Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A groundbreaking, holistic, patientandndash;centered guide to the diagnosis, side effects and treatmentsandndash;andndash;both conventional and alternativeandndash;andndash;for headaches and Migraine disease, from an awardandndash;winning patient advocate and Migraine sufferer.

Everyone experiences a headache at one time or another. But for an estimated 2/3 of American men and women, frequent tension headaches, chronic daily headaches, or debilitating Migraines are a daily problem. Teri Robert, Ph.D., an award winning patient advocate and host of About.com's headache and migraine page, has been thereandndash;andndash;in fact, she experienced her first migraine at age six. Now in this groundbreaking holistic guide to the diagnosis and treatment of headaches and Migraine disease, she brings a patientandndash;empowering message to all headache sufferers: you don't have to live with daily pain.

Living Well With Migraine Disease And Headaches features a comprehensive overview of the risks and symptoms of Migraines and various types of chronic headaches, traditional and alternative therapies, information on finding health care practitioners and support, numerous case studies and expert advice, as well as a Migraine diary, a checklists of symptoms and risk factors, and a detailed resource section featuring web sites, books, and articles. While other books on headaches and Migraines advocate one approach to treatment, this invaluable guide gives you unbiased information on all treatmentsandndash;andndash;both conventional and alternative andndash; with a compassionate voice from one of the country's leading patient advocates.

Living Well With Migraine Disease And Headaches features firstandndash;person anecdotal experiences from other sufferers and integration of the author's experiences and challenges in dealing with headaches and Migraine disease over the past 40+ years.

Praise for Living Well with Migraine:

"An upbeat, practical and intelligent survey of our current understanding of migraine and frequent headaches, written from the perspective of someone who is not a doctor or scientist but is a migraine sufferer. Ms. Roberts brings a balanced perspective to a field that suffers from both hype and oversimplification. A wonderful resource: timely, provacative and funny."

andndash; Elizabeth Loder, MD, Director, Headache Management Program, Spaulding Rehabilitation Program; Assistant Professor of Medicine, Harvard Medical School.

Review:

"In this addition to the 'Living Well' series, patient advocate Robert provides current information on headaches and migraine disease, treatments, personal stories and coping techniques. The author, a longtime migraineur, stresses that although many migraine sufferers are unaware of treatment options, at least 95 percent of sufferers can benefit from preventive regimens once correctly diagnosed. Migraines, Robert explains, are not simply bad headaches, but a 'genetic neurological disease that flares up when we encounter triggers' and can take many forms-tension, cluster, or rebound, which is brought on by medication overuse-each of which require different treatments. Robert notes new medication developed to treat stroke, seizures and depression are now used for migraine disease, welcome news for sufferers who have for years ridden out migraine attacks with over-the-counter pain medication. She details 'trigger' identification and management by listing the many triggers of headaches and migraines, and reviews preventive, 'abortive' (which adjust neurotransmittal levels) and complementary therapies. With case studies and examples of patient advocacy, Robert also urges her readers to learn coping skills and to seek support from others, providing a clear overview of her subject with the authority of personal experience and a researcher's determination."
