All of us have come across Headaches….. a common pain in the head, going out in the sun, or not having proper sleep or with fever or not having proper food. This simple headaches would get easily relieved on taking rest, head massage or some mild over the counter painkillers and one is able to continue with his/her life easily.
But Migraines are more than just headaches. They are chronic and severely painful and for some people, they can last for days, wreaking havoc on lives and plans.
So let us know what is Migraine headache after all…
The word “migraine” is from the Greek word, it means “pain on one side of the head’
A migraine is a primary headache disorder characterised by recurrent headaches that are moderate to severe. Typically, the headaches affect one half of the head with agonising pain and last from two to 72 hours.
Associated symptoms may include nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to light, sound or smell.
The pain is generally made worse by physical activity or more so the person is not able to work and need to take rest.
Sadly most people with migraines have periods of lost productivity due to their disease however typically the condition is fairly benign. The underlying mechanisms are not fully known, though migraine causes aren’t understood, genetics and environmental factors appear to play a important role.
Also, changing hormone levels may also play a role, as migraines affect slightly more boys than girls before puberty and two to three times more women than men.
Conventional medical therapy relies on strong pain relievers and anti-nausea medicines to reduce the severity of an attack, as well as other drugs (e.g., beta-blockers, anti-depressants, anti-seizure medicines) to reduce the frequency of attacks. These drugs are not always effective or are not effective enough, leaving patients frustrated.
Homeopathy Can Be Miraculous! ……Migraine has no single cause and also emotional disturbance is the commonest single trigger mechanism, and is the most important cause of frequent and severe attacks.
Certain personality types and patterns of behaviour recur in migraine subjects; a tendency to anxiety reactions, sensitivity to stress and difficulty in handling aggressive and hostile drives.
In this respect, migraine is similar to many other “psychosomatic diseases” without demonstrable pathology but characterised by disorders of homeostasis.
Friends here is where homeopathy is rightly a boon to the patients suffering with this crippling illness.
Approach of homeopathy is to understand the patient as a whole being. His basic inherent nature, his lifestyle, the stressful situations in his life, what is he sensitive to, his eating habits, his likes and dislikes and then arriving at his individualistic medicine…
Of course the type of pain is very important since every migraine patient would have peculiar and characteristic type of pain, either throbbing, or pulling, or pulsating, etc etc.
After considering all the factors in detail when the homeopathic medicine is started, within a period of 2 to 4 weeks the intensity of pain starts reducing and when treatment is continued for sometime we have seen in all our patients, case after case, that the patients are fully free of this illness.
So friends, earlier where the patients would suffer for years and years with this migraine pain with no hope of living a normal life, now homeopathy offers a complete cure for this illness.
So isn’t it worth trying HOMEOPATHY ?
