Migraine - How Homeopathic Remedies Can Help You Treat The Problem?

A migraine is a Neurovascular disorder. It is episodic with severe headache that is intense, often with severe giddiness, severe sensitivity to light, nausea, and vomiting. The affected individual recognizes that a migraine is on the way by its unusual sensation. The pain can last anywhere from half an hour to a couple of days and is periodic in nature. Though the exact reason for a migraine has not been identified but can be triggered by stress, caffeine, hormonal fluctuations, excessive cold or hot weather, excessive burnout, and strong odours. 

When Headache is termed as migraine: 

More than four attack for simple migraine without aura & two or more attack for complex migraine (with aura) 

Main symptoms of migraine: 

  • Throbbing, pulsating pain or dull congestive aching pain.
  • Dimness of vision and Nausea with or without vomiting 
  • Hyper reactive to all senses like noise, light, smell, touch etc. 
  • Hemicrania (one sided headache) or pain on the top of head (vertex). 


  • Triggering factors are responsible almost in each case. 
  • Gradual onset of pain (rarely sudden) and goes to the pick & lasts for variable time (Hours to days). 

The actual episode of a migraine can be broken into 4 stages, and though a person may not know in the first instance, with recurrent attacks, one becomes aware of when an attack is about to happen. 

  1. Prodromal – There could be altered bowel movements, irritability and mood swinging, neck stiffness & tiredness. 
  2. Aura – There could be visual disturbances along with pain in the legs and arms, twitching movement in muscles. 
  3. Attack – This is the actual pain on one or both sides of the head along with nausea, vomiting, blurred vision and sensitivity to light. 
  4. Postdrome – The person would be left exhausted and drained and needs a couple of days to get back to normal. Homeopathic treatment is supposed to be the best treatment for migraine because 
    • It does not use pain killers (like allopathic). 
    • It has no side-effects. 
    • No palliation. 
    • Recovery from the disease (or it is effective to cure the disease). 

In homeopathy the holistic approach to cure the disease is quite unique, and is called Individualization. There is no other treatment procedure which follows individual type of medicine selection. That is, the doctor has to select the best medicine for each case of each individual and medicine may be different for the same disease. In homeopathy, there is no specific medicine for any disease condition. This toughest selection can be done by proper and through case-taking by a good homeopathic physician. An online search can give you multiple medicine names which claim to work for migraine headaches but be careful to avoid self-medication.
