May cause acid headache

Headaches & Migraines - Deacidification could help

Almost everyone knows headaches or migraines. In Germany around 54 million people suffer from seizure or chronic headaches. The latter can seriously affect the quality of life of those affected.

Facts about headache and migraines

The International Headache Society (IHS) describes over 200 different types of headache, which are divided into two large groups: Primary or idiopathic headache (complaints that occur independently, i.e. cannot be assigned to any cause) and secondary or symptomatic headache (pain that occurs as a result of other diseases). The two most common forms are tension headaches and migraines, which together make up around 90 percent of all headache disorders.

Migraines or headaches caused by acidosis (acidosis)

Acids are formed as lactic and carbonic acid in the metabolism during the processing of protein and carbohydrates as well as in working muscles. If the removal of acids is disturbed because too many acids are being supplied to the body - for example through food - or if there are not enough bases available for neutralization, over-acidification occurs. The consequences can include tiredness, exhaustion, muscle and joint pain. In addition, acidosis also promotes headaches and migraines. A severe form of acidosis called respiratory acidosis can just as often lead to headaches.

Treatment of headache caused by hyperacidity

The main focus of the treatment is the neutralization of hyperacidity. This can be done by changing your diet to a predominantly alkaline diet. Base therapeutics from the pharmacy can be used to support rapid deacidification. Moderate exercise in the fresh air stimulates the circulation and provides the body with sufficient oxygen. However, since lifestyle generally also has an influence on headaches or migraines, these should be carefully examined in order to identify and thus avoid negative factors such as excessive stress.
