Headaches / Migraines

As many different causes as there are new modern plagues – including you don’t much like your boss, your neighbour, your mother-in-law etc.

Lack of B vitamins is the one that springs to mind. Too much alcohol (in the days previous) cigarettes, coffee, chocolate, milk products, gluten. Pesticides and food additives and other toxic chemicals in the environment. See “Find Out” and “Watch It”. They are a mine of information.

It can be allergy to a food such as gluten or cows milk (See Section on Allergy) It can be fatigue, PMT, infection such as flu. It can be a heavy metal such as lead, mercury from the teeth stoppings, or aluminum from the deodorant. We have just been told a lot of cosmetics have polluting chemicals in them. Some hair dyes have the same. Even some lipsticks have lead in them.

New fitted furniture especially that made from chipboard, can out-gas chemicals and resins. Traffic, especially diesel, out-gases fumes, as can new paint if it is not Eco Paint.

Wrong glasses for reading can produce eye strain.

Electromagnetic pollution can be a factor. If you are too near a mobile phone mast it can emit electro-smog that can keep you awake at night. Talking on a mobile phone can give you a headache. Sleeping above (i.e. in the room above) a DECT phone, a TV left on standby, or a computer can prevent sleep and contribute to headaches. Switching off all electrical appliances (except the fridge) does make for more peaceful nights. (See Section on Electromagnetic Pollution and useful websites on the subject).

There is a lot of help to be had by now with this aspect of things including foil-sandwich wallpaper (to keep out problems from next door) carbon based paint, silver mesh curtains, and a mat for earthing the bed. A no-spring mattress and a wooden bedstead can also help.

Don’t be put off persuing the electro-smog information by friends who tell you it is “all a load of nonsense”. (If only they were right). There are always a bunch of “flat-earthers” at every gathering! Their mind sets pre-date the electro-havoc era, and their houses/offices/locality may not be so vulnerable.

If you suffer significantly from headaches, pursue every avenue, until you find out why. If it continues and gets worse, check it is not a brain tumour.

Success Story

"We came across Foresight as we decided to try for our first child (we had previously had a miscarriage). We understood it as a different approach to healthy living and have kept on, despite not planning any more children, a lot of your principles and advice in our daily routine. We get our fresh produce (fruit, veg, dairy, eggs, meat) delivered from local organic farms and have not found our bills going up, as we stick to what we get! I threw aluminium cookware out and replaced it for glass or stainless steel and cut out artificially composed foods. We also did hair analysis and have been filtering our water for almost 4 years now (we have now invested in an osmosis filter) as our heavy metals were quite high.

We got pregnant immediately on both occasions and my pregnancies and births were both very straight forward (one water birth, one natural) and we now have two bright and healthy sparks challenging our existence (you didn't warn us about that!!)

I thank you for the encouragement on breastfeeding as I have a predisposition to hayfever and it seems that, so far, my children haven't got any! This, in my mind, is due to their healthy start in life thanks to your leadership and inspiration."
