I’m not a big fan of bumper stickers.  I find it odd that people want to display their political sentiments on a used Honda for the world to see.  I find it annoying to have to stare at hateful words about our President at the stoplight in front of the grocery store.  And I’m amazed so many people put stick-figure families on their mini-vans to display how many people and pets live in their households.  Yes, yes. Michael plays soccer.  You have a cat.  Riveting stuff.

My own daughter asked that her school name be displayed on the back of our Chevy Tahoe.  But do you think given my poor driving and bad texting habit I want to announce what school we’re affiliated with and have people stare into the car from afar to see if they know me? You don’t know me.  I’m likely to run into you from…

Battling Chronic Headaches? Understanding Migraine, Tension, Cluster and Sinus Headaches. Maximized Living Maximized Living Blog.

 

Headache disorders are extraordinarily common, yet very few population-based studies exist in spite of the high rates of occurrence in developing countries.  This lack of statistics is due to limited funding and large, often rural populations.  Fortunately, headaches can be significantly reduced through improved lifestyle factors like diet, exercise and stress reduction.

In developed countries, Tension Type Headache (TTH) can affect up to two-thirds of adult males and more than 80 percent of females. Statistics show about 3,000 migraine attacks occur every day per million people and as many as 1 in 20 adults has a headache nearly every day.


What are the types of headaches?

The most frequent types of headaches are migraines, tension and sinus. The symptoms of the headaches differ based on the individual and the unique causative triggers.  The goal should not be limited to treating headaches but preventing them through a proactive approach.

Migraines are common in adults and teenagers.   Symptoms include severe pain either on one or both sides of the head which moves from one area of the skull to another. Migraines are commonly grouped with a series of other symptoms as well.  One can experience an upset stomach, sensitivity to light, sensitivity to sound and moodiness.

The most common form of headache is the Tension Type Headache.  Pain associated with this type of headache commonly extends into the neck, shoulders and the middle of the back.  Poor posture, abnormal sleeping positions, past/current injuries and significant stress levels can all contribute to tension headaches.

Sinus headaches commonly affect individuals during weather changes and seasonal allergen exposure. Sinus headaches are caused by pressure in the nasal passages that can cause fever, eye strain and coughing. The pain is continuous and is commonly mistaken for a migraine type headache.

A cluster headache is the least common – but most severe – type of primary headache.  The intensity of this headache is very high and can be described as a burning or piercing pain.  This constant pain is located behind one eye or in the eye region.  Cluster headaches usually occur at a specific time of day and recur one to three times in a predictable pattern.

Associated Risk Factors Found

Hormonal changes are a common cause of headaches in women. The physical, chemical and emotional stress of puberty, monthly menstrual cycles, pregnancies and menopause require constant hormonal fluctuations throughout life.  Even minor imbalances can be a cause of headaches.

Headaches can also be triggered by specific environmental factors such as exposure to secondhand smoke, fumes from household cleaners, perfumes, exposure to certain allergens and even eating certain foods. Stress, pollution, noise and certain types of lighting are other environmental factors that can trigger headaches.

What Causes Headaches?

Most of the causes of headaches are part of our everyday lives.  The secret to treatment and prevention is to improve how your body is able to respond to the onslaught of triggers.  This improved response can be achieved through dietary factors, quality exercise, stress reduction, proper sleep and adequate hydration levels.

Exercise has been deemed one of the best ways to improve how your body responds to stress.  Engaging in an exercise programme will improve neurology and circulation while reducing the damaging effects of stress.  Exercise helps balance hormones, encourage weight loss and aide in detoxification.

Chiropractic care provides a safe, proven method to help naturally relieve all types of headaches. A study conducted by the Duke University Evidence-based Practice Center evaluated the effects of different types of treatments (medicinal drugs, acupuncture, deep-tissue massage, chiropractic care, etc.) on headaches. The researchers found that cervical spinal manipulation—chiropractic neck adjustment—immediately improved the severity of headaches. Even more telling, continual adjustments were the best option for reducing headaches over an extended period of time.

Chiropractic can lessen pain right now and reduce the frequency of headaches over an extended period of time.

Being Kind to ourselves – is creating a healthy body and mind!

Thoughts on Theatre

We’re all guilty of it. Self-sabotage is one of the easiest games in the book. We reprimand ourselves for embarrassments long gone by or tell our instinct to hush up because we “couldn’t possibly be right.” We come upon an idea and as soon as it begins to take shape, we shoot it down because of a fear of reproach, inability to follow through, potential reactions from those around us, the list goes on. But how to escape this recursive cycle of not-so-supportive thoughts? The first step is to recognize that two little voices are competing for stage time in your head: that of a dreamer and that of a downer. The trick is to be able to distinguish which voice has the mic when the self-talk starts up and to learn how to balance this duality.

The Downer Voice

It is important to see that the “downer voice” is…
