9 Foods That Will Help Your Headaches!

9 Foods That Will Help Your Headaches!

Those who suffer from frequent headaches no very well that they are incredibly hard to ignore. They ruin everything, from a good time out to reading a book, it's hard to enjoy yourself doing anything when your head is throbbing so bad you feel nauseated.

But before popping those pills over and over, we'd advise checking out some other reasons and solutions to the problem, such as making sure you are eating things that help your headache instead of making it worse!
1. Baked Potato

Baked potato can alleviate a headache, especially one caused by drinking alcohol. Since alcohol causes an increase in urine, it can cause dehydration and the loss of important electrolytes such as potassium. Eating foods rich in potassium can then ease hangover headaches. A potato with the peel is one of the best sources of this mineral, containing about 720 mg of potassium (to compare, a banana, also rich in potassium, contains about 460 mg).

2. Watermelon

As we said above, dehydration is one of the leading reasons for headaches, so before you take that pill, consider eating foods rich in water, such as the watermelon. There are many fruit and vegetables rich in water and some also contain important minerals such as magnesium, which is considered as an aid against headaches.




3. Coffee

Yes, coffee. The brown liquid we all drink to make it through the day has long since been considered a great folk medicine against headaches. Many headache pills contain caffeine. The secret, however, is moderation. While alcohol makes the blood vessels in our body and head expand, coffee does the opposite, by shrinking them. This way, it can reduce the amount of pain we feel. However, if you drink too much caffeine, you will increase the amount of urine and we're back to dehydration, which in turn will cause more headaches.
So, drink a cup of coffee, no more, or add a cup of water as well.

4. Whole Wheat Bread

People on a diet low in carbohydrates may suffer from frequent headaches, since this kind of diet decreases the body's store of glycogen, which are a main source of energy for the brain. This way, the body loses liquid and gets dehydrated, and then - headaches.
Consider adding some comple carbs to your diet, like those in whole wheat, fruit or yogurt. It may also improve your mood, since it makes the body release serotonin.

5. Almonds

Research shows that the magnesium in almonds may protect the body from headaches by releasing the blood vessels. For those who suffer from migraines, a diet rich in magnesium may bring about great relief. To increase your intake of magnesium, try to consume almonds, bananas, avocado, whole rice etc.



6. Spicy Salsa

This may sound weird, but spicy foods like spicy salsa or hot peppers can help you get rid of that headache that much faster. The question is - what caused the pain. These foods are great at solving pain related to your sinuses. The spicy foods will open the breathingways, which will alleviate the headache.

7. Yogurt

When your head feels like it is aching in a fast throb, it may be your body trying to tell you that it needs calcium to function efficiently. Make sure you have calcium rich foods as part of your diet, like regular greek yogurt with no fat, which is an excellent source of calcium, without any extra fat and sugars with with helpful probiotics.

8. Sesame Seeds

The tiny sesame seeds contain a large amount of vitamin E, which may help stabalize estrogen levels in women and so prevent migrains. Along the fact that it helps with headaches, it may also help with blood circulation. They are also rich in magnesium.



9. Spinach

What works for popeye can work for you as well. Spinach has been proven to reduce blood pressure and deal with hangovers. So if your head is a-throbbing, consider a big salad, and instead of lettuce, use spinach.

Stay well! more
