Most often you will be able to identify the type of foods or categories of foods that trigger your migraines, as well as those foods that do not impact your migraine condition. Working with a registered dietitian can help with food identification, label reading skills, dining out strategies and appropriate food substitutions for meal preparation while assuring that your nutritional needs are met. |
Be Smart about Nutritional Supplements for Migraines
Talk to your health-care provider to discover if any nutritional or dietary supplements would be appropriate to include in your treatment plan. Such treatment options should only be used under the guidance of the physician managing your care.
