There are many other foods that may act as triggers for individuals. We have the ability to order specialized labs that look for food sensitivities to cooked and uncooked food.  Having these results allows us to identify any foods causing inflammation. It is not uncommon for a food that we would consider perfectly healthy to trigger headaches due to your bodies response to the food.

The interaction between diet and headache treatments can be complex. For this reason, Van Family Chiropractic & Wellness Center does a thorough history with each of our patients to identify the true cause of their headaches.

Diet is a culprit that is not often thought of.
The foods we eat have the ability to provide our body with essential vitamins, minerals, and nutrients. There is a dark side to food that is equally as important. If you are consuming food that causes inflammation, then it can be the trigger to your headache. Inflammation from food can come from the type of food or decreased ability to breakdown the food. This is especially true in those with gut disorders, such as celiac, Crohn’s, or ulcerative colitis. Limiting these foods can be an effective headache treatment.
