So I have been following the ‘Heal your Headache’ diet quite strictly for the past 6 weeks. And before that I didn’t drink or eat any caffeine, chocolate or alcohol for months. And I don’t notice a real difference yet.
What does that mean? Is food a minor issue for me, or may be for most migraineurs ? After how much time should I feel really better with the diet ? What is your experience with food and how can you know for sure that something is a trigger ??
(I have no problem sticking to the diet when it comes to caffeine/alcohol/msg/aged cheeses and a lot of the other foods that might be triggers. But in the future I hope to be able to eat nuts again, and use a little lemon in my food for example. And since I hardly eat any meat or sugar or processed food, I would like to have a little more variation than I have now ).
