Headache (Migraine)
Migraine headaches are pounding or throbbing headaches that start suddenly, last for hours and usually occur with other symptoms such as nausea. The headaches usually occur between ages 10 and 30, often vanishing after age 50 or, in women after menopause.

Nutrition
Avoid food allergens. Some common allergens are alcohol (especially red wine), cheese, chocolate, citrus, cow’s milk, wheat, eggs, coffee, tea, beef, pork, corn, tomato, rye, yeast, shellfish, food additives (preservatives and coloring), and nitrates.
Avoid caffeine because it is a vasodilator. Essential fatty acids may be helpful. Supplementing with fish oil or flax seed oil may also be helpful.

Vitamins and Minerals
Magnesium (500 mg per day) increases muscle relaxation.
 Injection of one gram magnesium by a physician can terminate an acute migraine within minutes.
 Injection of folic acid (15 mg) in one study achieved total relief of acute headache within one hour in 60% of patients.
 Omega-3 oils (EPA and DHA, average dose 14 grams daily) greatly reduce intensity and frequency of migraines.
