Could a New Diet Improve My Migraine Symptoms?

Migraines, unlike normal headaches, can be very intense, last for long periods of time, and tend to pulsate or affect one side of the head. They are also often associated with other side effects, including nausea, vomiting, and/or sensitivity to light.

In the podcast below, Dr. Luise Marino discusses what causes migraines, some common triggers (emotional, physical, hormonal, environmental, etc.) that may make migraines worse, as well as food elimination and migraine-related diets that can offer symptom control.
