A Two-Arm Parallel Double-Blind Randomised Controlled Trial of the Efficacy of Dashmoola Taila Nasya & Marma Chikitsa in Ardhavbhedaka (Migraine)
Shirah is considered as Uttamanga i.e., supreme, important, and major part of the body. Thus, it is necessary to maintain the health of Shirah. Almost all our ancient Acharyas have mentioned the Shirorogas of which Sirah-Shoola (headache) is the leading symptom. Ardhavbhedaka is one of the Shiro-Roga which can be correlated with migraine. It indicates the pain or headache in half of the head i.e. in the right or left half of the head. Several Aushadha have been enumerated by the Acharyas for the management of Ardhavbhedaka. Doshika predominance in Ardhavbhedaka disease, Dashmoola taila was selected as Nasya Yoga. This Yoga pacifies Tri-doshas, and helps to counteract the symptoms of Ardhavbhedaka. A lot of research work has been conducted to evaluate the effect of Nasya Karma on migraine. But this research conducted on the treatment of migraine with Dashmoola taila Nasya and Marma Chikitsa, as adjuvant therapy. Hence, intending to identify and establish, an alternative, safer, effective and long-lasting treatment modality, the study entitled “Evaluation of Dashmoola Taila Nasya and Marma Chikitsa in Ardhavbhedaka (migraine)” was conducted in 40 patients. They were selected based on standard inclusion and exclusion criteria and randomly allocated to two different treatment groups; Group- A (Dashmoola Taila Nasya with Marma Chikitsa) and Group- B (Dashmoola Taila Nasya).
