One of our family members has developed intractible headaches that arise at the most inopportune times. The headaches last for hours and recurr again and again over days.
A primary care physician suspected migraine and every available "normal" treatment for migraine was tried with no good result. A referral to a neurologist was made.
Following tests that showed an electrical abnormality in response to bright light (there goes the career involving microscopy) there were still headaches unaccounted for.
Enter The Headache Diet. For the next three months the entire family will be joining the sufferer in a diet free of sugar, caffeine, chocolate, processed foods, preserved foods, and anything and everything in the diet that is wonderful and indulgent. No Chinese food - NO HOT DOGS!
We will survive this and will count ourselves lucky if the headaches are gone and no longer interfere with sailing or hiking or life in general.
Wish us luck.
