Headaches and migraines can be a major setback for many people. Sometimes they make it harder to focus, and other times you may feel unable to get anything done at all. Whether you struggle with chronic migraines, or occasional headaches, there are natural treatments that provide relief. Homeopathic solutions are an amazing choice for individuals looking to avoid pain killers and heal their bodies at the source. Here are some of our top tips for treating headaches naturally.
Increase Your Magnesium Intake
Studies have shown that low levels of magnesium are linked to chronic headaches. Magnesium is found in foods like spinach, pumpkin seeds, black beans, quinoa, brown rice, flax seeds, dark chocolate, avocado, and bananas. Alongside a balanced diet, make sure you’re eating routinely throughout the day and adding a dose of magnesium-rich foods to your diet. Headaches are a common side effect of nutrient deficiency or dehydration, so make sure you take extra care of your body when you feel under the weather.
Drink Warm Ginger Tea
Ginger has been studied for its immune, anti-inflammatory, and anti-nausea properties. But did you know that it’s also linked to headache pain relief? Drinking ginger tea regularly throughout the day is a great way to promote overall health and soothe headaches when they arise. Ginger tea can be steeped from a pre-made bag, or you can simply add a few pieces of fresh ginger to warm water.
Use Essential Oils
If you can’t diffuse essential oils in your office, keep a roller ball with you on the go. Scents like peppermint, rosemary, eucalyptus, and chamomile are soothing for aromatherapy or topical massage. Rub the oils on your temples, neck, and palm of your hands. Take a few deep breathes to receive all the benefits of relaxation and tension relief.
Take Breaks from Blue Light
Many people today are on their phones, computer, television, or electronic device for hours of the day. If you work behind a computer, wear blue light glasses to relieve eye strain that can lead to headaches. Take a walk around the office every hour to give your mind a break and get your blood pumping. Small breaks from blue light are enough to help you reset and prevent tension headaches from creeping in during the afternoon.
Practice Yoga and Light Movement
If you live a sedentary life, your brain may not be getting the blood circulation it needs. Give yourself 5-10 minutes to perform a gentle movement practice. Try a few rounds of child’s pose and cat cow to help your body relax, release endorphins, and feel grounded again. Movement is a natural healer that can release tension, stress, and muscle stiffness that induces painful headaches.
