Headaches are one most thing that hinders the active state and daily life performance. Chemical activity in your brain, the nerves or blood vessels surrounding your skull, or the muscles of your head and neck (or some combination of these factors) can play a vital role in most of the common headaches.
Before we look into the remedies for headaches we have to look into the factors that trigger or affect the imbalance and functioning of the cortical structures.
1. Food: preserved food and foods that contain MSG or nitrate such as sausage, hotdogs, bacon
2. Stress: stress harms sleep, excessive stress affects the sleep state
3. Posture: poor posture affects or disrupts the blood supply to the cortical structures
4. Routine: when daily life routine is suddenly changed chances of getting a migraine is more
5. Sleep: improper sleep cycle or fair quality of sleep
Natural remedies are a drug-free way to reduce migraine symptoms. These at-home treatments may help prevent migraines or at least help reduce their severity and duration.
