What is migraine?
Migraine is a type of headache, which is usually intense and lasts for a few minutes to a few hours. It may last even for a day or more. It can start from any part of the head and spread to other parts or remain restricted to one part but usually begins from a specific area on one side of the head. Migraine may though sound similar to other types of headaches but is actually different. Non-migraine headaches usually have known cause like fatigue, sleeplessness, eyestrain, high blood pressure, low blood pressure, injury, sinusitis, brain tumor, emotional disturbance, fever, indigestion, constipation, fasting, weather changes, etc. whereas the exact cause of migraine is not known. Migraine attacks are usually periodic, daily at a particular time or in a particular condition, on alternate day, weekly, fortnightly or monthly. In some cases it may even be irregular. Migraine does not indicate a psychological problem. Is not contagious either.
How does Migraine start?
Migraine attack may start suddenly without a prior indication or begin with a warning sign, which is sensory in nature and is called "aura". The term "aura" as related to migraine means different to what it means in Reiki. This warning sign or aura is not the same for every one. It is more of individual than general in nature. It may be a particular sensation in any part of the body, like tingling, warming, pain, numbness, pricking feeling like that of a pin or needle or any other special sensation. The aura may also be visual like flashes of light, tingling of stars, shaking or rotation of objects or yet another indication.
Migraine is quite irritating and bothersome. In severe cases migraine headache might considerably reduce the efficiency and even incapacitate the sufferer for some time. The person might feel general weakness once the attack is over. Discomfort due to fear of getting another attack any time also affects the efficiency.
Homeopathy has more than 50 medicines for treatment of different conditions of migraine, one-sided headaches and other types of headaches. Some folks might be skeptical about homeopathy but the fact is that homeopathy can cure migraine and other types of headache permanently. Our experience with cured cases shows that one-sided headaches are comparatively simpler to treat with homeopathic medicines, which are safe to use even for children and pregnant women. If you wish to know more about this wonderful system, you would find lot of useful information in the books and on Internet.
