Author(s): Gupta Rashmi, Gupta Gopal Das
Abstract: A lot of people get migraines about 11 out of 100. The headaches tend to start between the ages of 10 and 46 and may run in families. Migraines occur more often in women than men. Pregnancy may reduce the number of migraines attacks. Until the 1980s, scientists believed that migraines were due to changes in blood vessels within the brain. Today, most believe the attack actually begins in the brain itself, and involves various nerve pathways and chemicals in the brain. This has been observed that, migraine attack can be triggered by stress, food, environmental changes, or some other factors. However, the exact chain of events remains unclear. Prevention can be done by avoiding smoking, caffeine, and alcohol, exercise regularly, get enough sleep each night and meditation. Common prescribing drugs include: Beta-blockers, Anti-depressants, Anti-convulsants, Calcium channel blockers. But the permanent improvement cannot be achieved. With the use of Godanti Bhasma, herbal compound formulation and some meditation exercise will correct the chemical disturbance in the brain. This will help to complete treat the disease and also these drugs safe even in pregnancy.
