Toledo, OH (PRWEB) September 23, 2014
September marks the arrival of fall weather right around the corner, but for many people, the change of seasons also brings with it a stream of recurring headaches.
“Weather changes are actually a common headache and migraine trigger for many people, causing them to suffer from aching pain on a recurring basis,” shared Dr. Jason Peisley, D.C., Founder and Clinic Director of Fairwood Chiropractic & Physical Therapy.
“For many headache sufferers, additional symptoms can even include severe chronic nasal congestion or throbbing in their facial areas, which is distressing. Our bodies are also adjusting to the new season, where our cardiovascular and circulatory systems may undergo additional changes, which can drastically worsen effects.”
Instead of reaching for the Advil or Tylenol this month or next, Dr. Peisley reminds headache sufferers that there are healthier alternatives to alleviate symptoms, such as the following all-natural solutions that you can do yourself:
1) Aromatherapy. Our breathing patterns can change along with new weather patterns. Oils such as lavender, peppermint and basil not only smell great, but they are also especially helpful for relieving headaches or migraines caused by tense or tight muscles, as they are naturally act as muscle relaxants.
2) Diet changes. One of the most effective natural solutions to reducing headache pains is to pay attention to what you are consuming and make changes accordingly. Certain foods and drinks will affect the severity of a headache or migraine, such as caffeine, chocolate and dairy. Being dehydrated is also another major trigger for severe headaches and can be easily fixed by drinking enough water or tea.
3) Scalp massages. There is no denying that a simple head rub feels good. People impulsively rub their temples when experiencing headaches or migraines, and in most cases, it works to alleviate tension, stimulate circulation and encourages mental relaxation. Place fingers from both hands on your forehead, resting your thumbs on your temples. Press lightly but firmly all around your forehead, shifting and releasing pressure accordingly.
“Chronic headaches usually stem from a variety of causes including misalignment of neck spinal bones, especially common when working on computers. This can affect muscles, nerves and blood supply to your head,” continued Dr. Peisley.
“The appropriate step for headache sufferers is to seek chiropractic treatment if their pain symptoms continue to escalate or become more frequent. Most severe headache pain is relieved when spinal and jaw problems are corrected by a chiropractor,” he concluded.
