Did you know that taking painkillers for a prolonged period, even at the recommended dose, can cause serious damage to your gastrointestinal tract, liver and kidneys. What's more, taking painkillers regularly can actually cause the very thing you are trying to stop - headaches!
The eBook Stop Headaches Naturally presents a range of strategies for stopping headaches and migraines without drugs. All strategies are organised in a systematic manner and backed up by references to the scientific literature.
And best of all, they work! There are no magic cures, but most headache sufferers will benefit from treatments like manual therapy. So you should be able to find something in the book that works for you.
This eBook is aimed at the headache and migraine sufferer who really wants a better understanding of why they keep getting headaches and migraines and just what they can do to prevent and remedy them.
That is why we have tried to use simple language and avoid unnecessary medical jargon. However we think the book is sufficiently comprehensive that it will also be useful to health-care professionals.
