I had my first migraine headache at age 14 and intent on preventing another I began my study of natural wellness. I read in a library book that in addition to stress and insufficient rest certain food ingredients trigger migraine and began to attempt to eliminate those with some success. In 1999 I began to create raw-vegan versions of all of my favorite foods and in 2010 low-fat high-carb raw-vegan.
The 80/10/10 Diet: Balancing Your Health, Your Weight, and Your Life One Luscious Bite at a Time If you have struggled with maintaining your natural weight and wellness or would like to change your life for the better, look no further than this groundbreaking book. In his book, The 80/10/10 Diet, author Dr. Douglas Graham gives “voice to what has proven to be the healthiest choice in the world of food and nutrition” and says, “I believe it is time that we all started loving ourselves a lot more … by nourishing our bodies with foods that love us back.” He addresses cancer, diabetes, heart-disease, obesity, adrenal fatigue, candida, and more with a simple high-carb low-fat raw-vegan macro-nutrient formula of 80% minimum carbohydrates, 10% maximum protein, and 10% maximum fat.
Water: For Health, for Healing, for Life: You’re Not Sick, You’re Thirsty! The author, Dr. F. Batmanghelidj, not only believes that drinking water is healthy, but claims it has curative powers. According to Batmanghelidj, most people are seriously dehydrated. He says that symptoms like fatigue, anxiety, or depression indicate dehydration, which may result in serious conditions such as asthma, heart disease, brain damage, cancer, constipation, allergies, obesity, and diabetes. In order to compensate for fluid lost through urination, respiration, and perspiration, Batmanghelidj suggests drinking a minimum of two quarts of plain water daily (not alcohol, caffeine beverages or juices). In addition, a diet consisting of a minimum of 80% fruits and vegetables should be followed along with an exercise program. The author presents a wealth of medical data as well as patient anecdotes that testify to water as a cure for various diseases.
Heal Your Headache: The 1-2-3 Program for Taking Charge of Your Pain by David Buchholz. Based on the breakthrough understanding that virtually all headaches are forms of migraine–because migraine is not a specific type of headache, but the built-in mechanism that causes headaches of all kinds, along with neck stiffness, sinus congestion, dizziness, and other problems–Dr. Buchholz’s Heal Your Headache puts headache sufferers back in control of their lives with a simple, transforming program: Step 1: Avoid the “Quick Fix.” Too often painkillers only make matters worse because of the crippling complication known as rebound. Step 2: Reduce Your Triggers. The crux of the program: a migraine diet that eliminates the foods that push headache sufferers over the top. Step 3: Raise Your Threshold. When diet and other lifestyle changes aren’t enough, preventive medication can help stay the course. That’s it: in three steps turn your headache problems around.
This is not the library book I read in 1972 and honestly I do not remember the name of it, but I put this one up as an example.
