitant with many headaches due to the extreme pressure and congestion in the face and sinuses. For women, their hormonal cycle can have an effect on every aspect of how they feel, including the tendency toward monthly headaches and migraines. Finally, a major contributing factor to headaches are injuries to the head and brain concussions due to sports injury and other forms of trauma.
In our upcoming Health Inn Show, Monday June 11, 2012 we will discuss the many contributing factors and take a look at some homeopathic remedies that address a complex of symptoms.
