This study was undertaken to assess the impact of three months of targeted nutritional therapy for migraine on health-related quality of life. The study is also intended to lend support to a theory that migraine is caused by an underlying dysfunction involving assimilation or elimination mechanisms. Forty people were selected from approximately 120 applications. Fourteen participants were selected from among those applicants within the authors' practices and 26 from applicants solicited via the Internet. Participants were required to complete the Medical Outcomes Trust Migraine Specific Quality of Life (MSQ) Questionnaire. Eighty percent of the study participants experienced significant and sustained improvements in quality of life during the 90 days of the study. The study instrument is specifically designed to measure quality of life improvement and thus does not solicit responses relative to number of migraine attacks or duration of each migraine. However, it should be noted that improvement in quality of life is likely due to a reduction in the duration and frequency of migraine attacks.
