What Causes Headache?

Headache and Migraine: Prevalence, Causes and Treatment

Recent studies* have shown that a common cause of headaches and migraines is toxins in common foods. In fact - chronic headache or frequent migraines are Red Flags . . .  you're  probably recting to FOOD TOXINS. Take care. If left unattended it could get worse and develop into disease.

    • More than 45 million Americans suffer from chronic recurring headaches
    • Around 40 million Americans suffer from migraines

Studies show a LOW TOXIN DIET is effective for relieving suffering. About low toxin diet

'Dear Deborah, My neurological issues have reduced significantly!  This is great, since it was the category that was giving me the most grief.  I have had two to four migraines with aura per month for the last two years.  I have now gone 31 straight days without one!  That's huge! . . . My skin issues have diminished significantly. My musculo-skeletal symptoms have decreased to almost nothing. Thanks, Bob Sawitski'

Headaches are caused by inflammation of the brain's delicate membranes


How common is Headache and Migraine?

Prevalence of Headache and Migraine in Children and Adults

The prevalence of headache and migraine amongst westernised countries is high - we believe too high. And it applies to both adults and small children alike.

In one study in Finland researchers found that seven year-old children starting school are suffering headache and migraine at any increasing rate:

  • Almost 52% of the children studied had suffered headache in the last 6 months (up from 14% previously)
  • And almost 6% had experienced migraine (up from 2% previously)

In addition - for adult Americans from a 2003 study - in any given year:

  • 90% of men and 95% of women suffer headache
  • They spend $2 billion annually on over-the-counter headache medications alone
  • More than 20% of all young people (15 - 25) in the US experience chronic headaches


What causes Headache and Migraine?

The causes of Headache are various. But if you can rule out jaw or neck injury, almost all the other occurrences of headache can be slated back to Food Sensitivity - directly or indirectly. Food sensitivity or Food Intolerance is when you cannot fully digest certain foods.

Chronic or recurring headaches are almost always food related. Specifically they happen because of your food intolerance: the inability to fully digest certain foods. Therefore a major cause of your headaches and migraines could be one of:

  • Gluten intolerance
  • Dairy intolerance
  • Yeast sensitivity
  • Other possibilities include Corn Allergy and Nightshade Vegetables

Of course you will not have all these sensitivities - probably only one, maybe two. Learn more with the Free ebook about Food Toxins

"I took your advice and the results have been fantastic. My headaches have reduced drastically as well as the regular wheeziness.

The biggest difference has been with the minor migrains i used to get after exercise...the hotter i got and the harder i worked out...especially running.....i would always end up with a massive headache that would last the rest of the day.

My husband and i love competing in triathlons, so in order for me to survive these headaches, i would take nurofen before a race (or workout) and then straight after....often i would still get the headache but sometimes not as bad. Now we have investigated a number of areas including my salt levels, neck and muscular problems and water intake, but nothing has solved the problem. It was getting to the point where i was scared to work out too hard (especially in summer) for fear of what i'd live with for the rest of the day......and with children...that's not good! 

Since being free of those foods i have been able to train hard and not have the headaches....it has been AMAZING....i thought it was something i would just have to live with.....so thanks a million!!!! Erica"


How did I get the food intolerance that's causing my Headaches?

Blame your parents! Food intolerance is genetic . . . it's in your genes! You got it from your parents, grandparents and other ancestors!

That also means - if you have children - you have already passed on the same genetic material to your sons and daughters. Don't you think it's best to find out if you are affected by FOOD TOXINS? So you can share this precious information with other family members (older and younger)?

What if I do nothing about my Headaches or Migraines?
