A Self-Guide to Treating Headaches

Headaches can be a difficult ailment to remedy. This is because so many different causes can be at play. Rarely, only  a single factor is the culprit. Based on my experience, here are the steps to take:
1. Do you get headaches less than 3 times/week? Then you can use the following acute remedies:
Dr. Schulze’s Deep Tissue Ointment:  It’s the combination and potency of the herbs that makes this formula good. You can apply it on your temples, behind your ears, and on your forehead when a headache strikes. Just be careful because it has cayenne and it emits strong vapors. Keep it away from your eyes. Generally speaking, if you get acute headache relief from medications like ibuprofen, Motrin, or Excedrin, this may be a good remedy for you. If it doesn’t work, it’s still a good thing to use for muscles pains, sprains, and other bodily pains.
Doterra PastTense: This is a roll-on of a blend of essential oils. You can roll it across the back of your neck, your temples, behind your ears, and a light swab across your forehead (too much, and it may cause a burning sensation). Similarly, if you get relief specifically from medications like ibuprofen, Motrin, or Excedrin, then this may be a good remedy for you.
 Copper 3 mg: Take half a tablet when you get a headache. Hidden copper toxicity is a cause of a lot of headaches, and this ironically helps by increasing the synthesis of ceruloplasmin in your body, which helps to bind and excrete copper from the body. In some cases, it’s strong enough to alleviate an acute headache. It might be particularly useful in women who suffer from headaches during their menses. You can take 1/2 tablet up to three times a day. However, more often, getting rid of copper toxicity is a long process, which is best done through a nutritional balancing program based on Hair Mineral Analysis.
P5P: This antagonizes and helps to excrete copper from the body. It might be particularly useful in women who suffer from PMS headaches (7-10 days before their menses). You can safely take this up to 3 times a day for 1 week. The only side effect to look for is increased heart palpitations. In that case, it might not be the best option for you.
Flush-Free Niacin 250 mg: It’s important that you get the flush-free  niacin, so you won’t get the unpleasant red flushing. Whenever you get a headache, immediately take 1 tablet. This also helps to lower copper.
2. Do you get headaches 3 times/week or more? In that case, you suffer from chronic headaches. Then you can use the following remedies:
Nexrutine 250 mg: Take 1 tablet three times a day with food. This will ONLY be a good option if your headache specifically gets better with medications like Motrin, ibuprofen, and Excedrin. After 2 weeks, you should get an idea if it helps or not.
5-LOXIN 75 mg: Take 2 tablets twice a day with food. This will be a good option if you don’t get relief with medications like Motrin, ibuprofen, or Excedrin. After 2 weeks, you should get an idea if it works or not. Then you can reduce it to 2 tablets once a day. More appropriately, if you have gotten headache relief from medications like prednisone or antihistamines, then this would especially be something to try. This means that there could be an allergic and/or adrenal component to your headaches. Again, this is very complex, Which of course, is best to handle through a Nutritional Balancing Program based upon Hair Mineral Analysis.
3. What if none of these remedies work, or produce limited relief? Then the following are most likely culprits:
-Bowel Toxicity: This can be due to constipation (meaning, not having the same number of bowel movements as meals/day), poor digestion, parasites, or toxins from yeast overgrowth. According to Rice University, 70% of people today have systemic Candida. Additionally, Hair Mineral Analysis can help detect some of these factors. In the meantime, Coffee Enemas may provide acute relief in some cases.
-Diet: A Nutritional Balancing Program based upon Hair Mineral Analysis, can tell you what diet is best for you. In addition, avoid wheat because it is inflammatory. Also, if you eat eggplants, tomatoes, potatoes, or peppers at least three times/week, then that may be a culprit. Those are part of the Nightshade Family of vegetables, which are notorious for increasing inflammation in sensitive individuals.
-TMJ: Temporomandibular Joint Disorder is actually another common cause of headaches. These people tend to grind their teeth at night, and/or have a misaligned bite.
-Dental Amalgams: Silver dental amalgams contain 50% percent mercury. In some susceptible individuals, they can be a cause of chronic headaches. In most cases, unless they are removed, a person’s headaches are more difficult to fully cure.
-Hidden Copper Toxicity: Although copper symptoms can be mitigated by copper, niacin, or P5P, they are not the correct way for long-term use. A Nutritional Balancing Program based upon Hair Mineral Analysis would be the way to go. Coffee enemas may provide acute relief in some cases.
-Dehydration: One is not fully hydrated unless they are drinking at least 8 glasses of spring water everyday.  Even slight dehydration can provoke headaches in some sensitive individuals.
4. Summary
Every disease or condition is never consisted of only one cause. It is always multifaceted or holistic. Many of these facets can be detected in Hair Mineral Analysis. However, in a headache sufferer who is just looking for some relief to get their head above water, then these above recommendations may be beneficial.
What to keep in mind with these recommendations? They don’t balance the body in the long-run, but are natural remedies that can be tested. Also, for the oral supplements, be sure to take them with a full or near full stomach, in those who have sensitive stomachs.
