Natural headache medicine

White willow bark is the oldest known herb for treating pain and inflammation.  The bark of the white willow tree contains natural salicin which the body changes to salicylic acid. (Aspirin is “acetylsalicylic acid” that is concocted unnaturally from salicylic acid.) White willow bark is the original, natural aspirin that you can use for reducing fevers, pain, and inflammation. White willow bark also works to relieve painful menstruation, arthritis, and neuralgia. The best part is that white willow bark lasts longer than the drug aspirin and is much easier on the tummy because it contains natural tannins that protect the stomach. You can even make tea from white willow bark to drink or use in skin and beauty treatments or cool and apply directly on sores, burns, or cuts. Swish and gargle the tea for sore throats and inflamed gums. Do not take willow bark if you are allergic to aspirin or on an anticoagulant drug.

This is how to "bark" a headache. ;-)
