Nutrition research study for patients with migraine headaches using dietary intervention

  • Do you have frequent migraines days each month? 
  • Have you suffered from headaches for at least 2 years? 
  • Are you at least 18 years of age? 
  • Have you been diagnosed with migraine? 
  • Would you be willing to meet 8 times with a registered dietitian and keep a daily headache diary for 6 months? 

If you answered yes to all the above questions, you may qualify for the Nutrition and Migraine Prevention study.

Your next step is to call Chanee Lynch, Paula Anderson, or Kim Faurot at the UNC Program on Integrative Medicine in the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation to determine your eligibility for the study.

You will be compensated $600 for completing all sessions and filling out questionnaires and a daily headache diary throughout the study. You will also receive enough food for 2 meals per day over a 4 month period and reimbursement for transportation and parking costs.
