What Are Frozen Headaches?
We explained that ice cream can be a cause for headaches. Actually, any cold food or drink can trigger it. This is because it constricts the blood vessels on the roof of the mouth. Afterwards, as they warm up and expand, they send pain signals through a nerve responsible for the pain in the face. As a result, the brain thinks the pain is from the forehead, resulting in headache. More here.
Headache Treatment Though Sound-Based Therapy
There is a new therapy based on sound that is showing positive effects on controlling high blood pressure and migraine. It reads brain activity using sensors in the scalp. This activity is transformed in audible tones and immediately reflected into the brain. The treatment has also proved effective for insomnia. More details here.
