I have a headache after the Choco Bliss. How come? What can I do?

It’s quite common for people to experience headaches after an Ayahuasca or Choco Bliss or other psychedelic ceremony. Very annoying! How come? What can you do about it? can you take a painkiller?

How comes that I have a headache after a plant medicine ceremony?

I can’t say for sure why you have a headache after your Choco Bliss Ceremony. There is a lot going on in your system when you do a plant medicine ceremony.

It is not only at Choco Bliss ceremonies that you have a headache. This can also happen after an Ayahuasca Ceremony or other plant medicines.

One of the hallmarks of psychedelics is that it creates new connections in your brain. An energetic deep operation takes place. This could be the reason for the headache.

How to prevent it?

One reason could be the food you took in preparing for your ceremony or that you didn’t drink enough during the ceremony.

What to do about it?

First, drink enough water during the ceremony. I wouldn’t drink any other drinks on your trip. Afterwards you can of course drink herbal tea, healthy juices or something else that is healthy.

You can also stop drinking coffee in your preparation and not take any food that contains tyramine.
