Headaches, of course, are one of the most common types of pain that people take pain killers for. But no one ever cured themselves of headaches by the use of painkillers. The pain killers simply shut down or interfere with the pain messages which are telling a person something is wrong.

There are many possible causes of headaches: sour stomach, constipation, liver congestion, upper-cervical subluxations, muscle tension, estrogen dominant hormone imbalance, are examples. However, whatever the root cause, most all headaches involve tension, inflammation and swelling in the neck and shoulder muscles, which decreases oxygen flow to the head.  As a result, the head complains.

While there are many herbs for the nerves to help relax the body and ease the pain, anti-inflammatory herbs will help reduce the swelling and inflammation, which eases the tension and promotes better blood and oxygen flow. One of the best for this is the herb white willow bark, also known as herbal aspirin. Other herbs that may be helpful include: wild lettuce, wood betony, feverfew and valerian, to name several.
