I am Dr. Aarti Kulkarni, Ayurveda Gynecologist. Today I will talk about a very common headache disorder that is migraine. It only affects only 1 side of the head. It makes unable to the patient to do their routine work. Its symptom is present aura before the headache. What is aura? Aura is the perception of strange light, volume, confused experiences and thoughts. Migraine is seen with headaches. Its symptoms are headache, nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, diarrhea, sensitivity to light and sound. Some trigger factors are environmental factors, dietary factors, mental factors. Lifestyle factors are sleep deprivation, oversleep, smoking, meal skipping, menstruation. Mental factors are anger, depression, fear and anxiety.
For prevention, it is better to identify the trigger factor to reduce the intensity of the problem. Proper sleep and meals on time are recommended. Include cow ghee in diet if you are suffering from migraine. Yoga, whole body massage, shirodhara are very helpful. Shirodhara induces the sleep and makes the patient relaxed. Panchakarma is very helpful. Nasya and rakta moksha are very helpful. Medicated oil we put in nasya. To know more contact me through Lybrate.
