Menopause Solutions – 3 Simple Tips For Reducing Your Headaches Through The Perimenopause – Tip 1
Could your headaches be related to your hormones?
Headaches are such a common problem that many women consider them normal, and are caused by a variety of factors. Many of us find headaches are worse with stress, and as well as stress hormones, headaches are related to changes in sex hormone levels – which can occur at any time of our lives, including the premenopause, the time from mid 30s onwards when things start to go awry.
If your headaches are worse when you are pregnant, before or during your period, or when you are on oral hormone therapy, these are clues that they may be sex- hormone related.
TIP 1. Identifying any food triggers that may be making your headaches worse. Common triggers include onions, red wine, cheese and chocolate, as well as caffeine and sugar, but we are all individuals and your food triggers may be different to your friends. Some foods that can improve hormone balance at this time include; eggs, chicken, whole milk, ground flax seed, ground chia seed which are high in the omega 3 oils and fibre.
Of course it is better to eat these proteins from organic and welfare sources where hormones and antibiotics are not used, and stress hormones are not induced by living conditions.. For example eggs from free-range chickens have different cholesterol content than eggs from chickens that are fed hormones and that do not run around to find their own food.
Action step – why not keep a food diary & see what links to your headaches.
