Herein is a sample case of a simple homeopathic remedy removing the irritating symptoms of a chronic headache. This 52 year old man came in complaining of a strange type of headache. It was always located on the right side of his head. It was as if a pressing sometimes elevating to stabbing pain in a single area of his head. He found that he tended to be sensitive to heat since he perspired easily. He was very thirsty and craved sweets and candies. Interestingly he found slight pressure really bothered his head pain but when he pressed in hard on his scalp it felt better. As you know homeopathic remedies are suited to not the label of headache, but the particulars of them, taking into account the strange rare and peculiar aspects of the person's symptomology. See below for how the case was researched.
Based on their unique symptoms, sulphur 200CH was recommended, at four pellets twice daily as needed. This remedy was given because it suited his symptom picture. When one reads the materia medica on sulphur, these types are hot, perspire easily, are sensitive to heat, crave sweets, suffer with right sided headaches, feel better with pressure and are thirsty. He was also a very intelligent man with an analytical mind, which sulphur types tend to be quick.
The patient reported that after three days he no longer had a headache. He used the remedy on occassion and it helped him avoid tylenol for his headaches.
