Calm Cluster Headaches With Kudzu


Can “the plant that ate the South” really be beneficial to those suffering from the excruciating neurological disease called cluster headaches, aka suicide headaches? Sure, it can, according to a report that appeared in the medical journal Headache, written by R. Andrew Sewell, M.D. of Yale University of Medicine in Connecticut. Sewell found kudzu can be used in many safe and natural alternative remedies for your worst health problems.

In a survey of patients with cluster headaches who used kudzu treatments, the majority reported a decrease in the frequency of attacks. Plus, more than one-third of the patients had a decrease in the length of attacks.

Kudzu is a thick vine native to Japan and China that is used in many traditional Asian medicines. Its roots are a rich source of isoflavones, such as puerarin, daidzein and daidzin. Extracts from its flowers, vines and seeds are useful in alternative medicines, as well.

Kudzu is being promoted to reduce the suffering from headaches, to lessen the desire for alcohol and to reduce binge drinking. It also may help with ailments such as diarrhea, high blood pressure, angina pectoris, intestinal obstruction, stomach flu, menopausal symptoms and high cholesterol.

The next time you see kudzu growing over everything in its path, consider that the pesky vine may be able to provide the blessed relief you’ve been praying for.
