Migraines affect 18% of all women and 6% of all men and can result from a combination of genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors. Stress, hormones, and other things like consuming certain foods can trigger a migraine and affect migraine frequency and recurrence. Some common migraine food triggers include alcohol, cured meats, chocolate, and aged cheese among others. In addition to identifying and eliminating your migraine food triggers, you can also add foods to your diet to help reduce the risk of a migraine, such as whole grains, healthy fats like fish and foods with low sodium.
