Diagnosing and treating headaches

by Dr. David Vojtisek, ND

Diagnosing and treating headaches can be a challenge in both allopathic and naturopathic medicine.

This is largely due to the fact that there are many types and varieties of headaches that cannot be diagnosed easily with bloodwork or other common test methods. Headaches caused by more serious medical issues such as brain lesions, eye disease and infection of the spinal fluid need to be diagnosed and treated acutely, often in the hospital. Dr.Vojtisek has noticed, however, that many headaches can be caused by more mundane triggers such as food sensitivities, hormonal imbalances, chronic dehydration, muscle tension, stress, and nutritional deficiencies.

If you are or know a headache sufferer, consider having them investigated by a Naturopathic Doctor.
