Diet Helps Squash Migraines

Glutamate Inhibition

Glutamate is found in both epilepsy and migraine patients. Medications that work in epilepsy (anti-seizure drugs) also block glutamate production. These drugs have been used to treat migraines as well. Since about 500 BC, ketones have worked to help prevent seizures, but the ketogenic diet has only been popular for the last century.

I have said many times that processed foods are bad for you, especially if you suffer with migraine. “Food-like products” are filled with preservatives, chemicals, and other triggers that could be affecting your migraine symptoms. Any diet that removes those processed foods, including the ketogenic diet, would be a good step to controlling migraine symptoms.

Most men and women with colds simply choose to take some over-the-counter medication, rest as much as possible, and wait out the illness. There are specific medications, in fact, that are designed to attack and relieve sinus pressure.

People may also suffer from migraines, which are often mysterious in origin. Sometimes they come on suddenly, while other times they begin slowly and then rise to a thundering crescendo. People who suffer from regular migraines are often instructed to find a dark room in which to rest. A damp cloth may help as well. Though medical professionals suggest that altering one’s diet may decrease the frequency of some migraines, everyone is ultimately different in how they will react.

Especially sensitive people may also experience headaches that arise whenever the
