Migraine is a problem that a lot of us face, and only someone who has had migraine attacks can tell you how excruciatingly painful it can be. Taking analgesics and other medications can provide temporary relief, but the dependence on these medicines grows, and there could also be side effect. That is why several people look for Ayurvedic Clinic in Delhi to help resolve their migraine pains.

Ayurveda counts the imbalance between vata and pitta as the foremost reasons for the splitting headache that we recognize as the symptom of migraine. This imbalance is caused and accentuated by the following factors: stress, tension, extended exposure to sun, and wrong diet. Normally an Ayurveda Doctor in Delhi would recommend a combination of Nidaan Parivarjan (elimination of toxins), Pitta-Vata Shaman (restores balance or ‘ojas’ in body) and Medhya Rasayana (improves blood circulation) to cure you of your migraine attacks, but apart from these specific treatments, Ayurveda also recommends a change in the lifestyle to prevent recurrence of migraine.

  • Certain food groups and types need to be avoided. Food that is too hot and spicy should be avoided, as also fermented foods, white flour products, citrus products (fruits) and white sugar should be kept at arm’s length.

  • Too much of sugar and salt in food is not recommended.

  • Stimulants like coffee or tea, and also alcohol, should be avoided as much as possible.

  • Again, certain food groups need to be taken in larger quantities, like fibrous foods, whole grains and lots of green vegetables and fresh fruits.

  • You should not stay out in the sun for too long. Even if going out can’t be avoided once in a while, do ensure to use umbrellas and eye shades.

  • Regular (at least once a week) head messages with Ayurvedic oils go a long way in calming your nerves and keeping those headaches away.
