Nach 30 Jahren Recherchen und eigenen Untersuchungen legt der Verfasser eine Monographie über Migräneanfälligkeit und Migräneauslöser vor. Ein solches Buch für Migräne-Ärzte und Migränepatienten gibt es bisher in der ganzen Welt noch nicht. Nirgendwo findet man so viele Migräneauslöser (etwa 250) und die zugehörige Literatur. Nirgendwo gibt es eine solch ausführliche Betrachtung der Migräneauslöser. Hier finden Sie eine Hypothese, mit der fast alle Migräneauslöser erklärt werden können. Kein Migränebuch enthält die Vorstellung des wichtigen Aspektes „erhöhte Migräneanfälligkeit“, die oft erst die Voraussetzung für einen Migräneanfall ist. Wer Interesse an der Migräne hat, wird zahlreiche neue Fakten und Gedanken finden. Er muss nicht für Stunden im Internet suchen, sondern hat die meisten Fakten in einem Buch vereint. This is a book about migraine triggers and increased migraine susceptibility, in which you can find about 250 migraine triggers with 20 pages references. Nowhere you can find such a synopsis about migraine triggers (History, Is it useful to pay attention to migraine triggers? How can you establish migraine triggers? What could be the mechanism of migraine triggering? What does speak for an increased stimulation of adrenergic receptors and/or an increased NO as mechanism of migraine triggering? Should migraine patients avoid or accustomed to migraine triggers? If possible – prevention of migraine triggering.). Migraine susceptibility characterises the phenomenon, that migraine attacks of different frequency rate can be released by migraine triggers or occur spontaneously. Every migraine expert is familiar with this phenomenon, however, it is impossible to find literature on it. Here are the first facts on the basic principles and the therapy of migraine susceptibility.

The many manifestations of migraine can vary dramatically from one patient to another, even within the same patient at different times. Among the most compelling and perplexing of these symptoms are the strange visual hallucinations and distortions of space, time, and body image which migraineurs sometimes experience. Portrayals of these uncanny states have found their way into many works of art, from the heavenly visions of Hildegard von Bingen to Alice in Wonderland. Dr. Oliver Sacks argues that migraine cannot be understood simply as an illness, but must be viewed as a complex condition with a unique role to play in each individual's life.

Migraine headaches are familiar and generally treatable ailments. Less understood are migraine auras or scotoma, visual distortions—sometimes accompanied by headache and sometimes not—that make it difficult, sometimes impossible, to see clearly. Migraine auras can be frightening, disorienting, even incapacitating. Richard Grossinger, who has suffered from them himself, here presents a helpful guide to the subject that maps the terrain, describes the various forms migraine auras can take, charts his personal experiences with them, and offers informed suggestions for homeopathic and other treatments.

In recent years the bestselling Awakenings and The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat have received great critical acclaim, but Oliver Sacks's readers may remember that he began his medical career working with migraine patients. In this, the latest edition of "Migraine," he returns to his first book and enriches it with additional case histories, new findings, and practical information on treatment. To define "migraine, " suggests Oliver Sacks, one must embrace the dizzying variety of experiences of its sufferers. For some, the affliction features of a headache of monumental proportions. For others, there is no pain at all. Some attacks are triggered by weather, some intense light. Still others consist of intense light -- hallucinatory displays of dazzling loops, stars, and geometrics. "Migraine" is Sacks's brilliant examination of a debilitating ailment and the profound implications of neurological illness. Synthesizing his patients' case histories with 2,000 years of human research into the problem, he casts the migraine as exemplar of our psychological transparency, a complex biological response to external factors. Here is a classic meditation on the nature of health and malady, on the unity of mind and body. Here, too, is Sacks's discovery of how the migraine shows us, through hallucinatory displays, the elemental activity of the cerebral cortex -- and potentially, the self-organizing patterns of Nature itself. Enormously compelling, compassionate, and profound, Migraine offers comfort for sufferers -- and insight to all.
