Nagarjuna Ayurveda


How Ayurvedic treatment can be beneficial for migraine

Migraine is a chronic neurological syndrome characterized by recurrent severe headaches, irritability, and nausea. The intense pain in migraine usually starts in the forehead, around the eyes, or one or both sides of the head and it worsens gradually. Loud music or bright lights can further aggravate the condition. Migraine attacks can last from a couple of hours to even a few days and the severity of the pain can be disabling.

In Ayurveda, migraine pain is classified as a tridoshic condition. The traditional medical system of Ayurveda can be highly effective in reducing migraine headaches through a systematic treatment procedure.

Ayurvedic view regarding migraine

According to Ayurveda, migraine pain occurs due to an imbalance in tridosha or the three basic energy types: Vata (wind energy), Pitta (fire energy), and Kapha (water energy). Out of these three, Vata and Pitta dosha are mainly responsible for this disorder. Their imbalance causes deep-rooted problems in the body, including weakened digestive and nervous systems. Vata is responsible for the nervous system and brain activity. Pitta controls the dilation of the blood vessels. By studying the external symptoms, it is possible to identify which of the three doshas is causing the attack.

  1. Migraine due to Vata dosha: Constipation, dry skin, and acute pain
  2. Migraine due to Pitta dosha: Irritability, sensitivity to light, burning sensation in the eyes
  3. Migraine due to Kapha dosha: Headache with throbbing pain, nausea, fatigue
