Headache & Migraine – why you get them and how to treat them holistically

Headache and migraine are unfortunately one of the most common wellbeing complaints that I come across in my practise. As with any physical health or wellbeing concern, it is important to get to the underlying cause in order to prevent constant reoccurrence.  If we just keep taking painkillers we are ignoring the message that our body is sending us about something that needs to be dealt with on all levels - physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.

Unfortunately though in modern Western society the norm is to ‘soldier on’ and keep leading our normal lives whilst masking the symptoms of our illness with medication.
