Headache


Headache is a symptom rather than a disease. According to Ayurveda, improper diet and lifestyle causes vitiation of the vata and kapha dosha. Vata is obstructed by the kapha in the head region, causing headache. As the pain intensifies, vata also vitiates pitta dosha, causing a burning sensation in the head, nausea and vomiting. Headache is also often caused by emotional stress, overwork or insomnia.

Causes :

There are many types of headache that are considered to be primary headaches, although on occasion they can be symptoms of another illness and, therefore, secondary conditions.

Chronic headache could be indicative of an underlying pathology.

The other causes of headache include:

  1. Injury/trauma
  2. Refractive errors
  3. Stress
  4. Lack of sleep
  5. Physical exhaustion

Treatment :

  • According to Ayurveda, aim of treatment is to eliminate stress, strengthens digestion and balance the doshas.
  • Avoid exposure to strong sun (for migraine), wind ( in case of tension headaches) and fog, cold, or wet conditions (for sinus headaches).
  • Abhyanga (oil massage)- helps to improve the circulation, boost digestion and purify toxins from the tissues and organs.
  • Nasya
  • Shirodhara
  • Internal medications to pacify vitiated vata and kapha is prescribed.
  • Yogasana -helps to increase blood flow to the brain and ease tensions in the mind and body.
