Whether you’re on your period or you’re just a little stressed out, headaches are one of the most common occurrences out there. Our holistic medicine at Mahima is the perfect natural headache remedy for any headache your experience, no matter the time of day.
1. Essential Oils
This is one of our favorite methods for overall wellness and stability. Not only do we use essential oils on your skin in a lot of our massages, but we highly encourage everyone who visits our office to incorporate them into their everyday lives. Essential oils can come in supplemental form or in liquid form, and they are very concentrated with the aroma and properties from each plant that the oils are derived from.
We believe in the therapeutic nature of essential oils, and we recommend using them for many different ailments, such as headaches. Lavender and peppermint oil are especially great for this, but browse our online shop to find which essential oils best suits your symptoms.
Although it may look scary, acupuncture is one of the most tried and true methods of holistic medicine, and it’s a great natural headache remedy. Acupuncture aims to stimulate specific points in your body by inserting thin needles into your skin, and it is believed to be a relaxation method that originated in traditional Chinese medicine.
There’s a reason why we swear by acupuncture, as frightening as it may seem. Several scientific studies have found that regularly getting acupuncture can treat chronic migraines as effectively as certain medications, so if you’ve tried everything for your constant headaches but have found no relief, we encourage you to try this natural headache remedy that’s been around for centuries.
3. Elimination Diet
Because certain foods can be the source of headaches, many people find that an elimination diet helps them figure out what food is specifically causing headaches. The culprits of your headache are most likely coffee, alcohol, aged cheese, chocolate, and even citrus fruits.
If you try taking these one at a time out of your diet, you can see which one (or possibly even a different food) might be causing those annoying headaches. We highly recommend our food consultation to aid you in this elimination diet. This way, you can have someone give you more information about food and how it affects your body specifically.
It’s no secret that yoga is relaxing, and practically every movie and TV show agrees. Yoga therapy is yet another natural headache remedy as old as time in holistic medicine, and we truly believe in its healing properties because it can balance your mind and relieve your stress.
Practicing yoga can actually decrease how often you experience headaches in the first place, and it can drastically help your symptoms, so don’t be afraid to hit up your local gym and try it out!
We agree that you should take your vitamins every day, but we also want to encourage you to look into specific vitamins that may help out your headaches even more than your average multivitamin gummy.
Because B-vitamins help your body with neurotransmitter synthesis, consuming B-vitamin supplements can reduce your symptoms in a safe, natural way for your body. B-complex vitamins have all of the B-vitamins that we recommend, and you can take them regularly.
