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.

One book. Thousands of years of wisdom. Finally, a solution to your suffering. When most people hear the word "disease," they think of something deadly, uncontrollable and swift -- like cancer. But we're facing an epidemic of "dis-ease" -- of Americans simply feeling unwell and unable to embrace the lives they want to lead. They're tired, overweight, and inflamed. They're dealing with ongoing digestive issues like constipation or diarrhea (or both), and they aren't sleeping well. And many are suffering from regular and sometimes debilitating headaches. "I just don't feel healthy," you might say. You look in the mirror and think, "What happened to the strong, vibrant person I was in my teens, 20s, 30s? Where has she gone and how do I get her back?" Getting back to a healthy you requires understanding your natural state. Only when you know what a balanced self looks like can you identify the symptoms of imbalance and make appropriate changes to reverse the trajectory of poor health. In ancient Ayurvedic medicine, these natural states are called Doshas: Vata, Pitta and Kapha. Your Dosha is the key to your health. This book will help you identify it and make meaningful changes for a strong, pain-free, healthy life. The Mysterious Mind is a groundbreaking and surprisingly simple answer to a complex medical problem. It combines ancient wisdom with modern medicine to help you heal your pain and discomfort, and reclaim your life. Based on the career insights of board-certified neurologist Dr. Trupti Gokani, this book tackles the questions you have assumed might go unanswered forever. * Why do I get HEADACHES and how can I prevent them? Why do some of my attacks have nausea, light sensitivity and are located in my temples, yet other involve my neck and back of my head and include sound sensitivity? * Is it normal to be CONSTIPATED all the time? Is there a link between the gut and the brain? * Isn't there something I can do to cure my ACHING JOINTS? What causes body pain? How is it linked to the digestive system? * Why can't I seem to get my MOODS in balance? Why does my mind always feel anxious and restless? * What would it take for me to not feel so STRESSED OUT all the time? Is there such a thing as adrenal fatigue? Do I have it? * Isn't there something I can do about my INSOMNIA? How is this linked to impaired liver detoxification and imbalanced adrenals? * Are there certain foods I can eat or ways I can prepare my foods to help BALANCE my mind and body? What about herbals and nutrients that can bring me into balance?

Your migraine isn't just a headache. But it's an illness that you can control and manage. Migraine is actually a neurological disease. It affects one in five women and one in twenty men, and can be a debilitating and chronic condition with a range of physical and emotional symptoms (not just excruciating head pain). It is caused by chemical and structural differences in the brains and central nervous systems of sufferers. "Bernstein approaches the reader as she might patients -- creatively, scientifically, and sympathetically -- offering a range of tactics and treatments to help migraine sufferers control and mitigate their pain." 'Publishers Weekly' The Migraine Brain is the comprehensive, most up-to-date book on migraines and it offers any sufferer the opportunity to get better: ? Reduce the frequency and intensity of migraines ? Learn how to prevent and curtail them ? Discover how to recover from them quickly. Every migraine is different because every sufferer has a unique Migraine Brain, with its own sensitivities and triggers. Dr Bernstein identifies what can trigger an attack, helping readers to develop a personalised plan to control or prevent their pain. Including research into the newest drug treatments, as well a range of tactics and treatments (from lifestyle change such as yoga, exercise and better sleep to diet) The Migraine Brain provides sufferers with everything they need to change their lives forever. Packed with the latest medical research and an up to date resource section, as well as lively anecdotes from sufferers, quizzes and questionnaires to help identify a personal approach to managing migraines, The Migraine Brain offers a comprehensive treatment programme. Dr Carolyn Bernstein is an assistant professor of neurology at Harvard Medical School and has founded her own clinic, the Women's Headache Center. Elaine McArdle is an award-winning journalist who has suffered from migraines for twenty years.

If you suffer from migraines, you know from experience that prescription medication can only do so much to help relieve your suffering.

Unfortunately, despite the many advances in medicine, there is still no real cure for the migraine headache. In The Migraine Miracle, a neurologist with a personal history of migraines offers readers the revolutionary dietary cure that has worked for him and continues to work for his patients: a diet low in wheat, sugar, and processed foods, and high in organic, protein-rich animal products.

By following this easy meal plan, millions of sufferers will discover a life free from symptoms—once and for all. The book includes comprehensive, research-based information that explains what the brain goes through during a migraine headache, the phases of the migraine, and how a diagnosis is made. It also explores the risks and benefits of migraine medication, natural remedies for migraines, dietary migraine triggers, and detailed, specific instructions for a migraine-free eating plan. If you have tried migraine medicine but have not found real relief, it’s time to try something new. By changing the way you eat, and understanding what foods can trigger your migraine, you can start feeling better longer, without the threat of a migraine always looming over everything you do.

Health & SICKNESS -- Consumer Health . In the United States, eighteen percent of women, six percent of men, and four percent of children suffer from migraine headaches. All races are affected, although, for reasons which are unknown, whites are more likely than African Americans to be afflicted with the condition, and Asian Americans are least often migraine sufferers. Migraine is an inherited condition-many families can trace it back for generations-and it has enormous economic and social consequences, both to individual sufferers, and to the society as a whole. The cost to the U.S. society alone is in excess of $13 billion per year in lost productivity and in health care. Understanding Migraine and Other Headaches provides up-to-date information on the causes and diagnoses, as well as current preventive measures, effective treatments, and surgical procedures. The book gives an overview of every major type of headache, including the debilitating, nausea-inducing forms of migraine, episodic tension-type headaches (the most common form), chronic daily headaches, and more obscure head-aches such as trigeminal neuralgia and cluster headaches. This book is intended for those who are burdened by headaches as well as for their families, coworkers, employers, and friends. As such, it is written in a lucid and simple style that is accessible both to lay readers and medical professionals. In the last two decades, revolutionary new migraine-specific medications have been developed. This book undertakes a comprehensive look at medications for acute as needed treatment of headaches and for preventing the onset of an attack. It offers guidelines for assessing headache pain, the level and type of medication needed, possible side effects, and drug effectiveness. Stewart J. Tepper is director of the New England Center for Headaches in Stamford, Connecticut.

Two headache specialists offer their innovative Headache Reduction Program, for treating and preventing recurring headaches Twenty-eight million people in the United States suffer from chronic, recurrent, often disabling headaches-half of them forgoing medical attention in favor of analgesics that do nothing to prevent the next one.
