This book grew out of the work author Barbara Mountier has done to help herself and others find natural ways of relieving migraine pain and reduce the frequency and strength of migraine attacks. Some 15 percent of New Zealanders suffer from migraine. A sufferer as a child, and again from her early 40s, Mountier realised that many foods can act as triggers for different people. Red wine, cheese and chocolate are well known 'danger' foods for some. Much less known is that almost any food can, for some, set off the agony of a migraine attack. This tells how to do your own detective work. Mountier has researched the widely dispersed literature on food allergies and food chemical intolerance in relation to migraine and has brought together ways in which sufferers can reduce and control attacks of migraine. About the author Barbara Mountier is the co-ordinator of the Kapiti Migraine Support Group where she takes great pleasure in their progress and successes. A former secondary school teacher of English and music, and a founder and past president of the Mana Parents Centre, she is particularly interested in issues of peace and social justice. This 1995 Cape Catley Paperback is in Mint condition.
