In mid 80's a co-relation was made between Sleshma pitta & Migraine and an Ayurvedic Treatment Protocol (ATP) was developed. It comprises of Aahar (diet), Vihaar (lifestyle), Aushadh (Ayurvedic formulations - AFs). Such empirical success in the treatment of migraine were repeatedly seen between 1985 – 2002 in my clinical practice at Meerut. This led for the first prospective clinical study.

The results were presented in poster forms at 52nd Annual Scientific Meeting of the American Headache Society, Los Angeles, USA June 2010, 13th International Congress on Headache Stockholm, Sweden, June / July 2007 and at 16th International Symposium on Migraine, London, UK September 2006. The poster abstracts got published in medical journal Cephalalgia, 2006 volume 26, number 11, P 1367, Cephalalgia, 2007 volume 27, number 6, P 745 and Headache 2010 volume 50 (Supplement 1), P 53. A peer reviewed research article entitled, Response to Ayurvedic therapy in the treatment of migraine without aura, has also been published in International Journal of Ayurveda Research 2010, volume 1 issue 1, P 30-36. It is official Journal of Department of AYUSH, Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, Government of India.
