Have you ever heard someone say “Headaches are part of my life” or “I guess I just have to live with it”? That does not have to be the case.

There’s no such thing as a normal headache. A headache is a symptom, the body’s way of telling us that something is wrong. Headaches are caused by many different factors but the one that can be seen among all of them is stress

Stress comes in three types: chemical, physical, and emotional. All three can cause headaches. 

How exactly does stress cause headaches?
Stress, regardless of type, causes vertebral subluxations. Subluxations
prevent the nervous system from working properly and symptoms like
headache can result. Removing subluxations can relieve headaches without
the use of drugs.

Tension headaches are often described as if the forehead and temples are being squeezed or compressed.

Migraines are often described as presenting with pulsating and one-sided pain, light sensitivity, visual disturbances, and nausea. 

Hormonal headaches are often described like a migraine only they occur during menstruation, pregnancy, menopause, or use of birth control pills. 

We’re going to take a look at a number of common everyday things that may predispose or even cause someone to having headaches.

Studies have shown that the risk of migraine increases almost 40% in women with general or belly obesity, and 30% in men with belly obesity. Why?

It’s thought that pathways in the brain which regulates feeding also regulate migraines. Stimulation of the brain by overeating can therefore lead to headaches.

Many people reach for aspirin yet, are headaches caused by a lack of aspirin? Of course not. Aspirin may temporarily cover pain like other painkillers, but it is not a solution to the cause of the problem. When one relies on aspirin, headaches will return. 

Many aren’t aware that just a spoonful of NutraSweet or Equal is enough to induce a headache in some people. The active ingredient in these is aspartame and is found in many chewing gums as well. This acts as a chemical stressor upon the body, breaking down into a free-floating amino acid form, leading to headaches and dizziness. 

It is possible that sleeping on more than one pillow can leave you with a morning headache. Sleeping on more than one pillows straightens the normal curve in your neck. Subluxation, pressure on the brainstem, and headaches can result.

Reading with your book or tablet held below eye-level and looking down strains the cervical spine and headaches can develop.

The road to developing headaches later in life begins at the first subluxation everyone experiences, during one’s own birth. It is possible that a vacuum extraction and forceps delivery can be traumatic to a newborn’s cervical spine. Even normal birth causes subluxation. A chiropractic correction on day one of an infant’s life can help to restore resilience.  

Spinal subluxations prevent the nervous system, thus entire body, from working properly. Symptoms like headaches can result. Removing subluxation can relieve headaches without the use of drugs.
