that Trigger Migraine Headaches
wanted to know what common foods can trigger off migraine attacks,
and it may be worth listing them on the board too for all, since migraines
are so common today. But, trigger foods are not the be all and end
all of the matter, because there are stress links as well as emotional
inputs, hormonal influences, and some medications as well.
commonest foods which can cause difficulty (but sometimes what affects
one person is fine for another) include
and peanut butter
in all products, not just coffee
beans (which includes peanut), as well as broad, lima, Italian,
lentil, soy, peas
soups and packet soup mixes
products as well as the bean itself
nitrate, which is used to preserve hot dogs, bacon and cured meats
preservative benzoic acid and its associated compounds
common name for monosodium glutamate, a flavor enhancer which is
now in almost universal use in almost all processed foods
which have been aged, i.e. cheddar
wines, beer, champagne, vermouth
the list seems depressingly long, there are other food triggers as
well, but the good news is that most of the list comes from the highly
processed and manufactured food products so aren't too difficult to
identify, test, and eliminate from the diet.
