Which diet? I am looking to see if food might be a major factor in my migraines. But there doesn't seem to be an absolute agreement on what the ideal anti-migraine looks like. The two approaches that seem to offer the best hope are firstly the Stanton Protocol which seems similar to paleo style diet advocated by people like Josh Turknett and considers the problem to be related primarily to glucose and misfiring neurons. hormonesmatter.com/migraine...
The second is published by the Physicians Committee for responsible medicine pcrm.org/health/health-topi... which includes a list of "pain safe foods" and a top 10 of most likely migraine triggers.
Although there is some overlap they do differ in a few respects: the pcrm site says avoid meat, fish, dairy and eggs as they are some of the most reported triggers which clearly conflicts with the paleo diets widespread use of animal products. It also says that a few fruits are ok - cherries, pears for instance - but only what looks like berries on the picture relating to the Stanton Protocol - I don't have a list - but you have to get lots of minerals like magnesium, potassium, sodium and calcium to balance your electrolyte system.
For me eating meat and fish would be difficult as I've been vegetarian for years. If the PCRM site is correct (and as many other health sites have pointed out too) eating ANY animal food is not healthy for a number of reasons.
