Get Your Headache to Hit the Road


Headaches are scary things. Considering your head is the home of your brain, it is not such a stretch to believe that people often worry when they get headaches. Well, they worry after the agonizing pain is gone. Ranking high on the list of most excruciating body pains – up there with a sore throat and kidney stones – headaches are not fun stuff at all. They can be downright debilitating, rendering the individual, immobile, unable to see and unable to function in any normal capacity. Moderate headaches are very common and their big brother, the migraine is not something you ever want to experience if you never have before.  


There are many causes for headaches, some are serious and others are mild and easily treatable. Some of the most common factors that contribute to the onset of a headache are – stress, long, uninterrupted work hours, allergens (food and otherwise), dehydration, oxygen deprivation and sleep deprivation just to name a few. Some headaches can be cured with small dosages of painkillers or natural supplements that can be found on websites like PureFormulas.com. Some don’t even require the help of painkillers and just require a change of breathing pattern and maybe a tall glass of water to rehydrate your body. Whatever the reason for your headache, if it persists beyond normal, natural remedies, please have a visit with your doctor as the headache may be an indication of something more serious.
