Most of us have had the occasional headache. In fact, up to 75 percent of people between the ages of 18 and 65 reported having a headache over a year’s time. When a headache strikes, you may run through your usual routine: Turn out the lights, lie down and pop a pain pill. But did you know that certain foods may ease, and even prevent, headaches?
Some causes of headaches include the following;stress, alcohol consumption, changes in the weather, changes in sleeping habits, dehydration, e.t.c.
Some of these foods that helps in the prevention and relief of headaches are as follows:
- Watermelon: Dehydration is a major cause of headaches. It’s always important to drink water, but eating fruits and veggies like watermelon, cucumber, celery and carrots, which have a high water content, can help contribute to your staying hydrated all day.So instead of popping a pain pill next time your head throbs, consider reaching for water-rich foods . "The natural water contained in both fruits and vegetables contains essential minerals, like magnesium, that are key in headache prevention and relief. Here are a few of my favorite foods loaded with migraine-fighting power.
- Ginger: This spicy root may have the ability to block prostaglandins (neurotransmitters that play a role in inflammation), which cause a slight swelling of your brain that may be the source of your discomfort. Not only has this spice been found to fight migraines, but it also may help relieve nausea, which commonly goes hand in hand with debilitating headaches.
- Mackerel: This is high in omega-3 fatty acids, essential fatty acids known to be healthy fats due to their anti-inflammatory and nerve-protecting actions. Research shows intake of these fats can reduce the frequency, duration and severity of headaches and migraines. If mackerel isn’t your favorite swimmer, these fatty acids can be found in other oily fish, such as salmon or sardines.
- Plain Yoghurt: Yogurt offers high levels of riboflavin, a part of the B vitamin complex that has been shown to help reduce the number of migraine attacks in people who commonly suffer from them. It may also help increase the effectiveness of beta-blockers, drugs used to prevent migraines. If yogurt isn’t your breakfast of choice, eggs also provide this B vitamin.
- Spinach:Leafy greens are high in magnesium, a nutrient that has been found to have powerful migraine-relieving properties. Spinach in particular will provide you with 24 milligrams in just one cup.
