Children and Headaches... Where are they coming from?

HEADACHES...Most of us adults have had them,... but when our children say that they have a headache we can sometimes feel helpless in knowing what is the best course of action to take as it relates to something natural. Some children are prone to migraines and have them from a very early age, but where are they coming from and how to stop them is the question. After you have checked to see if a medication is the problem, changes in sleep patterns, stress, and other common factors... here are just other simple checks you can do on your child first before being referred to a Neurologist.

***Do an Eye, Ear, Nasal, Mouth, and Food Allergy Check***

-Check their NASAL PASSAGES to see if they are clogged or swollen. Clogged or swollen Nasal Passages could mean less air being able to flow through. Less air can means a headaches, dizziness, lethargy.  Swollen passages can mean sinuses.

-Check their TEETH to see if their gums are swollen and/or inflamed or if there are cavities. As we all know cavities can give a combination of tooth and headaches. Swollen and inflamed gums can mean infection.

-If your child wears GLASSES, ask the optometrist to check the strength of their prescription in their glasses. If their eyes have not been check recently, have them checked for glasses. Also, monitor computer, game, and television time as well. Check for proper lighting in your home.

-Children below 2-3 yrs, watch to see if they are pointing, holding, or pulling at their EARS, this could mean an ear infection or earache. Earaches can give headaches as well. See your ND or MD for the best care.

-Lastly, but not least... This is probably more common than you realize... "FOODS ALLERGIES." When the body is rejecting something, that rejection can show up in so many different ways. Such as, stomachaches, headaches, tongue allergies, swellings, breakouts, fevers, swollen lymph, tiredness, behaviors, etc... So in children, we must pay special attention to what they eat or we may face many doctors or emergency room visits. In this day and time we can be allergic to anything...Including our water supply because of chemicals in our ecosystem.

:::Start by monitoring foods:::
EXAMPLE:  write down all foods eaten that day or before the headache occurred,  If there was a complete dinner, do not serve the same food combinations again. only serve one particular food at a time from the prior combination, and serve alone or with something different. If a headache occurs, you will know the culprit.

Once we have figure out where the headaches are deriving, we will better know how to help our children holistically. You can check with your local whole food stores for many holistic remedies and I will blog about more of these remedies in the future.
