What Foods Can You Eat to Prevent Migraines?
We respect your privacy. But by avoiding some of your triggers, it might be possible to cut back on the frequency of the attacks. In general, however, going too long without eating or drinking can provoke head pain, according to Dr. Rosen, which could put some people at risk more than others. Your direct trigger — or class of foods — may be difficult to pinpoint, but here are some usual suspects:.
Most of us have had the occasional headache. Over 30 percent of those adults reported having a migraine. Recent studies and research suggest that tweaks to your diet could help to decrease the likelihood of even experiencing a migraine. Certain diet changes may also reduce the frequency of your migraines. Migraine is a severe headache, usually on one side of the head and often accompanied by nausea or light sensitivity. This is due to temporary changes in the nerve conduction within the brain.

Certain foods can cause migraines, while others can prevent or even treat them. Physicians Committee research published in the Journal of Headache and Pain found that a plant-based diet reduces migraine pain. The decline in migraine pain may have been due to the elimination of dietary pain triggers such as meat and dairy products or by weight loss or hormonal changes brought on by the diet change. The first step in tackling your migraines is to check whether any of the common triggers are causing them. To do this, you simply avoid these foods. At the same time, include generous amounts of pain-safe foods in your routine and see whether migraines occur, and, if so, how often. If your diet change makes your headaches disappear or become much less frequent, the next step is to confirm which foods are your triggers.
