A recently released e-book, entitled Living and Understanding Headaches: Solutions that Work, covers various topics related to headache and migraine treatments and symptoms. It serves as a report for those who are either suffering from headaches or are otherwise interested in head pain conditions.
Proper identification of headaches is crucial to achieve relief from migraine headaches and other headache types.

For this reason, the first section of the e-book highlights the four major categories of headache – migraines, cluster headaches, tension headaches, and sinus headaches.
The immediate cause for an individual instance of a headache attack is called a trigger. Instant headache relief depends not just on finding techniques to mitigate pain and target root causes, but also on trigger avoidance. The middle section of Living and Understanding Headaches covers typical triggers and other factors (such as heredity) likely to contribute to headaches.
Relief from migraine headaches and other headaches often focused on pain pills in the past. Now, due to a concern with side effects and the potential for addiction, medical practitioners and patients alike seek alternative treatments methods. This final section focuses on specific ways to ward off or decrease symptoms through natural means.
Topics explored in this section include the following:
One of the natural methods mentioned is specific to migraine treatments, to prevent the nausea and vomiting often experienced by migraineurs. Pain is specifically discussed as well, as is muscle tension.
The last section concludes with a discussion of general prevention and treatment strategies. Conventional medical treatment modalities are addressed, which tend to mask the symptoms rather than target root causes.
In closing, a new strategy is explored called the MiRx Protocol™. This protocol starts with instant headache relief through a nerve-blocking medical component. It then provides long-lasting amelioration using the following strategies:
