If you suffer from headaches a lot, or the severity and frequency of them changes in any way, it’s sensible to have the cause checked out by your doctor.

However, research has shown that the herb feverfew can be very helpful in reducing the severity and frequency of migraine-type headaches. It doesn’t work immediately, you need to take it regularly for several weeks to obtain maximum benefit from it. Try Healthspan’s Feverfew Migraine Relief tablets (£7.98).

Many headaches are caused by tension and anxiety, and the herb passion flower can often help by reducing these feelings. You could try Relaxherb Passion
Flower Tablets (£9.18).
