Imagine that you are having the best day of your life. An outing followed by lunch at your favourite place – you are bound to be sleeping with a smile, right? Instead, you lay your head down with a throbbing headache, making you super sensitive to lights and sounds around you. There’s a constant hammering inside your head, getting worse with every passing minute.
What went wrong there?
Headaches can be triggered by the smallest of things – traffic jams, TV blaring in the background, a long day, or simply, lack of sleep or food.
Headaches have the potential to get the better of you, you’d just become so irritable, frustrated and sensitive to everything around, that co-existing could become difficult for your family and friends for the fear of bothering you and making you lose your temper. People develop headaches because of many reasons; stress, depression, anxiety, heat, or even an issue with the vision, to name a few. It could possibly mean something even more serious than these, sometimes.

Headaches are categorized in two types by the International Headache Society depending on its causes. Primary headaches, that do not have an underlying condition causing the pain and secondary headaches that are caused due to underlying conditions.

Primary headaches are caused due to the overactivity of, or problems with the pain-sensitive parts like the blood vessels, muscles, or nerves of the head and neck, or they could also be a result of changes in chemical activity in the brain.

How does homeopathy work for headaches?
Homeopathy has an excellent scope in the treatment of headaches because it is an individualistic approach to healing, It treats the root cause and not just the symptoms, over a period of time, it also treats only the symptoms you face not the general umbrella symptoms of a headache. Homeopathy treatments are custom made for your condition.
People generally depend on painkillers for years together before coming to us for treatment. Conventional or allopathic treatment involves prescribing painkillers and anti inflammatory medicines which give temporary relief from pain without addressing the root cause or triggers.
When we start treating a patient with headache,we take the entire case in detail as any small factor responsible if missed can hinder progress. Once entire case is taken,we study the case and prescribe medicines for a month.
Along with the regular medicines, we give an SOS medicine to take in an emergency as the whole point is to avoid painkillers which do more harm than good. Initially the frequency of headaches and intensity of pain reduce and over a period of time, they will stop.
The best part is homeopathic medication does not bear side effects because the medicines are completely natural, which saves you a lot of stress of acquiring a new condition in the quest of getting rid of one. Homeopathy also thins the chances of recurrence, because it addresses the underlying imbalance.
