Headaches and Migraines

Headaches can range in severity from a dull thudding in the temples when you are tired or anxious to a frightening, intense pain. They may be triggered by lifestyle factors, musculo-skeletal disorders or stress, and it is important to find and remedy the underlying causes.

Migraines affect at least one person in ten, and are far more disabling than Headaches. They are often confined to one side of the head, and may be preceded or accompanied by visual disturbances eg. flashing lights or hallucinatory auras, pins and needles, nausea and sensitivity to odours, light or noise.

Migraines tend to run in families and can be triggered by the same factors that cause headaches or by sensitivity to particular substances.

Tip: try to get plenty of fresh air, exercise and sleep, eat sensibly and avoid caffeine. Learn a relaxation exercise or stress management technique.

The following treatments can be used to treat both Headaches and Migraines:

Aromatherapy, Homeopathy, Acupuncture.
