Prevent Headaches with Food

Over 20 million Americans regularly experience headaches. I actually have one as I write this blog ;)  Here at Peas HQ, we not only like to use our food as fuel but for it's healing properties too. Here are some ways to avoid headaches using foods!

First, stay hydrated; dehydration can cause headaches.

Second, get enough magnesium. Research has found that people with migraines have low brain levels of magnesium and tend to have generally low magnesium levels. Getting enough magnesium also helps prevent heart disease, diabetes, loss of bone density, and colon cancer. Below is a list of foods naturally rich in magnesium.

Lastly, try avoiding the following foods which may lead to dull headaches
  • bananas
  • cheese
  • chicken
  • citrus
  • onions
  • peanut butter
  • sour cream
  • fresh baked yeast products

  • Prescription for Nutritional Healing by Phyllis A. Balch.
