    What does it do?

    Clears Wind And Supports Head Comfort

    Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) theory explains three differentiations of discomfort in the head. These include the invasion of external wind into the meridians and collaterals, uprising of Liver Yang, or deficiency of Qi and blood. It's the first type of discomfort that Headelight™ addresses.

    So how does Wind invade in the first place? The yang meridians of the hand and feet meet in the head. Furthermore, the Qi and blood that flows throughout your organs all flow towards the head. And when an external evil such as Wind attacks, it strikes the upper body first. When this happens, it causes an alteration or inhibition of Qi and blood circulation in the head (and the meridians that travel into the head), causing discomfort in the area.

    Headelight™ acts to clear Wind and relax the head.

    How does Headelight™ work?

    The first herb in the formula, Chuan Xiong (Szechuan Lovage Root) expels wind and moves Qi upwards in the meridians leading to the head. The next herb, Du Huo (Angelica Root) also dispels wind invasions, as does the third herb in the formula Fang Feng (Siler, aka Laserwort), which also resolves Liver disharmony.

    Qiang Huo (Notopterygium Root) disperses wind, cold and dampness, and unblocks obstructions in the channels (meridians). Gao Ben (Chinese Lovage Root) expels wind and cold, while Man Jing Zi (Vitex Fruit) disperses wind and heat in the Liver Channel, which leads to the eyes and head.

    Next, Bo He (Mint) removes wind and fire, especially from the head region. Bai Zhi (Angelica Root) resolves external wind and cold patterns as well as dampness, while the last herb in the formula, Dang Gui (Chinese Angelica Root) is a blood tonic.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great help! I bought this product three weeks ago. I generally have headaches 2-3 times a week. (I've never been diagnosed with migraines) I started taking the recommended dose and I didn't get a headache for the first 4 days. I got a headache on the 5th day. I increased my dosage to 10 pills a day and I am happy to say, I've been headache free! Through weather changes and all!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stop the pounding in your head. Migranoff aka Pian Tou Tong Pian works wonders. My husband did not respond well to Over The Counter headache remedies and when my herbalist suggested Migranoff, he tried it and now can't live without it Thank you Active Herbs for offering great products at an affordable price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solved persistent occipital headache pain I started using this three weeks ago and it has had a major effect on a previously untreatable headache. I was in pain most of the time for the past several months at the base of my skull. It felt like a blockage but chiropractic was offering only temporary relief. I have taken daily 5 tablets 2-3x per day and my headache pain has subsided dramatically. For a few days it was gone, so I stopped taking the medicine, and now it is slowly creeping back so I am going to continue taking it for a while longer and see what happens.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Migranoff for Headaches Although I haven't been using the Migranoff for long and I don't actually suffer from migraines, I do believe it has been helpful for the menopausal type headaches that I get, sometimes every day. They have been less than usual taking this product and I do plan on ordering more to give it a longer trial.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Prevents migraines I have had a couple headaches since I got this and I've given it to others. All of us share in one experience: it helps take the edge off but doesn't get rid of the headache entirely. I do think it can prevent headaches from turning into migraines. I haven't gotten one since I started using it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life changer I’ve been taking these for a few months now and they have seriously changed my life. I used to get lots of headaches, especially during my period... for 20 years I got them. Sometimes migraines too. I rarely get headaches now. Not having to take pain medicine is really wonderful.
