Works for everyone: a very low-fat diet
According to the Headache Center of Atlanta, migraines are a health condition triggered by stress (80 per cent of adults), hormones (65 per cent), odours (44 per cent), lights (38 per cent), smoke (36 per cent), heat (30 per cent), food (27 per cent), and other disruptions.
In an unrelated study, participants followed an extremely low-fat diet (where less than 10-15 per cent of their calories came from fat each day) for 12 weeks. At the end, nearly all reported having at least 40 per cent fewer headaches. When they did experience pain, it was 66 per cent less severe, and the migraines were about 70 per cent shorter.
