Why does Migraine happen?

Ayurveda says that bad food and lifestyle habits produce high heat and extra acids in the body.   This excess acid and heat goes up in the head through the blood and settles there.  Any little trigger like wrong food or exposure to sunlight or any environmental factors can trigger this acidic heat and create inflammation and blockages in the brain nerves and cells.  Finally, you experience heaviness, "pins and needles sensation," and intense throbbing pain on half side or all over the head.  It is called Migraine.
