Headache in bed migraine

Headache? Migraine?

Painkillers are not a long-term solution!

How many people take painkillers for headaches? Many tell us in our consultations that they are affected by headaches.  What can I do against it? And how about migraines?


From our experience we know that it is very important to understand what type of headache it is. Quite a lot of people classify migraines as tension headaches. Others think it's just from a sore throat and neck and end up with migraines. Around 18% of women and 6% of men suffer from migraines. Migraine is defined as pulsating and usually painful on one side. It is often accompanied by additional symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, sensitivity to light (photophobia) or sensitivity to noise (phonophobia).


You already know that you want to drink at least 35 ml/kg of body weight of pure water (non-carbonated) every day and of course you will do so. Also take care of the digestive system and avoid caffeine like coffee, cola, black tea and so on. A balanced, healthy diet is a matter of course for you and, logically, you don't smoke either. If you have ruled out these factors and you still have headaches, especially at night and in the morning, then it could be related to your sleeping and lying habits. Ever thought about it? Probably not. The nice thing is that a lot of people have been helped to leave their headaches behind. Whether you belong to these people, I can't tell you yet.  


Tip: pull out all the stops

Generally think holistically when lying down. Especially with headaches and migraines, the causes are often multifactorial and therefore you should combine everything, I really mean everything, in parallel, whatever is possible. It has helped many just to do a few things at the same time. This is because the lever for breaking out of the vicious circle is much greater and the change more effective. Very important: be patient and stay tuned.
