Headaches & Migraines- Heading Off Your Pain
45 million Americans suffer from frequent headaches and migraines according to the National Headache Foundation. Causes of headaches and migraines include stress, tension, hormone changes, food allergies or auto accident injuries. From tension headaches to sinus headaches to throbbing migraines, each headache type requires different treatment methods.
Did you know that migraines can be triggered by certain foods or drinks? Aged cheeses, deli meats or hot dogs with sodium nitrate, red wine, chocolate, corn syrup or caffeine have been linked to increasing the severity and length of migraines. Reducing or avoiding specific foods altogether may be successful for the treatment of migraines.
