Many of you will be shocked to know that hypothyroid can be one of the causes of a non settling headache/ migraine .

Hypothyroidism results from an under functioning thyroid gland. Some of the symptoms of thyroid disease include fatigue, weight gain, headaches, constipation, hair loss, muscle pains, bone pains, low concentration. The thyroid gland is truly a wonder of human anatomy. In case of an individual suffering from migraine, a sluggish thyroid gland can exacerbate their incidence of headache episode. Low thyroid hormone secretion can have an action on neurotransmitters that can cause the brain to become overly excited and trigger a migraine. Hypothyroid patients could be also suffering from depression; anxiety and undue stress which are the most common migraine triggers.

A co-morbid condition may have an enormous effect on the provision and success of medical treatment. An effective treatment of hypothyroidism seeks to improve metabolism and reduce fatigue, thus reducing migraine and promoting a good health related quality of life.

Rebuild a Healthy thyroid with natural Healer… Homoeopathy

Homoeopathy helps to produce thyroid hormone naturally by stimulating the immune system and helps in better functioning of the thyroid gland.

Homoeopathic medicine for migraine works by stimulating the body’s own healing capacity by encouraging the body to reactivate hormone secretions.

Homoeopathic medicine for migraine is free from any side-effects.

Stress causes hormonal disturbances in the body like thyroid problems and is very effectively treated with homeopathy.

Homoeopathy is a mind-body medicine. Homoeopathy treats not only the physical complaints, but also targets the mind and gently restores mind-body equilibrium- thus it treats the patient as a whole.

If a patient is taking conventional medicine for hypothyroid, they can continue taking the medicine with homoeopathic medicine.

Slowly and steadily when the thyroid hormones come to normalcy the conventional medicine can be tapered off and the person can continue with homoeopathy to avoid recurrence.

Do it yourself

Ice is an anti-inflammatory and can help to reduce a headache.

Massage can ease neck and shoulder spasms which help to relieve headache.

Yoga, a Hindu based practice for achieving mental and physical relaxation through stretching, breathing and meditation exercises can be a stress-reducing outlet that enhances your health and well being. There is some scientific evidence showing that the mineral magnesium given daily either alone or with a daily dose of riboflavin (also known as Vitamin B2) can reduce migraine frequency. Ask your doctor before consuming any vitamins.
