Alternative Answers To Headaches

Complementary and alternative medicine is used for treatment of headaches where conventional medical treatments fail.

Headache only recently began to receive attention from the pharmaceutical industry and organized medicine. Selective serotonin-agonist drugs like sumatriptan have revolutionized treatment of migraines and dramatically changed the lives of millions of people. However, even these "designer" drugs do not work for at least 30% of patients.

Acupuncture, biofeedback, nutritional therapies which avoid food triggers, vitamin supplements of magnesium and B-2, herbal remedies, aromatherapy, homeopathy, and physical approaches which include aerobic exercise and massage therapy are discussed as alternative treatments to headache relief.
