AYURVEDIC VIEW ON MIGRAINE:-

Migraine in Ayurveda is mentioned as Ardhavabedaka. Acharya Charaka explains it as cutting and churning type of pain in the half part of the head, ears, eyes and forehead. He further explains that if this headache becomes severe, it may diminish the power of vision and hearing. Ardhavabedaka or Migraine is Tridoshaja (involvement of all the three Doshas).

If the disease is dominated with Vata Dosha, patient may have dryness of skin, constipation and the pain is very acute.

If the disease is dominated by Pitta Dosha, patient may feel redness and burning sensation in the eyes, hypersensitivity to light.

If the disease is dominated by Kapha Dosha, patient may experience fatigue, depression and headache with dull throbbing pain.

Migraine is more than a headache. People experience different complications associated with headache such as

  • Nausea and vomiting.

  • Persistent Aura without Infarction.

  1. Sinus Headache: These headaches are characterized by congestion and a heavy dull feeling. Mostly seen during spring, when there is predominance of Kapha Dosha.
