The 4th of July is fun for most everyone. But certain aspects of what we do on the 4th can bring on a migraine attack.

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?

Burgers without tenderizers, prepared with basic seasonings like salt and pepper. grilled chicken with vegetables, and fruit salads are healthier substitutes….don’t forget to drink plenty of water.

Don’t for get that Akeso Health Sciences, fast acting migraine formula, MigreLief-NOW is great to keep on hand during emergencies.  Adults should take 2-4 capsules at the first sign of distress (children age 2-11 take 1/2 the adult dose) and enjoy your holiday.

Hopefully these hints will keep you independent of migraines on Independence Day!

Sweetner Sucralose/Splenda – Oh No! Not Another Migraine Trigger

June 18th, 2011

Spenda imageA case report about a woman whose migraines were being triggered by the artificial sweetner  Sucralose/Splenda was published by the Albert  Einstein School of Medicine, dept. of  neurology.

When the physicians withdrew the sucralose her migraines stopped and when they reintroduced it, they  began again.

If you look carefully at the labels of low calorie drinks and foods you will find sucralose in many of them.  It is not yet clear if sucralose serves as a trigger for lots of migraine sufferers.  Only time will tell.

Interestingly, this woman also reported menstrual migraines that were caused by her birth control pills. When the physicians switched from a fixed estrogen birth control medicine to a triphasic, her menstrual migraines improved significantly.

If you are on birth control pills and feel that they may be contributing to your migraine headaches, speak to your doctor about possibly switching to a different one.
