According to "Handycap.de" about ten percent of the population suffers from migraine. In Germany, it is assumed that up to nine million people suffer from migraine, in Switzerland up to one million. Statistically speaking, women are affected about three times as often as men.
From an ayurvedic point of view, migraine is caused by malnutrition. Dry, cold and acidic food, excessive physical effort, high stress factors, trauma, tension, deep-seated aggression and other emotions can be the cause.
