David M. Dunaief, M.D.
PainRelief.com: What is the background for this study? What are the main findings?
Response: As an internist focusing on dietary intervention, I have been caring for patients with chronic diseases for the past 12 years. Many of my patients have had rapid, marked improvements when they adhere to my LIFE (Low Inflammatory Foods Everyday) diet. The diet, as well as objective evidence that it reduces systemic inflammation (lowers serum C-reactive protein levels), has been described in the peer-reviewed publications:
In addition to improving migraines, the diet has improved symptoms and blood chemistries in patients with high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, cancer, auto-immune diseases, inflammatory bowel disease, and others. In this case report, we describe a patient who suffered from debilitating migraines for 12.5 years, and who had minimal benefit from avoiding dietary triggers or medications. Within 3 months of adopting the LIFE diet, he was migraine free and remained that way for 7.5 years.
