Do you suffer from migraines and headaches? The food you eat could be the root of the problem.
A migraine is a throbbing intense headache on either side of the head. Painful and sometimes disabling, they are often accompanied by nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to light, noise, and smell. Migraines tend to recur; typically last 4 to 24 hours, sometimes up to 3 days. During a migraine attack changes in chemicals and blood vessels in the brain are what is thought to cause the pain.
Migraines can be triggered by reactions to foods. Clinical studies show that identifying and eliminating trigger foods can reduce the severity and, or, frequency of headaches or even stop them. First you need to know what to change. An elimination diet, lasting several weeks, restricts the foods you eat to identify food sensitivities. Eliminating one food at a time to see if it helps reduce the severity of attacks is very time consuming. Also, it’s almost impossible to test all the different combinations of food types that may be causing the problems.
