HEADACHE DUE TO ACIDITY/CONSTIPATION-

At the time of constipation the uneliminated and undigested food gets putrefied and it releases toxic materials, acids, etc. This toxins and gases gets released into the blood and causes irritation in nerves and nerve cells mainly of head. This irritation of nerve cells inturn leads to headache.
Over eating of oily and cooked foods leads to indigestion which inturn causes severe headache. This is mainly seen in feast and parties where people eat heavily and mostly at irregular time which is accompanied by nausea and vomitting.
Further various diseases and medications taken also release toxins in the blood which is also a cause of headache. Paint, petroleum products inhaled by us by breathing also enters the blood and this can also cause headache. Intake of excessive acidic food like sugar makes the blood acidic and produces the headache as described before because of irritation of nerve cells.
This toxemic headache pain is felt normally all over the head region or in some cases just in frontal region.
