Many nowadays are exploring alternative therapies or natural remedies for their health ailments; including headaches. In fact, an online survey conducted by National Headache Foundation in America revealed that 58% of its headache respondents have tried an alternative therapy. An alternative therapy is simply a practice of healing that is anything other than conventional medicine. Mostly, an alternative therapy involves natural treatment methods.
In the survey, those that turned to an alternative therapy felt that their conventional medications were ineffective in curing and stopping headaches. Many were concerned about the side effects and the possibility of rebound headaches, caused by excessive consumption of drugs.
The book, Natural Headache Remedies, should come in handy to address these concerns. Its information is also timely as seasonable migraines are most common during this time of the year due to weather and atmospheric changes.
"This book provides a description of the different natural treatments for headache. It also includes very practical steps that a sufferer can use. These steps are useful recipes for sufferers who wish to cope with their condition and enjoy a better quality of life," said Sandra Kim Leong, the author of the book.
Although most of the events for National Headache Awareness by the National Headache Foundation in America are held in the first week of June, the book serves a pivotal and continual role in educating the public about their treatment choices.
In the past, there has not been enough public awareness and support for chronic headache. After all, in most instances, an occasional headache is tolerable.
Yet, 29.5 million Americans suffer from severe headache pains that impact on their ability to function. An estimated $50 billion in absenteeism and other related expenses is incurred every year by businesses due to disabling headaches.
All this is likely to change as more is being made aware about headaches. Chronic headache is now considered by the medical community as a biological disorder of the brain. The World Health Organization recently ranked headache in the top 20 most disabling disorders worldwide.
"The book aims to give recognition that headache pain can cause much distress and disability. In these cases, a headache is not just a headache. More help and support should be rendered to the headache sufferer," said Leong.
The book is currently available in an instant downloadable format. This makes it easy for anyone to get information quickly on their headaches. To find out more, please refer to http://www.Natural-Headache-Remedies.com/ .
