Migraine – can frequency be reduced with nutrition?

Migraines and severe headaches affect around one in six adults in the US, and around a quarter of people suffering report that certain foods can trigger their symptoms.



The exact causes of migraines remain unclear, although there is evidence that inflammation plays a role, an IgG antibodies may correlate with inflammation.


A range of studies have shown improvement of symptoms in migraine patients when treated with nutritional supplements such as CoQ10 and riboflavin. Conversely, studies show a connec-tion between allergens such as house dust and wheat with increased frequency of migraines.


Consuming the right kinds of fats also seems to be critical in migraine patients, particularly omega-3 fatty acids.
