For a long time it constituted the main form of therapeutic approach, still retaining significant application in developing countries through the popular knowledge. There is an increased demand for plant derived products in developed countries, in the form of supplements or processed extracts to promote health and general well-being. There is still limited to the prescription of herbs for clinical use due to lack of evidence about their effectiveness and possible side effects, despite the consolidated use the popular practice. This study aims to record which are commonly indicated plants and how they are used for the treatment of headache by herbalists in the city of Caruaru.
