To associate migraine with mere “headache” is quite inaccurate. The pain experienced during a migraine “attack” is indescribable. Moreover, less than half of all sufferers are correctly diagnosed while others still suffer due to ignorance. Migraines are often mislabeled as stress headaches or sinus problems and so most of them are still left untreated.
Each year, nearly 32 million Americans suffer from migraines. Seventy percent of migraine sufferers are women suffering from menstrual migraine and thirty percent are men. Obese persons and those with a family history of migraines are more prone. “Migraine attacks” are triggered by stress and depression. Attacks can also be provoked by smoking, eating chocolate, cheese, curd and, ice-cream!! That’s the reason why it is also termed as “ice-cream attacks”. Before a headache starts, the person may have numb feelings in the lips or face and the eyes may become very sensitive to light. In such cases, it is better for the person to lie down and take a nap in the dark.
Among other alternative therapies and medicines, homeopathy has been quite successful in treating migraines. Stress and depression related migraines can be treated effectively with Homeopathy. Some of the best homeopathic medicine for migraines are as follows:
