Everyone gets headaches from time to time, but chronic migraine headaches can be a debilitating condition. They can often impede with sleep, work, and just enjoying daily life. Fortunately, we offer a natural and holistic approach to headache treatment that can provide relief. Those of us in the myofascial pain professional community recognize that myofascial pain is the root cause in 90% of all headaches. The pain is actually the result of knotted muscles in the scalp, shoulders, neck, jaw and upper back that transfer pain to the head and face. Massage can fortunately provide great relief.

Natural Treatments for Headache
Fortunately, there are several remedies you can try at home to relieve headache.
Headaches are often the result of dehydration. A lack of water also causes confusion and irritability, which can further exacerbate a headache. Drink plenty of water. Relief can come in 30 minutes to a couple of hours.
Keep a bottle or glass of water on hand. Filtered water has a better flavor, making it easier to greater amounts. Consider flavoring the water with lemon or lime juice to encourage consumption.
Taking magnesium supplements can also help. A natural mineral in the body, magnesium has been shown to be a safe and effective headache remedy. A lack of it can lead to low blood sugar, nerve transmission, and irritability.
Limit alcohol. Studies have shown that drinking alcohol can cause migraines in a third of drinkers, even in low amounts.
