Chinese Medicine and Headaches

Chinese Medicine and Headaches 

Conventional treatment focuses on relieving the headache each time they happen.  Little is done to fix the problem causing your headaches in the first place. Conventional belief is that headaches can't be resolved, but that's definitely not the view of Chinese Medicine. 

Chinese Medicine sees your headache as a lack of internal stability.  Oriental medicine uses several natural headache  relief techniques that restore your body's self­healing mechanisms.  These include acupressure (or acupuncture), diet, herbs, 
special massage methods and lifestyle modifications.  

Since there are various types of headaches, these are only some general 
recommendations.  

Food Therapy and Headaches 
Eat a diet composed primarily of:  
• A large variety of cooked vegetables (fresh, lightly cooked, big variety) 
• Whole grains (brown rice, buckwheat and millet are all good) 
• Animal protein (small amounts, more like a condiment than a main course)  
• Water (room temperature) 
•To get a good effect, stay away from everything else until you recover (especially dairy, sweets, cold foods, fruit juices and  oily­greasy foods.) 
•Specific foods that are good for migraines: rye broth, rye porridge or congee, 
omega­3, Dragonwell green tea, walnuts 

Also: 
• Don't overeat any one food  
• Moderate spices for flavoring  
• Let your stomach empty before eating again  
• Don't overeat or eat just before bed  
• Don't skip meals  
• Drink only about a teacup of warm water/green tea with meals

Hope these general recommendations help, if you need further detailed information regarding your specific situation, give us a call at 850-766-5678 or email Dr. Craig at integrativemedicineman@yahoo.com

Take care and be well!
