Happy to say that one of my patients Tausha, a long time migraine sufferer, has gotten her life back and is migraine-free. Tausha had 6-12 migraine attacks every month!
Here is the video. Ignore all the fluff that the physicians are discussing about the oligoantigenic diet. Tausha was reactive to most of those foods that were discussed as safe foods on the “O Diet” !
One of Ohio’s local newspaper, Toledo Blade also covered her story. You can find a link to Tausha’s story here – http://www.toledoblade.com/Our-Town-News/2014/04/04/Sylvania-Township-woman-to-appear-on-Dr-Oz-Show.html
Sylvania Township woman to appear on ‘Dr. Oz Show’

Sylvania Township resident Tausha Moore doesn’t believe in keeping a bucket list. Instead she keeps a list of all the extraordinary things she’s accomplished in life.
Soon, she will be able to cross off the list obtaining an appearance on daytime television.
The 40-year-old public relations manager at Martopia Public Relations Group in Ann Arbor shot a segment with one of the most recognized doctors, Dr. Mehmet Oz. The segment is scheduled to run on the Dr. Oz Show at 5 p.m. Thursday, April 10 on WNWO-TV in Toledo or at 4 p.m. that day on WXYZ-TV in Detroit.
In an effort to try to get an appearance for one of her clients, Ms. Moore spoke to the show’s producers. Three weeks ago, a producer mentioned in talking to her the show was searching for someone on the Oligoantigenic Diet, an extreme diet that eliminates foods believed to cause inflammation or allergic reactions in the body.
“I told the producer, ‘that’s me.’ She said we are not looking for an expert. I said ‘no, no, that’s me. I am on the diet,’” Ms. Moore said. She is on the diet to minimize migraines.
The next thing she knew she was being whisked off to New York City that night to film a segment the next day.
“I was happy to do it,” she said. “If it works for me, I want to tell other people.”
The experience was a bit of a change for her, usually counseling clients on TV appearances, she was now the one being prepped for her camera shot.
A publicist for the show said Ms. Moore talked to Dr. Oz about the “controversial new treatment helping people heal from conditions they’ve suffered their whole lives,” as “Tausha suffered from migraines for over 27 years.”
Ms. Moore helped the show introduce the diet to viewers, which eliminates foods that may cause allergic reactions in a person’s body, including fruit, wheat, fish, chicken, eggs, peanuts, and chocolate, the publicist said. She went on the diet, after trying other diets, even a vegan diet, which she found actually doubled her migraines to 12 per month.
Ms. Moore follows a diet administered by dietician Aarti Batavia in Novi, Mich. It eliminates certain foods and brought others back in by phases. She even carries a wallet-size card to remind her of food “migraine triggers.”
“A natural way to overcome migraines,” Ms. Moore said about following the “O” diet, as Dr. Oz calls it. Ever since the program taping, she said her migraines dropped from 6 per month to zero.
