Although it is extremely common that people get headaches, it is not normal. Headaches are always a symptom of a larger problem somewhere in the body. Healthy people do not get headaches.

While there are many medical hypothesis that attempt to determine why headaches occur, there are not many effective treatments in conventional medicine that are able to fully correct the problems that cause headaches. In fact, this is something that conventional medicine often overlooks or fails to understand, which leaves the patient feeling desperate or frustrated. If you have headaches - there is a reason and often all it takes is finding a doctor skilled in functional medicine to do the investigative work to determine the cause. The proper testing and diagnostic evaluation can lead to solutions that have a powerful and positive impact on quality of life in the future.
