Migraine is a neurological illness that is often characterised by headaches that are so painful and incapacitating that they make it difficult to do even the most basic tasks.
The blogs help persons with migraine and other excruciating chronic headaches by educating, motivating, and emancipating them.
There are a number of foods that can cause migraines. According to Allonen, neither one of these has been scientifically shown to be a migraine trigger, but many people claim there is a connection between consuming these items and getting a migraine. Several things could cause a migraine:
- Aspartame (Equal, NutraSweet) (Equal, NutraSweet)
- Caffeine (If you don’t drink the same quantity of caffeine every day, caffeine withdrawal might cause a migraine to develop; nevertheless, caffeine can help stop a migraine when it starts.)
- dairy items with a culture, like yoghurt
- fava beans are one type of broad bean.
- nut butters with nuts
- processed meats like bacon and cold cuts contain nitrates and nitrites.
- The sulfites that are present in wine
- Tyramine, a substance present in aged cheeses, meats, and fermented drinks.
Can food help us avoid a migraine? Unfortunately, there are no magical food. However, Allonen did mention that it may be crucial to maintain constant blood sugar levels throughout the day. Use these suggestions to do it. (Yes, it will also assist us in maintaining a healthy heart.)
- Eat little, regular meals.
- Select whole grains instead of processed ones (whole wheat bread vs. white bread, for example)
- consume lean protein with each meal.

Keeping a daily headache diary in which you record everything you eat and drink, your activities, your stress level, the weather, as well as how your head feels, may be the most effective preventative measure. Even though it is tedious, the effort is beneficial as patterns begin to show. One member of the audience mentioned, for instance, that she discovered she only experienced headaches after eating pizza and chocolate at the same dinner.
