Many of these "cures" have been around the alternative medicinal movement for a long time. The Burton Goldberg Group on Alternative Medicine covers alternative medicinal treatments with a contributor concensus of hundreds of physicians. Some of the items cited are scalp massage for headache relief. Headache management is a complicated area. Known aggravants of headaches are stress, foods i.e. excess coffee, heavy creams and certain types of allergins. There are times where an osteopath or chiropractor can assist with headache control. Ultimately, the patient needs a diagnosis for the cause of the headache because a temporary relief product or process could mask more sinister symptomatology. The benefits of green tea are extolled. Green tea is a known anti-oxidant along with Vitamin C, Selenium and other vitamins/herbal preparations. Exercise is a good supplemental therapy for advancing age. So is calcium carbonate supplementation , Vitamin D and Boron. Vitamin C is a good supplemental therapy for the common cold but so is green tea. A high grade acidophilus is another condition precedent for short-circuiting disease processes of the gastrointestinal tract. This work is a good beginning point for someone with little knowledge of the alternative medicinal movement. Of course, every therapeutic approach should be discussed with your physician or alternative medicinal provider. Frequent dental cleanings are another condition precedent to good health because dental calculus is a literal breeding ground for disease. I would recommend this book; however, realize that its contents are a starting point only.
