Summary, etc.: A Holistic approach to treating migraines & headaches. Tension headaches are the most common type and are normally described as having a band around the head, continually getting tighter and tighter causing more and more pain. Most doctors and researchers concur that tension-type headaches are a result of muscle tightness, which restricts blood flow to the head, decreasing the amount of oxygen getting to that area, which results in the headache pain. Neither we nor the medical community can say with any clarity what the exact cause of a migraine is. Doctors and researchers will tell you that there are two basic theories for the causes of migraine headaches. There is a strong consensus that changing levels of the hormone serotonin may be the main cause of the disturbance. Our conclusion is more simplistic. You are simply out of balance.
