Overview

Most people's diets are woefully inadequate for providing proper nutrition. Even good diets fail to deliver sufficient levels of nutrients. Research proves the immense value of vitamins for maintaining health and fighting disease. The Vitamin Cure book series, written by authors who are recognized experts in their field, offers authoritative, up-to-date, and practical information on taking vitamins for specific health problems.

Migraine headaches are one of the most incapacitating diseases in terms of useful days lost. Worldwide, more than 300 million people are afflicted by migraines. Unfortunately, it is a chronic disease that is particularly difficult for conventional medicine to investigate or treat effectively.

Nutrition should be the first line of defense for a migraine sufferer. This book describes nutritional approaches to both prevention and treatment, based on orthomolecular (megavitamin) medicine. Additional noninvasive therapies that may be helpful include herbal medicine, acupuncture, and oxygen therapy. As a last resort, selected drugs can be used for aborting migraines-these are covered as well. With this safe and effective nutritional program, migraine sufferers' lives can be greatly improved.
