Did you know a common side effect of most prescription medications is dehydration? Feeling dizzy or lightheaded? It’s probably those pharma medications that were made in a laboratory to cover up the symptoms of bad eating habits and lack of enough clean, filtered water. You may be surprised at the main causes of headaches, and you may be going about curing them all wrong.
Here are the top 7 causes of headaches
#1. Prescription medications- seriously look into the ingredients of what in the world is in them.
#2. Fluoride in tap water. opt for a water filter, here is a good one I am using with a decent price tag, Water Filter
#3. Artificial ingredients in foods
#4. Concentrated salts, including MSG, nitrates and nitrites
#5. Not drinking enough water: However, if you’re consuming several of the other headache causes on this list, you’ll need more.
#6. Deferred neck and back pain from bad posture and muscle abuse
#7. Aspirin, ibuprofen, acetaminophen, triptans, NSAID, plus most addictive pain relievers (opioid-based) etc…
Overuse of headache and pain relievers causes chronic, severe headaches
You’re probably asking “how” right now, as you wonder why the OTC medications you buy for headache relief literally cause headaches, right? One of the biggest medical problems ever perpetrated around the world is the “take one aspirin a day to prevent heart attacks and strokes” which is a lie. That’s a dangerous guessing game that some doctors play. There are NO good ‘candidates’ for aspirin therapy, and one major side effect is chronic, intolerable headaches from overuse (daily use).
Ever heard of rebound headaches? They come from overuse of pain medicine, which is running rampant in America and around the world, thanks to many MD’s bad advice and not looking into the many natural medicines alternatives instead opioids are being dished out for just about anything. As your pain reliever wears off, the headache returns even WORSE than it was before. Doctors know this because millions of patients complain about it. Got chronic migraines? It’s the medication you’re taking for chronic migraines that’s making it worse. It’s a sad truth that is not talked about enough even though this is a very important and crucial topic. Let that sink in for a minute.
Science and research have shown that nitrates and MSG increase the dilatation of your blood vessels, causing severe headaches and inflammation. Some prescription drugs for blood pressure literally contain nitrates, causing intolerable migraine headaches. The doctors all know this too, but can’t talk about it, and don’t want to, because they receive very large and illegal kickbacks, ‘spiffs’ and expensive gifts from the pharmaceutical distributors (shilling pharma reps).
Included are very controversial. Birth control pills, diet pills, menopause prescriptions and erection enhancement medications can all cause chronic and severe headaches, but again, when most docs prescribe most prescriptions, they won’t mention it. So why don’t we ask the side effects of taking these drugs? It is definitely worth taking some independent time and researching about all of this and seeking out natural alternatives, asking questions before taking anything that can be even more harmful in the long run.
Bad posture and muscle abuse
Most people have no clue that they have horrible posture throughout the day, including myself if I don’t catch it while sitting on a chair for hours on end, and even while walking, preparing food, and staring into our smart devices. Believe it or not, your head weighs around 10 to 12 pounds, and it’s supported by 20 muscles that get overworked and abused when you lean forward or over for extended periods of time.
Let’s take a look at ourselves right now. 🙂 Is our head tilted downward, even slightly? If so, your lower back is suffering. So are those 20 muscles that hold your head like that. Let’s try to remember to constantly stand up and take a few minutes to stretch our neck, back and muscles. Referred pain can trick you into thinking your headache has a different cause or source. Pay close attention to this. Natural Chiropractic care can be pivotal for curing chronic headaches and migraines. Start examining your posture at all times throughout the day. Taking computer breaks and stretching those muscles is a good idea for stiffness.
Natural cures for common headaches
Dehydration also fuels inflammation, especially when it comes to arthritis and joint pain increase. Wait, you didn’t know? Up to 80 percent of your joint cartilage consists of water, including the thick lubrication between the joints. Make sure you’re drinking clean, filtered water. Bottled water isn’t always the best idea, as it can contain BPA, PFA’s, fluoride and other chemical contaminants that drive headaches. A great, reliable gravity filter is a Berkey water filtration system for your home if possible or a good water filter that alkalizes your water. You can also test your ph in your water.
Thier can be different situations based on the person’s health, maybe it can be from needing glasses as well. But overall, for everyone a mayor change will Include your diet choices. As much as possible Go for whole organic foods vitamins, nutrition, minerals and anti-inflammatory herbs and spices which help to reduce headaches and inflammation such as turmeric. If suffering from chronic migraines visit a naturopathic physician and see if they can recommend more natural remedies over synthetic products.
I hope this article served as an informative “food for thought” and gave some insight on headaches and overall health. As with anything take the time to research as well. And take it one day at a time for your body to heal. ❤️
