Alternative Therapy: Yoga, as An Effectively Complementary Practice in Alleviated Symptoms of Migraine

By Kyle J. Norton 

Yoga intervention may be helpful in reduced symptoms of migraine, particularly in women, epidemiological studies suggested

Migraine headache is one most common headache defined as a condition of chronic neurological disorder of moderate to severe headaches, and nausea, usually developed gradually over 5–20 minutes and last for less than 60 minutes.

Yoga, the ancient technique practice for harmonized external and internal body well beings, through breath control, meditation, bodily movement and gesture..... has been best known for people in Western world and some parts in Asia due to health benefits reported by various respectable institutes' research and supported by health advocates.

According to the study of migraine patients randomly given either conventional care (n = 30) or Yoga with conventional care (n = 30) and yoga practice session for 5 days a week for 6 weeks along with conventional care.
* Yoga group expressed a strong improvement in clinical variables in compared to control
* In yoga alone group, the improvement was found profoundly more effective in compared to both yoga + conventional care and conventional care groups.

Dr. the led authors said, "Headache frequency and intensity were reduced more in Yoga with conventional care than the conventional care group alone. Furthermore, Yoga therapy enhanced the vagal tone and decreased the sympathetic drive, hence improving the cardiac autonomic balance".

Truly, yoga slow breathing and meditation ameliorated stress cause of central nervous system in stimulated production of stress hormones in induction of hormone imbalance that trigger sensitive primary nerve in carried pain impulses from your mouth, teeth, head, face, ears, and neck and reduced production of nitric oxide synthases (iNOS) in facilitated muscle constriction in increased migraine pain, through decreased levels of nitric oxide (NO), a free radical in the regulation of cerebral and extra cerebral cranial blood flow.

The results suggested that yoga participated may also reduce risk of migraine caused by hormone interference medication such as hormonal contraceptives and hormone replacement treatment.

Furthermore, by calming the central nervous system yoga practice also reduced expression of stress hormones in orchestrated production prostaglandin hormone PE2 and decreased serotonin hormone, a type of neurotransmitter, in initiated muscle constriction and provoked migraine-like attacks.

Moreover, yoga mindfulness also reconnected and re balanced the mind and the body, by bring back the presence, while letting them go such as stress or dealing them in a profound and positive ways, thus reducing the implication of psychological syndrome, such as depression and anxiety in precipitated hormone imbalance and insulin fluctuation in facilitated  migraine, during menstrual cycle and menopausal women.

The above differentiation were supported by the randomized controlled trial of patients with migraine without aura assigned to yoga therapy or self-care group for 3 months, conducted by the University of Rajasthan.

According to study, yoga intervention group expressed less complaints related to headache intensity, frequency, pain rating index, affective pain rating index, total pain rating index, anxiety and depression scores and less used of symptomatic medication in compared to the self-care group, after adjusting to the baseline.

Importantly, the study demonstrated a significant reduction of symptoms of migraine headache in all aspects and frequency and associated clinical features. Dr. John PJ, the led author opinionated.

And, the study of  a total of 42 women patients with migraine enrolled and randomized into either a yoga exercise group placed in yoga training program in addition to the same medical treatment or a control group received only medication for 12 weeks, lead by the Isfahan University of Medical Sciences.

The final results suggested that yoga intervention exerted a significant effect on endothelial function of migraineurs, through decreased plasma level of vascular cell adhesion molecule (VCAM), but expressed no significant difference in plasma levels of intercellular adhesion molecule (ICAM), in compared to control group.

Levels of vascular cell adhesion molecule (VCAM) and intercellular adhesion molecule (ICAM) were elevated in patients with migraine headache.

Taking together, there is no doubt that yoga may be considered as a complementary treatment of  symptoms of migraine.
