Tips for migraine: 1.Mix ¼ teaspoon of clove powder with 1 teaspoon of cinnamon oil. Apply this paste on the affected area for 20-30 minutes. 2.Avoid hot, spicy foods, fermented foods, white sugar, white flour products, and sour or citrus fruits, because they aggravate the Pitta in your body. 3.Drink more water and eat more fiber, fruits and vegetables, and whole grains. 4.Avoid excessive sugar or salt, refined foods, animal products (meats and dairy), caffeine, tea, and alcohol, as these items will further lead to aggravation of Pitta. 5.Avoid direct exposure to the sun, as migraine headaches are predominantly a Pitta disorder and can be triggered by the hot sun. 6.Head massage with Bhringraj Oil is also beneficial. This massage gives a calming effect to your nervous system.

Migraine can be managed with lifestyle changes and medications, try muscle relaxation exercises. Relaxation may help ease the pain of a migraine headache. Get enough sleep, but don't oversleep. Get an adequate amount of sleep each night. It's best to go to bed and wake up at regular times, as well. Rest and relax. If possible, rest in a dark, quiet room when you feel a headache coming on. Place an ice pack wrapped in a cloth on the back of your neck and apply gentle pressure to painful areas on your scalp. It is very important keep a headache diary. Continue keeping your headache diary even after you see doctor. It will help you learn more about what triggers your migraines and what treatment is most effective. A dose of riboflavin in appropriate dose as prescribed under supervision, also may prevent migraines or reduce the frequency of headaches. Coenzyme q10 supplements may decrease the frequency of migraines, magnesium supplements may also be used to treat migraines.

Dear seizure can occur at any age but also it can have many reasons. From your statement it seems that low sodium might be a cause. Low potassium does not cause seizure. However please upload all test results for a proper diagnosis and then a management plan.

never say that you can't meditate. If you can't meditate, then you will have to make strong effort in doing so. To have the best results, you have to make the best effort. Do not expect miracles without contributing any effort. Regards.

Can I take MRI tests to diagnose dementia ? What are the other tests to diagnose it ? I am 18 year old I have a doubt that I may have a kind of dementia?

I don't think you have dementia. If you think you're forgetful that's because you have issues with concentration or simply that you don't find something so interesting that your mind bothers to keep it. So, work on your concentration, do meditation. Dementia is common in old age. You're too young to think about that. To answer your question yes, mri do show the pathologies that may cause dementia.

Now Say-Go Migraine (Migraine -Ayurvedic View) Migraine headache is usually associated with one sided throbbing headache, with nausea (tendency of vomiting), vomiting and sensitivity to light. In migraine there is excessive stimulation (constriction and sudden dilatation) of brain and blood vessels. CAUSES-: -Improper metabolism, Suppression of natural urges, anger, jealousy, grief, poor elimination, intake of dry, pungent and salty food, intake of polluted food, mental and physical stress, viewing of TV for long periods, reading with insufficient light, sleeplessness etc. -Origin of migraine headache; Due to the causative factors, Pitta Dosha obstructs the flow of Vata dosha in brain, causing throbbing pain. MANAGEMENT-: Sneha nasya – Instillation of medicated oils can be carried to the nostrils. Shadbindu tailam or Anu tailam yield significant benefits in this condition. Apply a paste of freshly ground clay or freshly ground sandalwood to the forehead, let dry, rub off by hand and wash. Sugar powder 16 parts, Vamshalochana 8 parts, Pippali (long pepper) 4 parts, Ela (Cardamom) 2 parts, Cinnamon – 1 part. Make fine powder and mix it, keep in tight moisture free container. Take half teaspoon thrice daily with honey. Mix ¼ teaspoon of clove powder with 1 teaspoon of cinnamon oil. Apply this paste on the affected area for 20-30 minutes. Add chamomile powder to 1 cup of boiling water. Transfer the liquid to a cup. Drink when hot. It gives fast relief from migraine. Grind 10-12 grains of black pepper and 10-12 grains of rice with water to make it a paste. Apply this paste on affected area of the head for 15-20 minutes. Take ½ glass of carrot juice. Add ½ glass of spinach juice. Mix well. Drink this juice to cure migraine. Practicing meditation is highly recommended. DIET-: -Apple, mango, papaya, cheeku, guava. -Salad 1hr before lunch, 1hr before dinner. -Buttermilk, boiled rice sauted with cinnamon, cumin seeds and garlic or asafetida are good in the daytime. -Have warm and easily digestible foods, boiled and steamed vegetables, soups, vegetable juices, porridge, brown rice and whole-wheat flour. -Avoid yogurt, especially at night. -Avoid working for long hours continuously; take short breaks. Have a good night’s sleep in a dark room. -Avoid refined, oily, cold and stale food. -Avoid coffee, tea, alcohol, smoking. YOGA-: Hastapadasana, Setu Bandhasana, Marjariasana, Paschimottanasana, Bhastrika and Anulom-Vilom Pranayama. NOTE-When suffering from a migraine attack: -Lie down in a dark, quiet place. -Get some sleep. -Avoid eating. -Drink only water. -Apply hot or cold compresses.
