Painkillers, analgesics, and sometimes triptans … Treatments against migraine are still quite limited. Have you taken a look at your diet? In fact, in one in five cases, it would be a trigger for migraine.
The LIFE diet
British researchers have implemented a diet called “Life” (Low Inflammatory Foods Everyday) aimed at reducing inflammatory-type foods and favoring a more plant-based diet. And the stars of this new diet would be green vegetables! Rich in beta-carotene, green vegetables have many antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, which would help reduce headaches considerably.
The goal: to consume a minimum of 140 grams of green vegetables each day in order to observe positive effects. Easy to integrate into your daily diet, there is also a wide variety. Opt instead for broccoli, kale, spinach or watercress.
