For most people, headache symptoms are treated with over the counter pain killers.
Drug companies make billions of dollars in profit thanks to muscle tension, migraine and sinus headaches. However, there is a growing concern over the frequent use of over the counter and prescription medications for headaches.
In fact, many of the drugs that are used to help alleviate headache pain can actually be the cause headaches. Referred to as ‘rebound headaches’, they can be caused by taking pain medication more than a couple of times a week.
Chronic drug use has been linked to many health problems including damage to the liver and kidneys.
Certain medications can also lead to:
- weight gain,
- joint pain,
- worsening of symptoms,
- and dependency.
Fortunately, alternatives to drug treatment are available.
Not only are these natural health treatments effective in relieving pain, they often address the root cause of the problem.
