Headaches are very common and their impact can range from mild to disabling. Knowing the kind of headache you have is the first step to being able to treat it correctly, and more importantly, one step closer to relief. Homeopathic home care can be appropriate for occasional mild to moderate headaches, brought on by obvious causes such as anxiety, lack of sleep, alcohol, overwork, etc. Of course, in addition to selecting the appropriate homeopathic remedy, it's also important to address the cause. Most headaches are either due to strain on the muscles in the neck or head (muscle tension) or congestion of the blood vessels that supply the neck and head (vascular). Sufferers will often use different homeopathic remedies for headaches that are acute, as opposed to a single remedy for the duration of chronic headaches. A remedy that persistently relieves a headache can sometimes induce permanent remission. Homeopathy is considered by many to be an excellent treatment for acute and chronic headaches, and even has a track record for permanent relief.
