Dr Kirti Says

Thank you for your enquiry.

As per your enquiry you are 42 years old female suffering from migraine and insomnia since 10 years.

You have tried homeopathic medicines and you did not get results. At present you take Topitamate and Etizolam as precautions and now you want some Ayurveda remedy to get rid of it.

Migraine is not simply a head ache but it’s a full body syndrome. In your case insomnia and migraine headache go hand in hand. As you have migraine headache you have insomnia and vice versa.

Migraine can have various triggers like, stress, depression, fatigue, altered sleep-wake cycles, hormones, diet, certain medications missing or delayed meals, odors, bright light, sound, weather and altitude changes, environmental toxins, magnesium deficiency.

The reaction to these triggers can be in hours, days later and even when there is a ‘break in the action’.

According to Ayurveda it is called as Ardhavabhedaka (hemicrania) shiro-rag (headache).

Ayurveda sees both physical and psychic causes to the ailment and it can occur due to the result of imbalance in any of the three Dosha (vata, pitta or kapha).

However most of the times a migraine head ache appears to be due to vata-pitta imbalance. 

The treatment is determined by the specifics of each situation; therefore, to successfully treat the headache it is very important to gather information about the causes.

Furthermore use of herbs like Gota kola, cardamom, Dwarf Morning Glory, Jatamansi is very beneficial to relive the tension, stress and to get rid of the headache.

They increase Melatonin, relieve mental fatigue & anxiety, support brain function and induce deep and restful sleep as well.

Moreover visit the testimonial section to see and listen to individuals that have truly benefited from these supplements.

A vata-pitta pacifying treat to help prevent headache and induce relaxation, have medicated warm milk,ghee(Clarified butter) is good as well.

Ayurveda reccomends therapies like Nasya (medicated oil nasal drops) and head masaage to pacify pitta dosha.

Ayurveda therapies Nasya (medicated oil nasal drops)/ rubbing medicated ghee/ oil into the souls of the feet, palms of hands and forehead are also good for pacifying pitta.

Yoga practices in moderation to avoid pitta, vata or kapha imbalance. Practice of shitali breath as a cooling pranayama is highly recommended.

In migraine it is important that the triggers have to be avoided. Set up support systems to help maintain – regular appointments with the yoga therapist, bodywork outs, social dancing etc.

Avoid skipping meals and consume water in moderation every day, avoid insomnia.

Develop a daily practice to deal with stress, maintain a daily diary to keep a tract of the warning signs.

It is important that you strengthen the cardiovascular system by regular aerobic exercise, emphasize on flexibility and strength of the spine, and the shoulder area sun salutation (Surya Namaskar).

Read uplifting books, resolve conflicts, plan a vacation, weekend retreats, support a worthwhile cause, get out into nature, and connect with animals and their unconditional love.
