Homeopathy is all about the details. This may be one of the reasons I love it so much. It works with my detail oriented mind. Headaches can be from all sorts of things. A headache for me may be totally different than a headache for my husband. Homeopathy considers these details when suggesting a remedy. It is very different than the medical approach.

These symptoms are definitely getting specific. The more specific the better. I did not include all the symptoms, just a generalized idea. Most headaches cover one of these symptoms (the headaches that are not chronic and not serious). I also start with 30 C, but the book I am referencing: THE FAMILY GUIDE TO HOMEOPATHY by Alain Horvilleur MD recommends 9C. Either way, if you are looking for a natural remedy for a headache, one of these may be worth a try.
A few other natural headache reliefs: peppermint oil on temples, massage, acupuncture.
