Medical History:

40-year-old female had been diagnosed with migraine at the age of 34 and would experience excruciating pain in her head. She had to shut all doors and windows and switch off all lights during attacks and take painkillers to get some relief. She would have these attaches every 15 days and the pain was so unbearable that she would cry.

Case Management:

She consulted with me at AMRI hospital in Kolkata. We prescribed her the Ayurveda Treatment Therapy medicines and advised her to modify her diet. After about four months of medication, she was free from migraine attacks.

She has prescribed a combination of the following medicines developed by a lot of research studies and randomized clinical trials listed here

Combination of five Ayurvedic formulations:
Narikel Lavan (NL)
Sootshekhar Rasa (SR) 
Sitopaladi Churna (SC)
Rason Vati (RV) 
Godanti Mishran (GM)

Narikela Lavan
Narikel shell - Cocus nucifera
Saindhava lavana - Rock salt
Shell is taken out from a ripe coconut and a hole is made at the top from which rock salt is out until the water in the coconut rises. After that, a clay cloth is layered around the coconut and put in the furnace that contains cow-dung. After it is cooled, the coconut is powdered.

In the patient’s own words:

Vaidya Shikha came as an Angel to my life. I am and will always be very grateful to her. Thank you Vaidya Shikha for being my doctor!

Case Discussion
Digestive issues are prevalent in patients with migraine. Research suggests that approximately half of the patients with migraines have reflux symptoms, and 22 percent have GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease). Digestion is the key to maintaining good health based on Ayurvedic teachings. The gut and the brain are connected. From an Ayurvedic perspective, GERD can result from an excessive quantity of pitta heat, or inflammation, from the gastrointestinal tract. Ayurvedic professionals may recommend diets based on the qualities of each dosha.
Modifying diets based on food intolerances and allergies can decrease migraine occurrence too. 75% of migraine sufferers are allergic to at least five foods.
Migraines can be brought on by a Pitta-Vata imbalance. The imbalance in the Pitta dosha manifests as a searing, burning, sharp pain. This pain can be accompanied by visual sensations and light sensitivity that can be exacerbated by heat. Migraines may be triggered by eye-strain. Causes include digestive imbalances and the accumulation of digestive radicals. 
For migraines, the trick is to stick to the diet and lifestyle that will pacify the predominant dosha that is causing your headache. For migraines, choose a Pitta-Pacifying diet the vast majority of the year, so adding more bitter, sweet, and astringent foods and avoiding acidic, pungent, salty, and sour foods. 
Since imbalanced digestion is at the origin of the majority of headaches, it's sensible to eat lighter foods for the first two or three weeks. Gradually add heavier foods that are considered balancing out of the dosha-pacifying diet. Favor whole, freshly-cooked, organic foods that are served hot and are easy to digest. Ordinarily, a Lacto-vegetarian diet is recommended, with moderate dairy Products, legumes, nuts, and seeds. It is a good idea to eat your main meal at Noon once the digestive forces are the most powerful, and eat lighter at dinner and breakfast.
