In brief: Yes

Magnesium is a compound that can help with chronic headaches.
Non herbal options: if your headaches are related to tension, chiropractic or osteopathic adjustments can provide significant relief. In some migraine sufferers, food reactions can be a significant trigger for the migraines (get rid of the food reaction, you get rid of the migraine).

Agree. One problem is low magnesium with ordinary blood tests is often misdiagnosed. Try ordering a magnesium RBC test to get a true picture of the intracelluar magnesium Then treat with an absorbable magnesium or magnesium "oil" rubbed into the skin.

In brief: Yes

There is some evidence that butterburr and riboflavin can decrease the severity and frequency of chronic headaches.
