While most of us have headaches every now and then, many people are plagued by them. Headaches can disrupt all aspects of your life — sleep, work, and your personal time with friends and family. Having headaches can certainly keep you from doing the things you love in life, but it can also serve as a clear indication that something is out of balance in your body.
Because there are many possible root causes for headaches, finding the definitive source of your headaches can be difficult, but we do know that they can often arise during periods of shifting hormones.
As you try to track down just what’s triggering your headaches, some may find that chronic stress may potentially be involved. Chronic stress can lead to an imbalance in your adrenal glands and cause fatigue-related headaches. If you think you might have adrenal imbalance, your headaches might arise with the onset of stress. They may also arise after the “low” that often follows a caffeine or sugar “high.” It’s extremely common for people with adrenal imbalance to get in the habit of using sugar and caffeine to spark the energy they need to get through the day. This vicious circle can leave the body depleted and cause headaches. Adrenal headaches may also come with other symptoms like light-headedness upon standing, fatigue, or salt cravings.
Rest assured, you can take natural steps to alleviate the headache burden on your body. This can help you feel significantly better — often so much better that you can continue your normal activities without missing a beat.
What you can do today
To move towards a headache-free future, your best first step is to buy a notebook and begin tracking your headaches.
Why it works
When you keep track of the details surrounding the onset of your headaches — time of day, foods you ate prior, stress level, and other lifestyle factors that might contribute, it can help narrow down the possible root cause of your headaches. That information will guide you to take proactive steps to relieve, and possibly prevent, headaches. We know that living life while you’re dealing with regular or persistent headaches can be an isolating and frustrating experience. But know that you are not powerless when it comes to headaches. With a little thought and attention, you’ll find a natural solution that will provide headache relief. Instead of reaching for ibuprofen or Excedrin the next time your headaches occur, try an approach that will help you get to the root cause of your headaches so you can get rid of them for good.
Whether your symptoms are linked to adrenal imbalance and stress or just chronic muscle tension, we can help you break free of your headaches and get back to your life. Keep in mind, however, that if you develop a serious and sudden headache that feels unbearable, you should check with your doctor right away, as this can be a sign of a serious health issue.
