Recurrent Headache - How It Can Be Treated Through Ayurveda?

Headaches are one of the most common symptoms experienced by most people. While a headache is not a disease per se, it is a manifestation of some underlying disease and can affect the quality of life. The underlying cause could range from something as innocuous as a hunger headache to a slightly more severe one like migraines to underlying neurological and vascular conditions like temporal arteritis. Common forms including a sinus headache, tension headache, cluster headaches, and migraines.

Ayurveda believes that the body goes through disease if there is an imbalance in one of the key components of the body, Vata, pitta, and Kapha. Restoring the balance will take care of not just the symptom but restore overall body health. Relief, therefore, is longer lasting with Ayurvedic solutions. Depending on the type of a headache, the imbalance varies, and treatment would differ and is aimed at restoring the lost balance.

Massage: Using natural oils like peppermint oil, lavender oil, or castor oil to massage the forehead or the temples can produce great relief. This also causes improved circulation and nerve stimulation, leading to pain relief.

  1. Add substances that produce cold like khus khus, buttermilk, ghee, and coconut water. Try castol oil and shikakai for hair wash and see a headache vanish.
  2. A mixture of green tea with a lemon squeezed in is one of the quickest reliever for a headache.
  3. A paste or lemon rind that is applied externally on the forehead and temples also provides relief from a headache and a soothing effect for the affected individual.
  4. A paste of cinnamon mixed with any essential oil or plain water can also be applied on the forehead and/or temple region for relief from the pain.
  5. Watermelon juice with sugar reduces the heat produced by the body and relieves a headache.
  6. Crush some ginger, add it to water, and bring it to a boil. This contains a lot of oils from the ginger, which is very soothing for the stomach. This has pain relieving properties and helps in relieving headaches.
  7. A glass of warm water with honey in the morning on a daily basis takes care of chronic headaches. It is advisable to drink this on an empty stomach daily.

In addition to the above remedies to relieve the headache, the following measures should be followed for prevention and/or reducing the frequency of headaches.

  1. Diet: Eating right by avoiding headache-inducing substances like cheese, chocolates, eggs, etc. On the other hand, going hungry can lead to hunger headaches.
  2. Exercise: The neck, shoulders, and scalp should be eased frequently through regular exercise. This also improves blood flow, thereby reducing headaches.

Try these measures and see your headache disappear.

It may be migraine headache. And it needs to be treated by constitutional homoeoapthic medicine. For that you will have to consult for detailed case study. You may take Sanguinaria Nitri 200 1 dose. Till then.

Homeopathic philosophy does not favour the use of temporary painkillers or short cuts for the treatment of migraine or for that matter any disease. Homeopathy tries to go deep down into the cause of the problem and completely eradicate the tendency of a patient to have these migraine headaches now and then. That is why it takes some time for the medicines to show results. They do not have a short term or temporary effect like the allopathic painkillers. On the contrary, homeopathic medicines have long term effects and work to completely cure the migraine problem. After a couple of months of homeopathic treatment for migraine headaches, patients are pleasantly surprised to experience a completely pain free or headache free life. This is the beauty of Homeopathy.  You can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance and permanent cure without any side effects

Hi Doctors, I feel pain in the middle of the throat and left side of the neck below the ear whenever I try swallowing something. The pain also triggers a momentary head ache every time. I can feel slight stiffness in the left part of my neck. Earlier this was diagnosed as LPR a few weeks ago, and after 10 days with Nexpro 40 mg this had vanished and reappeared again now. Not sure if this is a throat infection or LPR. Swallowing causes slight ear oain too. Please help.

It seems like you are having throat infection but as you already had lpr I need more details.. Do you have other symptoms of LPR. Do you have heartburn? Or any other symptoms?my advice is to go for consultation to diagnose weather it is throat.infection or LPR I can suggest Medicine only after confirmation of diagnosis. Homoeopathy offers very good results in both complaints.
