Headaches often come out of nowhere and can make it hard to work or be happy. We usually grab a pain reliever almost right away so we can save time and get back to work as soon as possible. Every short-cut has a downside, and long-term use of painkillers could cause heart problems, damage to the liver, and a number of digestive problems. So if you are taking this short cut, you should stop right away and look for natural ways to get rid of your headache.
I don’t think you should take any additional pain medication because of your headache. Instead of covering up your symptoms with drugs that often do more harm than good, figure out why you’re getting headaches and stop them from happening. Headaches happen sometimes and are usually caused by not drinking enough water, muscle tension, junk light, stress, and not getting enough sleep “Tim Gray, a health-improving biohacker, psychologist, entrepreneur, and speaker all over the world, says this. Here are 5 easy ways to get rid of that annoying headache without taking medicine.
If you have a headache, drinking water is the best thing you can do for it. But getting water isn’t the only way to stay hydrated. In fact, flushing your electrolytes down the toilet when you drink tap water or water with few minerals can make you feel thirsty. You also need sodium, potassium, magnesium, and calcium, in addition to water. Adding a pinch of Celtic Sea Salt to your water, drinking mineral water, or using an electrolyte drink is the best way to get them.
2. TAKE CARE OF YOUR POSTURE
When you slouch at your desk and look down at your device, your upper back and neck get a lot of stress and tension, which can lead to tension headaches. Stretching, foam rolling, and massaging your pressure points can help relieve your headache in a big way.
3. OPEN A WINDOW
A stuffy room with too little oxygen and too much carbon dioxide can make you tired, give you headaches, make it hard to focus, etc. Open a window to let fresh air into your room.
4. ELIMINATE TRASH LIGHT
The fact that fluorescent lights or LEDs that flicker are used in offices is a big problem. This light has a flicker that the human eye can’t see, and the flicker itself is a migraine trigger. If you can, turn off and remove any LED or fluorescent lights and replace them with incandescent or halogen bulbs.
5. GET OUT
Taking a break from what you’re doing and going outside for some fresh air, sunshine, and movement can do wonders for your stress, mood, inflammation, and headache.
With these simple adjustments, you may eliminate the majority of your problems. However, if you have frequent headaches or migraines, there is probably a more complicated problem at the root that needs to be looked into and fixed.
