Obviously, someone didn't build the header correctly. I would use floor jacks and wood to raise it to where it's supposed to be but I can't say what you need to do to fix it properly. It depends on a lot of things.

Take some pictures of the beam and support areas and post them on a site such as photobucket.com and copy/paste the HTML code to your reply post so we can see what you are seeing. I would agree the beams may not have been built substantial enough or not of the proper materials. We can better tell once we see the situation.
