What causes constant headaches? If you have them, how can you manage them effectively? Better still, how can you get rid of them? Preferably without causing any other problem.
Most people who suffer with a constant headache keep taking pain killers. But these have a deleterious effect, especially with constant and continuous use. At the very least, your liver will be affected and your immune system compromised. Instead of treating the effect, look for the cause and get that mended.
So let’s look at the types and causes of constant headaches and how to fix them gently, effectively, without invasive or expensive procedures, without causing further problems or harm.
Probably the most common cause is from a head injury or concussion. Other common causes can be from badly infected or blocked sinuses, eye strain, a low grade fever, tension (from stress or anxiety), damage to the nervous system, chronic dehydration or any other of a hundred other causes.
You may be able to remember when they started and what happened prior to that. In any event, any form of headaches, whether constant or not, are a way your body is communicating with you that something is wrong and needs attention. And with constant headaches, this means something is seriously wrong. Popping a pill and carrying on as normal is not recommended.
Many sports people suffer repeated head injury and don’t think anything of it, often to their peril.
Symptoms will vary with each individual, too. For some it can be a constant dull headache, for others the pain can vary in intensity and character. The location of the pain can remain static or move around. Time of day, season or weather can affect the pain either way. Sleep may or may not be affected.
Additional symptoms may accompany the pain. For example some may experience constant headaches and dizziness others constant headaches and tiredness. When the headaches cease, so does the dizziness or fatigue.
It is important to understand two significances from these personal symptoms. One is that your body is wise and intelligent and is doing its best to get your attention. And the other is that your individual expression of the malady indicate that you also need individual treatment to solve the problem.
So what’s the solution?
Homeopathy, an holistic and complete form of medicine, works not by masking over the symptoms, which suppresses the effect. Instead, it works by targeting the underlying cause and mending that. Once the cause is fixed, the effect disappears. Easily, without any fanfare.
This means someone whose problem started from a head injury will get a different treatment from someone whose sinus’ are badly infected, will get a different treatment from someone who suffers eye strain, will get a different treatment from someone whose pain is worse on the right side, and so on. I hope you get my drift.
In other words, homeopathy works by treating you as the individual you are. No malady can be mended by treating everyone the same. We are all unique beings and all of us have unique expressions of disease, which is an internal imbalance.
If you suffer with constant headaches, you need to get them mended soon, preferably with an energetic medicine such as homeopathy. Leaving them will lower your immunity, giving rise to more problems.
