It’s not surprising. According to Dr. Seth Marquit, the medical director at the Pritikin Longevity Center, any time you make a major dietary change – even if it’s healthy – it can throw off your system, and one side effect is headaches. Like if you cut out chocolate – or caffeine… both of which HELP head pain. The good news is, the headaches will be a short-term problem and should disappear once your body adjusts to the new eating plan. But in the meantime, here are a few natural ways to get rid of them.
First: Drink a glass of water. Headaches can be caused by dehydration. Once you’re adequately hydrated, your blood will flow more smoothly and the pain should subside.
Another natural headache cure: Pinch the spot between your thumb and index finger for 60 seconds. That’s an acupressure point that can relieve head pain.
Lastly, try aromatherapy – and take a whiff of an essential oil like eucalyptus, basil or peppermint. They all trigger a relaxation response.
