"However, experts are learning that headaches are difficult to characterize and the symptoms of one type of headache often overlap with symptoms of other kinds of head pain. The most common brand of headache is the tension headache, which often feels like the head is being squeezed by a tight band. Muscle spasm brought on by tension is thought to cause this type of headache. Other possible causes of tension headache include anger, frustration, muscle strain from physical work, poor posture, eyestrain, and grinding the teeth. Cluster headaches most often occur in men."

"Some are migraine-like, in that the headache is unilateral (on only one side of the head), and sometimes accompanied by nausea and sensitivity to light and noise. Others describe headaches accompanied by severe pain behind the eyes and/or sinus pain. Patients may refer to their headaches as "CFIDS headaches" to distinguish them from "normal" (previously experienced) headaches. CFIDS headaches may last for several hours or several days. They may develop in one side of the head, moving to the other side on the following day. Here, too, the patterns vary considerably as does the pain level."

"Actually, headache is one of the more difficult symptoms to evaluate in medicine, because so many different problems can cause the same end result—your head hurts. Viruses often cause headache, but fever from other types of infections can, too. Some women develop headaches that coincide with menstrual period cycles. Other people suffer mightily and often with "sick headaches" or "migraines" or "cluster migraines." They can occur with sinus pressure or allergies—the "sinus headache." Stress can bring them on. But so can too much caffeine—or too little."

"Head size: The size and shape of the head is an indication of intelligence and innate vitality. Those with a yin constitution have more elongated heads, with broad foreheads tapering down to their chins. Those with a yang constitution have more square-shaped heads. In children, a head that is either too large or too small indicates impaired mental development and essence deficiency. Bulging of the fontanel in infants is normal when they are upset and crying. In sickness, it indicates the upward attack of fire."

"The other 10 percent, including migraines, cluster headaches and caffeine-withdrawal headaches, are caused by the opening and closing (dilation and constriction) of blood vessels in the head that set off pain nerves. Classic migraine is a severe and throbbing headache, usually on one side of the head and often preceded by visual disturbances. Nausea and vomiting often accompany the migraine. Migraine headaches inflict misery on 25 million Americans. For unknown reasons, about three times as many women as men experience this painful condition."

"Do you just throw a toothbrush and some clean underwear in your bag and head out the door? Or do you go to AAA and get maps and guidebooks, make reservations for every stop along the way, trace your route with a pink marker, pack your bags three nights ahead and take along your first meal in a cooler? Or perhaps you call your travel agent, who handles it all and hands you an itinerary and your tickets.

"Symptoms of colds include sneezing, coughing, headache, fever, head congestion, restlessness, and generalized aches and pains. There are a variety of over-the-counter medications that can treat the symptoms of a cold, but none of them eliminate the cold virus. Enzyme therapy can support the functioning of the immune system and even introduce protease into the bloodstream to help attack the cold virus. Enzymes can also support the absorption of nutrients to improve overall health and help reduce the excess mucus being produced by the body."

"Michigan State University and director of the Michigan head Pain Neurological Institute in Ann Arbor, now lists milk as a common food trigger of headaches, although the mechanism is unknown. Dr. Buchholz thinks the number-one headache danger for most people is caffeine. Cutting down on or avoiding headache-triggering foods may well stop the headaches.

"A large head of romaine weighs about 1 pound, while a bagged salad mix has the ounces marked and is usually four to five ounces. For two people, I often mix a one-pound head of lettuce with a bag of mixed baby greens. If you feel the serving of raw vegetables is too much for you, only eat what feels comfortable. Don't force yourself to eat more, but I do want you to think of the salad as the main dish and eat as many raw greens and other raw vegetables as you can. Use any assortment of chopped or shredded raw vegetables."

"Vitamin E neutralizes free radicals by donating a hydrogen atom from the hydroxyl group (HO) on the hexagonal head of vitamin E, as seen in Figure 5-4. Donation of hydrogen to a free radical is easiest for the alpha-tocopherol and gamma-tocopherol forms and slightly harder for the beta-tocopherol and delta-tocopherol forms. In cell membranes, the hexagonal head of vitamin E stays near the surface of the membrane. The tail of vitamin E is deeply implanted into the cell membrane."

"Other causes include diseases of the eye, ear, nose, throat, and sinuses; brain tumors; thyroid disease; high blood pressure; low blood sugar; dental problmes; head injuries; aneurysm (ruptured blood vessel); and nutrient deficiencies and toxicities. Alcohol; cigarette smoke; exposure to chemicals and pollution; and some medications, including oral contraceptives; may also cause headaches. Headache prevention Regular exercise seems to help prevent some types of headache. If headaches are caused by reactions to certain foods, it is obviously advisable to avoid these foods."

"Robert went on to tell me how this buffalo head had become a treasure of his as well. After his great-grandfather died, it was one of the few tangible relics that connected him with the heritage of his past. One day a gallery owner had come to visit Robert from the nearby town. Seeing how beautiful the head was, she asked if she could use it as part of a display in her gallery, and he had agreed. After a few weeks had passed, Robert hadn't heard from his friend and went into town to see how she was doing. To his surprise, when he arrived at the gallery, nothing was there."

"In cell membranes, the hexagonal head of vitamin E stays near the surface of the membrane. The tail of vitamin E is deeply implanted into the cell membrane. When the tail of vitamin E is oxidized by a free radical, it moves to the surface where the head of the vitamin E can donate hydrogen. In this way, vitamin E pulls free radicals out of fatty membranes for neutralization. This vitamin E cannot perform its antioxidant function a second time until it is regenerated. The ability of vitamin E to perform as an antioxidant can be restored by the ascorbate form of vitamin C or by coenzyme Q."

"Once the serotonin is out of balance, the blood vessels in your brain become inflamed and you end up with a head that's throbbing with pain. More than 90 percent of all headaches are classified as tension headaches, which occur when the muscles in the back of your neck and scalp tighten. When you have a tension headache, you'll probably feel a generalized dull head pain. That's a signal that the nerves running through the muscles have become inflamed and irritated. Migraines are another kind of animal."

"Usually the headache is focused over my right eyebrow, and a lot of times the pain extends all the way back to the middle part of my head." Typically she used to take at least two 500-milligram tablets of Tylenol Extra Strength. It usually worked, she says, but it takes "maybe forty-five minutes to an hour for the headache to go away, and sometimes it gets rid of the extreme pain but leaves a dull ache, and then I have to take another one to try to get rid of that." Now Donna subdues the same "mean" headaches by putting peppermint oil on her forehead, and she likes it a lot better."

"Taking medication at the fitst sign of a headache and lying in a darkened room with the head packed in ice for about 20 minutes may eliminate a heavy-duty headache before it takes hold. Nondrug treatment of headache includes acupunctute, acupressure, relaxation and meditation, massage, osteopathic or chiropractic manipulation, herbal preparations, and avoiding headache-producing foods in some cases."

"The most common caffeine withdrawal symptom is a throbbing and/or pressure headache, usually located at the temples but occasionally at the back of the head or around the eyes. A vague muscular headache often follows. Of course, caffeine can cure these symptoms; but this is not the answer. Rather, we need to adhere to dietary guidelines and supplements to help with this and other withdrawal problems. It is best to taper off caffeine before going on a cleanse as the withdrawal (mainly headaches) can be very uncomfortable. The Detox Diet works well for this transition."

"The sessions became a time and a place for women to express some of their deepest fears," explained head researcher Dr. Spiegel. One participant referred to her fear as "that sense of waking up at three in the morning with an elephant sitting on your chest." She added, "I wonder if I will live to see my son graduate from high school or my daughter get married. I have to keep up a front everywhere else—that's so hard." Spiegel also reported a "good deal of crying in these groups, as well as laughter . . . the groups provided a setting in which they could deal with their fears."

"Buckwheat hulls are also used as filling in specialty pillows for the head, body, and eyes. Where Is Buckwheat Grown? Japan is the main producer of buckwheat, followed by Russia, Poland, Canada, France, and the United States. The three largest growers in the United States are Missouri, New York, and Pennsylvania. Why Should I Eat Buckwheat? Buckwheat is high in fiber, magnesium, B vitamins, and manganese. It contains flavonoids such as rutin, which helps lower bad cholesterol levels and maintain proper blood flow."

"She patted a sheepish-looking Melissa's head. "Melissa takes care of herself." There was obviously much misunderstanding and a failure to communicate in this family. I asked Melissa if she agreed completely, and if there were areas in which she felt she'd like more help or attention. Embarrassed now that she was on the spot, Melissa offered an abridged and less emotionally charged version of the complaints she had shared with me earlier that week on the phone."

"The attention-deficit patient often can't complete something until the Sword of Damacles is over her head. She has a terrible time organizing things, so her room and office are messy. And she has a love-hate relationship with structure. My patient Sam wasn't rebelling against authority per se—he was acting out of frustration from his inability to navigate structure. Paradoxically, one of the best treatment strategies for ADHD involves establishing extremely rigid structure."

"The leafy head is the only edible part. It is eaten raw, cooked, and preserved. There are over four hundred different varieties of cabbage to choose from. Popular varieties include green, red, and savoy, and Chinese varieties like Chinese cabbage, bok choy, and napa cabbage. A Serving of Food Lore... Cabbage has been cultivated for more than 4,000 years and domesticated for over 2,500 years. The first pickled version was cabbage preserved in brine, created by soldiers in China and Mongolia. The builders of the Great Wall of China also were known to exist on cabbage for energy and stamina."
