Migraine is a great deal more than just a bad headache. Symptoms may include visual disturbances, increased sensitivity to sounds or smells, diarrhoea, nausea and vomiting. It is a serious medical condition, which significantly affects millions of people. It has impact on an individual's personal and professional life, leading to lost work days, hindered job performance, restricted activities and disrupted relationships. However, migraine remains one of the most undertreated, misunderstood and misdiagnosed illnesses. While there is no known cure, understanding the triggers can help people take charge of and avoid attacks. For thos who find that certain foods are their trigger, this book should help by educating, identifying and eliminating those triggers. There are over 100 recipes, each of which has a coding system for the ten most common triggers: caffeine, chocolate, citrus fruits, red wine, aged cheese, MSG and nitrates, Aspartame, nuts, onions and garlic, and yeast and indicating whether the recipe contains those potentially troublesome ingredients. For migraine sufferers who want to learn more about their disorder this book contains medical information and resource material and a useful cookbook.
