Clinical Assessment of the Impact of Shirodhara with water Treatment in the Management of Primary Headache with associated Anxiety and Depression

Jitendra Kumar, Girish Singh, Bertrand Martin, Ram Harsh Singh.

Abstract
Shirodhara (dripping of fluid on forehead) is a popular ayurvedic treatment for relieving the headache and stress. Shirodhara induces a peaceful state of awareness that results in a dynamic psycho-somatic balance. The present study was conducted on 40 cases of primary headache for 15 days duration with an objective of clinical efficacy evaluation of Shirodhara with water and Shirodhara with water and Ashwagandha ( Withania somnifera) extract orally in the management of headache along with associated anxiety and depression. The patients were randomly divided into two groups of 20 each. It was observed that the patients of group B treated with water shirodhara and Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) extract (500 mg once a day) have shown significant improvement, whereas the group A treated with only Shirodhara with water also showed similar improvement.

Key words: Shirodhara, Aswagandha, Anxiety, Stress, Depression, Primary headache
