5 Ways to Manage Persistent Headaches

Life can throw you some hard-hitting curveballs, leaving you to neglect your health and overlooking the “common” headache you get once in a while, and actually might even be more than that. You often brush it off, masking the often fleeting but sometimes unbearable and constant unease with a painkiller, and hope for the best.

Headaches are one of the most common health problems, and they can get so bad that you’ll find yourself experiencing bouts of nausea and vomiting. Popping painkillers every time you have one can do more harm than good in the long run, and leave you in the wake of some nasty side effects.

Here are some more effective ways that are gentle on your body while helping you to manage persistent headaches.

1. Drink herbal tea

Green tea, chamomile tea, ginger tea, and peppermint tea are just some of the beverages known to be able to relieve migraines and some of their accompanying symptoms. Drinking them can help to ease your mind, and thus relieve the throbbing pain in your head.

Chamomile is packed with antioxidants, and together with its ability to calm anxiety and reduce inflammation, chamomile can help to lessen the impact of headaches. Ginger, too, has anti-inflammatory and pain relief properties, while peppermint has the ability to relax the nerves and reduce spasms in your gastrointestinal tract that can actually aggravate headache symptoms.

So if you find yourself frequently experiencing sudden and recurring migraine attacks, you can get yourself a cup of warm Nilufer Tea and let it work its magic. With quality herbs and fruits, the organic herbal tea will not only help ease your headaches, it can also confer a range health benefits for your body.

2. Go gluten-free

Many of us get headaches every now and then. But if you’re especially prone to them, you may have a gluten allergy, or even a celiac disease. So get yourself checked and take the necessary steps to cut gluten out of your diet. Common foods that contain gluten include wheat, oats, certain types of noodles, pancakes, waffles, and malt beverages.

3. Take B-complex vitamins

Various forms of vitamin Bs aid in the formation of neurotransmitters, like serotonin, which may be lacking in those who suffer from migraines. When your body is short on one or more of the essential B vitamins, it causes energy slumps, unfocused thinking, and headaches. As these vitamins are crucial in regenerating brain cells, and improving immune function and cardiovascular health, it isn't surprising then, that a lack of them can cause your body to feel less than optimal.

To help your body synthesise adequate amounts of vitamin Bs required for a more optimised body and mind, you should consume foods that are rich in B-complex vitamins. Such foods include rice, whole-wheat pasta, potatoes, eggs, chicken, fish, milk, and green leafy vegetables.

4. Keep active

Staying in one position for an extended period of time, like sitting in front of your computer hunched over, can lead to body tension and induce headaches. This position, with your head jutting out, puts an extra 20 to 30 pounds of pressure on your neck!

So to ease the immense strain you’re putting on yourself, try to take a break every 30 to 60 minutes. Stretch regularly and move your head and neck around in a circular motion. This will relieve the built up stress and can help prevent headaches.

5. Stay hydrated and well rested

The body is made up of around 70% of water. Hence, it is no wonder a feeling of unease wells up in the body when one is not properly hydrated. Consuming too much coffee, sugary drinks, and alcohol can leave us dehydrated and this is certainly one of the contributing factors that lead to a throbbing headache. Hydrating yourself with water may just be that simple (and free) remedy you need to keep you feeling full, energized and headache-free.

You can also quench your thirst with fruits and vegetables – watermelons, strawberries, cauliflower, and   spinach contain about 92 percent water per volume, and they may hydrate your body twice as effectively as a glass of water.

Having poor sleeping habits can also cause frequent headaches. Not getting enough shuteye and sleeping too long can trigger migraines. So get some proper rest and change up your hectic lifestyle, so you no longer have to suffer through each day!
