Top Trigger Foods & Allergens That Contribute To Migraines

Studies have shown that lifestyle, and diet can play a large role in how often you get migraines.

In a PubMed study, the elimination of personal food triggers and allergens saw a 44 percent drop in migraines. Common migraine triggers and allergens include alcohol (especially red wine (high in pesticides and herbicides) and beer), chocolate, aged cheese, cured meats, smoked fish, yeast extract, food preservatives that contain nitrates and nitrites, high fructose corn syrup, artificial sweeteners, monosodium glutamate (MSG), dairy, eggs, and gluten.

These triggers and allergens inflame the body, especially the gut. Inflammation of the gut or Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), effects the "Gut / Brain" connection. IBS is a generic term for having stomach and gut discomfort or pain for at least three days per month.

If you are serious about eliminating migraines, a diet and lifestyle change is needed. It can be overwhelming when trying to eliminating foods from a diet. The first question is often, “What do I eat?” If you are eating the standard American diet, you may not realize how many other options there are; and not just salads. It’s suggested that when eliminating food triggers and allergens, a diet and lifestyle coach can guide you through the process while educating at the same time.
