Cluster Headaches Making Life miserable ? Homeopathy has a Effective Solution

Homeopathic  Remedies for Cluster Headaches

Homeopathic Remedies for Headache

Homeopathic Remedies for Headache

Severe headache not only slows down a person, but affects his or her general outlook towards life. Severe headache that is typically present around one eye (periorbital headache) and appears in clusters (in a group) lasting for weeks or months is referred to as Cluster Headache. A person experiences frequent headache, which is followed by a period of rest when there is no headache. The headache during the cluster period is mostly noticed at precisely the same hour each day for several weeks or even months. There are cases in which episodes of Cluster Headache show a seasonal occurrence in which the cluster appears in a specific season. Cluster Headache, thus, has two phases. The first phase refers to the period during which bouts of headache appear frequently, and then there is the second phase of pain-free period during which there is no headache. Homeopathic remedies are very beneficial and provide complete relief from Cluster Headaches. Made of completely safe natural substances with zero side effects, Homeopathic remedies for cluster headache provide relief from acute pain and work to remove the disorder from its root so there is no recurrence of Cluster Headache.

Symptoms of Cluster Headache

The typical and foremost symptom of headache around or in the eye is eye discharge, swelling or redness of eyes, drooping of eyelids, nasal discharge or congestion, and sweating of face. In a few persons, the pain also settles in temporal region of head. The accompanying symptoms are always present on the same side on which the headache appears. Restlessness is also experienced by patients.

Homeopathic Treatment for Cluster Headache

The Homeopathic treatment for cluster headache aims at two aspects in treating patients. The first is to provide relief from acute pain and the second is to remove the condition from its root with the most beneficial natural Homeopathic remedies. With the use of Homeopathic medicines, the intensity and frequency of Cluster Headache reduces and with the long-term use of appropriate Homeopathic remedies, Cluster Headache is extracted from its root.

Top Homeopathic Remedies for Cluster Headache

Cedron: Best Homeopathic medicine for Cluster Headache at precisely same hour

Cedron is considered the top natural Homeopathic medicine that will provide immidiate relief from Cluster Headaches. Cedron is of great help when the main symptom is severe pain around the eye at a particular hour. Periodicity in occurrence of periorbital pain is essentially marked. This pain may radiate into the ear. In other persons, the pain around the eye may radiate to the temples or back of head. Watering from eyes with burning may also present itself with eye pain. Night aggravation of pain is also noted. Although the pain may appear on any side, the pain over the left side of eye is felt more often for prescribing Homeopathic remedy Cedron.

Belladona: Homeopathic medicine for Cluster Headache with redness or swelling of eyes

Belladona is the ideal natural Homeopathic medicine for Cluster Headache with redness or swelling of eyes and flushing of face. The characteristic feature for using this Homeopathic remedy is deep pain in the eyes, mostly throbbing or shooting in nature, with congestion and redness of eyes. The eyes also show protrusion. Photophobia i.e. intolerance to light or worsening of pain from light may also be noted. In most cases, lying down worsens the pain and tight bandage or pressure seems to provide relief. The sudden onset of a violent headache is also a marked feature. The attacks appear suddenly and with intensity and leave with the same suddenness.

Spigelia: Homeopathic medicine for left-side Cluster Headache

Spigelia is a natural Homeopathic medicine which is very beneficial in treating the left-side Cluster Headache. Its use is recommended when there is a severe violent pain around the eye and in the eye socket specifically on the left side. The eyeballs too appear large. The pain can be of varying nature like digging, boring, shooting, violent, throbbing or stitching pain, with a feeling of needles pricking in the eye on the left side. The main worsening factor given by a patient for using Homeopathic remedy Spigelia is pain in eye on moving or turning the eye. A few persons may also describe noise or touching the eye as the most aggravating factors. Rest in most cases seems to relieve the pain. Along with pain, redness of eyes with sensitivity to light and dropping of eyes also show their presence. Another marked feature for using Spigelia is occurrence of pain around the left eye in morning either on rising or while lying in bed. A characteristic relief from pain by washing with cold water is a peculiar symptom guiding the use of Homeopathic medicine Spigelia.

Sanguinaria Can: Homeopathic medicine for right-side Cluster Headache

For treating right-side Cluster Headache, natural Homeopathic medicine Sanguinaria Can is the ideal remedy. The use of Homeopathic medicine Sanguinaria Can is considered in all those cases of Cluster Headache where the pain settles over or around the right eye. A bursting sensation with a feeling as if the eyes will be pressed out is very marked. Periodicity of pain is noted mostly with beginning of pain in morning and continuing till evening. The most aggravating factors in pain to be kept in mind where Sanguinaria Can is applicable are motion and light. And sleep and lying down still are the soothing factors. Characteristic relief from pain may also be brought about by walking in open air for some patients needing Sanguinaria Can. Along with pain over right eye, there is a profuse watering of eyes. The eyes are also very congested, and red with burning sensations. The face, especially cheeks, shows flushing. In a few persons, nasal congestion is a prominent feature.

Homeopathic remedies for Cluster Headache on left-side 

Spigelia is a top natural Homeopathic medicine for left-side cluster headache. The other useful Homeopathic medicines like Cedron, Oreodaphne Californica, Bryonia and Epiphegus are amongst the best natural remedies for cluster headaches specially on left side.Cedron is the best Homeopathic remedy when pain around or above the left eye appears at precisely the same hour of day. Oreodaphne Californica is of great help when pain in left eye is accompanied by dropping of eyelids. In most cases, the person has a need to close the eye to get relief. Light and noise seem to worsen the pain. Perfect silence is what is needed to get relief. Homeopathic medicine Bryonia is the ideal remedy when the main feature to be considered is pain in left-side eye worsening by the slightest of motion. The pain is bursting in nature with a sensation as if the eyes will be pressed out. Epiphegus is the Homeopathic remedy of great help and can provide immediate relief from cluster headaches when the pain is located in the left temple region. The most peculiar and characteristic feature for using Epiphegus is appearance of pain when a person engages or exerts in any activity apart from the daily routine activities, be it physical or mental activity. After getting a good sleep, the pain is relieved.

Homeopathic treatment for Cluster Headache on right side

For dealing with right-side Cluster Headache, the best natural Homeopathic medicine is Sanguinaria Can. The other very effective Homeopathic medicines for right-side Cluster Headache are Magnesium Phos, Chelidonium, Silicea and Iris Versicolor. Magnesium Phos is among the top Homeopathic remedies for right-side supraorbital pain. The main indication for using this Homeopathic medicine is relief from pain by heat applications. Chelidoinum is another beneficial Homeopathic remedy when profuse watering from the eyes accompanies the pain in right eye. The pressure application seems to be relieving. The pupils too are contracted. Homeopathic remedy Silicea is the ideal mode of treatment when pain that has settled over the right eye worsens from a slight cold air exposure, and the person gets relief by wrapping up warmly. Iris is the best Homeopathic medicine when pain in right temple or supraorbital region gets worse from taking rest and motion provides relief. Vomiting or nausea may also show prominence with pain for using Iris Versicolor.

Homeopathic remedies for Cluster Headache as per periodicity 

When selecting the best natural  remedies for Cluster Headache, a precise note is made of the time of the recurrence of pain. Homeopathy has very efficient medicines for control of bouts of Cluster Headache returning at a particular time of day — it may be every day, every alternate day, every week, or every month. The time of periodicity is to be added with the other modalities of increase or decrease of pain to select the best Homeopathic remedy as per the case.

  3. Elaine Bales says:

    I have constant headaches that began on only the right side of my face and head all over along with a bad ear ache, runny nose and watering eyes. Although at the time the time I had the runny nose et al, I had recently gotten over the flu. After about a week the pain in my head and ear and eyes (mostly ear) was so severe I went to ER. I was given something by IV that calmed it down and was there until 3:20 AM doing a eKg and a cat scan and determined I had no stroke or bleeding vessels. Felt better but pain was still present but no so badly. The day after the pain in the same area became so severe I went to ER again and given IV and it calmed down. They took another CT scan. Dr. told me that I had cluster headaches and there was a tear of a nerve in my neck. He referred me back to my GP.

    The GP told me she thought I had an impinged nerve after reading all the reports from ER. Then I got an MRI and found out that I indeed had a pinged nerve somewhere in neck area, as well as, some bulging vertebra that is mild. Going to begin physical therapy and shot of some kind at a. neurologist office soon. My doctor gave me gabperpentin which did help but pain still there and so now I have this and tramadol. Much much better but still there is pressure and my ear was not infected at the time I was in ER even thought it hurt very much at the time. Can’t turn my neck to the right although now with the meds from GP I can turn it but not liberally.

    So, what I want to know is what natural meds do you recommend and what Homeopathic doctor you can refer me to in Alaska? I live in Anchorage. I can’t go to a chiropractor said the GP until the neurologist looks at the problem, because the neck has a tear and it could get worse with a chiropractor although she thought chiropractors were good guys and said she has gone to them before for backaches.

    WHAT HERBS DO YOU RECOMMEND. THEY THINK THEY ARE CLUSTER HEADACHES AND SUPER PAINFUL, AND SHE DOES NOT WANT TO SUGGEST SURGERY UNTIL ALL NON-INVASIVE APPROACHES. What makes me afraid is that a neurologist is also a neurosurgeon. I am afraid of shots and wonder if there is a homeopath that can give me shots that are not steroids?

    There are bulging in-between the bones and osteoporosis arthritis showing up in spine. My back actually doesn’t both me that much, just when I am in the garden and bending down too much. I am 200 lbs and she said I need to loose some weight and referred me to a nutritionist so my knee doesn’t ache from time to time when I squat. What is your opinion and I am sorry I rambled on and on but I am 63 and taking care of my sister’s grandchildren and cannot afford to die or be ill on them. They are 8 and 11. They have no one else but me and my husband and he has skin cancer. Pls advise.

  5. Hello Dr. Sharma

    I have been experiencing cluster headaches since more than 10 years. I get them every other year, sometimes every year. Sharp pain behind the right eyebrow and right eye with eye turning red and watering. It’s always on the right side. I also have kerotoconus on my right eye, not sure if it’s related to my headache.
    Medrol dose pack steroid helped last few times in breaking the cycle, but this time it’s not effective. I had medrol dose (starts with 6 tablets and tapers down) 3 times already but headaches keep coming back.

    Could you suggest how homeopathy could help in both immediate relief as well as long term preventive medication.

    • Gurbasant Singh says:

      Hi Sir,
      I have been suffering from cluster headaches for the last 15 years. It happens on the right side of the temple on the side of the right eye. Happens once a year and then lasts for one month. Happens either on alternate days of that month or daily. Pain is excruciating and getting worse with time. Also last for 2~3 hours every time. Water comes from right eye and also right side of nose but not that much. I tried to press it really hard . Light does not bother me. It does not let me sit or lie at one point. Also for few days it will happen at the same time but then change the time for another few days. Also happens many times when I am sleep during night. Month also changes. Earlier it used to start around Sept/Oct not it happened in March. Did not happen last year. I have taken Sangunaria , Cedron and other medicines over the years. They work some times and at other times they don’t work at all. Sangunaria worked last time. This time it is not working. Please suggest some remedy.

    Dear Dr Sharma:

    I am suffering from left sided cluster headaches since last 2 years. I am on Lithium Carbonate, Calaptan. There is relief, but lately the headaches have started reappearing despite regular medications. As the CH have become chronic allopathic medicines cannot be taken forever.

    I am looking for options in homeopathy to control the CH and lead a normal life.

  8. Hedy Reial says:

    I had cluster headaches already so many years I even cant count it. Last 2 or 3 years it become more aggressive, more periodic and more painful. It can last two-three days while I cant do anything at all. I am totally out of life. Only ambulance can bring me help during these periods.
    It begins during night, approx 3 AM. Swelling right eye.

    Second version of pain is more soft and lasting week or three weeks. It starts 2 or 3 PM. Right side headache. I can eat and work etc. But it kills softly and make me nervous. It worsens from a cold air exposure. No swelling on eyes.

    Appreciate your help.

  10. Dear Doctor,

    I am having this cluster headache issue from quite some time, to be precise last 8 years. Earlier duration and intensity were shorter and less. However it grew over period of time. I have taken all possible medicines including allopathy, Ayurvedic and homeopathy. It occurs once in a year. The only break I got when I took homeopathy medicine in India and was mostly out of India (Middle East) for 1 year. I saw Dr. KPS Dhama in Delhi at that time. The only bad change in my lifestyle was addition of smoking habit. However, in recent past I have controlled it and curbing it. I started running and increased exercise to improve respiratory immunity as well. This time it occurred after 1.5 years however the intensity is same as old extreme one. It happens mostly in weather change when mucus formation increases. Sudden stoppage in smoking also increase the choking of nose and increase the problem. I am struggling this extreme situation. All the symptoms are exact match as described in initial paragraphs of this article. Soliciting your advice on this matter. Appreciate your help.

  15. Lawrence Jennes says:

    I have been experiencing what I believe are cluster headaches for a while now. Headaches are always overnight ad wake me up every 2-3 hours. Very rare do I experience them during the day. Always on right side of my head. Any suggestions for relief?

  16. My husband has been suffering from cluster headaches for the last six years and they occur anytime of day or night lately. He used to be symptom free during work hours but this is not the case anymore. The pain is so unbearable and sometimes lasts for up to 12 hours he used to take sumatriptin nasal spray but we no longer have insurance to cover it and the results were unreliable. I need some dosages and directions for the listed homeopathic remedies soon. My husband is tired of being in pain and has recently started talking about suicide to be rid of the pain. Any help you could provide as soon as possible would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you
