Herbal Remedies

Long before Western medicine showed up on the scene, people used plants to treat themselves for various ailments. Many of these herbal remedies are surprisingly effective, having been shown to work over centuries of use. In many cases, their effectiveness is now being proven to the Western world in scientific studies. Some of the herbs commonly used to treat headaches include:

  • Feverfew - This herb is a small relative of the sunflower that looks much like a miniature daisy. It has been used as an anti-inflammatory for centuries in traditional medicine. Feverfew has been shown in several studies to be effective in both prevention and treatment of migraines. To use feverfew to stop a migraine, take 100-300 mg of the herb. If you are allergic to yarrow, chamomile, or ragweed, please avoid feverfew because you may be allergic to it, also.

  • Willow Bark - Willow bark has been used for centuries to treat pain and inflammation - it is the original source of aspirin, and is equally effective. However, willow bark appears to be less likely to upset your stomach than aspirin. Since aspirin can cause Reye’s syndrome in children under 16, it is advised to also avoid giving willow bark to them.
  • Valerian, skullcap, and lemon balm - Used separately or in combination, these herbs possess both sedative and anti-spasmodic properties. They can help relax you and help to de-constrict your arteries, restoring proper blood flow to your brain. These herbs are available in the form of capsules, tea and tinctures. Effective for tension headaches and possibly for migraines.

  • Cayenne - A cayenne pepper solution can be used as a nose spray to help relieve a cluster headache. However, this treatment can cause pain and a burning sensation in the nose. Talk to a naturopath or doctor to find a suitable preparation.
  • Ginger - Ginger may be effective in treating migraine headaches. There was a case study where a woman who suffered from chronic migraines began taking ginger at the first sign of aura and was able to head off her headache. Ginger has anti-inflammatory properties and is known to help fight off nausea. There currently have not been any standardized experiments done on ginger, but to see if it works for you, take 500 to 600 milligrams of powdered ginger in water.

  • Ginkgo Biloba - Although this herb is better-known as a memory enhancer, it can also help stop migraine pain. Ginkgo widens blood vessels and helps improve circulation, keeping a normal amount of blood and oxygen flowing to the brain.
    • Coffee - Coffee contains caffeine, which has been shown effective in treating headaches. However, be aware that many over-the-counter drugs for headaches, such as Excedrin, also contain caffeine.
