Avoid common migraine triggers:
1- Barbequed meats, cheeses, chips, dips, pickles & olives, meat tenderizers, diet sodas – The chemicals found in these ingredients have all been associated with migraines
2- Loud Noises – Don’t get to close to the fireworks and cover ears if sensitive
3- Bright Lights – Consider wearing sunglasses when watching the fireworks
4- Alcohol – When combined with all of the above can bring on migraine in many people. So stick with water, fruit juice, coffee, or if available, beverages sweetened with stevia or erythritol.
What is best to eat?
Hopefully these hints will keep you independent of migraines on Independence Day!
