There is no medicine for H/A OR MIGRAINE. Not only these but for amoslt all painful diseases. Hence they become chronic.Acidity, excessive wind, cold , heat, sour food and sinusitis, constipation, intestinal inflammation;Blockage in the flow of Vital Energy are their causes. None of them can be treated with medicine. Our 100% success in treating migraine H/A confirms it.Acupuncture is the best treatment. I can treat it with naturopathy and YOG, but how can you manage pl see.Avoid late sleeping if possible;spicy, sour, stale bakery foods and alcohole.Sweet foods, sweet fruits, milk, rice and good sleep will help you.But you try one herbal remedy- two drops of drumstick leaves' juice in opposite nostril if one side pains and both nostrils if full H/A will give you rescue. Betel leaf helps but it isvery strong. Source(s):SHREE SWASTHYAYOG TREATMENT, TRAINING RESEARCH INSTITUTER.H. – 19, Jhulelal Society, Sector – 2/E, Airoli, Navi Mumbai, INDIA.
