Ayurvedic Care for Migraine Attacks

Ayurveda: the science of life, the oldest medical science known to mankind has described migraine as Ardhavabhedaka (one-sided headaches) / Sooryavarta (both sided headaches) that come under diseases of the head (Shiroroga). While involving the eyes, ears, temporal region, forehead and eyebrows, migraine headache occurs due to both constrictions and dilatation of the blood vessels.

Migraine occurs due to the vitiation of bodily humor (Tridosha) with the predominant vitiation of motion force (Vata Dosha) and metabolic energy (Pitta Dosha). A persisting faulty lifestyle & dietary regimen lead to the constriction of blood vessels which reduce the blood supply to the brain. During this consistent constriction period, if, for some reasons (oily/spicy food, prolonged exposures to sunshine, anger, stress, and grief) the blood vessels dilate to their standard diameter (a physiological change) to provide an adequate blood supply to the brain, it causes a severe headache known as a migraine attack.
