Hyland’s Headache is a traditional homeopathic formula for the relief of symptoms of head pain due to stress and sick or nervous headache, according to its webpage. This herbal remedy is manufactured by Hyland’s, a Los Angeles pharmaceutical company founded in 1903. The company develops and produces a large product line that spans more than 3,500 natural supplements for many different ailments.
Hyland’s sells its products via many of their retailers but we were unable to find any Money Back Guarantee option or trial samples for this supplement.
The company claims Hyland’s Headache stimulates healing, leading to a faster decrease in pain intensity. The product is recommended for people that often develop headaches due to stress, being sick or having to concentrate for long periods of time. It is suggested that people that suffer from migraines can also benefit from this formulation.
Hyland’s Headache Ingredients
Hyland’s Headache contains: Iris Versicolor 3X HPUS, Gelsemium Sempervirens 3X HPUS, Ipecac 3X HPUS, and Belladonna 6X HPUS (In a Base of Lactose, USP).
Hyland’s Headache contains several natural herbal extracts but we have found two of these extracts as being particularly interesting.
Iris Versicolor can be used to treat goiters, eczema and syphilis. However, it may be toxic for humans, even in very small amounts. According to the producing company, Iris Versicolor was added into the formula due to its helpful properties in treating neuralgia occurring in the morning, beginning around the eyes and eventually involving the whole face, useful in frontal headaches with nausea.
The second ingredient is Belladonna. Many people may recognize this herb as a classic poison (it has been used in the past due to its toxic properties). Its deadly character is due to the presence of Atropine (an alkaloid). However, according to some recent studies, Belladonna may be useful in the treatment of eye diseases.
It is not uncommon for homeopathic remedies to include ingredients that are otherwise considered harmful, this working according to the principle of “like cures like”. These substances are normally added in very small amounts, to ensure that they do not have negative effects on customers. Caution is still advised, however, seeing as children and pregnant women could suffer drawbacks from such products.
The recommended dosage for adults is 2-3 tables every four hours, or as needed. Due to the content of Belladona and Iris Versicolor, it is strongly recommended avoiding going above the suggested dosage.

According to its makers, Hyland’s Headache is intended to provide relief of headaches on the left and right side of the head that extend to the neck for people who report the association of stress with physical pain, illness and strain.
This product is a mixture of herbal remedies, some of the ingredients being well known for their beneficial properties. However, the supplement also contains several ingredients with powerful poisonous qualities of which background wasn’t fully researched or understood.
