47-year-old female had suffering with migraine for more than 20 years (since college days in India). It used to start from one side of head progressing to whole head, neck, shoulder and would continue for days and became unbearable over the years. The patient moved to U.S. from India in 2000 and had to quit her job. She started treatment with whole gamut of antiepileptic’s, antidepressants, triptans and pain medications. In addition, she was also prescribed several preventive medications like Depakote, Nortriptyline, Betaxolol along with Triptans, Ketorolac injection and Naproxen for migraine attacks. She suffered side effects from medications like weakness, tremors, liver toxicity, cognitive dysfunction and depression to the point that she even experienced suicidal thoughts and had made several trips to emergency.
She was referred to us by a family friend who had undergone treatement in our clinic earlier. She was very skeptical at first, she had tried treatments like Yoga, Acupuncture, Ayurveda, Homeopathy and biofeedback without any positive outcome. We recommended stopping all medication and our Ayurveda Treatment Therapy (AYT) we have developed over years of studies and clinical trials. Initially, she had a very tough time for first two weeks since she was taking so much medication earlier. With the research we had done, there is a direct relation between acidity, gall bladder inflammation and migraine. Mainitaing strict diet regime is paramount for successful outcome. She was prescribed to avoid all acidic, fried, processed, junk foods and drink 6 to 8 glasses of hot water daily. She followed The Ayurveda Treatment Therapy regimen in clinic for 21 days plus 7 months of Ayurveda medication. She experienced only 1 migraine attack during the year as opposed to daily migraine bouts.
Classical Ayurvedic formulations of (Narikel Lavan, Numax*, Rason Vati and Godanti Mishran) was prescribed for 21 days with regular check ups after she was discharged from the clinic.
Strict diet of 1600 calories with minimum three meals a day. Therapy has been developed after years of research in the clinic and randomized clinical trials. Please read more at: https://www.nourishdoc.com/Research/Response-to-Ayurvedic-therapy-in-the-treatment-of-migraine
After 20 years, for the first time, she was meds free and able to enjoy life free of migraine, headaches and gastritis and lead a normal life.
In Patient’s own words:
It is a miracle that after all these years of suffering and visiting India several times, I finally found out about Vaidyaji and his migraine treatment. As a researcher and pharmacist in the US, I admire Vaidyaji’s applied research and treatment of migraine and other chronic diseases and wish him lots of success in all his endeavors. I hope my story will be an eye opener to anyone suffering from this debilitating migraine headache.
