Publisher Comments:

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.

Synopsis:

A groundbreaking and controversial work, this book starts with the insight that all headaches are migraines. Johns Hopkins neurologist Buchholz takes headache sufferers out of the vicious cycle of misdiagnosis and rebound and puts them in charge of their lives with a simple, practical, patient-proven 3-step system.

I've read a lot of self-help books for migraine sufferers and this is the only one to have helped me. Like all those other self-help books this one is annoying in how the author pats himself on the back throughout, constantly reminding you how great he is for having written this book for you. If you can ignore that though, his plan is really great, he explains it really well and has a convincing argument for doing the extreme elimination diet. My doctors has always told me to keep a food diary and to try to watch for patterns to find my trigger foods, and that never worked. This author explains that you have to treat it like a scientific experiment, that is, eliminate all variables and then test each one at a time. Within a couple of weeks of cutting out all the foods on his list my chronic migraines had stopped. I've been on it for about 6 months now and I'm still testing foods, but I've also successfully found a few triggers. It's a slow process, and really annoying sometimes (like when you're at the grocery store and you have to stop yourself from buying your favorite snacks or someone gives you some chocolate as a gift) but this process has helped my migraines more than anything else. If your migraines are chronic and nothing else has helped you, then get this book and drum up some will power to try this diet.
