Summary: 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 offers 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 eliminate 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, you can turn your headache problems around.

Heal Your Headache

I had heard good things about this book before I got it from the library. I thought it was about as good as every other headache book out there I’ve read. But I was wrong, in a good way. It is AMAZING and definitely worth 5 stars. I’m planning to buy my own copy to reread again and again till I’ve got the ideas really in my mind. I also want my daughter to read it as she suffers from chronic daily migraine.

Of course just reading the book won’t make your headaches better. You have to actually put it into practice. That is the hard part but I am going to try.

HYH (Heal Your Headache) explains things in a way other books don’t. Migraine is a process everyone has that can get triggered a lot, a little or not at all. It’s not a type of headache. *Mind Blown* (and not from a headache!)

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for everyone who suffers from headaches or knows someone who does. (So… everybody!)
