My Personal Experience about What to Avoid If You Get Migraine Headaches

My Personal Experience about What to Eat and What to Avoid If You Get Migraine Headaches

Migraine Triggers

It’s while I’m suffering from Migraines and daily headaches. It was about a week ago I had an episode twice in 2 days in a row, I was wondering why?
It was my first time experiencing 2 days in a row suffering from migraine headaches. It happened about 10:40 a.m. while I was at my stressful job. I took my medicine but as usual, it was getting worse and worse.
I started thinking about what I have eaten in the morning, that could trigger it, and I remembered I ate MILK and Cereal, 2 mornings, and at the same exact time, I experienced what I hate.

Migraine Trigger
Foods & Drinks That Can Cause Headaches

Milk and Dairy products especially old cheese that is high in CASEIN PROTEIN are the worst thing for me who suffers from daily headaches, actually, I love dairy products such as whole Milk, Cheese, Ice cream you name it.

I Never Dreamed A Dairy-Free Diet Was the Answer, I’m a little upset the I need to stay away from what I like but thank goodness that I found what I liked the most was killing me.

Here is what I found from Dr. Ronald Hoffman:

A group of phosphoproteins in milk are commonly referred to as “Casein.” Casein, which comprises 78.7 percent of all the protein in milk, is a major trigger of migraines and other types of headaches.
Many practitioners eliminate all sources of casein in the headache sufferer’s diet. To eliminate all casein one must avoid all dairy and the many foods in which it is found. It is commonly listed as sodium caseinate, calcium caseinate, or milk protein on many food labels. These three main ingredients are found in sports bars, sports drinks, packaged goods, and commercial tuna fish in a can.

Another common dietary headache trigger is tyramine. Tyramine is a phenolic amine found in various foods and beverages. The following list depicts tyramine sources that should be avoided.

Cheeses: All aged and mature cheeses. Because it is impossible to know the exact tyramine content, all cheeses should be avoided including but not limited to cheddar, Swiss, blue cheese, mozzarella, Parmesan, Romano, cheese spreads, cheese casseroles, or any foods made with cheese.

Yeast, brewer’s, and extracts: This group includes brewer’s yeast, extracts such as marmite and fresh homemade yeast-leavened bread; yeast found in prepared foods, soups, canned foods, and frozen foods should be checked for the addition of yeast abstracts and should be avoided.

Meats/fish: Pork and all smoked, aged, pickled, fermented, or marinated meats must be avoided including but not limited to pickled fish, pickled herring, meat extracts, livers, dry sausages, or prepared meats such as salami, bologna, pepperoni, frankfurters, bacon, bologna, liverwurst, and ham.

Also avoid Chocolate, over-ripe bananas, citrus fruits (oranges and grapefruit), sauerkraut, broad fava beans, Italian beans, tofu, soy sauce, and miso soup.

Beverages: Coffee, tea, cocoa, beer, ales (domestic and imported), wines (especially Chianti), vermouth, whiskey, and liqueurs such as Drambuie and Chartreuse. Non-alcoholic varieties of beers and wines also should be avoided.

Supplements to avoid: Yeast vitamin supplements, L-tyrosine, NADH.

The ubiquitous flavor enhancer MSG must be avoided. Monosodium glutamate is directly associated with the onset of headaches in many people. According to George Schwartz, M.D., MSG is found in many common grocery items and is usually hidden in the ingredient label. The following list should help you avoid MSG and illustrate the fact that this substance is not only found in Chinese food.

Definite sources of MSG: Hydrolyzed protein, sodium caseinate or calcium caseinate, autolyzed yeast or yeast extract, gelatin.

Possible sources of MSG: Textured protein; carrageenan; vegetable gum seasonings; spices; flavorings; natural flavorings; flavorings of chicken, beef or pork; smoke flavorings; bouillon; broth or stock; barley malt; malt extract; malt flavoring; whey protein; whey protein isolate; soy protein isolate or concentrate; soy sauce or extract.
