The psychological meaning of headache

by | Jun 8, 2022 | Head-body scheme, Head/Brain, Symptom Language

In this article, we will decode the psychological meaning of various formats of headaches according to the understanding of Antonie Peppler, the founder of Creative Homeopathy, and her research on symptom language. From her understanding, “symptom language” is a form of somatic communication—the “soma” respectively, the “material body” expresses an inner conflict that the person is not consciously aware of. Thus, we composed a list of related homeopathic remedies that respond to these internal disharmonies.

Forms of Headaches and
their homeopathic remedies

The head stands for the conscious control of life. It is subordinate to the unconscious emotions and has the task of raising them into consciousness and thus processing them. Important: Emotions should be perceived, classified, and structured with the head, not vice versa. Headaches occur when trying to solve emotional problems rationally. Injuries in the emotional world are rationalized in order not to have to act on it.

Homeopathic remedies for headaches in general

Pain can have various forms of how it is perceived, like “stabbing” or “pulsating.” The sensorial presentation can already reveal the more profound psychological implications. We wrote an elaborated article about the unique forms of pain and what they mean. Please take that into consideration. Independent from that, the following homeopathic remedies are well-known allrounders for many forms of headaches.

  • Coffea cruda = Feelings of guilt, but do not face the situation
  • Gelsemium sempervirens = Anxiety of expectation from withheld emotion
  • Glonoinum = The possibility and the will to expand consciousness are missing
  • Spigelia anthelmia = The breach of trust, the stab in the heart
  • Sulfur = The awareness is suppressed

The meaning of forehead headache

The psychological meaning of forehead headaches, in general, symbolizes a form of rebellion against something. An individual who shows these symptoms defies to endure an unpleasant situation or tends to defy something or someone.

  • Belladonna = From stagnated, suppressed life force becomes anger
  • Glonoinum = The possibility and the will to expand consciousness are missing
  • Hippomanes = Embryo takes over the suffering of the mother
  • Iris versicolor = Does not stand by his actual values
  • Natrium muriaticum = Clinging to what is tried and known
  • Sepia succus = Longing for harmony, which has to correspond to one’s own ideas
  • Silicea = Being over-rational – Feelings are pushed away by injury
  • Spigelia anthelmia = The breach of trust, the stab in the heart

The psychology of Top headache

The psychological meaning of top headaches is associated with closing oneself off to inspiration and rejecting spirituality. From the gnostic and Vedic scriptures, we associate the top of the head with the crown chakra, which is the connection to higher realms of consciousness—hence, the connection to spirituality. The individual remains in a state of suffering, making it difficult for himself.

  • Castoreum canadense = Emotional distraction
  • Cimicifuga racemosa = Spirituality is avoided out of fear of old suffering
  • Glonoinum = The possibility and the will to expand consciousness are missing
  • Helonias dioica = Mental images are to be stubbornly be enforced
  • Hippomanes = Embryo takes over the suffering of the mother
  • Hura brasiliensis = Lonely, having lost all friends
  • Hypericum perforatum = Remain in the pain of suffering
  • Sulfur = Awareness is suppressed

Meaning of Pain in the back of the head

The psychological meaning of pain in the back of the head is associated with suppressed anger targeted at a specific individual. In various languages, we know the expression “keeping something in the back of one’s mind” as having an open account related to resentments with someone. The physical manifestation of such or similar unprocessed issues, usually built on feelings of revenge, is symbolized by the back of the headache.

  • Cajeputum = Having sworn an oath forever and ever
  • Carbo vegetabilis = Life force is not used for healthy self-interest
  • Gelsemium sempervirens = Anxiety of expectation from withheld emotion
  • Gratiola officinalis = Expectation of being cast out
  • Nitricum acidum = Desire for hatred and revenge, but which are not formulated
  • Onosmodium virginianum = Rigidly clinging to beliefs
  • Piper methysticum = Worn down by stresses
  • Prunus spinosa = Trapped by a lack of willingness to change
  • Sanicula aqua = Having to survive in poisoned feelings

The symbolism of Temporal headache

The temporal headache symbolizes the breach of trust that has not been overcome. A severe emotional and even physical injury is a result. However, the fear of being alone is apparently worse than the injury. Therefore, no confrontation takes place. Accordingly, the conflict is pressing for release in the temporal area of the head.

  • Castor equi = Does not (dare to) demand anything in return
  • Colocynthis = Anger in the belly through adaptation and suppression of anger
  • Glonoinum = The possibility and the will to expand consciousness are missing
  • China officinalis = Feeling dependent and enslaved
  • Chelidonium majus = Remaining inactive against one’s own interests
  • Dirca palustris = Clinging to infiltrated, habitual patterns
  • Piper methysticum = Worn down by burdens due to the lack of willingness to change
  • Spigelia anthelmia = The breach of trust, the stab in the heart

Side headache

Separation of feeling (left) and mind (right). Both parts cannot be connected with each other. In the concrete life situation, the patient faces the problem of “either/or.” He believes that he has to decide for either father or mother in his own assessment mechanisms for securing care to not be alone. This situation often causes anger and disappointment, but these emotions are held back and controlled.

  • Aethusa cynapium = control prevents personality development
  • Gratiola officinalis = Expects to be rejected
  • Hippomanes = Embryo takes on mother’s suffering
  • Lilium tigrium = Either/or, Madonna-whore syndrome
  • Magnesium sulfuricum = State of war is ignored, resignation is not acknowledged
  • Niccolum metallicum = The severed head, separation of mind and feeling
  • Oleum animale aethereum Dippelii = Lack of grounding, rejection of body and matter
  • Zingiber officinale = Spiritual development takes place only in seclusion, unworldly

The meaning of Migraine

The psychological meaning of migraine is associated with the individual remaining silent in an unscrupulous situation that should be changed. Often repeating the same-sex parent’s role with all its related one-sided ways of thinking and evaluating. The same-sex parent unconsciously becomes the dominator who must not be disappointed in the process.

  • Coffea cruda = Feeling of guilt but not facing the situation
  • Gelsemium = Expactation anxiety, based on withheld emotion
  • Iris versicolor = Does not stand by his actual values
  • Lac vaccinum defloratum = Personal life path is sacrificed to needless security/backstop
  • Melilotus officinalis = Bowing to authority without perceiving it
  • Onosmodium = Rigidly clinging to beliefs
  • Robinia pseudoacacia = Dignified defenselessness out of fear of violence
  • Sanguinaria canadensis = Believes that he is no longer allowed to participate in life
