According to the World Health Organization, headaches are among the most common disorders of the nervous system worldwide. Recent studies suggest that up to one adult in 20 has a headache every, or nearly every day. Typical treatment includes pain relievers such as aspirin, acetaminophen, and ibuprofen, with some chronic sufferers relying on regular use of stronger prescription medications. Despite these interventions, headaches continue to affect the lives of many patients alongside an abundance of unnecessary side effects from the drugs that are supposed to provide a solution.
