All the comments about my book on social media and the ones from my patients, friends and some academicians made me very happy. As my readers say, this book will complete its mission if it helps science to follow a new path and changes the existent approach about migraine treatment.

Dr. Emel Gokmen’s approach foresees a treatment by detecting the real cause of the problem and combining traditional medicine with the integrative one. She, specialized on curing headaches that are treated with drugs of increasing doses since the real cause is not being looked for and thus found, defeated her own migraine first. And afterwards, freed hundreds of patients from their migraine or other pains they accepted as their faith. I personally know some of them and witnessed their reincarnation to a life free from pain and drugs.
Emel Gokmen finally gathered all these experiences she had and her new approach to pain in a book called Migraine Solutions!. This simply written, exciting and promising book is also extending the horizons of medicine because…
It reminds the medical world, especially to our country, the two forgotten, basic rules. The first is “Primum non nocere”, “First, do not cause harm” and the second is “Aude sapere”, “Dare to know”.

This patient oriented book will also be a beneficial and inspiring resource for clinicians, academicians and dentists. I hope that this book gets the popularity it deserves and conduces to new horizons on the treatments of painful patients.
My dearest friend Dr. Emel Gokmen’s book. And I wrote the prologue. To those who are interested. Migraine.
Prof. Dr. Bilge Hakan Sen – Academician, Endodontia Specialist
I thank Emel Gokmen so much for her new book.
It is an informing and directing book for not only migraineurs but for dentists as well.
I strongly recommend it.
Gizem Ataoglu – Academician / Former migraineur and fibromyalgia patient
An outstanding study about the things that are right before our eyes but go unseen since it requires a paradigm shift. This book makes that shift and explains a really complicated structure as if it’s an easy task. It is an amazing book, just as its writer…
Emre Coltu – Software Engineer, Physics / Former cluster headache patient
I am not a fan of reading but I did read Migraine Solutions. I bought the book because I was a former cluster headache patient of Dr. Gokmen’s. So first, I read the parts about my condition and then the whole book became interesting. It was written in a simple and compelling way to make people like me read it as well.
The best part of the book was the approach that also got me during my treatment. It was handling the problems considering the body as a network and solving them with a distinct approach, using physics. It was a unique, scientific and futuristic treatment. You can understand “Gokmen Approach” which freed me from an infirmity as cluster headache and make me enjoy my life again. And you’ll know why no other doctor in the world can fix cluster headache for good.
Dr. Emel Gokmen had once told me that she loved physics and mathematics. Her solution to the illnesses is a proof to that. Read this book even if you do not have any pain. You’ll gain a different perspective on these conditions and patients.
Nihat Ates – Critic, Poet / Former migraineur
I think I cannot even remember the time Dr. Emel Gokmen has cured my herniated disc. I was shocked when they attempted to place a platinum inside me while I was unable to do anything because I was afraid to collapse at home or on the way to somewhere. Then I began to look desperately for a method to make me better “without a surgery” and found her and neural therapy. Now I can travel via public transportation for hours with a heavy bag on my back and nothing happens.
I also had migraine and I cannot forget the way she smiled when I told her about how they diagnosed it. I suppose it was eighteen or twenty years ago. I told the doctor how severe my headaches were in a well-known hospital and he asked me since when. Then, when I answered him “Since I was a teenager,” he said “It’s been a long while. If it were about your brain, you’d be dead by now. Thus, you have migraine,” and sent me away by prescribing a painkiller.
Yes, I was seeing Dr. Emel Gokmen for my headache this time. Neural therapy was already helping with the attacks and giving me longer breaks but thanks to “Gokmen Approach”, now I can say that migraine is curable.
She also explains her method built by “listening” thousands of patients clearly in her book and tells some of their stories. They help defeating the “Am I the only one?” feeling that migraine caused and makes you feel supported.
Dr. Emel Gokmen is a very special scientist and a doctor. I am positive that her studies and method will be considered as an important contribution to medicine in the future and applied more widely.

No need to lie, I had already braced myself for the possible problems when I bought Migraine Solutions. I was almost sure that I will have to look up the medical terms in the dictionary, read endless and tiring sentences and that the solution will be nothing but a disappointment…
But I finished the book in the blink of an eye. Dr. Gokmen has explained her experiences so clearly that you think that you’re reading a novel. You enjoy the words, simple yet make you feel strong against your pain. And the happy endings of the patients are a proof that “Gokmen Approach” defeats migraine. I wish all the medical books would be like this one…
This book narrates the stories of real patients in a simple, story-like language.
Ilkan Serdaroglu – Musical Productor / Former low back-neck hernia and fibromyalgia patient
Dr. Emel Gokmen was the first person to say “Being a migraineur is a privilege”. The people who realize their privilege and get on with their lives happily after they left their pain at her cozy clinic in Nişantaşı are called “Dr. Emel Gokmen’s patients”.
Dr. Emel Gokmen, as the phrase is, wrote the book of migraine. Just as she says, as this treatment becomes popular, more people will be smiling.
We look forward to the next book about fibromyalgia.
Go to the closest bookstore and buy “Pain revolution-1 Migraine Solutions”. It will destroy all your taboos about the pain!
Oymen Ulusoy – Director / Reader
Dr. Emel Gokmen has brought a revolutionary work to medical world with the book she wrote in 2014, “Migraine Solutions”. The best part of this book is that it has been written in plain language for the patients. Pain is a revolution for Dr. Emel Gokmen who said: “I lived my own migraine again and again with each patient and felt suffocated with their ongoing pain. So be it. At the end we got better and happier together… Now I know that my long lasting struggle for curing migraine is based on the “fellowship of sufferers”.
Dr. Emel Gokmen will continue walking -no, running- on the way to stopping the pain based on the motto “Aude Sapere”.
Aysim Aksoy – Executive Assistant / Former migraineur
I finally understood the reason why I was being excessively insistent (forgive me if I’m being disturbing sometimes!) on making the “Migraine Solutions!” book—Neurologist Dr. Emel Gokmen wrote with the experience and knowledge she gained in years– famous and try to make you or your suffering loved ones reach it when I read the following quote.
Nobel Peace Prize owner, German humanitarian medical doctor Albert Schweitzer has named this as “Fellowship of the Mark of Pain” and said “Whoever is spared personal pain must feel himself called to help in diminishing the pain of others”.
Yonca Ebuzziya – Borusan Automotive Brand Ambassador / Former migraineur and neck hernia patient
Endless love to the woman who changed my life… I have found the cure before I read this book and I wish the same to all the readers. She is a dear friend of mine. She made me love myself. Before I’ve found her, I hated myself during my painful days.
She is a miracle woman to save me from migraine, and my husband, daughter and friends from many difficulties. Read Migraine Solutions!

Asude Kilic / Reader
I have learned a lot from the book I’m currently reading: Migraine Solutions. Thanks a lot Ms. Gokmen. I’ve learned so much. My husband is 83 and lately, he was sweating excessively. Then we had to have his wisdom tooth pulled. At 83. But I am grateful because since that day, his sweating has stopped. I read that section to my husband and he told me that he was not sweating anymore.
I cried when I heard this. I have suffered more than enough while I was in my 20s. Until the day I came home vomiting then fell down the stairs and broke my neck. I went through the same things as in this book. Thus, I want to come and meet you to congratulate on your success. Sincerely. You have given us an informant, beautiful book. Thank you for your efforts.
Zeynep Delibas / Former chronic migraineur
My dear friend Dr. Emel Gokmen’s book to enlighten long-term migraine patients has hit the shelves.
Read it. Whether you are a patient or not. Do not consider it as a medical book. It is more like a story.
