Who doesn’t like getting wet in the rain and enjoying the monsoon season? Everyone, or most of us, likes getting wet in the rainy season, right? But it is reported that many of us suffer from headaches, fevers, colds, or flu after getting drenched in the rain.
In this blog, we will discover “Rain Causes A headache, myth or fact”, and some ayurvedic home remedies to stop rainy headaches.
Are you one of those people who feels like your head is about to explode every time it rains? Do you find yourself reaching for painkillers every time the weather takes a turn for the worse? If so, you’re not alone. Many people believe that rain can cause headaches, but is there any truth to this myth? Let’s explore this topic from an Ayurvedic perspective.
First things first, let’s talk about the science behind headaches and rain. Many people believe that if their unprotected heads hit rainwater in the rainy season, they will suffer headaches and dizziness. Meanwhile, some others think this is just a myth. However, there is some scientific evidence that changes in barometric pressure during rainy weather can trigger migraines in some individuals. When the barometric pressure drops, it can cause the tissues in your head to expand, leading to pain and discomfort. To prevent rainy headaches, it is recommended to wear a hat or use an umbrella to keep the head dry and avoid sudden changes in temperature.
However, a headache can indeed be caused by rainwater, according to Ayurveda. A sudden drop in temperature will be experienced by the body when it rains. This can cause the blood vessels in the head to constrict, leading to a headache. To prevent this, it is important to keep the body warm and dry during rainy weather. Also, staying hydrated can also help alleviate headaches caused by changes in weather.
Now, let’s look at this issue from an Ayurvedic perspective. According to Ayurveda, headaches are caused by imbalances in the doshas – Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. When these doshas are out of balance, it can lead to a variety of health problems, including headaches. So, can rain cause headaches from an Ayurvedic perspective? The answer is yes, but not for the reasons you might think.
In Ayurveda, rain is associated with the Vata dosha, which governs movement and is responsible for the nervous system. When it rains, the Vata dosha can become imbalanced, leading to headaches and other health problems. So, while rain itself isn’t causing headaches, it can be a contributing factor for those who are already prone to imbalances in the Vata dosha.
In order to prevent headaches, shampooing with warm water is the best way to relieve headaches after being hit by rain.
Because warm water can help dilate blood vessels so that oxygen flow becomes smoother, it can relieve headaches brought on by rain. Tense muscles can also be relaxed by warm water. Consequently, your body will feel more at ease and relaxed and will sleep better.
Making a cup of hot tea to neutralise body temperature can also help relieve headaches from being hit by rain. It has been demonstrated that a variety of teas can ease headaches caused by migraines, headaches, or even vertigo.
So, what can you do if you’re one of those people who always get a headache when it rains? Here are a few Ayurvedic remedies that may help:
- Stay warm and dry: When the weather is damp and cold, it’s important to keep your body warm and dry. Wear warm clothing, use an umbrella or raincoat, and avoid getting soaked in the rain.
- Drink warm fluids: Drinking warm fluids like tea or soup can help balance the Vata dosha and provide relief from headaches.
- Practice self-massage: Massaging your head, neck, and shoulders with warm oil can help soothe headaches and balance the Vata dosha.
- Practice yoga and meditation: Yoga and meditation can help calm the mind and balance the doshas, which can lead to relief from headaches.
In conclusion, while rain itself may not be the direct cause of headaches, changes in barometric pressure and imbalances in the Vata dosha can contribute to this problem. By understanding the Ayurvedic perspective on this issue and practising natural remedies, you can find relief from rain-induced headaches and enjoy the rainy season without any pain. So, next time it rains, grab a cup of warm tea and snuggle up with a good book – your head will thank you!
