Food as Headache Remedy
The most common cause of headaches is food. Some headaches occur as a result of having allergic reactions to foods or elements in our diet. These troublemakers may be totally natural such as milk protein or they may be man made chemicals that are laced in our foods so abundantly by food technologists. Around 1913 the suspicion began to surface that migraine headaches were caused by allergic reactions. Since then numerous scientific studies have proven a definite link between common foods and migraine headaches. The good news is the discovery that between 70% and 90% of patients suffering from long-term migraines can be liberated from their suffering in two weeks or less once they pinpoint and remove the offending foods. The benefits of switching one's diet are not confined to eliminating migraines.
Migrating toward healthier foods is the route we want to take if we are suffering from general reccurring headaches or migraines. The most important foods to get rid of first are dairy products including cottage cheese,yogurt and skim milk. Dairy products are the number one allergen -that is to say more people are allergic to dairy products than any other food. The next most likely offenders are chocolate and eggs followed by citrus fruits, corn and wheat. We should realize that the potential for being harmed by these offending foods is without limit. If eliminating these foods does not put an end to your headaches then you should consider doing an elimination diet in order to identify the offending foods.
