My sister suffered by migraine, she consulted many doctors even she tried art of living but still she not satisfied with problem.

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda, Faridabad
Dear migraine is a autonomic nervous disorder which will take some time to cure, acc to ayurveda its the improper lifestyle and diet causing aggravation of pitta dosha in body. In an aggravated state, Pitta impairs digestion, leading to production of digestive impurities (known as ama). This ama gets stored in the manovahi strotas (mind channels), thereby becoming the cause for pains in migraine. follow the tips they will help and try shirodhara therapy it will help alot. 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.

Dementia - 10 Tips For A Caregiver!

Dementia - 10 Tips For A Caregiver!

When you are a caregiver to a patient suffering from dementia, things can get pretty tough. Improving your communication skills will help you in maintaining a steady relationship with the patient. Your loved ones need you the most in this troubled time and you can follow these tips to provide your support for a dementia patient.

  1. Create a positive atmosphere for interaction: Your body language and your approach, speaks a lot. So try to create a positive space for you and your loved one to interact in. Be pleasant and respectful and suppress your irritation and any kind of negativity.
  2. Get the patient’s attention: Try to cut off any kind of noise and distraction while you are speaking to the patient. Try to attract the attention and address him/her by their name. Identify yourself thoroughly and keep the communication strong so as to hold their attention.
  3. Convey your message clearly: Avoid any complex language and jargons when you are communicating. Use simple words and sentences coupled with slow and distinct enunciation. Do not raise your voice, as it may startle the patient; rather keep your voice soothing.
  4. Stick to simple and understandable questions: You should ask questions that can be answered in a simple ‘yes’ or ‘no’. It’s best not to ask any open-ended questions. Also, stick to one question at a time.
  5. Open your heart, eyes and ears to the patient: Gather all your patience while conversing with your loved one. Try to understand them rather than listening to them. You can suggest words, prompt a reply or a feeling may be.
  6. Assist in daily physical activities: Help your loved one to carry on with their life. Encourage them to do something that they may love. Remind them of each step on what to do next if they forget.
  7. Be engaged at an emotional level: Your loved one may get agitated or upset and you need to distract and redirect them. In order to do this, you have to connect at an emotional level with the patient.
  8. An affectionate response is essential: As patients often feel confused and anxious, it is essential that you respond to them affectionately and reassure them of the comfort and support that you are ready to provide.
  9. Remembering the old days: In most cases, a dementia patient won’t remember what happened a few hours back, but they hold a vivid memory of the old days. Try to pluck at them as that will keep your loved one engaged and active.
  10. Sense of humor: Use a sense of humor as it helps your loved one to laugh along with you and be there in the moment.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

My mother is surrounded by the disease of clotting in brain, now she feels heavy ness in head what should we do?
Physiotherapy is the solution. Because once clotting occurs it takes time to heal up. Area supplied by the vessel will become necrose and leads to anxiety symptom. Kindly consult neurologist and and give good psychotherapy to mother through the doctor.
