Tension Headache Cure With Homeopathy

Tension Headache Cure with HOMEOPATHY

Dr Ajay Yadav

Tension headaches are very common, affecting up to 90% of the general population in city. Unfortunately, they're also among the most neglected and difficult types
of headaches to treat. Pain is caused by tightness (contraction) of your neck,
and scalp muscles. With a tension headache, the pain often starts at the back
of your head and moves forward, so that it eventually includes your neck,
scalp, and head. It’s often described as feeling like you have a tight band
across your head. It may be caused by staying in one position for a long time,
such as in reading, using a computer, or playing video games smoking high
music. It may be also caused by stress, but sometimes there is no obvious
cause. If your headaches happen 15 or more days in a month for several months,
they are considered chronic tension headaches. If they occur less frequently,
they are called episodic tension headaches.

If we are talking gross level medicine then skullcap works great for headaches especially when associated with painful women's moon cycles and St. John's Wort Oil will sometimes help out here too.

dear dr gina and claudia i must say clasical approch is always good but what u do when patient come with headach in acute condition do u will take 2hr case and than u priscribe?
it will give more headache what i can see and patient never comes back to u
in acute there we just need to find cause and go ahed with prescription like theraps and other approch
i dont think if we start taking core in acute case of u take case of 2 hr or 1 hr in headache ?

I manage most of the acute headaches with tinctures. If the economy is not deeply affected, why should we go deep. Tinctures like Coffea, Usnea Barb, Sanguinaria, Scuttelaria, Iris vers etc. can be given on the basis of presenting symptoms. If the positive response is temporary, then go for a detailed case taking and the application of the most similar drug in higher potency.

Claudia posted :"In the classical approach, I keep treating the individual, each headache, albeit possibly very similar in the symptom picture may have a very different core sensation at its base - therefore all we can do is speculate until we see the actual individual patient and get to his/her core. Let's stick to being unprejudiced observers please, and stay true to homeopathic philosophy......................................................."
My reply: Yes So true,Good point. What it comes down to is that these suggestions are words thrown in the wind,none can be useable if its nOT THE WELL INDICATED remedy.

So true,So true

Dr Amir,
Do not you think that medicine will change from patient to patient.
Comment by Christina Richmond on May 7, 2010 at 10:20am
Hi Dr. Ajay,

I would add two more but one is more a constitutional treatment... Puls for right sided, occipital, changeable symptoms and better slow motion and open air. Cimicifuga for hormonal migraines especially when patient has a history of headaches starting at birth of a child and if there was a lot of blood loss.
Thanks for your effort on this. It's a good article. Will you be publishing somewhere? If on a blog I'd be happy to tweet it out and reblog it if you like.
Thanks and blessings, Christina
