Migraine is one of the common causes of recurrent headache. According to IHS, Migraine constitutes 16% of the primary headache and affects 10-20% of the general population. The diagnosis is mainly based on clinical history. Moreover, unilateral headache with paroxysmal nature is the only symptom mentioned for the disease Ardhavabhedaka by ancient scientists. Ardhavabhedaka has been explained as Tridoshaja by Acharya Sushruta, Vata-Kaphaja by Charaka and Vataja by Vagbhatta. But the different quality of pain such as Toda, Bheda, etc. describes the Vishama nature of Vata dosha. A study in 2002 that analyzed over 800,000 cases of migraine reported that most migraines are not treated according to any expert recommendations or accepted evidence. Our Acharyas have mentioned Nasya Therapy as the master key for all urdhavajatrugata vikaras. Considering all such things the present study was selected, in which total 44 patients were registered and were randomly divided into two groups. In group A, Laghu Sutashekhara Rasa & group B, Brihat Dashamoola Taila Nasya along with Laghu Sutashekhara Rasa was given for 6 weeks. In group A & in group B, maximum number of patients i.e., 35% & 52.94% respectively showed marked improvement.
