All about Migraine Diet

Foods To Avoid For Migraine Relief:

> Foods high in Tyramine or Phenylethylamine:

While everyone has differing food triggers, Tyramine and Phenylethylamine are common food triggers in migraine cases.

Processed meats, nuts, seeds, and aged cheese all contain these amino acids.Tyramine is also found in red wine, which is a known migraine trigger.

> Nitrates:

Nitrates, found in cured meats such as bacon, hot dogs, and salami, are triggers that can cause migraine headaches. Vegetables such as spinach, lettuce, and radishes also have high levels of Nitrates.

> Sulphites:

Prunes, figs, Apricots, and certain grape juices are Sulphite rich, and may be migraine food triggers.

> MSG:

MSG ( monosodium glutamate ) is a flavor enhancer that is to be avoided in migraine treatment.

> Aspartame:

Also known as Nutrasweet, this artificial sweetener is believed to be a migraine trigger.

> Alcohol:

Excessive amounts of alcohol can cause migraine headaches because of the high levels of Tyramine that alcoholic beverages contain.

The Migraine Diet:

These are foods that have been shown to reduce the frequency, intensity, and duration of migraine headaches.

> Fish:

Eating fish that is high in Omega-3 Fatty Acids ( Pacific Herring, Mackerel, Albacore Tuna, Salmon ) will lower the production of Prostaglandins, chemicals that may cause inflammation in the body, which can be a major cause of migraines.

> Foods Rich In Magnesium:

Soy milk, seafood, and black beans all have high levels of magnesium, a mineral that is important for blood pressure, heart rhythm, and helps with migraine relief.

> Tryptophan:

Turkey, black-eyed peas, whole grains, and walnuts are high in Tryptophan. The amino acid Tryptophan contributes in the production of Serotonin, a neurotransmitter that reduces the frequency of migraines.

Could Electromagnetic Fields

Mankind has lived for centuries with the naturally occurring EMFs from the Earth’s core and interaction with the Sun’s and the naturally occurring electromagnetic fields in our environment. However, it is only since the dawn of the industrial age, that we began to be bombarded with unnaturally produced EMFs and in intensities never before seen. Everything from cars, TVs, radios, broadcast signals, hair dryers, cell phones, computers and more emit EMFs that bombard us unnaturally. Living next to electrical power lines can bombard you at alarming levels that have even been linked to leukemia.

We’re not suggesting you shun all EMF producers and head for the deep woods and life of wilderness — even there you wouldn’t escape EMF bombardment with all the satellites beaming down, so what can you do to protect yourself?

One of the simplest is to wear a magnet on your body that produces enough of its own EMF in a safe way. A multi-polar magnet is just such a tool that does this. By being multi-polar, the magnet effectively generates an omni-directional EMF field that is just strong enough to keep your body from being bombarded by the artificially generated EMFs. How is this possible? A small localized electromagnetic field can easily buffer a much stronger external EMF and essentially push those waves away from the local area much like a car’s mass pushing the air out of the way as it drives down the highway.

Did you know that the Earth’s EMF is protecting you from the Sun’s much, much stronger EMF? The Sun has a diameter that is 109 times that of the Earth and a mass about 2×1030 kilograms, 330,000 times that of Earth. But even with this nearly incomprehensible difference in size and mass, not to mention the Sun being an EMF generator of magnificant proportions, the Earth EMF is able to push the incoming EMFs away. In fact, without Earth’s EMF, there would be no atmosphere to hold the air we breathe as the Sun’s EMF would simply carry away anything on the Earth’s surface.

Brain Freeze Discovered

Researchers saw that sipping the water caused a sudden blood flow increase to a key artery found in the brain. The piercing headache pain then followed. The researchers speculate that the quick alterations in blood flow that come with brain freeze might be part of some type of built-in survival mechanism from long ago.

The brain, being one of our most important organs, and sensitive to temperature, may simply be responding to sudden cold by moving blood into the tissue to be sure it stays warm enough. Since the brain is housed within a closed structure (the skull), the sudden increase in blood would bring up the pressure, causing pain.

If future work confirms the findings on blood flow, experts feel that developing medications that control the flow of blood to the brain might help ease brain freeze and other, longer lasting headaches. These headaches have been particularly hard to study because no one can say for sure when a migraine will come on, and by the time the patient is alerted, researchers often don’t pick up on the physiological changes which take place as the headache is getting started. Studying the brain freeze type of headache hopefully will lend clues to other headache types as well.

And while you’re not likely to give up your favorite ice cream or ice filled drink, there are things you can do to avoid known causes of brain freeze. Keep cold foods from touching the rood of your mouth – let ice cream or cold drinks warm on your tongue first. You might also try quickly warming the roof (palate) of your mouth by pressing your balled-up tongue (or thumb) right against it – act quick enough and you might stop brain freeze in its tracks. Drinking something warm can also help as does making a mask with your hands to cover your mouth and nose and then breathe quickly as this brings up the temperature inside your mouth.

Combat Sinus Infections

• Gather information- Whenever you confront an illness related to sinuses; carefully observe your whole body. You can note down what you are actually feeling, for instance, whether you are having a headache, a fever, a slightly scratchy throat, a runny or a clogged nose. Apart from this, you must also take notice of how exactly your whole body reacts to the environment. If you are exposed to infectious and dirty substances, dust particles, fungi, bacteria, viruses, moulds and pet dander are a couple of things which can enter into your body leading to discomfort and pain. Besides, extreme weather changes could upset the normal functioning of your body. Weather it gets too cold or too hot, your body might get affected negatively and also trigger a throbbing infection called sinusitis. Fortunately, there is no dearth in the number of methods to cure sinus infections. Home cures and natural remedies are highly popular owing to their simplicity and cost-effectiveness. Medicines are only advisable to treat chronic bouts because of their severity. A surgery is for the extreme cases which can’t be cured with any other treatment.

• Take action- Though gathering information is important, it isn’t good enough to fight off the disease. You must use the information and details you have gathered to come up with an effective plan for curing the problem. In case of a mild sinusitis, you could explore natural cures requiring ingredients which are easily available. However, if the infection progresses to a severe condition, consulting a doctor for proper advice and prescription is essential. During the entire course of sickness, you must keep yourself attentive on how exactly your body copes with the symptoms as well as the surroundings. In this way, it would be easier for you to track down your progress plus make out if your plans need any changes.
