Based on the breakthrough understanding that virtually all headaches are forms of migraine--because migraine is not a specific type of headache, but the built-in mechanism that causes headaches of all kinds, along with neck stiffness, sinus congestion, dizziness, and other problems--Dr. Buchholz's "Heal Your Headache" puts headache sufferers back in control of their lives with a simple, transforming program: Step 1: Avoid the "Quick Fix." Too often painkillers only make matters worse because of the crippling complication known as rebound. Step 2: Reduce Your Triggers. The crux of the program: a migraine diet that eliminates the foods that push headache sufferers over the top. Step 3: Raise Your Threshold. When diet and other lifestyle changes aren't enough, preventive medication can help stay the course. That's it: in three steps turn your headache problems around.
I wish I had read this 8 months ago when I was first diagnosed with migraine. Would have shortened the journey by months and saved me a lot of doctors visits and the cost of trying several medications.
Worth a try if you are a sufferer....
As a migraine sufferer I bought this book feeling I had nothing to loose. I like the idea, the three simple steps and have since started the programme. unfortunately in places it is written like a promotion (just try the 1,2,3 method and you will find....) and had little scientific evidence (which is acknowledged) to back it up. There are also a few question marks against details...eg tomatoes....they suggest not eating as may be a trigger yet tomatoes are ingredients in suggested recipes. Anyway, there are lots of good bits, just take what you will....and be prepared to give up caffeine!
This book helped me control headaches
This book has helped me get control of my migrane headaches.
I was in a medication overuse cycle, it helped me break the cycle, explore triggers more thoroughly, and get my life back.
It may not work for everyone since migraine headaches have a myriad of causes, but now I know what foods and additatives to avoid.
