8A The Mountain Messenger, Thursday, August 23, 1990 Helen Woodward Headaches, migraines where do they come from? What do we do about them? Old-time herbalists resist that many tense, nervous headaches come from an excess of carbohydrates or, m some cases, low-blood sugar. Either way a look at what we eat, over-indulgence, under-in- dulgence, and food sensitivities for possible allergic reactions should be considered. Many times a simple walk around the block, freely swinging our arms, kicking out our legs and gener- ally stretching our bodies can have marvelous and immediate effects. A short fast to give the digestive system a chance to re- balance itself can prove effective, In more extreme cases, a thor- ough cleansing of the system is necessary. A ten day regime of water with meals of plain brown rice gives good results. Betonv, stachys b.etonica or stachys officinalis (Labiatiae), is a plant worth cultivating. This perennial, sometimes referred to as lousewort, purple betony and wood betonY, grows easily in a variety of locations. Found in old European flower gardens, betony is also adaptable to dry or damp meadows, sunny slopes or forest paths. The whorls of red-purple flowers appear from ]ur~e to August. An infusion of the Whole plant taken in half cup doses three or four times a day is good for any obscure nervous disfunc- tion and headaches of all sorts. chamomile, oats and rosemary are other good herbal remedies for this purpose as all are known to build up nerve tissue due to their t!mcentrated levels of mag- nesium and the B---vitamins, es- pecially vitamin B-6, Although more research needs to be done in this area, these simple herbal methods have [~'en successful for many, many years in countries throughout our world.
