Abstract

Background.

Migraine is generally recognized as a complex condition, which is often challenging to treat. Patients are often open to novel approaches to understanding why this pain occurs and how to prevent future attacks.

Methods.

Ayurvedic medicine, which is a 5000-year-old healing system, offers additional understanding on this disease by categorizing patients into a unique dosha (mind–body) type. Specific herbals, dietary modifications, and lifestyle changes have been utilized for thousands of years to create balance in the system to improve chronic conditions.

Conclusions.

Evaluating migraine patients utilizing the Ayurvedic model allows patients and practitioners a further layer of understanding and offers additional treatment options for the patient.
