CHEMICAL TRIGGERS OF HEADACHES AND MIGRAINES
Headaches caused by toxic chemicals can be debilitating, but most people don’t connect the pain with their environment.
The cosmetics, shampoos, lotions and other products we put on our bodies can be just as harmful as anything we put in them.
Ingredients found in face washes, sunscreens, shampoos and body lotions have been linked to everything from headaches and hormonal disruptions to cancer, and what’s worse is that they go directly into your bloodstream when applied to the skin or hair. Exposing yourself to a ‘buffet’ of chemicals on a daily basis could allow these chemicals into your system and increase your chances of ill-health, including headaches.
- Household Cleaners
- Personal Care Products
- Toilet paper, tampons, tissues
It’s not only your skin that comes into contact with these potentially harmful chemicals. Think about some of the most ‘delicate’ areas of your body and consider how you may be exposing them to chemicals: Eyes, ears, nose, mouth, armpits, hands, groin, vagina, penis, anus.
