Ayurvedic therapy for migraine »

Migraine is a chronic neurological disease and, with approximately 8 million sufferers in Germany, one of the most common forms of headache. During the attacks, sufferers suffer not only from headaches, but also from other limitations that usually render them incapable of acting. Many sufferers have so many attacks that a normal life is hardly possible.

In addition to acute therapy with painkillers and special migraine medications and prophylactic medication, Western medicine also offers recommendations for lifestyle changes and relaxation. However, experience has shown that these are not effective or feasible for all sufferers. Here, above all, the individual approach of Ayurveda has a very high value. Through therapy of the current imbalance, it is possible to drastically reduce the frequency of migraine attacks and many sufferers are attack-free for long periods of time.

In addition, migraine is a very good example of the fact that in Ayurvedic diagnosis one must always include knowledge from allopathic medicine and not rely purely on the scriptures. Many colleagues see migraine as a Pitta disease and treat accordingly. However, through the knowledge of allopathic medicine about the peculiarities of the migraine brain, we can today make a completely different classification and thus gain a deeper understanding of the needs of the sufferer.

In this lecture, Nadine Webering, MD, brings together her knowledge and experience from treating people with migraines as both a neurologist and an Ayurvedic physician, creating a holistic view of this common and important condition.
