For unrelenting headpain that is not relieved by what your physician suggests and by OTC remedies, why not try this 'tried and true' natural remedy- peppermint tea?
Simply brew some peppermint tea and cool until it is the right temperature for you. This brew is a mild stimulant and alleviates surface pain on contact. When used with your usual analgesics, it just might finally calm down that aching mouth and/or throbbing head. Vitamin Shoppe - Peppermint Tea Org(Disc), 25 tea bags
You can 'swish and spit' or simply sip the tea slowly. Relief is often very rapid. In fact, this peppermint tea is also good for a tummy ache and is definitely worth investigating.
Note: peppermint tea can safely be used in children ages 8 and over, but check with your pediatrician first. Hopefully your M.D. will have at least some knowledge of herbal medicine in this enlightened age!
That's your tip for now, 'simple, yet elegant', using God's good herbs.
With Love in Christ,
