Migraine & headache cures

Many types of head pain have a common cause. The cause is the sleep disorder of intense and prolonged teeth clenching. It’s perfectly normal to clench your teeth when you sleep. We all do from time to time – during normal sleep cycles.

What happens when you clench your jaw muscles up to 14 times more intensely than normal?

It results in tension headaches, migraine headache pain, TMJ face pain, eye headache, sinus headaches, menstrual and hormonal migraines, neck pain, morning and night time headaches and also teeth grinding (Bruxism).

Prolonged and intense teeth clenching causes significant muscle contractions and nerve bundle distortions, mainly of the temporalis muscles on the sides of the head, as shown in the diagram to the right. The location of the pain depends on where the teeth are positioned when clenching.
