Re: Makeup causing headaches an nausea?The term migraine refers to a class of recurring headaches sharing certain characteristic symptoms: headache pain to the forehead or temples, often on one side and typically accompanied by nausea and sensitivity to light, the headache lasts several hours, sometimes the patient has an aura – a disturbance to vision, smell, taste or hearing that precedes the headaches. Migraines occur with and without auras.
Migraine occurrence can often be traced to a traumatic incident like a whiplash, a fall, or injury. Spinal bones out of alignment can create pressure on the brain stem that injures the nerves of the head and neck. Structural correction relieves that pressure.
Hormonal shifts can precipitate or get rid of them. Hormone balancing can help. Naturopathy, acupuncture and homeopathy are useful for this purpose as well having an overall beneficial effect to balance the body’s energy and chemistry.
Migraines are neurovascular events. They occur due to some faulty connections of nerves that cause adverse opening and closing of the blood vessels in the brain. Many pharmaceutical drugs have been developed to relieve the pain of migraines but none have stopped the reason for the headache. To change the headache, you need to get to the underlying cause and resolve it.
Foods that Trigger Migraines/Headaches:
Yogurt, Nuts (peanut butter,etc.), Ages or Cured Meat, Canned meat, Caffeine, Canned Soup, MSG, Chocolate, Buttermilk or sour cream, Meat tenderizer, Brewer’s yeast, Avocados, Onions, Pickles, Red Plums, Sauerkraut, Snow Peas, Soy Sauce, Alcohol (especially red wine).
Prolonged Stress, Dehydration, Poor air (Smokey, polluted), Visual stimulation (quickly changing patterns), Heat exposure, Lack of sleep
Healthy tips for dealing with your migraine when it occurs:
Lie in a quiet, darkened room with no interruption. When you feel the headache coming on, put a hot pack on your neck. As the headache advances to the extremely painful part, put a cold pack on your neck. Caffeine drinks may help (coke, coffee, tea, others). Excedrin Migraine (contents caffeine) may help.
