This chapter is an extract from book: Headaches Begone! A Systemic Approach To Healing Your Headaches.
Chapter 8. End Migraines & Headaches using Herbs, Spices, Seeds & Nuts
In this chapter, you will discover that Mother Nature has an incredible amount of plant-based solutions to help with any type of headache. I could probably write multiple tomes of just herbal solutions for migraines and headaches, as there are literally hundreds of such helpful plants out there.
Before diving into the specific herbs, let’s talk first about the different kinds of preparations you can expect to find in the herbal medicine chest.
Different Types of Herbal Preparations
When working with herbs, you need to first understand which preparations have the best influence on your body. Herbal infusions, decoctions, tinctures, essential oils should be considered first since they provide the best absorption of the plant essence and therefore have the best healing effect on your body. Herbs whose essence hasn’t been extracted, especially in pill forms, should be considered last, as you’d probably need to take a lot more of those to receive the same benefits, and your body will need to work extra hard to do the processing work.
