Migraines: How Your Diet Plays a Role

Wednesday, 09 Feb 2011 04:18 PM

Researchers have established the role that diet plays in the occurrence and frequency of migraines. Adopting a diet that is tailored to preventing migraines is about making people aware of the various food items that cause migraines.

To help prevent migraines, try including cherries, pineapples, blueberries, and strawberries into your diet because they contain antioxidants and phytochemicals. A diet to treat migraines should also include plenty of water and plenty of fruits and vegetables.

If you’re prone to migraines, you may want to avoid chocolate, caffeine, red wine, and tyramine because they may cause frequent migraine attacks. Likewise, aged cheese, overripe bananas and avocados, pork, and soy based food should be completely avoided by a person suffering from migraine attacks. In addition to this, certain nuts and seeds should also be eliminated from the diet.
