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.

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 😘

This ties in with my Doc giving me a low dose of Blood Pressure meds, and for the month I took it not even one migraine, I had a day that I could feel one beginning so I took a second pill and Poof it was so far gone! So if you haven't tried this DO! I didn't fill mine yet this month and in 9 days I have tried to have 2 already, so I'm getting it ASAP~can't believe it!

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,
