Let’s take a look at some of the most important things to be doing in order to defend yourself from another migraine attack.
Living a Healthy Life
it is extremely important to start and maintain a healthy lifestyle. What does this include?
- Get a good night’s sleep: Go to sleep at the same time every night and make sure you are getting six to eight hours of sleep.
- Enjoy a balanced diet: Eat regular meals to avoid low blood sugar, as this is known to trigger migraines. Eat food that are good for you and that combat migraines.
- Maintain a regular exercise routine
- Control Stress
Mental and emotional health and management of stress are all very vital to migraine prevention. How can this be done? Some have found the following to be very helpful:
- Taking a walk
- Doing something creative
What helps you to relax? There are many things you can do that bring you pleasure without stress. Finding such hobbies or activities can help. However, we may have trouble defeating stress in our lives on our own. This might a good time to consult a trusted confidant or even a counselor or advisor. People that are outside of the situation can often see what those in the situation cannot. They can offer us advice and see ways to bring healing into our lives that we may not be able to see.

Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care
Upper cervical chiropractic care, such as that which is performed by the doctors at UC Life Chiropractic Centre in Victoria, British Columbia, focuses on aligning the top two vertebrae in the neck. Such realignment restores proper communication between the body and the brain. This allows cerebral blood, cerebrospinal fluid, and nerves to function as they should. If our upper neck vertebrae are out of alignment, those bodily fluids cannot do their jobs in the right way. This can cause various health problems, including migraines.
When these two small bones are aligned properly, healing of all sorts of problems, migraines included, can begin. Call the doctors at UC Life Chiropractic Centre today, and start your journey to a better and pain-free life.
