Biocombination Number 12 Headache

Dr. Rajiv Sood

Headaches can be caused due to a deficiency in any one or more of the inorganic salts. Based on the symptoms any one of the twelve inorganic salts can be prescribed for relief. Biocombination 12 relieves headache due to congestion and rush of blood to the head, neuralgia, headache due to anxiety, sleeplessness and indigestion.


Headache pain occurs in the tissues covering the brain, the attaching structures at the base of the brain, and the muscles and blood vessels around the scalp, face, and neck. The brain itself is insensitive to pain. Headache is defined as primary or secondary. Headache is considered primary when a disease or other medical condition does not cause it. The three most common primary headaches are tension or muscle contraction, migraine, and cluster. It is not uncommon for someone to experience a combination of these headaches. In fact, some experts believe that all headaches are derived from the same mechanisms that cause migraine, and they are simply variations on a single biologic theme. Secondary headaches are caused by other medical conditions, such as sinusitis infection, neck injuries or abnormalities, and stroke.

Headaches can be caused due to a deficiency in any one or more of the inorganic salts. Based on the symptoms any one of the twelve inorganic salts can be prescribed for relief.

Since, for a layman it is difficult to recognise and differentiate between the symptoms therefore a biocombination has been prepared only for relieving headaches. Biocombination 12 relieves headache due to congestion and rush of blood to the head, neuralgia, headache due to anxiety or tension, sleeplessness and indigestion.

It works well in relieving tension headaches, migraine and cluster headaches also. Biocombination 12 is also effective in relieving headache caused due to eyestrain, nasal catarrh, alcoholism, anaemia, hypertension and sinusitis.

In other types of headache where it is secondary to other illnesses, biocombination 12 can be used as an adjuvant.

Biocombination 12 constitutes of Ferrum phosphoricum, Magnesia phosphorica, Kali phosphoricum and Natrum muriaticum. The indications of all the four salts are given below:

Ferrum phosphoricum: Ferrum phos is indicated in conditions where there is a relaxation of the muscular walls or engorgement of blood vessels. There is a throbbing headache from rush of blood to the head with vomiting. Cold applications and pressure relieve the pain.

Kali phosphoricum: Kali phos is indicated in nervous headaches resulting from overstrain of the mental faculties or great exertion of the mind. It cures headaches of students and those worn out by fatigue.

Magnesia phosphorica: Magnesia phos cures neuralgic headaches with shooting, darting pains. The pain is relieved by warmth and aggravated by cold. Headache with spasmodic crampy pains, worse from draughts of cold air.

Natrum muriaticum: Headaches that are caused due to a deficiency of sodium chloride in the body. There is a dull headache with drowsiness and unrefreshing sleep. It is especially indicated for headaches of girls at puberty. The headaches are worse in the morning and better towards the evening.

Besides the above four constituents of biocombination 12, other biochemic salts are also used for relieving headache when presented with the said indications.

Kali sulphuricum: It is indicated in headaches that grow worse in a heated room and in the evening and are better in cool open air.

Calcarea phosphorica: It relieves headache with cold feelings in the head and the head feels cold to touch. The pain is worse from hot or cold applications.

Natrum sulphuricum: This is indicated when the headache is caused due to bilious conditions and is associated with vomiting of bile, bitter taste and greenish gray coated tongue. It is also a suitable remedy for headaches that come on after a head injury.
