Crystals for Headaches
Headaches are in general a sign of stress, tension, overtiredness or various illnesses. They can originate from the muscles, blood vessels, nerves or the brain's membranes. If there is no obvious external cause such as a blow to the head, the causes are usually inflammation, blood pressure or other changes in the composition of the body's fluids.
Any one of these can arise from one or more of the following.
Tension, particularly because of bad posture (tension of the back and the back of the neck when driving) or eye strain (reading in bad light, working for long periods in from of a computer screen)
Feverish illnesses (colds, flu, sinusitis, conjunctivitis, cerebrospinal meningitis or encephalitis etc.).
Hormonal changes (eg. before menstruation)
Changes in blood pressure (blood circulation disturbances in the brain, high blood pressure, low blood pressure in connection with migraine)
Metabolic and digestive disturbances (hunger, feeling of an empty stomach or low blood sugar)
Hypersensitivity in connection with changing weather conditions.
Problems with the cervical spinal column
Nervous and emotional causes
Sever general diseases
If a headache last more than 24 hours a doctor needs to be consulted.
