Dear going by ayurvedic way I believe there is blockade of micro channels leadiing to all these diseases. In detaled history of case we need to go the root cause if there is any common feature responsible for all these ailments. If we get some then treating one might cure all. Going from the type of diseases you have mentioned i presume there to be imbalance of vaat and pit. Any how Yes all these ailments are treatable by herbal medicines.

welcome to healthcaremagic
Migraine is known as "Ardhavabhedak" in Ayurveda. Yes there is good ayurvedic treatment of migrain. we had to find out precipitating factor before doing treatment. According to Ayurveda treatment of migraine consists of the following procedures:
(i) "Swedan" (fomentation)
(ii) "Nasya" (nasal drops)
(iii) "Basti" (enema)
(iv) "Shirobasti" (scalp treatment milk or oil)
(v) "Dahan" (local heat ) and
(vi) "Shaman" ( symptomatic oral treatment)
which are only permanent cure of migrain from the root. you had to visit your nearest Ayurveda doctor for consultation.
take care
