Lack of sleep is one of the most common causes of headaches, while it is also bad for your
overall health in many different ways. It has been linked by studies, that lack of
proper sleep not only triggers headaches due to fatigue, but additionally it lowers the
pain threshold of your body. This means that the pain that you experience
is going to be much more vivid and will endure longer. Luckily, the solution to this particular headache
is as simple as getting a good sleep every night, being 7 to 9 hours, and try to make
this your routine. 2. Drink Water
Dehydration is a very serious condition when it is extreme, but many people experience
it without even noticing it. Most physicians will recommend that you consume
at least 3 liters of water, which is about 12 8-oz glasses daily. If you exercise often or if your job is physically
demanding, probably even more. This is good advice that many people do not
follow. If you consume less water, say 1.5 liters
per day, then slowly, your body will experience signs of dehydration, with one of the most
common being potent headaches. The solution, as you can guess, is very simple:
Drink water and keep your daily water intake at healthy levels. 3. Drink Tea and Coffee
Caffeine is a substance that, when used wisely, is extremely beneficial to your body. It provides an energy boost, alleviates the
negative effects of fatigue and constricts blood vessels. All the suggestions help you experience less
pain from your headaches and can be a key daily help in your struggle to overcome such
a problem. You should be careful though not to consume
too much caffeine, as it can be related with withdrawal symptoms that include headaches. It is best to find a good daily balance and
stick with it. 4. Reduce Alcohol Intake
Alcohol is a substance which is known to widen blood vessels, contrary to the effects of
caffeine. Thus, it lets blood flow more freely and increase
the frequency and potency of migraines and tension headaches, while at the same time
it is a diuretic. This means that you will get dehydrated and
this also might trigger a bad headache. The combination of these two side-effects
of alcohol is what leads to the dire headaches of a hangover which is an extreme case of
alcohol-caused headache. If you know that you are sensitive to headaches,
limiting your alcohol intake is one of the first things you need to do. 5. Magnesium
An often overlooked mineral, magnesium is vital in the regulation of blood pressure
and the proper function of our nervous system. Both of these functions of our body are closely
related with the frequency and severity of headaches. It has to be noted that Magnesium deficiency
is a common and little-known problem that many people have, so you would be wise to
try to enhance your daily intake. In order to do so, you can get oral supplements
or try to include good sources of magnesium in your diet, such as almonds, salmon, kale
and dark chocolate. 6. B Vitamins
The B-complex vitamins have been identified by numerous studies as crucial in the regulation
of the nervous system and the neurotransmitters of our brains. It is only natural that a deficiency of B-complex
vitamins causes a degeneration of these systems, leading to an increase in headaches, both
in terms of duration and frequency. It is important to consume sufficient quantities
of these vitamins through your diet and some of the most potent sources are leafy greens,
salmon, eggs, yoghurt and yeast. 7. Ginger
Ginger root is known to have potent anti-inflammatory properties, that can help in many types of
headaches, while it is also rich in many anti-oxidants and beneficial minerals for your nervous system
and cell regeneration. Drinking ginger tea frequently can be an effective
medication against headaches, as it has been cited by numerous sources and patients of
chronic migraines. If you can’t find easily fresh ginger root
where you live, most drug stores offer ginger capsules that can be as effective as the home-made
tea. 8. Cold Compress
An ancient but very effective way to relief headache pain is applying topically a cold
compress, something that can quickly, but usually not permanently, help you cope with
the condition. The sudden drop in temperature decreases the
inflammation and constricts your blood vessels, reducing almost immediately the pain that
you experience. It has to be noted though, that compresses
are not a viable, long-term solution, but more of a relief for extreme cases. Well, we hope that all these solutions will
help you cope with this common but dire problem. Through our experience, we believe that it
is best to apply multiples of these solutions and change your diet and lifestyle in order
to be completely free of headaches. Trying to simply fight them off only when
they appear might work, but in the long run won’t make any difference. Believe us, preventing a headache is much
easier than trying to cure one, especially if they are chronic and not related to a particular
illness that you might have. Don’t forget to give a thumbs up if you like
