Has Anyone Had Success With Changing Their Diet To Help Limit Their Migraines?

I have been suffering from headaches and migraines for almost a year and half now. I feel like I've gone down the rabbit hole like in Alice in wonderland trying to find a solution and have constantly come up empty. You name it, probably tried it: daith piercing, acupuncture, chiropractor, preventative migraine medicine, essential oils... I am looking to change my diet now to see if that potentially helps. If anyone has done this and… read more

Very much so. I changed my diet approximately 2 months ago and have gone from 2-3 migraines a week to have had only 3 since changing my diet.

My smoothies have a base of banana, spinach, and cucumber, plus whatever other fruit I have around.

Just throwing this out there. My friend had really bad migraines for years until he got diagnosed with high blood pressure. Since he started taking his meds, about a year ago, not one migraine. Hope you get relief from yours!

I have been getting migraines on average 4 times a week for a few years. I cut out caffeine, dairy, gluten and sugar one at a time with no effect. But upping my water intake to 4litres a day has helped. No fizzy drinks, juices or cordials and limited caffeine. Maybe worth a try. Best Wishes 😘

Magnesium has helped considerably, but no cure. I also don't eat white flour or gluten, no alcohol. no sugar, or dairy. Wheat, although not an official allergy, leaves me congested, which leads to migraines for me. Believe it or not, it's not that difficult as there are plenty of substitutes. Eliminate one thing at a time to see which might be a trigger,

I eliminated several things from my diet many years ago. For example, I can't eat any processed meats, anything with sodium nitrates in it will give me a migraine quicker than anything. I also recently found out the hard way that almonds in any way (nuts, milk, etc.) will also give me a migraine. So I've had to switch to coconut milk when I make a smoothie, which is fine, neither of them has a strong taste.
