I have had the honor to be trained under my father Padma Shree Vaidya Balendu Prakash whose research I have shared with you. I share some of the common Ayurvedic formulations for treatment of Migraine and share evidence that has been collected for successful outcome as well.
Why Ayurvedic formulation is effective
Based on the inputs obtained from the ayurvedic practitioners, migraine is caused by the increased level in pitta which is nothing but an imbalance in the acid-alkaline level in the body. This condition could be effectively treated by ayurvedic formulations along with a regular diet which will help restore the imbalance.
