If you’ve ever experienced headaches when the weather changes, chances are the barometric pressure is to blame. When barometric pressure and humidity drops simultaneously, conditions are particularly ripe for a barometric pressure headache.
Barometric pressure, according to Environmental Monitor, “is the weight of the overlying air pressing down on the earth. It is also known as air pressure. Low barometric pressure means the overlying air is rising, whereas high pressure means the overlying air is sinking.”
Individuals who are particularly sensitive to atmospheric pressure changes may experience headaches that are in sync with weather fluctuations. However, there’s no reason to suffer every time the weather changes. There are steps you can take to avoid or lessen your discomfort.
Here are five tips for alleviating the pain.
Take an anti-inflammatory. An all-natural alternative to ibuprofen is Bio-Allay. Bio-Allay can be purchased directly from the Biotics Research website or from other health supplement stores or websites.
Use a humidifier or ionizer. If you live in a dry area, try using a humidifier or ionizer. Lie down in a closed area for best results. Some people claim that taking a walk by the river is also comforting.
