Did you ever think there could be a connection between your migraines and the food you eat?
Patient testimonies and studies have shown that certain foods can trigger migraines. Avoiding those nasty migraines starts with eating healthy foods. This means you should avoid foods that contain added preservatives, yeasts, flavoring, and other substances such as nitrites and
phenylalanine that are known to trigger headaches.
Foods that potentially stimulate migraines include:
Alcohol (particularily red wine and beer)
Cured meats (like beef or salami)
Homemade bread, doughnuts, cake, and rolls
Smoked or dried fish
Potato chip products
Instead, eat healthy foods such as:
Fresh chicken, fish, lamb, pork, or turkey
White, wheat, rye, or pumpernickel bread
Unflavored crackers (like saltines or Club crackers)
Some patients get headaches 2 hours after eating the wrong foods, however some patients won't feel the pain until 24 hours later. Keep a journal record of what you eat so you can eliminate the foods that prompt your headaches!
