Herbs for Headaches

Headaches are all too common, and can be frustrating to deal with. Conventional wisdom would have it that over-the-counter drugs are the easy answer, but there are grave risks associated with the use of common painkillers, especially as a habit of frequent use. Fundamentally, though, this one-size-fits-all approach is flawed: there are many kinds of headaches – tension, migraine, cluster, pre-menstrual, etc – and each requires a different strategy.

Rosemary’s great when your headache is due to deficient cerebral circulation, but not when it’s excess!

In this class, we will discuss which types of headache respond best to which herbs. Focusing on nervous, digestive, blood-building, and adaptogenic herbs, as well as lifestyle factors, we will get to the root of headache pain to reduce both quantity and frequency.
