migrainehomeopathy Migraine Headache Treatment with Homeopathic Medicines

There is no doubt that an endocrine factor has a major importance, as well as, the family history.
 Migraines have to be differentiated from other types of headaches.
 A common migraine is pulsating, has unilateral (eye, temple, occiput, etc) periodical pain, with a dyspeptic syndrome (dyspepsia, eructations, vomiting), and often has sight disorders (oversensitive to light, dim vision).
 A particular psychological picture surrounds  the physical symptoms :
 • perfectionist : CYCLAMEN
 • rigidity : SILICEA 
 • tendency to underestimate themself : ANACARDIUM ORIENTALE
 • loss of self-confidence : LYCOPODIUM.
 The richness of the symptoms makes this disease a perfect field of action for homeopathic remedies which are essential to heal these patients.
 The painful side can be characteristic of the remedy (right eye for IRIS VERSICOLOR, left side for SPIGELIA), but it is not sufficient.
 Every  remedy has its own set of symptoms that can be used to  make the homeopathic diagnosis.
 (See :dyspepsia, vision, vomiting, etc).
