Quote: "If the headache presents after grief, sorrow, emotion or worry, the sufferer will find relief from Ignatia 30, named after St. Ignatius."

The subject of headaches is a vast one, but it needn't be elusive. Homeopathy has a reputation for addressing headaches squarely without side effects and worsening of the person in general.

The subject of headaches is a vast one, but it needn't be elusive. Homeopathy has a reputation for addressing headaches squarely without side effects and worsening of the person in general.

The first step in bringing the person to a better state of being is to stop taking analgesics. Tylenol, aspirin and their derivatives admittedly remove the pain, but only to suppress the illness and throw it into the future with greater vitality. Homeopathy, on the other hand, is reputed for not only relieving the headaches, but eliminating them permanently for the future. Homeopathy addresses all illness on an individual basis, so headache relief needs to be addressed in the same way.

Read through the following remedies and choose the best one for your situation. Then take a dose every hour until relief is sustained. When relief is at hand, stop. Let's look at the top remedies for this malady:

The first remedy to consider for headaches that are in the face is Kali Bichromium30.

These headaches present above or between the eyebrows or start over one eye, then travel to the other or reside at the root of the nose. These are the headaches of a sinus nature that respond to a barometric pressure change and are made worse on stooping. If this cluster of symptoms exists, not only will the remedy eliminate the present pain, but will make the next similar headache a longer distance away from the present one and less painful . Eventually, and not too far distant in the future, the pain will not appear at all.

For headaches that come after eating rich foods, such as ice-cream, the best remedy is Pulsatilla 30.

These headaches often affect women and girls and particularly those of a more feminine nature. Another remedy useful for the after effects of eating too many rich foods is Nux vomica 30. It is often due to indigestion, constipation or too many laxatives or other medicaments. This remedy should be taken twice daily for a few days until the pain disappears. Now, unless more drugs are ingested, the pain will not return.

If the headache presents after grief, sorrow, emotion or worry, the sufferer will find relief from Ignatia 30, named after St. Ignatius.

Consider the remedy Belladonna 30 when the headache is as a result of too much sun, when the face is red and flushed, with throbbing in the head and particularly in the veins and arteries.

Gelsemium 30 is your remedy when a headache is brought on by anticipatory anxiety. This can be common with children who are afraid of being on stage for a school play or for an adult who has to appear in front of a crowd. It is infallible for the headaches of ministers, courtroom lawyers and politicians.

The headaches of the gravest degree, however, are those called migraines. This is a category in itself and often requires expert homeopathic care. I find that the most common remedy to offer relief is Iris 30. These headaches are those that come on periodically, such as every week or month and are ushered in with ocular disturbances, such as blurred vision. There is often nausea and vomiting with throbbing, shooting pain in the forehead and a profuse amount of saliva.. There can also be pulsing pain through out the body and include burning in the anus with straining and bearing down.

This is but a small sampling of the most valuable remedies in the homeopath's arsenal, but an excellent place to start for the novice. After you feel better, consider homeopathy for all of your family's ailments. Purchase a kit of remedies, homeopathy books, CD's and take courses to learn as much as you can about this powerful method. Then when everything is put in order, prepare for a short duration of pain when you use the most intelligent medicine on the earth....Homeopathy.
