    Dr. Maurice Preter and Samuel Lieblich contributed the chapter on "Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) Approaches to Headache." Whilst the vast majority of headaches are minor ailments, some patients develop chronic symptoms that have psychiatric dimensions. These symptoms can be immensely challenging to manage and can have a serious impact on the patient’s quality of life. The relationship between headache and psychiatric disease is often rationalized as cause and effect; however, the interplay between the two is complex.
