Home Remedies for Headache

Headache is a common complaint that generally afflicts everyone at some time or the other. Headache can be broadly classified into three types. They are:

1. Tension headache
2. Migraine headache
3. Cluster headache

The most common among them is tension headache. In this type of headache, prolonged tension seems to produce a spasm of the muscles in the back of the neck. This muscle spasm draws the tissues over the surface of the cranium very tight, so that the pain is felt not only in the back of the neck but also over the top and front of the head.

Migraine, on the other hand is a hereditary condition, and the inheritance is passed down through the females rather than the males. Nervous abnormalities of the female generative organs are the most frequent of the exciting causes. Other affecting factors are eye strain, shock, grief, worry, gastro-intestinal irregularities, mental emotions like anger, fear, love, jealously and remorse.

Cluster headaches are repetitive ones that occur for weeks to months at a time, followed by periods of remission. It is generally caused by smoking and drinking alcohol.
