If you suffer from migraines, you know from experience that prescription medication can only do so much to help relieve your suffering. You also know that your next headache could still strike at any time, and as a result, you may lead a life of fear and trepidation, never knowing when the responsibilities of work and family will once again fall victim to your throbbing skull. 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. The book also explores the link between inflammation, diet, and migraines, and contains a 21-day meal plan to help readers change the way they eat. 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.
“I love, love, love this book. I personally suffer from an auto-immune disease, and this fun, easy read left me not only informed, but confident that I can live a longer life. As a chef, I found the diet and the recipes very achievable. Turknett really relates to everyday people in this truly informative and exceedingly helpful book. Life-changing.”
―Tracey Bloom, chef, lifestyle consultant, Top Chef contestant, and co-owner of www.freecuisine.com
“Bold, eye opening, and compelling, The Migraine Miracle promises to forever alter the landscape of migraine treatment for the better. Essential reading for anyone who suffers from migraines, and essential reading for anyone who cares for migraine patients.”
―Timothy Lo, MD, MPH, neurologist and pain management specialist
“Ancestral diets and lifestyle practices have proven highly effective at curing migraines. Indeed, they are a general recipe for superb health and longevity. Josh Turknett has helped himself and many patients with these techniques, and now brings us the best available guide for overcoming migraines. If you have migraines, please read this book!”
―Paul Jaminet, PhD, author of Perfect Health Diet and editor of Journal of Evolution and Health

One year later - ￼my migraines have all but vanished.
I owe everthing to Dr. Josh Turknett and his program for migrainers. Dr. Josh is a fellow migrainer and neurologist who created the Miracle Migraine Program that is specifically for migrainers. The program is based on living an ancestral lifestyle, changing dietary patterns, and stopping the use of migraine-inducing medications.
￼ Dr. Josh has a website, book, online course, and podcast that all outline his program. In my opinion - the best was to get started is to start listening to his podcast, “The Migraine Miracle Moment.” ￼
￼I promise, this program will change your life. ￼ ￼
In addition to reclaiming my life from migraines, I lost 40 pounds, ￼I’m medication-free, and I’ve truly never felt better. ￼Read this book - it will change your life!

I read this book on holiday and started to make changes, and since then (6 weeks ago) have been getting better and better, now looking at other Keto (Ketosis) eating plan books alongside this one. I've not taken my prescription meds now for 6 weeks - yes, I've had headaches but only that and paracetamol have cleared them (something that I would have never used to take as it wouldn't touch me). What a dramatic change! I cannot explain what this has done for my life.
It's not easy to have no gluten, no carbs and no sugar - but if it gives you quality of life and less/no drugs then surely it's worth it?
2/3rds of the book goes in to the science behind migraines and the eating plan. If you don't adopt the eating regime then for migraine sufferers and their families/friends, this section of the book is a must. It is logical and methodical and well explained. It's written by Josh Turnkett who not only is a neurologist (US), but also suffers with migraines, and his wife and child and mother did too - so he really 'gets' what migraineurs go through.
My only negative, and this is why despite it's life-changing effect, is that the recipe section is too brief, doesn't give a list of acceptable foods and those that aren't (it's written in paragraphs but no easy reference list), and also the recipes are all American. They work in cup sizes and have ingredients that either we don't have access to or that's called something else and you spend time googling everything (like Cilantro...? It's Coriander I found out).
If you suffer with migraines, you'd do anything to stop them. This diet plan requires dedication and commitment, but after 6 weeks I'm getting the hang of it and it's well worth it. I'm not craving sweet things, in fact I have no desire at all for them - something I NEVER thought would have happened. So, what have you got to lose...?
In January I had the worst month I can remember, 13 attacks in the month, there was no end to it and I was more desperate than I've ever been.
Don't recall how I came across this book, but I thought I'd give it a go. I completely stopped all wheat, alcohol and chocolate, and reduced sugar and carbs. One month later, I have had 3 attacks and for the first time ever I took an ibuprofen because I could feel one starting and it actually stopped it, this has never happened before.
I know I'm only one month in, but the initial signs are good, oh and I've lost 1/2 stone aswell, which is a bonus
Other advice includes giving up drugs so you don't get rebound headaches. I wish I had a pound for every book I've read that in!
The big thing seems to be giving up carbs, gluten in particular. There's recipe ideas in the book but frankly they don't sound like the sort of stuff that we'd like to eat and there are much better gluten free and carb free ideas out there if you just google. The author runs a facebook page promoting online courses too and even has t-shirts with "Slay the beast" on. Between that and the balloon analogy - well, perhaps it's all just a bit too American for me!
As I said, I haven't followed the advice in this book, but before I bought it I was already trying to eat less carbs and take less drugs and my migraines have improved as a result.
