Menopause Solutions – 3 Simple Tips For Reducing Your Headaches Through The Perimenopause – Tip 2 – Water
Could your headaches be related to your hormones?
Here is another tip that helps most headaches, whether hormone-related or not…
TIP 2. Drink enough clean water. Dehydration is a common cause of headaches, but this doesn’t mean tap water! Tap water is too full of chemicals and often xenoestrogens (artificial chemicals with oestrogen-like effects). Even bottled water may be contaminated, especially if they are sold in plastic bottles, so invest in the best water filtration system you can afford.
Dehydration, even if it is very mild, causes your stress hormones to increase because the body interprets dehydration as a life-threatening situation. When your stress hormones increase, it causes a cascade of changes to your thyroid and sex hormones, as well as your insulin. Try to drink 1.5 to 2.5L of water every day to maintain your hormone balance.
Action Point – keep a measure of all the fluids you drink over a 3-day period, quanittiy as well as quality. If you are drinking a lot of caffeinated drinks such as cola, tea and coffee, you may well be dehydrating yourself and adding to your woes. Likewise, juice is a surprisingly high sugar, high GI drink, so use it cautiously.
