Headache is a very common problem. Everybody
might experience some kind of headache, which always
results from another health condition. These types
are "secondary headaches," ranging from
a relatively harmless condition like the flu, sinusitis
and impairment of vision to a serious condition such
Migraines and tension types are "primary headaches,"
as they are not caused by an underlying health condition
such as a tumour. Migraine headache is a recurrent,
one-sided headache. Migraine is experienced as throbbing,
severe headache associated with nausea and vomiting.
Sometimes warning symptoms precedes it. Tension headaches
are the most common type and usually characterized
by a steady ache rather than the throbbing pain that
is typical of migraines. They are mild and moderate,
experienced on both sides, lasts for few hours.
|What causes migraine?
A rapid widening and narrowing of blood
vessel walls in the brain and head cause migraines.
The fibres in the blood vessel wall become irritated
and cause the pain. Blood vessels in the scalp are
often involved in Migraines. Sometimes the throbbing
pain of migraine is caused by an abnormal release
of neuro chemicals in the brain such as serotonin
or noradrenaline. Migraine sufferers might have born
with a hypersensitive nervous system that makes them
prone to headaches.
There are stimulations from the life-style
or the environmental "trigger," such as
a hormonal change or certain types of food or chemical
can provoke an attack.

many forms of Bell's palsy of different causative

exciting to note certain things. I had treated a case
of Paresis with cerebral atropy. The lesions in the
brain made the 35 year old male victim to the involuntary
slipping of lower jaw and jerkings. He was distressed
with this and neurological consultations were proved
vain. Finally he approached me. He continued his treatment
for more than four years. Now he is all right.This

What are the common symptoms?
There are many forms of migraine headaches.
The classic migraine and the common migraine are the
two main types.
Most of the migraine sufferers experience
visual and other disturbances for about 15 minutes
before the headache. These symptoms, collectively
known as "aura," may include flashing lights,
zigzag lines, bright spots, loss of part of one's
field of vision, or numbness or tingling in the hand,
tongue or side of the face, weakness of an arm or
leg, dizziness, unsteadiness in walking, drowsiness,
slight confusion in thinking and inability to speak
or slurred speech. Any given person may have only
one or a few of these symptoms.
As these symptoms disappear, a throbbing
headache begins on one side of the head and severity
of the headache builds. Once the headache becomes
intolerable, people often have nausea, vomiting and
sensitivity to light and noise.
"I felt like being beaten
up by a gang! It was nightmarish, when I looked back
at it. I don't know if I can live through that again."
These are all the common
descriptions from the sufferer.
A throbbing headache begins
suddenly without warning of an attack. The location
of the headache varies. The pain may be on both sides
of the head, or it may shift from one side to another.
Nausea, vomiting and sensitivity to light and noise
usually accompany the headache. Children with migraine
experience mostly common migraines and, therefore,
do not have any warning. In addition to the headache,
some children experience abdominal pain, which gets
better after vomiting.
How can we prevent?
Prevention is a key aspect in the management
1. Pay close attention
to your diet
Eliminate all the dietary
items which could trigger your attack in sequence.
If hunger precipitates a migraine, eat frequent little
meals on a regular basis. Women who have migraines
just prior to their menstrual period should lower
the salt in their diet. This helps to decrease water
retention associated with precipitating attacks.
If stress or emotional conflict
triggers the onset of a migraine, it is important
to find ways to reduce the stress in your life by
doing regular exercises such as walking, driving,
swimming and relaxation techniques. You can practice
yoga and meditation.
3. Sleeping schedule
A regular schedule for sleep
is necessary if fatigue precipitates attacks. Fatigue
may become exaggerated in times of weather change.
How to treat?
It is true that whatever precaution
you take to prevent a Migraine attack, you cannot
find remedy as a permanent one. The cure, which gives
wonderful results by the modern medicines, also requires
more dosage and offers temporary relief. Then, how
to get rid of these problems? Consult a qualified
Homoeopathy is the only suitable treatment
to bring a real cure. I had envied the cure in many
patients. Many patients were relieved of their pain
with a single prescription itself; some times it requires
the second one. If the symptoms similarity corresponds
with the patient's illness the similar affect will
alleviate the illness at the earliest. I had enjoyed
such wonderful cures in my practice. I had treated
many cases and they showed no recurrence.
Homoeopathy medicines have wonderful
affinity to the nervous system. This is the reason
why homoeopaths are succeeding in the treatment of
a Trigeminal neuralgia, sciatica and epilepsy. The
dietary regulations are secondary to our treatment.
