If you have ever had or have migraines you know, they are painful sometimes even can be disabling. They are changes in chemicals and blood vessels in the brain, which send pain signals leading to the head. Often can lead to feeling of nausea, and vomiting, I often find when I have one there are sensitivities to light, noise, and smell.
I have been a sufferer of migraines from childhood. Knowing how awful they are, and I spent too many nights, going into the darkest room around, pray it would go away and hope to fall asleep! As I grew older working at a dental clinic in the Air Force, I found new smells and certain foods that would trigger these headaches. Every Monday or a long period away from work without fail, BOOM there would be a headache. After countless unsuccessful attempts to battle them on my own, it was when I started working with Fadi Malouf and David Baldovin we took them on with nutrition as my key to helping prevent and alleviate.
With the guidance of the Body By Fadi’s Team, I have learned certain foods can help prevent, alleviate, or reduce the severity of the migraine.

Some foods such as spinach or other dark leafy vegetables are high in magnesium that will help alleviate migraines. Common causes like stress, alcohol intake, and menstruation in women absorb magnesium in the body. Eating such vegetables like spinach or kale will help restore levels. Currently learning how to create delicious smoothies with these and other ingredients below, thanks to Coach Scott Black’s book Living On High Speed.
Ginger – I found taking ginger will help with an upset stomach that may often come with a migraine.
Peppermint- I read a study done back in 1966 showed a solution containing 10% peppermint essential oil was as effective as 1,000mg of acetaminophen (the ingredient in medicine like Tylenol) I drank Peppermint Tea and also at times just massaged peppermint essential oil onto my temples.
Fish – Help reduce the frequency and severity of the migraine, Omega-3 Fatty Acids, as well act as an anti-inflammatory. Fish such as tuna, salmon, mackerel and trout are excellent sources of Omega-3 Fatty Acid.
Since taking they’re advise with proper nutrition, it helped a ton. Going from weekly on sets to just about gone. And now knowing what I know thanks to their help I can tackle them right at the start. Enjoying my working out routines and not spending my precious time in the dark, silent world.
