Beating Headaches with Low Carb Diets
Many people have heard about low carb diets and how they can help you lsoe weight. They can also help reduce headaches.
Now, the first thing I must say is this. Not everyone with headaches will cure their headaches eating low-carb foods.
There are many things that can contribute to headaches. And in fact, many things do contribute to your headaches. Remember, it is about adding more to your health than you are taking away.
If you have not read my book yet I highly recommend the chapter on the 7 things you can do to add to your health.
Many people don’t drink enough water, and so the headache is a dehydration headache and drinking water helps it. See my article on why the only things that counts as water is water.
Many people have tension headaches because they cannot handle stress well. This can be from beliefs or nerves not functioning right.
The list goes on.
Today it is about how Eating a low-carb diet might do more than improve your health and help you shed a few pounds. Cutting carbs can also relieve headaches.
A study performed at Albert Einstein College of Medicine showed that a low-carbohydrate diet reduced the frequency and severity of headaches in regular sufferers. Half of those surveyed said they got the same kind of relief from the diet as they did from migraine medication.
One explanation? Gluten - which is found in wheat and other cereal grains - has been linked to migraines. In fact, an Italian study found that migraine sufferers were 10 times more likely to have a gluten intolerance than the general population.
If you have frequent headaches, you should be tested for gluten sensitivity (also known as celiac disease). Cutting out the carbs, especially those made from grains, could be the solution you are looking for.
If you don’t really want to give up gluten, you can also get rid of your allergies to gluten. Or any allergy for that matter.
The two techniques that when combined have almost a 100% success rate with eliminating allergies is the Body Talk System and BioSet.
The ABC Deitz Wellness Center in Bismarck ND does this combination and is highly effective (almost 100%) successful in helping people heal their allergies.
