Homeopathy for headaches
Headaches are quite common for some people.
Some of us experience a headache occasionally and most of us will have suffered from a headache sometimes in our lives. Headaches are one of the most common complains.
Headaches are felt in the head but neither the brain tissue or the skull is responsible for that pain because they do not have nerves that register the pain. However, the blood vessels that are located in the neck and head together with the surrounding tissue and the nerves that run around the spinal cord can produce pain that activates a headache.
Headaches can be caused by a series of factors and understanding why we are experiencing the headache, is the key to get the best results with homeopathic remedies.
In homeopathy, we have remedies for inflammation, circulatory problems, hormones etc, and understanding what system in your body is causing the head pain, is essential to find a homeopathic remedy for headache or a combination that will help to clear it.
I often get enquiries for my patient's asking for a suggestion for homeopathic remedies for headaches and my answer is always the same-where is your headache coming from? What is the reason why you are experiencing this headache?
Let me give you an example to help you understand this.
A not long time ago, my youngest daughter complained of a headache.
She was just coming down with a viral infection and she was feeling a bit under the weather. I asked her what the headache felt like and she described it as bursting or pressure inside of the head in the frontal area. Not really understanding what was causing this headache and not having much information, I asked her to take a couple of remedies with no relief.
After a few hours, the headache continued to increase and at that point, I could hear her talking very slightly nasal, although she reported that there was no congestion in that area at all.
I thought that this may be a possibility for her headache as other remedies were not providing relief so I asked her to take Sanguiaria 200+Bell3c as per the Banerji Protocol and that took the headache away.
This confirmed that the headache was coming from sinus inflammation as this remedy has an affinity to the vasomotor of the mucous membranes.
So as you can see, understanding what is driving your headache will help you to choose a more specific remedy for your headache.
