Homeopathic Medicines For headache
A moderate to severe kind of headache, accompanied by symptoms like vomiting, nausea and extreme sensitivity to light and sound, may be the first signs of a typical migraine attack. The pain may remain confined to one portion of the head or affect both the sides. At times it may become unbearable, hence throwing an individual out of action for hours, or even days together. The migraine pain can interfere with the daily activities of a person and tends to worsen with extended physical activity. With symptoms so severe, all a person can think about is finding a dark, quiet corner for lying down. Homeopathic medicines for headaches can be a big boon for those who suffer from recurrent headaches. Homeopathic remedies not only treat the acute situation of the headache but also treat the chronicity of the headaches. This means that homeopathic medicines used for the treatment of Headaches treat the headaches in a permanent fashion.
The occurrence of migraine has been witnessed more among women than men. On an average, about 17 per cent of the women go through the agonizing pain of migraine while the count among men is not even half — 6 per cent. In a few cases, these painful headaches are preceded or accompanied by a sensory forewarning (aura), such as flashes of light, blind spots or itching in the arm or leg. Though migraine attack generally lasts from four to 72 hours, the frequency with which headaches occur may vary from person to person.
Most of the people have migraines sans auras, which were previously termed as common migraines. Some, however, experience migraines accompanied by auras, previously called classic migraines. If falling in the second category, a person is more likely to have an aura about 15 to 30 minutes before the headache begins. While going through an aura, one is susceptible to seeing sparkling flashes of light, perceive dazzling zigzag lines in his or her field of vision, experience gradually spreading blind spots in vision and at times, though rarely, experience weakness or language and speech problems.
Whether or not one has auras, a person suffering with migraine may have one or more sensations of premonition (prodrome) several hours or a day or so before the headache actually strikes. These sensations include thoughts of joy or intense energy, cravings for sweet stuff, drowsiness, thirst, irritability or depression.
EARLY INCIDENCE First symptoms of migraines start to appear in childhood, adolescence or early adulthood and may become less frequent and less intense as one grows older. Apart from physical suffering, severe headaches often result in poor attendance in schools and regular visits to a doctor, besides leading to loss in work time for the worried parents. Though migraines among children do not last long, the pain could be disabling and might be accompanied by nausea, vomiting, lightheadedness and increased sensitivity to light. In children, migraine is more likely to occur on both sides of the head. Notably, kids may also have all of the signs and symptoms of a migraine — nausea, vomiting, increased sensitivity to light and sound — but no head pain. These “abdominal migraines” could be particularly more difficult to make out. But, significant is that some of the medications that are effective for adults work for children as well. Belladonna as a Homeopathic medicine for congestive headaches Belladonna is one of the leading homoeo-medicine for treating migraine it is indicated when the headaches start from the back of the head and settle over the eye. The right side is the more affected and the pain is of throbbing and pounding type which gets worse from light , noise and even slight jerk or movement.

It is also suited when the head pain is relieved by lying down and by sleep. Iris is most indicated when there is great deal of nausea and vomiting associated with headaches. Epiphegus as a Homeopathic Medicine For exertion Headaches I have in my experience found Epiphegus to be a great remedy for migraine in Women and is indicated when the symptoms are aggravated by least physical and mental exertion. Mental and physical exhaustion also trigger an attack. Activities like going shopping etc, going out in the sun etc easily start off an attack.
