Herbs for headaches can be very helpful for this debilitating problem. Find out what causes them and how to prevent or cure them by using natural headache treatments.
I used to suffer them almost every day. Then I met this herbal lady who told me…
"This problem is your body’s way of telling you something is wrong. Find the root cause and correct it".
So I did some research and found out they are most often caused by stress, tiredness, environmental factors, poor posture, caffeine, alcohol, drugs, food allergy, eyestrain, sinusitis, or low blood sugar.
I found a couple of things causing them. One was sinusitis. I started taking a wonderful herbal combination called ALJ to clean my respiratory system (doesn't shoot my blood pressure through the roof like over-the counter meds). I very seldom suffer with this problem anymore.
Here are some effective herbs for headaches to ease your pain while you work on fixing what started it in the first place:
Make a sandwich...
Researchers are studying the benefits of the herb feverfew for treating chronic aches and migraines. Ginger is an effective herb for headaches because the leaves of this plant contain a substance that relaxes the blood vessels in your brain.
Studies show that patients who eat a few fresh feverfew leaves (can put on a sandwich) or take feverfew capsules everyday have fewer and less severe migraines.(Chewing the leaf can cause mouth ulcers in some people, if this occurs, use the capsules).
*Note: Most essential oils should not be used during pregnancy...Please read labels before using.
Rub a small dab on each temple or the back of the neck or forehead depending on where you are hurting. It has a cool feeling as it soaks in.
If you face this issue frequently, it could be a signal that you are low on some important vitamins and minerals.
