Migraine Headaches

Migraine is a neurological condition which can present with a range of symptoms, most commonly a pulsating headache which varies in severity. There may also be nausea, vomiting and heightened sensitivity to bright lights and noise. A migraine episode may last a few hours to three days. In children migraine may present as abdominal pain.

Migraine treatment during an attack consists of conventional pharmaceutical headache remedies, applying warmth or coolness to the affected area of the head, silence, darkness and rest. Treatments for migraine prevention are less successful, and diet may only play a role in some recurrent sufferers. The principles of this migraine prevention diet are to minimise intake of low vasoactive amine foods (listed below) and to consume a high fibre diet, with plenty of fluid. Eliminating these foods has been shown to reduce incidence of migraines in some people.



Foods to avoid (possible migraine food triggers)

Game – pheasant, pigeon, partridge, venison, or any other 'hung' meat
Shellfish – shrimps, mussels, cockles, crab, prawns
Smoked fish – kippers, smoked mackerel, herring, haddock, etc
Pickled fish – rollmop herrings
Cheese – all types, inc. low fat, cottage cheese, quark
Yoghurt – all types, plain and flavoured
Fromage frais
Peas
Broad beans
Avocado pears
Bananas
Pineapple
Raspberries
Plums
Citrus fruits – lemons, oranges, grapefruits, limes, etc
Yeast and malt extracts – Oxo, Marmite, Bovril
Fruit cordials/squashes – all types, inc. reduced sugar, except blackcurrant
Colas – inc. 'diet' and 'Zero' varieties, caffeine-free varieties, Pepsi-Max
Strong tea, strong coffee, iced tea, green tea
Chocolate – milk, plain, white, cocoa
Salt – use sparingly
In addition stick to a healthy diet, avoiding processed foods and junk, and try to consume more high fibre foods drink 10-12 cups of fluid per day. High fibre foods include wholemeal products, fruit, vegetables, pulses, etc

The following example meal plan has been designed for someone who suffers from migraine headaches, and doesn't contain foods which are high in vasoactive amines. It's based on an average weight individual with a sedentary job for weight maintenance. Use this to give you an idea of what are healthy nutritious foods to include, but don't forget to vary your food choices and to drink plenty of water through the day.
