combat migraine pain

A migraine is an ailment that afflicts approximately ten percent of the population across the board and has always been a formidable one. Not surprisingly, given today’s modern living conditions, the number is on the rise.

Whenever a migraine is experienced, a definite pattern is seen. The pain, which is very severe, occurs on only one side of the head and more often than not, radiates from the eye. During the attack, it could be any side of the head that could be affected and in the subsequent ones, it could be the other side. Invariably, these attacks of a migraine lead to episodes of irritability, depression, and even appetite loss. The major symptoms of an impending bout of a migraine are nausea, pounding pain,  and in some cases vomiting.

The after effect of a migraine is very tiring and the afflicted often feels like being alone, resting in bed and that too devoid of light and noise as far as possible because these lead to avoidable irritations. One should be conscious of the fact that when this headache occurs, a feeling of tingling, numbness, or weakness in the arm or leg is experienced.

Some common causes of a migraine area brought out –

  •  A major cause is when one consumes food to which he is allergic to. These foods could include cheese, dairy products, chocolates, tea, coffee, and many more.
  • Some people are affected by an overdose of bright lights. Other psychological aspects like fright, anger, depression are also known to be the causes of a migraine.
  • In women, before the commencement of the menstrual period, the level of female hormones i.e. estrogen and progesterone fall. This sudden drop in the hormone levels causes a migraine.

  1. I am not someone who experiences migraine headaches very often but when I do experience them once in a few months they are quite nasty. Can regular curcumin supplementation help me get rid of this problem once and for all?

    1. Most people rely on OTC pain medication to get relief from a migraine induced headache. These drugs are not very good if taken frequently because they produce side effects that weaken the digestive tract. Curcumin is a natural anti-inflammatory and analgesic that can help you avoid migraines as well as reduce their intensity when they occur. By acting on the pro-inflammatory enzymes and reducing their effectiveness, curcumin tones down the level of pain experienced as part of a migraine attack. It also has antioxidant properties which help in neutralizing excessive free radicals and reducing the level of oxidative stress. When the oxidative stress in the body is low, chances of getting a migraine headache are also low.

Clinical Trial & Our Product

Since health care & medicine is an industry, formulations are controlled through intellectual property rights denying easy access to common people and maintaining the buoyancy for the interest holders. Formula’s can be patented and that covers business interests that drive innovations these days.

So instead of conducting trials on the raw root, almost all companies promote clinically tested formulations of extracts to make it appear better then how the phytochemical was in its original state. Its like extracting an important organ from the body and then putting it on support system, expecting it to perform better in insolation then how it could perform when in it was in its natural form. The truth is, that the best way to consume a plant based medicine is in its raw form. Curcumin is one of the active ingredients in the root Curcuma Longa.

Since its more important to know what your food ate then what you ate, its important to know that the supplements you are using based on curcumin has curcumin from a gene modified variety of curcuma longa which suffers from an imbalance of every other mineral. You see a plant also behaves how a human body behaves when it is injected with steroids to gain muscle mass for body building purpose. The plants have higher levels of curcumin but all other secondary minerals found along curcumin in the plant get compromised as the plant can not feed all nutritions equally when it is designed to feed most of its nutrition towards developing higher levels of curcumin. It has severe side effects on the health of the plant and apparently on the people consuming such plants or extracts coming from these plants. However marketing and promotions have evolved to divert attention very wisely.

An extract of any herb can never be stored in its original state and hence needs base agents, preservatives which hardly leave it how it must be. We believe that access to medicine and healthcare is a basic right of every human and animal living on planet earth. Hence we do not first extract and then add preservatives or agents like pepperine to make the extract bio-available. This is the reason we never patent any of our products. We instead hand process the whole root we cultivate in our farms and share it with the people under different brand names for different health conditions based on the concentration of minerals present at testing. You can also buy the seed from us and cultivate it but it will certainly not be as potent as you get from us.

How potent is the active ingredient in the plant depends on the quality of seed, soil, water and environment. Our products work far better then most of the curcumin based supplements globally being used for Therapeutic benefits.

We do not intend to formulate or patent our products. So instead of choosing a supplement with an extract, choose wisely and go for the best and not the Cheapest.

All our products are cultivated, harvested, hand processed and distributed directly from our own farms to ensure that people who depend on our products for their acute and chronic problems get consistent supply of highest quality, ultra premium, medicinal grade, Non-GMO, Indigenous, Naturally enriched with curcumin, Wild Strand curcuma longa powder for therapeutic benefits. We cultivate this in the middle of a national park which happens to be the best breeding ground for Bengal tigers in India called Bandhavgarh.
