While it may seem quick and easy to grab over the counter treatments for headaches there are actually time proven herbal remedies that may be even more effective in headache treatment without the harsh chemical side effects. Unlike allopathic medicine (drugs) that focus on chemistry and treatment, herbal medicine concentrates on prevention. Consider these three herbal medicines in your treatment of headaches. And of course, always seek the advice of qualified health care professionals when seeking treatment for illness.

Headaches and the WLS High Protein Diet

Herbal Headache Remedies

Feverfew: this herb, a member of the daisy family, is a common garden plant and has long been used by the British for self-medication. Research has shown that the active ingredient in feverfew is parthenolide. The Journal of Pharmacy and Pharmacology suggests that feverfew inhibits serotonin release and the amount released from platelets is controlled by the parthenolide content in the dose of feverfew. Parthenolide is the main active ingredient in feverfew. Several studies indicate feverfew may reduce headache suffering. Feverfew products should indicate the proper amounts of parthenolide per dose at 165 milligrams as determined in a 1992 study published by J Pharm and Pharmacol.

Ginger: As more research indicates the prevalence of headaches to blood flow abnormalities we are learning that ginger reduces clotting time of blood cells and also blocks the production of prostaglandins, which are linked to the inflammation associated with headaches. Ginger has long been known for its therapeutic properties to relieve headaches, nausea, and vomiting. Modern science suggests that headache sufferers who take 1.5 to 2 grams of powdered ginger daily report fewer headaches and less severe headaches. Ginger is widely available in the vitamin and supplement section of major stores and can be purchased in the correct dosage in encapsulated form.

Chamomile: The use of chamomile to relieve headaches dates back to the ancient Egyptians who used chamomile for its therapeutic and relaxing qualities. Chamomile tea, commonly available, is a light and flavorful tea and is employed to ease pain, headaches, and insomnia. High levels of flavonoids are present in chamomile which help the body fight allergens, viruses, and carcinogens. These are the active properties that make chamomile effective as an anti-inflamatory nerve tonic, and mild sedative. Those with chronic headaches report fewer sleep disturbances when having a cup of chamomile tea before bedtime.

Feverfew, ginger, and chamomile may all be used to prepare a warm compress to use for immediate relief of headaches. Soak a cloth in a warm brew of herbal tea and apply to forehead. Relax and enjoy the warm compress as it helps relieve headach pain.

All of these herbal treatments provide effective relief for people who suffer headaches as a result of a high protein diet.
