A major cause of headaches and migraines is chronic dehydration. This can be as a result of inadequate water intake, alcohol consumption, and high environmental temperature. Other possible triggers include allergies to pollen and dust or eating foods that contain chemicals or that you are sensitive to. Alternatively, there may be a deficiency of vitamin D3, magnesium or iodine or disruption to the bowel flora. There could also be low levels of serotonin or melatonin or other hormonal changes in women. Tea and coffee drinkers may experience migraines as a withdrawal symptom when they miss a dose of caffeine. People are also more likely to have headaches if they are mentally or physically exhausted or under a lot of stress. Sometimes, atmospheric changes, bright lights or smoke can be triggers. Electronic devices, wiring and pylons emit Electromagnetic Frequency radiation (EMF), which can cause symptoms in some people. Both medicinal and recreational drugs can cause headaches. Some headaches may be symptoms of a cold or flu or of an underlying condition such as a tumour or an intra-cerebral haemorrhage (bleed in the brain).
Headaches and migraines consist of head pain which may be frontal (across the forehead and temples), unilateral (affecting one side of the face) or bilateral (affecting both sides of the face). Migraines generally last longer than headaches, sometimes up to 1-3 days. Some people experience warning signs (aura) about half an hour before they get a migraine, which can include blurred vision, loss of peripheral vision, numbness or tingling in the body, nausea, vomiting and light-sensitivity. In some cases, patients may have speech and neurological problems before a migraine. During the migraine, the patient will likely experience intense throbbing on one side of the head that worsens with physical activity; nausea may be present as well as sensitivity to noise or light. Some people also have difficulty concentrating, feel like they have a high or low temperature and have abdominal pain and diarrhoea.

Pain relief medication is commonly used to relieve the symptoms of headaches and migraines, with stronger drugs being used for more intense migraines. Anti-emetic medication can help to ease nausea and vomiting. During a migraine attack, many people find it helpful to sleep or rest in a dark room. A healthy diet containing a mix of fruit, raw and fermented vegetables and beneficial fats is vital. Removing trigger foods from the diet is a preventative measure as this will prevent excessive histamine production; artificial colourings, flavourings and sweeteners should also be avoided. Drinking plenty of water, and less alcohol and caffeine, will help to prevent migraines and headaches from occurring, as well as possibly helping to relieve them when they do occur. Gentle exercise should be balanced with adequate sleep and stress reduction techniques. Limiting exposure to EMF radiation will help. It would also be of benefit to replace any products in the home that contain harmful chemicals with safe alternatives. Some people have been helped by acupuncture and Trans-cranial Magnetic Stimulation (TES).
Experiences and case studies
A 35-year-old woman was struggling with migraine attacks which caused her to vomit, meaning that she couldn’t keep down any painkillers. She had 5 weekly BICOM® treatments and was then free from migraines and hadn’t had a single attack 6 months later.
