A 34-years-old female, Mrs. T. S. K. (PIN: 36265) approached Life Force on 24th March 2018 for the treatment of her migraine headache, which was troubling her for 10 months.
She complained of pain on the left side of the head that would last for 2-3 days, once in 2-3 months. She used to suffer from giddiness, nausea, and pain. Her pain used to be severe in intensity. She could point the spot where the pain was maximum. It used to remain for 2-3 days and used to occur with the frequency of once in 2-3 months.
She had started suffering from these episodes after she had to shift to Mumbai unwillingly as there was no one to take care of the children. Her complaints used to trigger due to the lack of sleep, light, and heat. She used to feel better after having rest and in the darkness. She used to have painkiller once in a day or when experiencing an intense headache. She used to take Sibelium and Naproxin tablets during pain when her pain would be quite severe.
Her appetite was average. She had cravings for chicken, fish, and spicy food. She had an average thirst. She had an average perspiration. Her menses were regular. She was lean and thin. Her sleep was disturbed.
She was working as a mall supervisor. But, right now was not in any job. Her husband was an electrical Supervisor. She was irritable by nature. Recently, she had shifted to Mumbai. Her kids were with the grandparents.
She did not have any significant past medical history. Her father had hypertension and cervical spondylitis, and her mother had asthma. Based on the above homeopathic case history, she was prescribed with research-based medicine thrice a day for 2 months. After 2 months of the treatment, she reported 75% improvement in the relief in the terms of frequency and intensity of her migraine.
In the second follow-up after 4 months of the treatment, she reported 75% improvement in the relief in the terms of frequency and intensity of her migraine. She was better in spite of the gap of 15 days of medicines.
In the third follow-up after 6 months, she reported 100% improvement in her recovery from her migraine. She had experienced just one episode after a hair wash.
In the fourth follow-up after 8 months of the treatment, she reported 100% improvement in the relief in the terms of frequency and intensity of her migraine. She had experienced just one episode just the day before follow-up due to the heat present in the atmosphere.
In the fifth follow-up after 10 months, she reported 100% improvement in recovery from her migraine without any relapse of a migraine. So, in just 10 months of the treatment, she was feeling all better with a complete relief from her migraine in terms of frequency, intensity, and severity. Also, her dependency on painkiller was reduced and stopped.
This case study highlights that homeopathy is quite effective in managing migraine. Homeopathy offers a complete relief from a migraine effectively and safely without any side-effects. In addition to this, homeopathy also helps minimize the dependency on painkillers substantially.
