Top 75 Migraine and Headache Questions, #12

Ask the Clinician Health Pro
  • Full Question:
    My better half suffers from Migraines, sometimes after an attack she will eat foods that make the situation come back, what foods can she eat that won't affect her on-set of another Migraine? Brock.


    Dear Brock;

    We can't tell you what foods she can eat because it varies from person to person. That's something she's going to have to systematically determine for herself.

    The best way to go about this is to do an elimination diet to determine what foods are triggers for her. She would eliminate all the known potential trigger foods, then add them back in one at a time to see which ones trigger a Migraine. Here's a link to an article and downloadable workbook that should help:
