12 Foods That Might Help Migraines
Hey, it's worth a shot. If you're someone who suffers from migraines, you're probably willing to do just about anything to make them go away. A migraine isn't just a headache you can deal with while waiting for painkillers to kick in. The American Migraine Foundation calls migraines a disabling neurological disease, and notes the pain can be "unbearable." The tricky thing about migraines is that often there is no one specific cause, meaning it can be difficult to actually prevent them. What you can (and should!) do is focus on figuring out how to treat them when they do occur, and that's where food comes in. While there is certainly no promise that eating particular foods will magically make a migraine disappear, there is some evidence that some foods can help prevent—and maybe even lessen the severity of—a migraine. Now, you definitely shouldn't toss your migraine medication to focus on eating the following foods. When figuring out how to treat a migraine, you should always talk to your doctor to figure out what works for you. But trying to incorporate some of these foods into your diet just might help. It's also important to remember that while these foods might help some people, they won't help everyone (remember when we said migraines are tricky? We weren't kidding). Still, it's worth trying these foods, and honestly? It doesn't help that they're delicious.
