TENSION HEADACHE Natural Cures
Tension headache is the most frequent headache, it causes damage to individual life and has great social
prominence. The current treatment is the anti-inflammatory one, but this over time loses its effectiveness,
as well as having serious aftermath on the body.
Here we find outthe natural cures for tension headache, its features and official medical treatments.
Tension headache is a primary headache, that is without obvious cause. Tension term derives by observations
that traced the pain to contraction of head or neck muscles. It's the most frequent (90%) of headaches. It's characterized
by severe and constricting pain in the head, often associated with increased tone of head and/or neck muscles.
Pain of tension-type headache is often described as a strong sensation of head compression, as if it were tightened by
a vise. Pain is not throbbing and is often bilateral, mild or moderate, but can sometimes be very intense.
It typically lasts 4-6 hours, but can also occur for minutes or a full day (starts in the morning, slowly increases over
the course of day, disappears in evening). Other times lasts for several days or months(subcontinuous pain in chronic forms),
sometimes for years.
Onset or intensity of pain is caused by emotional stress, anxiety and depression. Natural remedies for tension headache
achieve goal of restoring mast cells metabolic alterations, which cause this disease.
During a migraine attack ther's extravasation of plasma proteins and development of localized intracranial vessels
inflammation. This causes activation of trigeminal innervation in cerebral circulation. This phenomenon involves action
of some peptides neurotransmitters with a dilator effect, contained in nerve fibers of trigeminal vascular system. In
particular, CGRP (calcitonin gene-related peptide) and SP (substance P) are recognized. Substance P produces outflow from
blood vessels of proteins and inflammatory reaction triggered by activation of mast cells in cerebral dura mater.
According to current thinking, chronic tension headache is often refractory to any therapy. Current therapy is based on
use of analgesics and anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) like paracetamol, ibuprofen, acetylsalicylic acid. Their excessive
use (which occurs in prolonged headache pain) is burdened with many side effects.
However, treating tension headaches with natural products is possible thanks to action of some phytotherapeutic
substances like Rhodiola rosea and Vitis vinifera. They have activity against free radicals, anti-inflammatory, antiplatelet,
nourishing blood vessel wall.
There are also natural substances like flavoproteins and coenzymes that contribute effectively and not harmful
to restoration of mast cell metabolism, rebalancing their cell membranes. Thus, the production of neural transmitters is
normalized and the immune system is restored to optimum conditions.
