Dr Jessica Briscoe and Dr Katy Munro are my guests from The National Migraine Centre which is the only national charity that provides a clinic for migraine sufferers and cluster headache patients. They have been delivering expert and evidence-based support for 40 years.
In addition, they are committed to advocating their desperate cause and educating healthcare professionals and started their own podcast called Heads Up, which aims to provide useful information for those suffering with headache.
Migraine is the third most common chronic disease in the world, affecting an estimated one in seven people and two to three times more women than men. In the UK approximately 25 million days are lost each year from work or school because of migraines which is why I wanted to do a comprehensive podcast on this topic discussing food and Lifestyle measures for migraine sufferers.

As a specialised clinic we have acquired a substantial body of knowledge over the years; knowledge that is constantly evolving. Some of this comes from being a research centre, but most of it comes from the patients we see. Not only do the results of our research feed directly into our clinical care; the information from our patients also feeds directly into our research. All our medical staff are fully qualified doctors with a specialist interest in migraine and headache, and are registered with the UK’s General Medical Council. Therefore your headaches will never be dismissed as trivial. Our doctors provide expertise on various specialist areas including: neurology, women’s health and ophthalmology. You will be assigned to one specialist who you will usually see at each of your visits.
