  • A Paleo diet was defined as no grains, bread or pasta, and no pasteurized dairy, but does include lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, some nuts and oils along with wild caught fish, organic poultry and grass-fed lean meats
  • Over 150 studies have looked into the connection between food allergies and migraines. Some of the top migraine-inducing foods identified include wheat, cow’s milk, grain cereals, sugar, yeast, corn, citrus and eggs
  • Certain food additives, such as aspartame and MSG, are also notorious for causing headaches and triggering migraines
