1. The 4-Phase Histamine Reset Plan: Getting to the Root of Migraines, Eczema, Vertigo, Allergies and More by Dr. Becky Campbell
Dr. Becky Campbell understands that histamine intolerances are at the root of various chronic conditions because she suffers from it herself. She explains the biochemical mechanisms and how to address them through various dietary practices.
2. A Memoir of Migraine Survival by Danielle Newport Fancher
The memoir of the double life lived by migraine sufferers: the constant excruciating pain contrasted with the semblance of "being okay." With a foreword by the president of the Association of Migraine Disorders, this critically acclaimed book is a must-read.
3. Migraine: A History by Katherine Foxhall
For such a common and debilitating condition, it is odd that its history often goes untold. How have cultural practices and treatments changed over time?
4. Migraine by Oliver Sacks
Dr. Oliver Sacks explains the intriguing visual hallucinations often experienced by migraineurs, and argues that this unique experience must not be considered an "illness," but an experience.
Check out some book recommendations and favorites from Members of MyMigraineTeam:
"I recently finished reading both of Marie Kondo’s books and have watched a few episodes of her Netflix show, Tidying Up. I think she would be quite proud of the small gains I made today."

"So I did some research, found the article, stopped eating it immediately and woke up feeling 50% better."
