Chronic Migraines, Fame and a Cookbook

April 26, 2013

That’s right.  Chronic migraines can lead to fame and a contract to publish a cookbook!  OK, so this is a bit of an exaggeration.  More accurately: if you are the wildly famous, beautiful and talented Gwyneth Paltrow and experience a severe migraine attack, it will inspire you to write a drug free migraine prevention cookbook that will be published and widely featured as a news story in popular media!  The New York Post announced the publication of Ms. Paltrow’s new cookbook titled “It’s All Good” last month.   

In the article, the actress reveals that during one sunny afternoon in early 2011, she suddenly became faint, had severe head pain, couldn’t think clearly or even speak, .  She was convinced she was having a stroke.  It turns out that she was experiencing a migraine and panic attack.  At her doctor’s recommendation, she went on a three-week strict diet to cleanse and heal her body.  The drug free migraine treatment required that she eliminate various foods including wheat, shellfish, coffee, sugar, meat and vegetables like bell pepper, potatoes, eggplant, tomatoes and corn.  She claims she felt great after three weeks.  For those of you who suffer with chronic migraines, sugar-dairy-gluten-free diets are hardly groundbreaking news. 

Are you sad that you don’t have a book deal on the horizon?  Look at the positive!  Now you have a fantastic cookbook, written with someone just like you in mind.

Taking better care of yourself, eating healthier and staying positive can be part of any comprehensive drug free migraine treatment.  Choosing to take Gwyneth’s inspiration and a proactive approach to treating your migraine condition from this story may not lead to fame and a cookbook deal, but it can help lead you to the right migraine treatment.
