Much of the time, natural headache remedies are overlooked in favor of over-the-counter medications formulated and marketed for this common source of pain and discomfort. Most of us have been taught that headaches are unavoidable parts of life and other than rest and popping a pill, there is not much to be done. But for some, headaches are more than an occasional disturbance. According to the National Headache Foundation, over 45 million Americans suffer from chronic headaches and over half of those people suffer specifically from debilitating migraines. Despite the prevalence of headache and migraine conditions, these ailments are still commonly misunderstood among sufferers and medical professionals alike.
