Headache has become a common problem especially with the urban society. People from almost all strata irrespective of the age, gender or class suffer from this problem partly due to the pollutants and noise in the atmosphere and partly due to the wrong lifestyle that is becoming the order of the day.
Drinking fizzy and alcoholic drinks is seen as a statement. Having a glass of milk will be termed as being immature to have hard drinks. Ayurveda strictly says a NO – NO to alcoholic drinks and chemically treated beverages. Root for many headaches has been traced to alcoholic drinks. Regular intake of alcohol may even lead to psychiatric problems. Irregular sleeping habits do aggravate headaches. Skipping meals or irregular timings for having meals further lead to serious consequences. Stress due to competition, family or any other reason leads to heaviness of the head and subsequently headaches.
Ayurveda has listed some herbs which can be used to cure and reduce headaches. Betel leaves known for analgesic and cooling properties give immediate relief when applied to the centre of the head during a headache.
Garlic and ginger are known to be painkillers in Ayurveda. Bishops weed is very effective in migraine. Bishops fumes if sniffed or seeds taken directly can be soothing for a person suffering from migraine. Almonds soaked overnight, grinned into paste and taken with ghee in the morning are the best bet for treating old headaches which trouble a large portion of the population. Fresh lemon squeezed in warm water and drunk empty stomach leads to reduction in headache resulting from the gas in the body.
