THE DRUG-FREE SOLUTION TO HEADACHES

by Miss Bliss

Darling Bliss Readers,

When I was in junior high school, I began developing horrible migraine headaches. This was not a surprise to me, as both my mother and grandmother suffered from frequent headaches. I quickly learned that if I did not take a painkiller before the headache was full-blown, I would get sick to my stomach and the only solution would be ice packs, darkness and sleep.

So, like my mother, I was prescribed a high dosage of Motrin (800mg) and began taking that or Ibuprophen every morning to avoid a potential headache later. Taking medication for the prevention of headaches became a norm for me.

In my early thirties, I became vegetarian and began researching natural health remedies. I slowly stopped using all headache medications and started a daily exercise routine. For awhile, the headaches seemed to be stopping.

At the time, I was attending UCLA graduate school full-time and was on the computer all day for the first time since college. By the end of work and class, I tended to have headaches. Since UCLA provided free health-care, I made an appointment with a doctor. Naturally, the doctor’s remedy was to give me a stronger painkiller than Motrin. I declined the prescription.

As I was leaving, the nurse who did my initial paperwork pulled me aside. “We’re not supposed to do this,” she said. “But I used to have terrible headaches and the solution was chiropractic.”

“Really,” I asked.

“Go to a chiropractor, sweetie. You won’t need any more painkillers.”

A friend recommended her chiropractor and I quickly learned the headaches I experienced were caused by the neck vertebra putting pressure on the nerves in the spinal chord. After a few adjustments, the headaches stopped.

Now, I only visit a chiropractor if I get a headache and those are rare.

Since I know the cause of the pain is in my neck, I have learned yoga stretches to stretch the neck muscles and realign the vertebra. Now, by stretching or by getting an amazing massage from my man, I can ease the pain myself. [Make sure to visit a chiropractor or yoga instructor before stretching your neck. The neck is fragile and you need to stretch it properly with supervision.]

So the next time you get a bad headache, reach for the phone instead of the medicine cabinet. Call a chiropractor and get healthy naturally!

Yeah, I have read something about that. I have read that headaches are mainly generated by 2 things. Either A, which is a lack of oxygen…or B, which is from the neck or spinal cord. Glad to hear you got it worked out. I know I personally try to avoid taking medications if I can.
