There is quite a list of potential root causes to headaches and migraines. But 85% of all headaches are a result of dehydration. So the first thing you want to do is rule out dehydration as the cause.
In 2008 I had a headache that lasted for 6 months. I was drinking plenty of water! But drinking water alone is not enough to hydrate the body. Water without essential sodium and minerals will NOT ABSORB into the cells. Your body MUST HAVE unrefined sea salt to absorb water and other synergistic nutrients.
How To Rule Out Dehydration
After much research I started adding unrefined sea salt to my drinking water several times a day. About a week later my 6 month long headache was gone. (1/4 tsp unrefined sea salt per quart of clean water)
Now whenever I get one of those headaches (usually dehydration is a forehead or over the eyes headache), I drink my water with unrefined sea salt several times a day and it goes away.
Other Common Causes of Headaches (once you rule out dehydration)
- Liver gallbladder congestion (referred pain)
- Neck misalignment or head/neck injury
- Mineral deficiencies
- Ovary imbalances
- Sinus congestion
- Sinus fungus
- Hang overs
- Emotional/mental conflict
All the best to your health!
