Migraine: According to the latest National Health Report, it is clear that many people in the country are suffering from severe headache problems like nerve weakness, stroke and migraine. In 2019, more than 213 million people in the country were diagnosed with migraine. Surprisingly, 60 percent of these cases are reported in women. The report titled The Burden of Neurological Disorders in States of India: The Global Burden of Disease Study 1990-2019 revealed all types of headache problems, including migraine and tension-type headache.
In this study jointly conducted by Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR), Public Health Foundation of India (PHFI), Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, more than 488 million people across the country suffer from neurological disorders. This has been revealed in the Neurological Disorders 2019 report.
Migraine cases are high among women in India.
Dr. K Siva Balaji, Associate Professor, Department of Amrita School of Ayurveda Salakya Tantra, Kollam, told Tv9 that women in India are mostly victims of migraine. “More than men, women suffer from migraines. People with vata and pitta doshas in the body face this problem more and more.’ He said. He said that there is no complete cure for migraine and only Ayurvedic medicines can control this serious condition. Many migraine sufferers who come to them report relief from the treatment.
The food we eat can trigger migraines.
Dr. Balaji explained that a person’s eating habits can affect migraine frequency. ‘If a person does not eat a healthy diet or eats late at night they may develop migraines. Almost all diseases occurring in the body are caused by unhealthy diet and untimely lifestyle. However, according to Ayurvedic advice, migraine sufferers should avoid curd and undercooked foods. Also, do not eat reheated food.
Migraine effect varies from person to person. The treatment will be the same. ‘What we need is relief from pain. Treatment is given depending on the severity of the pain. It involves the practice of external remedies, oils and other pain relief methods including panchakarma. Treatment for chronic migraine sufferers includes panchakarma along with shirodhara.’ Dr. Balaji explained.
Even if the patient does not have any migraine attacks for some time after the treatment, the doctor should be consulted for regular checkups. In this way doctors can understand the effect of drugs on the patient. According to experts, lifestyle changes such as at least 8 hours of sleep, regular diet, quitting smoking and drinking, and walking for at least 30 minutes every day are mandatory.
