Migraine is defined as a very serious and recurrent attack of headache accompanied by a feeling of nausea. The frequency of migraine varies from person to person, as well as their severity. In general, headaches in migraine are found only on one side of the head. Migraines are caused by vasodilation (widening of blood) which causes the release of chemicals from nerve fibers that wrap around pillars in the brain. The enlargement of these blood vessels across the nerves that spins around releases chemicals. The chemicals cause inflammation, pain, and further enlargement of the artery. The increasing expansion of the arteries amplifies pain. There will always be some triggers that cause the disease and can vary from person to person.
According to Ayurveda, Vata and Pitta are the vitiated doshas in Migraine. Nasyam, Thalam, Thalapothichil are the treatments done for this condition.
