The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that 47% of the adult population has a headache at least once within one year.
Of these individuals, 10% report having a migraine.
From a Chinese medicine perspective, headaches develop from either an external influence or internal disruption. The most common example of an external influence is the common cold.
When it comes to internal disturbance, headaches are broken into four categories: tai yang, shao yang, yang ming, and jue yin. Diagnosis is based on location of the headache and treatment is applied accordingly.
