Headache head pain Homeopathic treatment



It is a condition of pain in the head. It is one of the commonest types of illness and almost everyone has experienced headache in their life. There is a wide variety of causes of headaches like hypertension, sinusitis, eye troubles, cervical pain, brain tumors, meningitis, fever etc

A brain tissue lacks pain receptors. Due to lack of pain receptors brain tissue itself is not sensitive to pain. Actually tissue structures around the brain are sensitive to pain and that pain is referred to as headache. Pain sensitive structures are divided in nine parts and that are cranium (the periosteum of the skull), muscles, arteries and veins, subcutaneous tissues, eyes, ears, mucous membranes and sinuses.

One of the most common reasons why people seek homeopathic care is that it will be permanent and the treatment has no side-effects. It is very much refined. It is very safe, effective and is an easy way to attain permanent cure. Homeopathy treats patients rather than the disease.

Instantly killing pain with a painkiller tablet is like putting off the light when you don’t want to see the things; surely, the day will come when you cannot switch off the pain. Likewise, in Sinusitis headache, people take pills often, which may suppress pain. This will also cause ulceration or other side-effects.
In Homeopathy, you are in safer hands; you won't get any ulceration or other side-effects. So, even patients suffering from peptic ulcer and those very sensitive to painkillers or antibiotics can also take homeopathic medicines without any adverse reactions. The Homoeopathy medicines not only relieve the pain but also treat the condition permanently.

Commonly recognized types of Head pain leads to headache

  1. Muscular headaches : These headaches arise from tension in muscles of neck and face. The pain is often described as a constant pressure, as if the head were being squeezed in a vise. The pain is frequently present on both sides of the head. Massage can be very good for releiving such type of headaches.

This causes fluid (pus) collection in the sinus, termed as Sinusitis. This may cause a dull, deep or severe headache which may last up to three weeks. The pain may result from stimulation of the sensory nerves due to pressure of the inflamed swollen mucosa or due to fluid in the diseased sinus.

Self Care Home based Remedies Measure to tackle head pain

 

Make healthy lifestyle choices

The same lifestyle choices that promote good health may reduce the frequency and severity of your tension-type headaches. Consider the basics: Eat healthy foods. Don't skip meals, especially breakfast, and stay hydrated with plenty of water daily. Exercise regularly. During physical activity, your body releases certain chemicals that block pain signals to your brain. If your doctor agrees, choose any exercise you enjoy. Walking, swimming and cycling are often good choices. But it's important to start slowly. Exercising too vigorously can trigger some types of headaches.

Get enough sleep. Wake up and go to bed at the same time every day — even on weekends. Relax before you go to bed. If you don't fall asleep within 15 minutes, get up and read or do another quiet activity until you become drowsy. Keep in mind that medications that contain caffeine or other stimulants, including some headache medications, may interfere with sleep.

 Avoid excess caffeine. Sometimes caffeine helps curb headaches. In fact, many headache medications contain caffeine. But heavy daily caffeine use — more than 200 milligrams of caffeine a day (about two regular cups of coffee) — can cause headaches and irritability.

Quit smoking. Cigarette smoke contains carbon monoxide, a known headache trigger, and nicotine has been shown to interfere with the liver's ability to break down headache medication. Aside from these drawbacks, smoking cessation has many other well-documented health benefits that contribute to your overall health.

Keep stress under control Stress and tension-type headaches often go hand in hand. To reduce stress, try these simple tips: Simplify your life. Rather than looking for ways to squeeze more activities or chores into the day, find a way to leave some things out.

Manage your time wisely. Update your to-do list every day — both at work and at home. Delegate what you can, and divide large projects into manageable chunks. Take a break. If you feel overwhelmed, a few slow stretches or a quick walk may renew your energy for the task at hand.

Adjust your attitude. Stay positive. If you find yourself thinking, "This can't be done," switch gears. Think instead, "This will be tough. But I can make it work." Let go. Don't worry about things you can't control.
