Migraine headaches can be incredibly debilitating and disrupt the life of seemingly anyone at anytime. But what if there were a nutritional component behind why these headaches happen? That’s exactly what a neurologist and founder of the Atlanta Center for Headache Relief named Dr. Josh Turknett has been about since conducting research on migraines and neurodegenerative diseases. In fact, he’s written a book about it entitled The Migraine Miracle: A Sugar-Free, Gluten-Free, Ancestral Diet to Reduce Inflammation and Relieve Your Headaches for Good sharing the kind of diet changes he uses with patients with great success in ridding them of headache pain.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Turknett talk about his book and why he wrote it, why modern high-carb diets are leading directly to migraines, the association between Vitamin D, sunshine, and headaches, how processed foods like Dorito’s can trigger an immediate headache, how he approaches his patients to teach them about proper nutrition, how a low-carb ketogenic diet can improve headaches, what his fellow neurologists think about his dietary approach to treating his patients, his personal experience using ancestral health principles with patients that has revolutionized the way he practices medicine, what he learned from being involved in pharmaceutical research, his unique view of obesity from a neurologist’s perspective and so much more. Ironically, I had one of the worst headaches I’ve ever had in the midst of doing this interview, so it was especially relevant to him that day. Listen and enjoy!
