A diet high in complex carbohydrates (whole grains and starchy vegetables) and low in protein is recommended for headache sufferers.
Most of the time, a migraine is the body’s way of signalling that it is dehydrated. Drink PLENTY of water, fresh fruit and vegetable juices to rid the body of the toxins that are the main culprit of headaches.
