Types Of Allergy Headaches You Might Experience:

Hay Fever

This is perhaps the most common cause of a headache brought on by allergies. If you typically get your headaches at the change of seasons and you have other common symptoms such as nasal congestion, you are likely dealing with hay fever.

Common Allergies

Just about anything that you are allergic to could potentially result in headache symptoms. This is true for pet allergies, food allergies, and more. If you are dealing with headaches due to common allergies as mentioned above, you are likely going to experience everything from facial pain in your forehead area and around your temples. In some cases, you might experience nausea in addition to it.

How To Remedy It?

There are plenty of different things that you can do to improve allergy headaches. First, you want to speak to your doctor about your allergies and the symptoms that you are experiencing. They should be able to guide you towards the right path of resolution.

Getting Allergies Under Control

Perhaps the best thing that you will be able to do is to limit your allergies in the first place. There are plenty of things that you can do to help control your allergies. For one, you might be prescribed antihistamines in order to prevent your body from making histamine which is something that has been linked to symptoms of headaches.1 That being said, if you are already experiencing a headache, taking an antihistamine will not help reduce it. Another thing that you could do if you are suffering from allergies would be to take decongestants which are known to help reduce the pressure in your sinuses which should subsequently help reduce the symptoms of the headaches you are experiencing. Lastly, you could look to get allergy shots for whatever it is that you are allergic to. This will ultimately help your body build up exposure to your allergies and help to reduce the severity of the symptoms when you are exposed to it.

Essential Oils

A good thing that you can use to prevent and reduce the severity of your headaches caused by allergies would be essential oils. There are specific essential oils that can help to reduce the negative symptoms associated with allergies including headaches. One specific blend that is especially helpful is MONQ’s Relieve R blend. This particular blend comes with a variety of powerful essential oils that can help to reduce inflammation that worsens the severity of headaches and pain relief. Headaches are the direct result of inflammation due to the body’s natural response to its allergy. Therefore, by using both ginger and helichrysum in a blend which is both known to have powerful anti-inflammatory properties, you should be able to reduce the severity of the inflammatory response.2,3 Spikenard is not only capable of helping to reduce inflammation as well, but it is also effective at relaxing the mind, reducing stress, and stimulating the immune system. Because of this, it can be a great addition to limiting the overall symptoms commonly experienced during a migraine or headache.

Headaches are a common symptom resulting from different allergic reactions. If you are suffering from allergies and you have tried conventional medicine and methods to fight the headaches that come along with it, your best bet might be to try some holistic methods. One of the very best natural ways to combat your allergy headaches is through aromatherapy with essential oils. Essential oils can offer tremendous improvements in dealing with the symptoms that you might be regularly experiencing as a result of your allergies. Regardless of what is causing your headache symptoms, the right blend can curb a lot of the issues resulting in it. Try MONQ blends today for better experiences and better headaches!
