1. Fruits, Vegetables, and Legumes
Fruits, vegetables, and legumes all contain plant estrogens that blunt the negative effects of the estrogen our bodies naturally make. This may be particularly helpful for women who get migraines with their periods—which may be due to a sudden drop in estrogen. The reasoning goes, the higher your overall estrogen level is to begin with, the farther it can fall during the drop. The fibre in these migraine fighting foods helps by removing excess estrogen from the body along with waste, so it’s not recycled back into your bloodstream.
Another major plus of these foods: They’re low in fat. When you eat less fat, your body makes less estrogen!
Aim for: Getting the recommended 7 to 10 daily servings of fruit and vegetables.
