I found the reading on psychological factors and health to be very interested especially the section on headaches and the different symptoms that women have with her menstrual to be very informative and helpful in my own personal life since I myself suffer from migraines and severe menstruation cramps to the point where I myself have to take time off from work due to the severity of my condition. I have learned a great deal for my personal use on the reason why I suffer with the two conditions and how to resolve the issue or at least reduce the stress factor that may be causing the headaches and menstrual cramps. This is the reason why I chose the two topics that I will be discussing in my essay. In my essay I will be talking about headaches the two different types of headaches which are muscle tension headaches and migraines. I will also discuss the problems associated with menstrual cycles and ways to relieve the discomfort a person my experience with both topics and why the person may be experiencing the discomfort. The Multi-factorial:

The Multi-factorial is the belief that health and illness comes from a combination of factors such as the biological makeup, a person psychological makeup, a person culture or economic living and his or her interactions with others. Physicians have determined that family history and economic conditions plays a role in a person mental and physical health. The multi-factorial uses genetics and lifestyles to determine if an illness is psychological or not.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
