Cluster Headache.


Headaches that occur in patterns or clusters.Bouts of frequent attacks, known as cluster periods, can last from weeks to months, usually followed by remission periods when the headaches stop. During remission, no headaches occur for months and sometimes even years.According to Ayurveda , three metabolic elements are present in our body. These are called Vata, Pitta and Kapha which can affect the body functions which need to be in balance. Cluster headaches mainly occur due to the imbalance of vata and pitta.
