Headaches – The CommonSense Approach is a clear, concise and accessible guide that will empower headache sufferers to become their own ‘headache detective’.
Ninety per cent of adults have had a headache at some time in their lives. Almost twenty per cent suffer from chronic headaches, with migraines comprising eight per cent of these. Headaches are responsible for more visits to the GP — and for more drugs bought — than any other condition. Where this conventional approach seems not to be working, the world of alternative health has excelled.
Thoroughly researched and written in an engaging style, Pat Thomas discusses who gets headaches and why. She helps track down their causes and details a huge variety of solutions, from stress relief and diet to alternative remedies such as herbs, aromatherapy, massage, acupuncture and hypnotherapy.
Including helpful charts, useful addresses and further reading, this book itself will be a welcome relief for the many headache sufferers out there.
