Calm your clamor with these natural interventions.
This herb looks like a tiny daisy and, in fact, comes from the same tribe of plants (Asteraceae). Active ingredients, such as parthenolide, reduce pain and inflammation, decrease platelet adhesion, and prevent mast cells from releasing histamine, which causes blood vessels to dilate and leak fluids.
A few drops of the essential oil Rosemary on your neck and temples may help to alleviate some tension-based symptoms due to muscular pressure (used for mild headaches). Rosemary is also noted to increase concentration. You can also add the herb to tea.
Lavender & Sandalwood essential oils also aid the muscles to release tension, which often times is the culprit for tension headaches. A gentle massage combined with slow pressure on trigger/reflex points can ward off a headache.
Traditionally used to treat spasms in the respiratory and digestive tract, the leaves and rhizomes contain petasin, which relaxes smooth muscle tissue and also inhibits the formation of inflammatory substances called leukotrienes. The plant also contains liver toxins called pyrrolizidine alkaloids (PAs), so its important to choose a formula thats PA-free. Three clinical trials have shown that this herb, taken preventively, safely and effectively reduces the number of migraines. Benefits become obvious at about four weeks.
Melatonin is a pineal gland hormone that rises at night and regulates many biorhythms, including the sleep-wake cycle. New research demonstrates people with cluster headaches and migraines have low melatonin levels. Preventive melatonin supplementation proved particularly helpful in those with cluster headaches. Disturbances in sleep patterns, such as insufficient sleep, too much sleep and jet travel across multiple time zones, can trigger headaches.
