The Migraine Diet Connection

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.

When should you consider adverse food reactions?

  • When migraine pain is frequent and persistent
  • When more than one medical problem is present
  • When you are not getting the relief you want from medical treatment
