The Migraine Relief Plan: An 8-Week Transition to Better Eating, Fewer Headaches, and Optimal Health.

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 thoughts..

When I opened this book I felt like I had finally found someone who spoke my language. Having lived with the distressing symptoms of both vertigo and migraine, I realised long ago the importance of modifying my diet in order to avoid the triggers which exacerbated both conditions. 

This 8-week transition to better eating, fewer headaches and optimal health puts the whole thing into perspective and for people who live with these conditions finding something that really helps is half the battle of coping with so many different symptoms.

The Migraine Relief Plan is completely user-friendly, which helped enormously as there's nothing worse that starting a health plan only to be bamboozled by too much waffle and too much complicated science. The individual chapters are both informative and really useful and the author's own interpretation and the ways she puts forward her ideas and the reasons behind these ideas and suggestions was, for me, quite enlightening.

There's an informative diet plan, and interesting food suggestions to follow with lots of delicious trigger free recipes which help to navigate the complicated process of what you put into your body as fuel, but what struck a chord with me was the section about taking care of what you put on the outside of your body. I realised long ago that detergents, perfumes and chemicals acted as personal triggers and so it was reassuring to read that I haven't been wrong in my assumption and that so many artificial products really do act as triggers for both migraine and vertigo, the statement, "Avoid putting anything on your skin that you can't eat or drink " made perfect sense to me.

This is definitely my new go to book as I continue to cope with symptoms which I've learned to live with but, like many sufferers, I am constantly searching for new ways to cope, and this book certainly gave me some answers to questions which have long been a puzzle.

And just to add for those of us based in the UK that whilst there are references to US based medical practices it doesn't detract from the overall content to what is after all a very informative book.

If you live with migraine, and or vertigo, then here's a fabulous chance to win a copy in this generous giveaway or find the book here Amazon UK

  1. Hallo, Hallo,...

    I spied a link to another post of yours today, which is why I dropped by your blog - however, I regularly talk about having chronic migraines and I put 'migraineur' on my Twitter profile because it is a part of my life. Last year, 2018 was full of health issues - my migraines spiked quite dearly and for the past two years, one thing I've noticed that helps offset them is listening to audiobooks which I'm attempting to do more of each year. Mostly as a book blogger, I read a higher volume of books (overall) per year and by offsetting with audio, I have noticed progress.

    I'm all about health and wellness, finding new ways to have food and diet effectively change my health for the better - so when I spied "The Migraine Relief" Plan - I literally quit reading the other post and hopped on this one!! I've been trying to find a way to lessen the frequency of migraines but also, work towards ending them - also, like the blogger, I've been switching to more natural products for myself and my house.

    I had a lot of issues with conventional care products years ago which is what made switching them out for greener, healthier options quite easier to do. From what I can gather based on this review, I might gain key insights into working towards my own migraine-free life and that would be a wicked sweet blessing! I'm all for self-education and for finding natural remedies and healthier ways of eating to work towards having a better future of health.

    Thank you for this chance to win a copy!!
