  1. These tips are great for migraine. In addition, I wish to add here. Doing shirshasana or the asana’s where the head is lower than rest of the abdomen helps in bringing up flow to brain. The migraine or any other headache is due to imbalance of the brain. The patients seek low audio volumes, less light and want to dim all the sensors ( like eyes by opting for dark rooms, ears by closing the room and do not like the 5 basic senses of human body to be in touch, smell and feel. This is basically the brain over amplifies these senses and headache is caused. How to bring this down, is avoid eating stuff which has its own strong aroma of kind. Add lemon with honey in 100ml water and drink. Drink enough water in the daily intake of the fluids in the body. Practicing yoga , where emphasise on “nadi shodhan” pranayama , anulom vilom, sheershasana ( at the end to improve more flow of blood ), followed by mild hot ( warm) water bath . Close eyes while doing bhramari , create the humm sound , so that your pituitary , thyroid glands get stimulated near the neck and upper abdomen. Chanting OM 21 times helps as well. I have seen the pain of migraine patients disappear totally after few of these regimes. They still carry a fear that it may come back sometime. Sometimes due to rigid thinking that these simple techniques may not cure, they reduce the efforts.
    Allopathy medicines have no cure , but most of the prescriptions used are to deal with nerves to slow down in the body. Its like a induced drug effect for better sleep and slowing down the hyper active body of the patient. Sometimes pain killers prescribed , can cause long term harm than cure. Yoga, ayurvedic massage, pranayama has been found to cure many patients from the dreaded migraine headaches.
