Liver Based Migraines - McDowell's Herbal Treatments

This type is triggered by certain foods and if you watch carefully you can begin to associate the onset of this type of headache with some particular food. Usually some sort of 'junk' food involving too much oil, or artificial colour or flavour. Often red wine or cheese for example can also be involved in a liver based migraine pattern.

Besides trying to improve the diet and avoiding clear triggers, I prescribe liver tonics and also look at the stress handling responses of the patient as they often have a more sensitive than normal liver, due to their internalization of stress.

The herbs included in this mix are Blue Flag, Chamomile, Dandelion, Fennel, Black Cohosh, St. Mary's Thistle, Rosehips and Vervain as well as the Bach Flowers Agrimony, Gentian, Scleranthus and Vine.

The way we handle our life stresses is highly likely to be a learned behavior, and so over time can be unlearned.
