Headaches can range in intensity from mild to severe and may include symptoms like throbbing pain, nausea, light sensitivity, and vision changes. Homeopathic remedies are selected on an individual basis according to the specific characteristics of each case and how they relate to the particular remedy. Homeopathy is all about discovering the underlying cause of your headaches so that you can get to a place of total healing and liberation from your pain.
