Heal Your Headaches Through Your Diet HTML version
Is there a connection between the food that you eat and headache?
According to ancient holistic medicine such as Traditional Chinese Medicine
and Indian Ayurvedic Medicine, there is. In addition, recent research
indicates that certain substances in food may cause changes in blood vessel
tone, thus bringing on the headaches in susceptible people. Headache
experts have estimated that 10% to 30% of headaches are related to food
There is also an increasing amount of information pointing to serotonin (a
neurotransmitter - chemical involved in the transmission of nerve impulses
between nerve cells - that's formed in the brain and primarily found in three
parts of the body Ð the brain, the lining of the digestive tract, and in blood
platelets) as playing a significant role in migraine. The good news is that
while not much is understood at this point in time, more attention and
research is likely to go into studying the relationship between serotonin,
food triggers and headaches.
In this report, I will be covering three main ways that you can heal your
headaches through your diet:
(1) Avoiding food triggers,
(2) Consuming herbal remedies and
(3) Consuming vitamins and supplements that have been shown to be
helpful in the prevention of headaches and migraines.
