Headaches relief odds shift in your favor when you trace down their ‘shifty’ background.
One of the more annoying symptoms of stress, they yet challenge us to get on with life, forcing us to grin and bear them while we pull off our daily routine in spite of them.
Perhaps, like most, you’ve experienced them, non-chronically, if occasionally, your entire life.
Then again, your headaches may seem worse than the average person experiences, even to migraine levels.
And, with all the “remedies” merely offering relief (which is very temporary indeed), headaches seem like a normal condition of life.
But do we really have to live with them? Are they a permanent fixture in our lives which come on unpredictably with no rhyme or reason?
Can we only find a bit of relief with no hope of riddance?
Though it may seem so, digging into several origins of these unwelcome invaders reveals not only a shifty background, but a chance to take control of the very reasons they happen, and, therefore, possibly prevent them altogether.
Where do headaches come from?
With a wealth of knowledge available via even the lightest search online, you would think headaches are all but solved. Reported “causes” abound.
But, why, with all these apparent origins, are headaches still one of the most common symptoms people experience?
Before understanding where headaches come from, we need to understand the difference between actual causes, and things that trigger them.
A cause would be an actual imbalance. Something that, to function normally, works one way but is malfunctioning would constitute an imbalance.
This is not unlike having an engine that won’t run because of a bad spark plug. That engine could be said to have an “imbalance” of sorts. It is no longer a working engine because of an imbalance of cylinder firing.
Conversely, “triggers”, though important, are secondary.
In our example of a the malfunctioning vehicle, the bad plug is the imbalance but the trigger may have been something else that shorted it out. It is the cause of the imbalance.
So triggers and imbalances work hand-in-hand. But changing the trigger doesn’t necessarily fix the imbalance. It will merely ensure it will not happen again. Clearly both are important.
Even if you correct the short that caused the bad spark plug, you must replace it before the engine will run again.
Headaches have triggers most certainly, but those cause imbalances. Both must be addressed.
What are they?
The answer may surprise you. Let’s look at a few triggers and the imbalances they cause…
What do you get when you confuse causes with triggers? Probably a headache!
Admittedly, it is a little difficult to “get your head around” the fact that the cause itself has a cause and that both must be addressed.
But when you consider the actual symptoms, the imbalances that cause them and the environmental triggers that set them off, it becomes rather elementary.
This is not to imply people do not have real headache issues, sometimes unsolved. We’re merely looking at the most common symptoms of the majority of “regular” headaches people get and how to change the things that may be triggering and causing them.
For instance, many people attribute back, neck and shoulder pain and, yes, even headaches, to sitting at a desk all day or in an uncomfortable chair. While the desk, chair and sitting position do have something to do with these symptoms, these are merely triggers. The problem is an imbalance that already exists for the symptom to occur in the first place.
Imbalances in the basic structure (such as the spine, arches of the feet, etc) create a predisposition while the environmental factors trigger the actual problem. If you think about it carefully, it is easy to see that both factors would need to be addressed.
Getting a better chair without fixing the imbalance that caused the problem would be of limited use. Correcting the imbalance AND the chair would create a more permanent solution.
Rather than living with it, merely relieving it on occasion, one possibly could be rid of it for good in such a case.
What are the most common imbalances and their triggers?
Structurally, when the basic frame is off, the rest of the body tends to follow. Gravity alone pulls on the body which, in perfect posture, can take the pressure. But when the structure becomes weakened and displaced, posture is affected and gravity exploits it making it worse.
So can a bad office chair, a long commute, strenuous activity or exercise. These are all triggers which aggravate the imbalances.
In a sort of chain reaction, nerves get irritated, muscles contract and so goes the vicious cycle that is everyday life for many people.
Depleting mineral levels, especially calcium and magnesium, can be basic causes of headaches.
From blood pressure to muscle contraction and relaxation, these minerals fuel a host of body processes (literally hundreds of them), and in their deficiency things can go very wrong. The chain reaction can very often end up in a headache.
Again, there are triggers to be found. Why would there be a deficiency in the first place?
Many medications cause a depletion of one or another of these minerals and even articficial sweeteners, drugs, food preservatives and a myriad of others. Additionally, soil depletion can make the mineral-rich foods eaten less-than-effective and requiring supplementation. Then again, simply poor diet could be to blame.
In any case, just fixing the cause is not enough. Trigger and cause must be simultaneously addressed. Anything less provides relief at best and frustration to boot!
What can you do about headaches?
First and foremost, you can resolve to isolate the cause (or causes – there can be several).
This is the most important step in any event and can be done through better self-awareness and even the help of a professional expert in nutrition or a structural specialist such as a chiropractor.
As for the minerals calcium and magnesium, these are most often found in deficiency as one of the key factors involved, even in situations where some consider they are “getting enough” through diet or supplementation.
The body’s requirements are very precise as to the amounts, ratio, forms and combinations of these two most vital minerals. In absence of ANY ONE of these requirements, the body may reject them altogether and not use a single milligram.
