Top Santa Clarita chiropractor and nutrition advisor offers natural alternatives to ineffective and potentially dangerous drugs for headache relief
Have you needed headache relief in the past month? Headaches may be common, but they are not normal. So if you get recurring headaches, even if you have found temporary relief, you need to read this.
Headaches are one of the Top 20 disabilities in the American workforce, costing employers $13 billion  a year in lost work.
But the real cost is to the headache sufferer. There is no replacing the time lost with family and friends if recurring headaches get in the way of doing the things that really matter.

The most common reaction to a headache is to reach for some kind of pain-killing pill, but studies show that conventional headache medicines may not be your safest  or most effective  choices for headache relief. There are safer natural alternatives.
The good news about most headaches is that the scariest causes – tumor, aneurism and meningitis – are rare.
The bad news is that conventional medicine has little to offer in lasting relief for vast majority of America’s 28 million headache sufferers.
Just because tumors are rare does not mean you can afford to ignore what’s causing your headaches.
I used to get migraine headaches, the most intense and most difficult to work through. I was on five prescription medications. Some were for migraines, some to treat the digestive tract damage the migraine medication was causing.
I’ll share with you what cured my migraines in a moment, but first let’s cover the basics of how the food we eat can set us up for migraine pain.

Common Foods and Ingredients that Trigger Migraine Headaches:
- MSG (it’s in just about every processed food)
- Lunchmeats and cured meats
- Red wine and beer
- Diet drinks and foods that contain Aspartame

Here is a partial list of natural supplements that have helped some people find natural headache relief:
- CoQ10: An important nutrient in cell energy chemistry; destroyed by cholesterol medication.
- Vitamin B Complex: Important to cell energy chemistry; destroyed by stress.
- Vitamin D3: Immune powerhouse, calcium transporter from natural sunlight; destroyed by sunblock.
- Magnesium: Muscle, nerve and blood vessel relaxer and calcium regulator;
destroyed by inappropriate diet.
- Melatonin: Best known as a mild mannered sleep aid, melatonin is an anti-aging superhero that protects brain cells; serves immune, weight loss and hormone functions; and cleans up inflammation in the gall bladder and across the blood brain barrier, where few antioxidants can go.
Dr. Polucki Provides Natural Headache Relief Fast without Cracking or Twisting Your Neck
It is generally accepted that most headaches are caused by a change of blood pressure in the brain.
If there is physical tension in the neck, restricting blood flow to and from the brain, no amount of medication is going to fix the real problem.
As promised earlier, here is what cured my migraines: After years of taking medication for my headaches, I found lasting relief in Upper Cervical Chiropractic.
UCC is a type of no-twist, no-crack chiropractic that actually measures blood flow to the brain with a noninvasive exam before every treatment.
The doctor gently and precisely nudges pressure points around the base of the patient’s skull.
The doctor then continues to measure and reduce stress on the patient’s blood vessels, muscles, joints and nerves throughout the healing process.
For me, that process included weaning myself from the foods and ingredients listed earlier.
Within 12 weeks of UCC treatment, my lifelong headaches were gone, and for the past 30 years, I have not needed any medication.
If you’re frustrated with the “take another pill” approach toward health care, you may be a good candidate for one of our drug-free, non-surgical, no-twisting-or-cracking headache relief programs.
