In treating a headache, as with fevers, homeopathy looks to stimulate the body's innate ability to heal itself. Although self-prescribing with homeopathy can work well for acute, self-limiting conditions, anyone with consistent, painful headaches should consult a professional homeopath.

Tension Headaches

Provided by: 

Q. I have frequent headaches. Can homeopathy help?

AIn treating a headache, as with fevers, homeopathy looks to stimulate the body's innate ability to heal itself. Instead of defining headaches by “type” such as migraine, tension, or sinus, homeopathy looks at the “whole person” to match all of your current symptoms as closely as possible with the corresponding remedy. Since homeopathy addresses a syndrome of symptoms (often including your current emotional state) remedies for different conditions frequently overlap. For example, Belladonna is a leading remedy for fever and headaches.

Although self-prescribing with homeopathy can work well for acute, self-limiting conditions, anyone with consistent, painful headaches should consult a professional homeopath.

Belladonna (deadly nightshade)This is a leading remedy for intense throbbing headaches-those that are usually worse on the right side and are aggravated by light, noise, touch, motion, simple jarring, lying down. It also works on headaches triggered by hormonal fluctuations during menstruation or menopause. The head pains tend to diminish when sitting in a semi-erect position, lying in dark quiet room, and applying cold compresses or firm pressure. Commonly symptoms include a flushed or hot face, glassy eyes with dilated pupils, or icy cold hands and feet.

Bryonia (wild bryony)Bryonia also a relieves intense headache pain that's aggravated by any type of jarring or coughing. Chose Bryonia, however, if the headache is worse in the morning until mid-day and the pain tends to be accompanied by indigestion and/or constipation. If you need this remedy, you will likely be irritable and insist upon being alone. You may also have a dry mouth and lips and a great thirst for cold liquids.

Nux vomica (poison nut)Often called the “hangover headache” remedy, Nux vomica will relieve a headache associated with overeating, caffeine withdrawal, drug use, or stress. If you describe your headache as “splitting,” with possible nausea, and feel worse with any type of noise or light, this is your remedy.

Gelsemium (yellow jasmine)When your headache pain occurs primarily in the back of your head, your vision is dim, or you have other types of visual disturbances, reach for Gelsemium. With this type of headache you may feel worse when exposed to heat and sun and feel better after profuse urination or while lying in a reclined position. You may also experience extreme fatigue (for example, your head feels too heavy to hold up and you can barely keep your eyes open). Gelsemium is also useful for a headache that comes on prior to, or after, a stressful event.What dosage?Although trained homeopaths may use much higher potencies, self-prescribers should opt for remedies in the 6X or 30X range, unless they feel more confident with their selection of the remedy—that is, if their symptoms closely match the ones described here. In homeopathy, the number of tablets you take is less important than how often you t...
