Migraine is a debilitating neurological disorder, manifesting as intense, throbbing headaches often accompanied by nausea, and sensitivity to light and sound. Individualization is the key to understanding the different types of migraine and how they manifest.
Migraines are characterized by severe, pulsating headaches that can last for hours to days. The pain is often unilateral, affecting one side of the head, and is aggravated by physical activity. Nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to light and sound are common accompanying symptoms. Let us delve into the homeopathic therapeutics for migraines.
- Sudden, intense, throbbing pain; flushed face; delirium; sensitivity to light and noise.

- Iris Versicolor is indicated for migraines with distinctive visual disturbances before the onset of pain. It is also effective when accompanied by digestive issues such as nausea and vomiting.
