I used to experience violent migraine headaches until I started using feverfew on the advice of a friend. Are there any side effects I should know about? I would hate to stop, because feverfew has been a godsend for me. Feverfew is a wildflower that grows abundantly in the North-eastern United States. This herb was used by ancient Greek healers.

2003 Las Rocas de San Alejandro Garnacha, Calatayud ($10). This Spanish red wine is an incredible value that is well worth buying by the case.
