Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Although headaches are natural, they are not necessary, argues David Buchholz, a professor at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. In his Heal Your Headache: The 1-2-3 Program for Taking Charge of Your Headaches, Buchholz counsels severe headache sufferers to avoid quick fix painkillers, which can cause rebound headaches. For a more holistic approach, minimize triggers like caffeine, perfumes, certain foods and stress and, for hardcore cases, use preventative medications such as tricyclic antidepressants, calcium channel blockers and others. Buchholz also discusses common misdiagnoses of migraine symptoms and challenges the myth of tension and sinus headaches (these are usually migraines, he argues).

Before reading " Heal your headache" I had been suffering with migranes, on average two per day, for almost three years. General practitioners, neurologists, acupuncturists, bioenergetic doctors, and more gave me all sorts of wrong directions to explore. The suggestions that didn't make me worse simply didn't work. Then I came upon " Heal your headache". This book addressed every single simptom that I had been suffering with for the last three years. This book answered every question that I had been asking my doctors; and had never properly been explained. All my apparently mysterious medical problems were explained in this book. All the explanations are clearly written so that even I could understand them perfectly. This book not only explained clearly why I was having migranes, nausea, vertigo, and feeling overall tired, but it gave me all the information necessary to deal with these maladies. Furthermore it outlined all the stumbling blocks I would encounter on the way to healing myself and how to best prepare myself to overcome them. In other words it gave me all the answers to both questions I had been asking and questions I didnt even know I would soon be asking. After finishing this book I felt ready to follow the three-step program, and I promise you it works!

It would have been an excellent book if it was not for three truly major mistakes that will lead many people astray. 1. There is no scientific evidence but only anecdotal reports that triptans, such as imitrex cause rebound headaches and limiting patients to only two days of treatment with triptans per month is a crime! 2. Botox has completely relieved migraines in thousands of patients. There is not a single major headache center that does not offer this treatment. 3. Magnesium and feverfew have been proven to prevent migraines in multiple double-blind trials published in major medical journals, which cannot be said for many of the drug recommendations in the book.

if you still believe in miracles, Santa Claus, the basic goodness of people, and physicians who can be "user friendly", you have to buy this book!
it's written as if the author were a member of your own family, he speaks to OUR level, not more and for once, not less. He anticipates your very next question or response, almost to the point of having a "sixth sense". The book can change your life, but only if you're willing to make the effort to take the first step. He can chase the monsters away, and renew your belief in miracles, Santa, pain-free days and the hope of a brand new tomorrow. Your life can be changed and saved for yourself, and your loved ones. I cannot express it more highly than that.

I first read this book and saw Dr. Buchholz six months ago. For the second time in three years, my migraines and associated symptoms of dizziness and nausea had become so bad that I hadn't been to work in weeks. I had tried everything, but seemed to suffer regular migraines no matter what I did. For years I had carried a pill fob of painkillers and abortive drugs with me everywhere I went, and felt entirely dependent on the meds (I didn't abuse them, but on a few occasions when I had needed them and didn't have them with me I had ended up in the emergency room getting shots of Toradol).
You've heard this all before I am sure... it is six months into the diet and discontinuation of all drugs except a daily preventative, and I have had only 3 or 4 headaches in that time. I know longer carry those medications at all.
This is not a fad diet for a quick fix, but an incredibly empowering approach for the long term that requires you to make tough changes. You have to forego abortive medications and make some pretty tough dietary changes. But it works 100x more than any other approach that I have tried -- it truly makes a difference.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone who suffers with migraine headaches occasionally or constantly and to anyone who has a loved one that suffers with migraine headaches.
I had headache discomfort ranging from irritating to excruciating everyday for four months. I saw my primary care doctor; his partner, several ER doctors and two neurologists and none of them could help very much in my constant struggle. After spending 3 ½ months on constant narcotics (the wrong thing to do) and 3 days in the hospital with little relief, I decided to take matters into my own hands.
A friend of mine researched doctors specializing in migraine headaches and found Dr. Buchholz. Of course it is a six-month waiting list to get into his office and I decided to read his book in the meantime. I will admit, I read it with much skepticism. I figured I would follow his guidelines and then when I had my appointment I would say, "I followed this advice and it did not work. Now What?" Instead, I found that his 3-step program was just what I needed. 7 months later, I have very few headaches and they go away with simple Tylenol.
I strongly recommend that the migraine sufferer and those close to them read this book and stick to its advice.

I have suffered from migraines most of my life. Over the past six years they have become much more frequent and severe. I have tried every natural remedy and prevention I could find. Finally I saw a neurologist who prescribed one of the new migraine medications. I began taking them 2x week. My headaches became more frequent over a four year period as many as 3-5 times a week. Then I found Dr. David Buchholz's book, "Heal Your Headache, The 1-2-3 Program." I stopped taking the prescription drugs, began a headache diet he outlines. I have my life back !! I can not tell you what a remarkable difference this program has made in my life !!
