Om Healing Headaches
Easy-to-read advice for the lay person on treating common headache and facial pain conditions, such as migraine and tension headache. Written by eminent surgeon Jim Bartley ,who became interested in facial pain when he realised that many of the patients that he was seeing with sinusitis were actually suffering from tension headache. Healing severe headaches often requires a multi- facted approach - this book includes advice on sleep, relaxation, nutrition and pain management. It includes explanations of the processing of pain, emotions and pain, migraine, tension headache, the breathing connection, the dental department, the neck, post- traumatic headache and sinusitis pain. It also discusses treatments: breathing, sleep, exercise, diet, food triggers (including gluten) and allergies, herbs and supplements, posture, massage, medication, using the mind, complementary therapies and evolving therapies. The World Health Organisation listed migraine as one of the top four disabling medical conditions with levels of pain, distress and disability comparable to heart disease, cancer or low back pain.
