Ayurvedic Treatment to Cure Migraine

Mar 23 2022


The first symptom of migraine usually is a headache or a “pounding and throbbing pain” which is experienced on any one side of the head. It may start as a dull ache but if left untreated, may transition to a severe level. The pain may shift from one side of the head to the other, or it could affect the front or the back or sometimes, the entire head.  

Phases and Duration of Migraine


  • Prodrome: This is the first and it usually lasts a few hours to a couple of days. It is also referred to as the pre-headache or pre-monitory phase.
  • Aura: This phase may last a few minutes to an hour. Some people don’t experience the aura phase at all, and some experience the aura and the headache at the same time.
  • Headache: This is known to be the worst phase. It may last from four to seventy-two hours and is regarded as a loss of man-days or unproductive days.
  • Postdrome: The phase may last a day or two. It is also referred to as a migraine hangover. Most people who experience migraine, experience the postdrome too.

Ayurveda, one of the oldest wellbeing traditions and treatment methodologies of the world and it is often used in migraine treatment. It includes several time-tested therapies that are not only proven to help manage anxiety, stress, and over-sensitivities, but are also known to boost immunity and enhance inner strength.

Ayurveda functions on the foundation of prevention, cure, and maintenance. It associates migraine with the Pitta and Vata doshas and treatment includes Dhara, Nasyam and other therapies and medications which bring the doshas to an amicable balance.

Dhara involves a natural, traditional, and medicated liquid made to cascade down, from the head to the toes. It is known to have a relaxing, soothing, and calming effect on the body and the senses. It helps improve upon the quantity and quality of sleep, auto-immune disorders, hormonal imbalances and is highly effective in conditions arising from stress. Nasyam refers to nasal application of herbs, and medicated oils.
