Synopses & Reviews
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.
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.
