Hello sunshine!

When I was younger I struggled with headaches and my number one option was to take a pill. I did this to avoid feeling even worse and ready to go to bed. So yes, a pill was generally effective, but I had no clue of what was going on in my body. However, as I started understanding the causes of my headaches, as I explained in my book Back to NaturalI began to look for natural alternatives.

Today I can say that I no longer take pills for headaches, so I would like to share with you what I have learned in all these years.

1. Headaches and lack of hydration: do you drink enough water throughout the day? I am asking you this because dehydration can lead to headaches, so I always have water by my side. I bought a stainless steel flask and I take it everywhere.

2. Headaches and digestive issues: headaches might also be the result of something that I have eaten  In case this happens, I drink a chamomile tisane (but it can be other herb with digestive properties) and I feel much better after this. Food intolerances and improper food combining might also cause headaches, as I have written before.

3. Headaches and stress: when I was in college it was common to suffer from headaches after an exam, so I would go home, take a long shower and, of course, take a pill. I am glad things have changed. Now, whenever I feel stressed, I meditate for around twenty minutes and after this the headache is gone! Tapping can also be a good option.

4. Headaches and back, shoulders and neck pain: as I spend a long time working in front of the computer this leads to back pain and specially to tension in my neck and shoulders. So, what do I do? I try to get up from time to time, in order to move my body a bit, as well as rotate my neck clockwise and counterclockwise and move my shoulders up and down. A self-massage is also a good option, but better than this is to ask my boyfriend to give me a massage! Smart decision, right? Last, but not least, doing yoga regularly has shown to be really helpful.

It would be great if you could share your experiences with me!

 

Nurture yourself,

Natacha
