What Are You Eating And Drinking?

When thinking about headaches and headache relief, it’s often quite valuable to consider what you’re putting into your body everyday. Even if the main cause of your headaches is bruxism or some other oral concern, food and beverages may still contribute to pain. Consider the following changes you may want to make:

  • Relaxants and stimulants may contribute to headaches (such as alcohol or coffee). Many individuals suffer from headaches due to red wine. Switch to water to see if it makes a difference.
  • Take a look at what you’re eating. Are you eating a diet that consists of fresh, whole foods? Or, are you consuming a lot of products with ingredients you cannot pronounce? Steer clear of highly processed foods to see if it helps.

Are You Well Rested?

Are you exhausted? When you’re not getting enough sleep, the chance of headaches greatly increases. Make changes to your daily life, your sleeping environment, or your schedule to achieve consistent sleep for headache relief and overall health.

Are You Treating Your Body Well?

Do you notice that headaches often come on as the result of stress? When you’ve been sitting at your computer for a long time? Make sure you’re exercising, finding ways to relieve stress, and that you use an ergonomic workstation to take stress off of your muscles. Headache relief is often as simple as maintaining a healthy body.
