In a double-blind placebo controlled trial conducted at Norway, 68 patients with Migraine were prescribed individualised Homeopathy treatment or placebo over a period of four months. At the end of the study, it was found that the group which was prescribed homeopathy experienced significant reduction in frequency of attacks and intensity of pain as compared to the group that was given placebo. In addition, the former group also experienced overall well being with the treatment.
This is just one of the many instances where homeopathy has proved its efficacy in the treatment of migraine. A number of homeopathic practitioners and patients are proof that homeopathy helps relieve migraine effectively, gently and safely.
The homeopathy treatment of migraine entails a detailed study of the individual's constitution whereby a remedy that covers all aspects is prescribed. With continued treatment, patients notice a gradual reduction in the frequency of migraine attacks as well as the intensity of pain. During the course of treatment, there may be some phases when the pain increases due to some reason - patients can safely opt for painkiller medication at such times to overcome the acute pain. The aim of homeopathic treatment is also to reduce the need for and dependence on conventional painkillers for migraine.
The treatment period varies from patient to patient and depends on multiple factors such as the duration of the ailments (chronic cases take longer time), active avoidance of the triggers and compliance with the treatment. Overall, the response to the treatment of migraine is good in most cases. At Dr. Batra's, we have treated a large number of migraine patients with good response in most cases. We strongly recommend homeopathy treatment to all migraineurs for leading a pain-free life!
