I had been suffering from migraine for more than 20 years (since college days in India). It used to start from one side of head progressing to whole head, neck, shoulder and would continue for days. It became progressively severe over the years after I moved to the US in 2000. Since the last few years, I have been so down that I had to quit my job and did not have any life anymore. I was treated with whole gamut of antiepileptics, antidepressants, triptans and pain medications. I was on several preventive medications like Depakote, Nortriptyline, Betaxolol along with Triptans, Ketorolac injection and Naproxen for migraine attacks. Hence, I suffered from severe side effects of medications like weakness, tremors, liver toxicity, cognitive dysfunction and depression to the point that I even had thoughts of committing suicide. I had been in and out of emergency several times. It so happened that during my visit to INDIA in 2015, I found out about Vaidya Balendu Prakash and his Ayurvedic treatment from a very close friend’s cousin who had undergone migraine treatment at Padaav. Vaidyaji and Shikhaji were quite gracious to admit me for the treatment immediately. I went to Dehradun with lot of skepticism as I had tried several treatments like yoga, acupuncture, ayurveda, homeopathy and biofeedback without any effect. At Padaav, I was taken off all allopathic medications and Ayurvedic medicines were started with diet restriction. I had a very bad withdrawal syndrome and suffered from severe headache for almost two weeks due to prior allopathic medicines. Everyone at Padaav was very kind and Vaidyaji was always available to treat my headache in spite of his busy schedule. He explained his research about the link between acidity, gall bladder inflammation and migraine and instilled in me the importance of diet in arresting headaches. As the severity of headaches reduced, I slowly gained confidence in managing the pain with diet. I continued Vaidyaji’s Ayurvedic medicine for the next 7 months at US along with diet restriction as instructed by him. It’s been one year and I had only one migraine episode due to a change in diet. I have learnt to avoid all acidic, fried, processed, junk foods and drink 6 to 8 glasses of hot water daily. After 20 years, for the first time, I am able to enjoy medicine free, headache free and gastritis free life. I am able to engage in activities like singing, attending concerts, travelling, painting etc., which I could not even think of doing earlier. It is a miracle that after all these years of suffering and visiting India several times, I finally found out about Vaidyaji and his migraine treatment. As a researcher and pharmacist in the US, I admire Vaidyaji’s applied research and treatment of migraine and other chronic diseases and wish him lots of success in all his endeavours. I hope my story will be an eye opener to anyone suffering from this debilitating migraine headache.
