Migraine Headache Treatment: Herbs
There are a number of herbs that have a long history of safety and tradition in treating migraine headaches. Herbs are the source of more than 70% percent of medical drugs, and in their natural state have fewer side effects than their medical counterparts. Certain herbs should be used with caution for migraine sufferers, especially those who are receiving prescribed medications. Many health care providers aren’t well-versed in drug-herb interactions; however, many practitioners of Traditional Chinese Medicine who are nationally board-certified in “Chinese Herbology” have received training in both medical and herbal pharmacology and make a valuable contribution as a member of your health care team.
