Headache

Headache affects everyone at one time or another.  Although it is a nuisance, it does not require medical attention in most cases.  However, if a person experiences a change in the pattern of headaches, e.g. from rare to frequent, from mild to severe, or suffers from cluster or migraine headaches with severe and debilitating pain, medical diagnosis will be needed.

The most common type of headaches is tension headache.  Tension headaches are caused by muscle tension in the neck, shoulders and head as a result of uncomfortable body position, stress or fatigue.  The person would feel tight pressure around the head.  Migraine headaches are more serious headaches.  A person with migraine headaches feels intense, throbbing pain on one side of the head, sometimes both sides, and may experience visual, neurological and gastrointestinal symptoms.  Cluster headaches are less common than tension headaches and migraines.   They usually start suddenly,  come in groups and are extremely painful.

Headaches are usually treated by OTC analgesics.  Severe headaches can be controlled by prescription drugs.   Eating a healthy balanced diet, avoiding foods that may trigger headache attacks (MSG, aspartame, caffeinated beverages), maintaining a good body posture when working, using acupressure and acupuncture can also help to prevent and relieve headaches.

 

Food supplements for headaches:

5-HTP

A study has shown that 5-HTP provides significant improvement to people suffering from migraines.  It reduces the duration and intensity of migraine attack.  Another study shows that taking 5-HTP can reduce chronic daily headaches.  5-HTP may boost endorphin levels by increasing serotonin.  Endorphin is our body's natural pain reliever.

 

Feverfew

Feverfew helps to relieve migraine attack.  Feverfew contains parthenolides, compounds that prevent the constriction of brain arteries.  You may take feverfew as a tea or as capsules of freeze dried leaf. 

 

Ginger

Ginger is a safe herb to use for headache.  It helps ease headache pain and nausea.

 

Passionflower

A gentle relaxing herb for tension headache.  Take the tincture or steep 1/2 teaspoon of dried herb in 1 cup of hot water for 10-15 minutes and drink the tea.

 

Valerian

A stronger herb than passionflower.  It is sedating, relieves tension and improves sleep quality.
