Synopsis: Outwitting Headaches provides all the information needed to stop headaches in their tracks and, better yet, to avoid or prevent them entirely.
After a lifetime of suffering from splitting migraine headaches that were merely aggravated by attempts to subdue them with prescription drugs, Mark Wiley had had enough pain and frustration. He set out on a fifteen-year quest to research all the methods available for treating headaches. Working by personal experience through all the Western pharmaceuticals, all the useless psychotherapy, and all the alternative therapies of the month, he moved on in desperation to Asia to test the traditional remedies of Chinese and other indigenous medicinal traditions. His travels took him to the mountains of Malaysia, the barrios of the Philippines, and back-alley healers of Japan, Singapore, and Taiwan. He tried bone setters, shamans, faith healers, acupuncturists, qigong masters, energy healers, herbalists, and massage therapists. He studied and practiced various mind-body methods of qigong, yoga, meditation, and martial arts.
Nothing worked-at least, not for long. The headaches still struck with the sudden savage fury of a lightning bolt. Then, at long last, like Newton and Archimedes, Mark had his Eureka! moment. And, of course, it was simple and self-evident. The key to ending suffering from headaches is proactive avoidance of causes rather than reactive treatment of symptoms.
Outwitting Headaches sets out systematically the noninvasive methods Mark has developed to avoid the chemicals, drugs, drinks, foods, and even behaviors that serve as triggers for headaches, while removing from the personal environment as many of the immediate causes of headache as possible. In addition, this book teaches how to quickly restore the balance necessary to live headache free when there is inadvertent exposure to triggers or causes.

Mark V. Wiley, OMD, is living proof that his eight-part program really works. After nearly thirty years of incapacitating headaches, he traveled the world in search of a cure. He developed one based on in-depth research and his personal experiences at the hands of physicians, psychologists, chiropractors, acupuncturists, bone setters, faith healers, and shamans. He is a doctor of Oriental medicine, practitioner of acupuncture, and master of qigong (the Chinese skill of cultivating energy) and tuina (Chinese massage). Dr. Wiley is also a medical writer for HealUSA.net. He has written nine books on health, martial arts, and Asian culture, and his articles have appeared in magazines and journals worldwide. He lives in Philadelphia, where he practices integrated energy medicine.
