Dietary Modifications for Migraine Relief
Certain foods, such as chocolate, aged cheese, citrus fruits, red wine and others, may cause headaches in susceptible people and avoiding these foods may help with migraine relief. For long-lasting migraine relief, it is important to identify and reduce food-related headache triggers (along with others, including stress, sleep deprivation, and fatigue). This can be done by maintaining a careful diary of headaches and eating habits. To date, only a few dietary intervention trials have been conducted to determine if dietary changes can reduce headache pain. One of them is a blood test for mediator release and a dietary management program that assists one in avoiding those foods that cause the headaches.

However, a significant decrease in migraine headache has been observed when dietary fat consumption is reduced. Decreasing fat can help with migraine relief. Other studies suggest that supplementing the diet with omega-3 fatty acids may be beneficial. Other potentially helpful supplements include coenzyme Q10 and melatonin. Again, more research is needed on these supplements to determine their safety and effectiveness. A mediator release test and immuno-calm diet may be the answer. Click here to learn more!!
