Chronic headache

Hi, my sister-in-law has some brain problem. She has chronic headache and it is very disturbing for her. She looses interest in everything and gets cranky. She wants to get some 4life brain supporting product specifically transfer factor cardio. Is this thing really going to help her ? She was seen by a doctor and was told that she has brain artery shrinkage. Is there any good medicine that can help her not having headache every single day. She doesn't smoke and never had any kind of serious head injury. Thanks

What is brain artery shrinkage?  Do you mean the artery is clogged?  You have to know what you're dealing with before treating it with anything, natural or not.

It is cervical artery constricton which causes a lot of headaches.

If this is from the cervical spine pinching the blood vessel, I don't know how to fix it other than surgery or cortisone, and cortisone has its own problems and is only temporary and surgery has its problems, but again, if something physical is pinching the only way to stop this seems to be to clear away what's doing the pinching.  If it's something else and I misunderstood, then more information might help.  Sometimes massage or chiropractic or osteopathic can help ease the pinching of the cervical spine, and sometimes there are exercises you can do, sometimes taught by physical therapists.  There are natural supplements that help with inflammation and with opening blood vessels, but it's complicated, so I'd recommend reading some good books on herbs and consulting a naturopath, but again, if something is physically pinching you have to attack that as the source of the problem somehow.  Tough luck here.

Thank you guys so very much. I will do some more research and see what we can do to stop the headaches. But it sounds very complicated and needs a lot more researching. Thanks for your help and time.
