National Headache Awareness Week

three things that could be a cause
by Dr. Alisha Moadab, N.D.

Dr_Alisha_MoadabHeadaches come in various forms, for some it’s a minor annoyance and others it can be debilitating. There are more than four different classifications for headaches. In mainstream medicine the common tool is the prescription pad for to help alleviate the pain, or in some cases to try to catch it before it starts. Neither of these options are looking at why someone is suffering in the first place. Here are three things that could be contributing to head pain:

1. Gluten-it’s a protein found in many grain products and processed foods. Many people fall on a spectrum of their bodies tolerance to it. For some avoiding gluten can dodge the pain, in their head, or in other places in their body.

2. Hormones-a woman’s monthly cycle and the timing of headaches if correlating at time of ovulation or menses could indicate that estrogen or progesterone can be off balance, and be part of the cause.

3. Posture-tension headaches in particular may start with trigger points in the back muscles. These muscles can get imbalanced with some being overused and others underused with improper posture either while standing or while working at the computer or desk for prolonged periods.

For the next week, try going gluten free, keep a diet and headache diary, if you’re a woman also write dates of ovulation and menstruation. Also be sure that your ears, shoulders, and hips are all in line, so that if someone were to be looking at you from the side the could connect these points in a straight line, this is the form for good posture. These tips may help with your headaches. Take this information to your Naturopathic and Integrative Doctor to help get to root cause!
