Anxiety Headache - Discussion, Prevention, Remedies
Are you suffering from an anxiety headache and wish to learn how to prevent and deal with such attacks?
The links between anxiety and headaches are far-reaching and not acutely understood. There is no doubt, however, about the fact that anxiety / tension headaches are incredibly frustrating for those who experience them.
Although everyone experiences headaches on occasion, people with anxiety related headaches often experience them to such an extent that it begins to interfere with their lives. In the past, it was thought that tension headaches were primarily the result of excessive tension in the muscles of the jaw and neck. Although recent studies have produced results that call this hypothesis into question, it is probably true that excessive anxiety, and the muscle tension which accompanies it, are at the route of tension or anxiety headaches.
There is a fairly high correlation between anxiety disorders and headaches in certain individuals. Recently, studies have investigated whether stress or anxiety related to an anxiety disorder causes headaches, or whether increased anxiety is the result of experiencing distress brought on by a headache.

A note about Anxiety and High Blood Pressure - Discussion and Remedies
In natural health and healing, we believe in holistic health and healing, as we realize that different parts of the human body are highly interlinked, often beyond Man's understanding. We also believe that the body has the ability to heal itself of any disease, even supposedly incurable diseases.
In order to do so, the body needs the support of some basic dietary and lifestyle good health habits, such as a full body detox and a proper understanding and application of nutrition. No matter how remote or unrelated a health condition may seem, these fundamental health steps will greatly magnify the effects and benefits of any of our health-promoting efforts, including the use of specific natural health remedies.
Though there isn't a clear conclusion on this, effective headache management usually involves removing oneself from an environment with a great deal of stimuli, and allowing oneself to sit / lie down and relax. In general, a fairly significant number of persons with relatively severe headaches (migraines) complained of anxiety, suggesting that the mechanism of action that underlies each issue may be similar to the other.
Controlling stress and tension is essential for reducing anxiety-related headaches. Simple habits, such as nutritional eating, exercise, proper hydration, and getting enough sleep, can be monumental in decreasing the incidence of these anxiety headaches.
Additionally, investigating the source of one's headaches can be helpful in finding a method to treat them. For example, are the headaches caused by stress alone, or has anxiety caused you to reduce your caffeine intake? A rapid reduction in caffeine intake can cause fairly significant headaches. Other possible sources of headaches are bad posture, hormonal changes, the use of certain medications, and the use of certain substances.
Though it is generally quite difficult to pinpoint the precise cause of a headache, including an anxiety headache, we do know certain things that tend to cause them. The best way to avoid anxiety-related headaches is by making an effort to maintain a balanced lifestyle, and a relaxed, peaceful state of mind.
There are a variety of natural ways to deal with anxiety, which can in turn prevent headaches. Natural ways of dealing with and preventing headaches are also likely to be useful for individuals who suffer from anxiety or tension headaches. Learning ways to cope with anxiety before a headache develops will truly improve the occurrence of these painful episodes.
