Information on Headache, acute

DescriptionA headache involves pain or discomfort in the head, scalp, or neck, and can be associated with muscle tightness in these areas. Headaches can be a symptom of stress and tension, especially when the headache centers around the occiput and down to the neck. This tightness restricts blood flow to the brain and causes muscles to contract, leading to pain. Headaches can also be a sign of liver imbalances (especially when the headache is around the eyes or at the temples), and other metabolic disorders.
Treatment PlanRelaxing herbs, herbs to increase blood flow to the brain, herbs to relieve liver stagnation, and cooling herbs may be useful.
