Headaches Are Not Normal | Chiropractor for Headaches in West Omaha, NE
Hi, I’m Dr. Joel Marley from Family First Chiropractic. And I’m going to start with a question for you. Do you believe headaches are normal? Or are they common? I certainly don’t believe that our body is designed to have our brain or our head hurt.
So I’m going to give you some ideas, some tips that maybe will help you find the cause of your migraine headaches. Okay. Pain, let’s help understand this. So, is the pain in your head the actual problem? If you say yes, then let me illustrate. By reaching in this hot toaster oven and grab this wire rack, what’s going to happen? It’s going to hurt, right? It is going to hurt. Now is pain the problem. If you say pain is the problem, then I could take a medication that numbed my entire arm and some of my face. And I can reach in here with no more oven mitts and remove this hot food, pains not the problem. Pain is a body signal of the problem. So finding the cause.
Let me illustrate. Have you tried to food log? We know that headaches are caused by either toxicity or deficiency. So where’s the toxicity? Where’s the deficiency? A food log can help you determine Am I deficient in water? So track and measure? How many ounces of water you’re consuming a day. How about sensitivities to certain food ingredients? Are you taking in toxicities of preservatives? MSG, something of the sort? So food log. How about have you looked at how you sit and spend your time. If you have a laptop and you’re using your laptop in your lap, you are stretching you are irritating muscles and nerves that could be the cause of your headache. How about chiropractic? Have you had your spine checked for subluxation a spinal misalignment from bad habits and trauma? That’s something you can try.
