Based on the totality of symptoms (constitution of the individual both physical and mental status) and present symptomatology, we prescribe a similimum remedy which helps to remove the root cause of the disease, maintaining the better quality of the individual. In case of migraine, homoeopathy helps to reduce severity of pain and prevents the recurrence of attack by reducing the symptoms intensity from severe to bearable stage.
