Your Diet and Migraine Headaches in Sacramento California

Your diet and migraine headaches in Sacramento California

Do you or someone you know suffer from migraine headaches? If you do, you might have sought the help of neurologists, naturopaths, and even general practitioners in attempts to find a prescription or procedure that would alleviate the constant and unbearable pain. Sometimes something as simple as a change in your diet can alleviate your migraine headache.

For certain people, think about the occurrence of migraines in the same way that you would someone who starts sniffling and sneezing on a beautiful summer day. Your first thought wouldn't be that they have a cold, rather you might associate their sniffling and sneezing with allergies.

According to one study, some people may have a lower tolerance to things found in everyday foods and beverages like aspartame, nitrates, glutamate, and more. This may not be the case for everyone who suffers from migraine headaches, but a food journal will help you to determine the cause of your migraines.

Possible Dietary Migraine Triggers:

  • Caffeine
  • Alcohol
  • Certain Cheeses (Blue cheese, Brie, Cheddar, Feta, Parmesan, and more)
  • Avocados
  • Overripe Bananas
  • Nuts
  • Chocolate
  • Apple Juice
  • MSG

If you suffer from migraine headaches, you don't need to continue to suffer. The cause of your headaches may be an ingredient in the foods you eat everyday. There are now two steps you can take to begin to alleviate the pain.

Food Journal

If you suffer from migraines, and you think a certain food or ingredient might be the culprit, keeping a journal of the foods you eat everyday will help you to pinpoint that part of your diet that triggers your migraine headaches. Once you determine the food that triggers your migraines, you can change your diet and avoid the foods you once enjoyed, or you can seek the help of an Upper Cervical Specialist.

Upper Cervical Care

In much the same way that allergies occur because of a breakdown in the body's immune system, food induced migraines also can occur because of a breakdown in the body's immune system. Upper cervical care can help restore the ability of the body's immune system to function properly, so as to eliminate food triggered migraine headaches. Upper cervical care also improves blood and cerebrospinal fluid flow to from and through your brain which can frequently address the underlying cause of migraines that is making you susceptible to these triggers.
