Headaches are very common and their impact can range from mild to disabling. Knowing the kind of headache is the first step to being able to treat it correctly, and more importantly, one step closer to relief. Headaches are divides in to two groups. Primary headaches include migraine, cluster headaches and tension headaches. Secondary headaches may be caused by problems elsewhere in head and neck. Homoeopathic care can be appropriate for occasional mild to moderate headaches, brought on by obvious causes such as anxiety, lack of sleep, consumption of alcohol, overwork, etc. Of course, in addition to selecting the appropriate homoeopathic remedy, it’s also important to address the cause. Most headaches are either due to strain on the muscles in the neck or head or congestion of the blood vessels that supply the neck and head. 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. Homoeopathy is considered by many to be an excellent treatment for acute and chronic headaches, and even has a track record for permanent relief.
