Posted on Nov 01, 2016 by Jenna Crookshanks
“Not now, I have a headache.” How many times do you think you’ve either said or heard that very phrase? Headaches; we wake up with them, we go to bed with them, they occur randomly throughout the day and fall somewhere on the spectrum of a dull annoyance to completely debilitating.
Headaches and migraines are one of the most common health conditions in the world. It is reported that an estimated 26 million Americans experience them regularly, of which eighty percent are women. So, are we just destined to live with headaches and migraines?
In order to answer that question, it is important to understand the cause of headaches and migraines. There is a wide range of factors that can play a role in the number of, and severity of, the aforementioned problem. Anything from poor diet, lack of sleep, stress, hormonal changes, dehydration, emotional surges, and environmental toxins – the list is practically endless. How does someone determine specifically what is causing their headaches or migraines with so many variants?
A headache or a migraine is merely a symptom of something else that is going on in your body. At Nutrition Works, we use Nutrition Response Testing® to determine exactly what your body needs to heal and repair whatever the root of your headaches or migraines is. Remember, the pain and discomfort is your body’s way of saying something is off; the headache or migraine is a symptom. Finding out what your body is telling you through the non-invasive testing we use, along with diet and lifestyle changes, can help you eliminate headaches from the equation of how you feel on a regular basis.
