Conditions Treated with Homeopathic Medicine

Migraine Headaches and Homeopathic Treatment:

Migraine headaches are one of homeopathy's most successfully treated conditions. Migraine headaches usually come at intervals, with complete freedom of pain between the attacks. They can last anywhere from a few hours to a few days. The pain is severe and can be incapacitating. For some people, the headache is followed by feelings of depression and irritability, as well as increased sensitivity to light and noise. A classic migraine is preceded by what some see as an "aura," during which the individual can feel light-headed and have a reduced field of vision, and may see flashing lights. The headaches usually start on one side of the head, and can be accompanied by nausea, abdominal discomfort, and sometimes vomiting.

Nearly 20 percent of all women and 10 percent of all men suffer from migraines, and most of them have a family history of the disorder. Some people may have daily attacks, others one every several months. The intensity and duration of the attacks may vary from one time to another. Though the symptoms vary, migraines always involve an abnormal constriction and swelling of the blood vessels in the head--constriction in the early warning phase, swelling concurrent with the pain.

Most Common Homeopathic remedies used for Migraines:
Natrum Muraticum, Belladonna, Ipecacuanha, Nux Vomica, Gelsemium, and Silica.
