Migraine is a benign and recurrent syndrome of headache, nausea, vomiting and other symptoms of neurological dysfunctions in varying admixtures. It is as one of the diseases where cause is exactly not known. Migraine, the second most common reason for cerebral pain afflicts around 15% of women and 6% of men. With the disease afflicting majority of the people in their prime age i.e. from second decade to fifth decade, it is affecting their professional and social life, hampering their health. Ardhavabhedaka can be scientifically correlated with Migraine due to its cardinal feature ‘half sided headache’ and also due to its paroxysmal nature. All the three doshas are involved in the pathogenesis of the Ardhavabhedaka with the predominance of Vata or Vatakapha. Episodic migraine (EM) is characterized by <15 headache days per month and chronic migraine (CM) is characterized by ?15 headache days per month.
