  • MIGRAINE AND AYURVEDA

    Migraine is a very common disorder characterized by repeated attacks of headache usually unilateral with different intensity. It can involve brain, eye and autonomous nervous system. In Ayurveda this condition is referred as Sooryavarta. Soorya means 'Sun' and avarta means 'affliction' or 'blockage'. The headache gets worsened on sunrise, peaks during noon hours and reduces after evening. Even though this is the typical feature of this illness, it may not be true in all cases. Symptoms may vary based on body types and habits.

    Migraine results from blood vessel diameter enlargement and the release of chemicals from nerve fibers. According to Ayurvedic principles, migraine is a Tridoshaja disorder, out of the three doshas, Vata and Pitta dosha are the prominent factors. The traditional science of Ayurveda considers migraine to be caused by deep-rooted problems, including a sensitive nervous system and impaired digestion. The Migraine occurs due to disturbed pitt (Fire element) resulting in imbalance of vata (air element imbalance) in the brain. This imbalance arises due to improper digestion, impaired metabolism, mental and physical stress, sleeplessness, etc. Our body has a regulated system of Vata in brain that maintains the diameter of the blood vessels. These blood vessels maintain the microcirculations in brain. In the event of disturbance in the Vata level, the blood vessels get dilated causing excessive blow of blood in the brain resulting in the migraine attack.

    MIGRAINE MANAGEMENT IN AYURVEDA

    Ayurveda believes in cleaning the body from within and eradicating the disease from its roots. Ayurvedic treatment of migraine therefore is centered on the pacification of Pitta Dosha, and restoration of digestive function in the body which rectifies the Vata Dosha.

    When it comes to the treatment of migraine the treatment is provided to meet the following objectives:

    • Reduction in the frequency of attacks
    • Reduction in the severity of the attacks
    • Providing permanent cure to the disease

    All these three aspects are taken care of during our treatment of Migraine patients. The Vatta Pacifying medications provide immediate pain relief to the patient so that the patient taking treatment from us, experience an immediate reduction in the severity of pain that they experience during the attacks.

    The Vatta Pacifying medications increase the elasticity of all the blood vessels of the body so that the blood vessels of our brain which are otherwise believed to have an abrupt increase in the blood supply during the migraine attack are elastic enough to maintain a normal consistent blood supply so that the patient gets a reduction in the frequency of the attacks.

    Eating right is a tool that will launch you to a total health transformation. Ayurveda provides simple solutions to many health complaints by considering not only what we eat but how we consume our meals. The act of eating right is life-giving. The process of eating, according to Ayurveda, is something reverent and important for the development of consciousness as well as our physical health.

    Good nutrition has a major effect on the outcome and course of patient's life and recovery. If good nutrition is not provided to a stroke patient it can lead to further health problems like malnutrition, dehydration, urinary tract infections and other illnesses. Therefore in the best interest of the patient it is advisable to design a good post stroke nutrition therapy program so that a tailor made diet can be worked out for the patient. This will help the patient not only to recover physically but also mentally.
