Me too! I saw a neurologist for years for help with migraine
headaches and nothing worked. It was a nice little pretty flower that
saved me. Now though, I get them still and the pretty flower isn't
helping, so I have to turn to something synthetically produced so
that I might be able to deal with life. I prefer a naturally produced
healing, but sometimes, taking the key particles (salicylic acid for
one) and synthesising them (aspirin) into a stronger form really
makes the difference in something that helps versus something that
cures. I'm quite defensive myself of all that is natural, but I see
so many people who ruin our stance by claiming that anything natural
is good for you and that natural things "don't have chemicals," so I
try to make sure that a good balance is presented.

Oh, just for laughs: I had a Chinese doctor tell me that he "not so
sure 'bout this <sarcastic emphasis> herbal medicine" before
prescribing heavy duty pain killers. He's the same one who didn't
want to give me migraine meds for fear that I might become addicted.
(so, yeah, he gave me pain killers, no one gets addicted to those!)

If only a wee bit of henna could cure a migraine, I'd be set. =)
peace,
