Let’s talk about how to prevent headaches while flying in an airplane. 1 in 12 people suffer from headaches when they fly.

Prostaglandins are a group of compounds that increase when you have inflammation. An increase of prostaglandins can cause the blood vessels in the brain to expand, leading to a headache.

Two things can cause headaches while flying:

1. The change in air pressure during take-off and landing affects the sinus cavities leading to a headache.

2. There is a spike in cortisol, which can lead to headaches and anxiety.

Ways to prevent headaches while flying:

• Completely relax while flying

• Take adaptogens (herbal remedies to help you relax)

• Practice controlled breathing

• Start fasting

• Drink plenty of fluids with electrolytes
