Cure Severe Headaches During Flight

Volume 7    |    Issue 24

Do you ever get a severe headache when you fly? If so, you're not alone. It happens to a lot of people. In fact, one out of 12 people who fly will experience a severe headache from the experience. It's such a problem that researchers set out to find out why it happens — and how to stop it. And they may have found the answer.

The researchers in this study believed that "The major changes in cabin pressure at take-off and landing may cause tissue damage and inflammation in the sinuses. This releases the substance PGE2, which can make the blood vessels in the brain expand and thus cause head pain." So they set out to find out if this is true.

Torben Petersen and Sebastian Bao Dinh Bui, from Aalborg University in Denmark, conducted the study. They put subjects in a pressure chamber to simulate the pressure changes during a flight. While in the chamber, they took regular saliva samples to measure the levels of PGE2 and cortisol (the stress hormone). They found that both substances were elevated in the people who suffered from headaches from the pressure.

The researchers said, "The elevated cortisol level indicates that these people are very stressed when they fly. We have already seen that some airline passengers develop anxiety and stress when they travel, which may also trigger a headache. It's a vicious cycle."

The elevated PGE2 indicates that inflammation contributes to the headaches and the body is trying to fight it. Both of these findings can help you avoid the headaches and fly without pain. Here's what you can do.

If you find that you're anxious when you fly, try taking some melatonin 10-30 minutes before takeoff. The melatonin will help you relax while you're flying, and it will help prevent jag lag. You don't need a lot of melatonin. I suggest using a melatonin spray. Usually, one spray under the tonague (hold it there for 20 seconds before swallowing) gives you about 1.5 mg. This will be enough to help relax you in about 10 minutes or so. A tablet will take a little longer to work and typically has a larger dose. The small spray probably won't affect your ability to be awake and ready to go when you land. But make sure you're wide awake before driving.

Whether you struggle with anxiety or not, two other supplements can help you avoid the headaches. One is Reduloxin, which will help keep the inflammation to a minimum during the flight. I suggest taking two tablets 30 minutes before the flight.

The other supplement is CircO2. This is one of the best supplements around for dealing with any altitude-related issues. I always take it when I go above 5,000 feet. It helps boost circulation, which allows more oxygen to move through your body. The increased oxygen helps keep you relaxed and able to handle the higher altitudes better. Deep breathing exercises before you get on the plane also can help.
