Headaches? Check your stress levels!
New research confirms that stress contributes to the onset of headache disorders and it accelerates the progression to chronic headache, and the headache experience itself can – in turn – serve as a stressor. Dr. Sara H. Schramm from University Hospital of University Duisburg-Essen in Germany suggests that mind/body treatments, including meditation, yoga or tai chi, and behavioral treatments such as stress management, coping skills, biofeedback and relaxation training may decrease headache frequency by 35% to 50%.
