One day a lady came to me complaining of a severe migraine. She had been having this migraine for two full days. She had been taking migraine medication but the medication did not provide her the relief she was seeking.
I did her Nadi Pariksha (Ayurvedic Pulse Diagnosis) and realised the root cause of her condition. But before I announced my diagnosis, I wanted to ask her some questions.
So, I asked this lady whether she had been skipping her meals. She said her meal timings were erratic. And she also mentioned that her migraine were shifting.
Ah! That confirmed my diagnosis.
Do you know there are three kinds of migraines?
There’s one that comes on the back of your head. Then there’s the other one which comes on any one side which aggravates with increasing daylight. This is the most common one. You feel nausea and you’re more sensitive to sound, light and strong perfumes. The third one is where the headache shifts.
Apparently, the first and third ones are the easiest to get rid of. The first one is caused by eating too much and then the third one is caused by skipping your meals. The second one too comes when you skip your meal. The only difference is that, this migraine occurs only in the morning and afternoons. This takes some work with you and if you’re up to it, you can get rid of your nagging migraine.
So, this lady had the third kind of migraine.
So, I did Marma Chikitsa and suggested she do some breathing exercises and within a few minutes, her two day long migraine vanished.
