  • Airborne Causes of Headache

    Frequent headaches can be a severe and disabling illness. Some patients identify chemical exposures and specific environments as headache triggers. To make a complicated problem simpler, we assume that the trigger for two thirds of migraine headaches comes through the mouth

    In addition to ingested substances triggering headaches, there are a variety of airborne or environmental causes of headache. Numerous chemicals in home, office and industrial environments are capable of producing headache. The effect of inhaled substances and ingested substances often act synergistically. This means that if you overload your body by both ingesting and inhaling trigger substances, a headache is more likely to occur. Some people report that they are sensitive to the aromatic substances in the air, which can range from paint solvents and industrial chemicals to the perfuming ingredients in for cosmetic purposes.

    Inhaled toxins which typically produce headache include cigarette smoke, carbon monoxide, propane, natural gas and air pollution gases. Formaldehyde is another substance that can produce headache. Formaldehyde evaporates from plywoods, press board furniture, carpets, and is found in air contaminated by cigarette smoke.

    Patients who have typical airborne allergies, reacting to pollens, dust and molds, often experience headaches.

    These problems are easier to diagnose because they are associated with nose and sinus congestion, sneezing, coughing, sore throat, cough and irritated eyes.

    • Headache Solution = Remove the Cause: The Alpha Nutrition Program is a standard method of diet revision that can resolve chronic headaches. The first phase of the program is an attempt to clear symptoms. This is home science. You start with the hypothesis that your food intake is causing or contributing to your illness and you do an experiment to find out if it is true. When you read Alpha Nutrition Program instructions, you will realize that there are three tracks through the program - fast, medium and slow. You need to decide the best track for you. To help you decide what strategy is best for you, we suggest rating the severity of your existing illness: You can retreat to Phase 1 foods and replace one or two meals per day with Alpha ENF. This is the medium track on Alpha Nutrition- rehearsal mode. If the problem is prolonged headaches, especially a mixed pattern with daily pain punctuated by attacks of migraine, recovery involves a period of reduced food intake or fasting. The most definitive experiment is to take a food holiday. We recommend Alpha ENF to replace food. The best way to begin is to order the Rescue Starter Pack that includes the Program book and a 500 gram jar of Alpha ENF to try.
