Abstract

OBJECTIVES

Body constitution questionnaire was administered to both groups. The outcome measures included Symptom check list, Comprehensive Headache related Quality of Life Questionnaire and Visual Analogue Scale.

RESULTS

Forty-six (76.6%) out of 60 subjects belonging to both groups had Pitta based body constitution. Following 90 days of intervention the AY group showed significant reduction in Migraine symptoms including pain intensity (p < .001) and improvement in Headache related Quality of Life (p < .001). The CT group showed no significant change (p > .05).
