ABSTRACT

Migraine is a result of various changes in our brain which become a cause for severe headache. It usually occurs due to sensitivity of light/ sound or smell. Approx 25% of people over whole population is suffering from migraine. It can be predicted that after adolescent stage, the ratio of migraine between male and female is 1:3. Pain in half of the head is defined as Ardhavabhedaka in ayurveda. Migraine can be compared with this disease. Acharya Charak and Sushrut have given description about migraine as a separate diagnostic unit although Acharya Vagbhatt has included this disease in vataja shiro roga. Treatment of Ardhavabhedaka can be done by yoga, panchakarma and some herbal drugs. Gorakhmundi (Sphaeranthus indicus) is one among them which plays great role in treatment of migraine.

Keywords: Migraine, Ayurveda, ardhavabhedaka, Sphaeranthus indicus, Pharmacological activities, Traditional Uses.
