Where is the bottle of painkiller?  In college, some girls were regularly taking Excedrin for headaches.

It’s not normal to have constant headaches; neither is it normal to be eating Excedrin like candy!

It’s important to stop to know why you are in pain and not just to take a pain pill. 

Here are some causes of headaches:

  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Fear
  • Worry
  • Anger
  • Exhaustion
  • Toxic air
  • Lack of sleep
  • Allergies

For long-term relief of your headaches, consider the following:

1.  Be knowledgeable about what you put into your body.

Year ago, some of my extended family members would want to eat at a Chinese buffet to save time cooking for birthdays and other family gatherings.  After each time I ate Chinese, my head would hurt.  Only years later did I learn that it was from the MSG added to the food.

Caffeine dehydrates you and also causes stress.  Stress can certainly cause headaches.

In addition, if your body is sensitive to caffeine, even a small amount of caffeine can give you a headache.

2.  Drink more water.

Often headaches are caused by dehydration as well as toxins in the body.  Increase your intake of pure water (not from the tap) and feel the difference in your health.

 3.  Check your eyesight.

Poor eyesight can cause headaches. When was the last time you visited the optometrist?   Go here to learn how to improve your eyesight naturally.

4.  Remove toxic fragrances from your home.

This includes fragrances in laundry detergents, most candles, air fresheners, cleaners, dryer sheets have toxic chemicals in them. 

I cannot walk by the cleaning supplies or candle aisles in the stores unless I hold my breath.  Otherwise, I will get a headache. 

The same is for laundromats.  Being outside nearby (even several doors down from one) can give me a headache within seconds.

 5.  Improve your posture. 

When I was young, I was teased endlessly about being tall.  Therefore, I slouched.  Your posture can have an effect on your headaches.  Remember to sit up straight and tall with both feet on the floor.

Pain in your neck from poor posture can cause pain in your head as well.

If your headaches are not going away or turning into migraines, you need to see a medical professional because your headaches may be symptoms of much greater health concerns.
