Diet for Migraine Relief

Monday, January 14, 2013 @ 03:01 PM

A 1979 study published in the Lancet, “The commonest foods causing reactions were wheat (78 percent), orange (65 percent), eggs (45 percent), tea and coffee (40 percent each), chocolate and milk (37 percent) each), beef (35 percent), and corn, cane sugar, and yeast (33 percent each).

Processed foods in general can also contribute to allergies for a number of different reasons, and most processed foods contain a variety of food colorings, flavors, preservatives, and other additives that may also promote headaches and migraines. Both aspartame and MSG are notorious for causing headaches and triggering migraines.

Keeping a detailed food diary is the easiest way to start tracking down potentially migraine-inducing foods, as well as foods that cause other symptoms of sensitivity. One of the best things you can do for your child if you believe he/she is suffering from a food allergy is to do a diet elimination challenge. Remove all foods that contain what you believe you or your child is allergic to, and see if your symptoms improve over the next several days.

Some of the top migraine-inducing foods identified include: wheat, cow’s milk, grain cereals, cane sugar, yeast,corn,citrus, eggs.

To confirm the results, you’ll want to reintroduce the food or drink (on an empty stomach). If the suspected food is the culprit you will generally be able to feel the allergy symptoms return within an hour.
