Headaches are bad. Migraines are worse.

If you’ve suffered a migraine even once, you know what real pain is. It becomes near-impossible to carry on with your routine and be normal. Painkillers and a dark room may sound like what you really want, but even that does not always spell relief.

Okay, is there any good news at all?

Yes. You can prevent a migraine or at least minimize the chances of developing one. Here’s how:

  • Stay away from foods like cheese, chocolate, soya sauce, artificially colored food, yeast extracts, some citrus fruits and foods with MSG as these are known to trigger severe headaches 
  • Avoid  alcohol and red wine in particular
  • If you develop a migraine attack during your premenstrual phase, ask your gynecologist if you need to change your current pill. 
  • Sleep well. Get stress relief. 
  • Don’t skip your regular cup of tea or coffee as this is known to  trigger an attack
  • Avoid over-the-counter self-medication. Ask your doctor for the right painkiller 
  • Get your blood pressure checked 
  • Run away from bright or flickering lights – these can trigger an attack.

Stay healthy!
