An essential lifestyle guide to reducing headaches and other symptoms related to migraine, vertigo, and Meniere's disease. Its "slow-approach" plan and more than 75 trigger-free recipes set readers up for success--even when they're in pain.

In The Migraine Relief Plan, certified health and wellness coach Stephanie Weaver outlines a new, step-by-step lifestyle approach to reducing migraine frequency and severity.

Using the latest research, her own migraine diagnosis, and extensive testing, Weaver has designed an accessible plan to help those living with migraine, headaches, or Meniere's disease. Over the course of eight weeks, the plan gradually transitions readers into a healthier lifestyle, including key behaviors such as regular sleep, trigger-free eating, gentle exercise, and relaxation techniques. The book also collects resources--shopping lists, meal plans, symptom tracking charts, and kitchen-tested recipes for breakfast, lunch, snacks, and dinner--to provide readers with the tools they need to be successful.

The Migraine Relief Plan encourages readers to eat within the guidelines while still helping them follow personal dietary choices, like vegan or Paleo, and navigate challenges, such as parties, work, and travel. A must-have resource for anyone who lives with head pain, this book will inspire you to rethink your attitude toward health and wellness.

My Review

This is a difficult book to review because it is not a book book, but a cookbook with a lot of insight information and everyone will take and use something different to someone else. When I signed up to read this book, my migraines had got me to an all-time low, and I was desperately trying everything to stay away from medication. Did find acupuncture really helped me too, but so did this book!

I found this book really helpful and insightful with a lot of information I was not aware of! It is not just my diet to look at but my whole lifestyle with sleep and exercises, and something I had never thought of.

It has been fun trying out the new lifestyle change and waking up without a migraine some days. This book is not the ultimate cure but it is a really informative guide on how to adjust small things in your life for a bit of relief! This is great to have in the kitchen when looking at what I need to attempt a migraine-free meal!

Until next time xxx
