Headache Prevention & Self-Care

How do you get rid of a headache? It’s something we have all dealt with, and something none of us enjoy. One of the first things we can do is to figure out what is causing them.

To do this try keeping a journal. Take note of the weather, what you ate, how you slept, your personal stress level. Also pay attention to things you didn’t do. Did you forget to work out or did you skip your morning coffee? If you have a group of foods that you suspect are triggering your headaches, cut them all out for a couple of days and add them back in one by one so you can determine what to avoid. Knowing these things and avoiding your personal triggers can help you to be headache free, but what do you do when you get one anyway?

Before you reach for the Advil, there are a few things you can do at home.
