We are Specialized in Migraine

In Ayurveda, the word "migraine" is translated as "ardhavabedhaka." 

A migraine headache is usually an intense, throbbing pain on one, or sometimes, both sides of the head which often gets worse with movement, bright light and loud noise.The patients may experience redness, and burning in their eyes. About three out of four people who have migraines are women.

Menarche, menstruation, pregnancy, and menopause, as well as the use of hormonal contraception and hormone replacement therapy and the associated changes in hormones could be among the reasons women have more headaches than men do.

Other factors that may trigger migraine are

  • Foods sensitivities and additives.
  • Consumption of Alcohol / Caffeine etc.
  • Stress.
  • Excess sensory stimuli and strong smells.
  • Changes in wake-sleep pattern.
  • Physical factors.
  • Changes in the environment.
  • Family history


  • Migraine headcahes are recurrent headaches which attack more than 5 times a year.
  • Pain which lasts for 4-72 hours.
  • Migraine has one sided sometimes both sided headache.
  • Generally associated with nausea, vomiting.
  • Sensitivity to light, sounds and touch.
  • Pain which intensifies with increased physical activity.
  • Blurred vision and some may see bright spots or flashes of light.

As in all Ayurvedic treatments finding the root cause of any disease condition helps to design proper treatment plan that brings in balance and harmony within the body system. Ayurveda focuses on balancing the doshas. Imbalance of the three doshas causes the symptoms associated with migraine. The treatment method includes dietary changes, lifestyle modifications, Yoga along with various combinations of herbal oils, massage and specially designed Panchakarma programs like Nasya, Snehapana, and Virechana.

At Ayush, we provide treatment plans that are customized as per individual patient conditions and symptoms to treat and help complete recovery from the often debilitating migraine headaches without any side effects.
