“…I’d advise you to avoid as many processed foods as possible, as they contain a variety of food colorings, flavors, preservatives, and other additives that might promote headaches and migraines, in addition to other food allergy symptoms. Questions that can help you determine whether or not you might have a food sensitivity or allergy include: ..

“..There is still marked debate over the cause of migraines. Regardless of the cause, over 85% of migraines can be prevented naturally. Here’s how!

B) 200 mg of magnesium at night.

However, there was no control group in this study, so we can’t be sure how much of the benefit was due to the placebo effect. If it gets rid of your headache, though, does it matter?..
Decline that drink.
Alcohol is a known headache trigger. Just half an hour after that first sip of wine, you could wind up with a throbbing noggin.
Cut out any food triggers.
Some foods can provoke headaches, including citrus fruits, chocolate, dairy, and foods that contain tyramine, like aged cheese and cured meats. So can some food additives, including sodium chloride, sodium nitrate, monosodium glutamate, and the sweetener aspartame.
Improve your posture.
If you sit in front of a computer all day, eye and neck strain can lead to headaches. Have an ergonomics
Get a good night’s sleep.
Insomnia or restless sleep can land you with a headache the next day.
Swallow fish oil supplements.
Because inflammation contributes to headaches and fish oil counters inflammation, try taking 3 grams fish oil a day to relieve frequent headaches. It’s good for your heart and the rest of your body too.

“…Over the years, I sought medical treatments, consulting with several different physicians and specialists to no avail. Even the brain scans and hormone and allergy testing were inconclusive and simply resulted in the same diagnosis: classic migraines. I was given various painkillers to minimize the pain of the headache, but even if I could hold down the medication without vomiting (which was not usually the case), the painkillers had very little impact. …
…Ever since that day in 1975, my response to an aura is very simple. No matter what time of the day or night, I stare through the spot-blindness, take no medication, and make no attempt to sleep until after the temporary blindness disappears. The aura still occurs three or four times a year—and has done so consistently over the past thirty-five years—but by following my simple plan I have not experienced a single migraine headache.
I was effectively cured in 1975 of a very debilitating illness. I attribute this cure to God. Being able to avoid such pain has not only made me happier but has also made me more productive and successful in both my business and personal life…”
