Change your lifestyle to improve migraines

By BY DR. ADDISON BULOSAN - | Nov 6, 2020

Migraines manifest as persistent pain in the head and photosensitivity. Several studies suggest that lifestyle changes can reduce the frequency and severity of migraines.

The following lifestyle changes can help you experience long-lasting relief from migraines.

Avoid Stress — Stress triggers migraines. Relaxation, exercises, practicing time management, and maintaining a positive attitude can eliminate stress.

Sleep — Researchers suggest that your health can improve if you get eight hours of sleep. Inadequate sleep causes fluctuations and changes in some hormones linked to migraines.

Avoid Sensitive Environments — Environmental factors play a huge role in triggering migraines. Some migraine sufferers, for example, experience migraines when exposed to sound and light. Condition your environment to suit your needs.

Eat a Healthy Diet — Some foods are high in chemicals that cause inflammation and can trigger migraines. Caffeine, spicy food and cigarettes are a few examples. To get migraine relief, eat foods that have anti-inflammatory properties.

Exercise — Exercises reduce the frequency of migraine attacks. Exercise promotes the release of “happiness” hormones, such as dopamine and endorphins. This reduces nerve irritation that causes migraine pains.

Chiropractic Care — Frequent visits to the upper cervical chiropractor’s office can help address the root cause of migraines.

After administering nerve tests, the upper cervical chiropractor will provide a chiropractic adjustment and various care types. This will correct any upper cervical injuries and stop the inflammation that triggers migraine attacks.
