We report a case of a 60-year-old man who struggled with frequent migraines for 12.5 years. These did not respond to conventional therapies. Six months before initial consultation, these migraines become chronic. The patient was then advised to follow the Low Inflammatory Foods Everyday (LIFE) diet, a nutrient-dense, dark green leafy vegetable-rich, whole food plant-based diet. Within two months, his headache frequency declined from 18 to 24 headache days per month to one, and he discontinued his preventive and abortive migraine medications. After three months, the patient had no headaches.
The patient in this case study completely eliminated his severe chronic migraine headaches and has not needed medication for 7.5 years following initiation of the LIFE diet.
