A migraine is a type of headache in which only one side of your head hurts. These headaches tend to be pulsating or throbbing in nature. They might be observed one side alternatively or both sides is also possible. You will also feel nauseated and become extremely sensitive to light as well as sound. The intensity of a migraine will also vary with some attacks being very severe while other attacks will be a lot more moderate.
Homeopathy is very good at treating migraines. Homeopathic philosophy does not favor the use of temporary painkillers or shortcuts for the treatment of migraine or for that matter any disease. Homeopathy tries to go deep down into the cause of the problem and completely eradicate the tendency of a patient to have these migraine headaches now and then.
Belladonna is one of the most common homeopathic medicines also used to treat migraines. The type of migraine belladonna is prescribed for is one where there is an intense pulsating, throbbing headache. Exposure to light, cold as well as noise often triggers the migraine attack. People who are prescribed belladonna will also feel an extreme fullness in their heads.
This medicine is used when there is excess congestion in the head. This type of migraine attack is probably the most severe. The migraine improves with sleep. However, it can get worse when you have to walk or are exposed to the heat.
Spigelia is a very common homeopathic remedy for migraines. It is used when the left side of your head hurts. There can also be a severe pain in your eyeballs which gets worsened by moving your eyes too much. Finally, the pain is extremely pulsating and throbbing in nature, making this an extremely painful form of migraine.
