12/18/13- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Saturday

I’ve had several friends who have had migraines lately.  It leads me to look into more information on the subject.  http://www.cincinnati.md/cincinnati-oh/relief-center/migraine.

One very helpful solution is to identify “triggers” for the migraine. If you suffer from the debilitating headache, which is characterized by nausea, sensitivity to light and noise and an intensely bad headache, monitor whether your catalysts are food/drink or environmental.

For many, the triggers can be red wine, alcohol, caffeine, chocolate, ripened cheese (Brie, Stilton, Camembert, Cheddar), sour cream, citrus fruits, bananas, raisons, aspartame, hot dogs, lima beans and salami.

Triggers can also be more environmental like changes in the seasons, weather, altitude, and barometric pressure.  Unfortunately, you can’t do much about the weather issues, other than to live somewhere that doesn’t affect your system as a catalyst for migraines.

For some people, flashing lights’, or computer screen glare can trigger migraines.

 If migraines become chronic, seek solutions from a doctor.  There are medications that can lessen the severity of the headache’s intensity or duration.  You should see your internal medicine doctor for a referral.

If you recognize the food/drink triggers, avoid them.  Try to keep your stress levels down, your sleep patterns level, and do what you can to keep your eating clean.  Take care.
