Healthy Eating Habits
Reactions to foods and food chemicals can play a key role in triggering migraines. Identifying reactivity to food can be frustrating since symptoms can occur 4 to even 96 hours after a food or chemical is ingested. In addition, the types of food that trigger migraines are highly individual and usually involve more than one food or food chemical.
Implementing a process to avoid these foods and food chemicals has been demonstrated to improve the frequency and severity of migraine pain and in some situations eliminate migraines completely. The dieticians at Food 4 life housed within Puget Sound Neurology offers nutrition consulting and chemical sensitivity testing to help patients identify their unique set of triggers and to reduce migraine pain.
