A very good way of sorting out what food and drinks may be adversely affecting you is to give your body a good "spring clean".This detoxifies your body,allowing you to start with a clean slate and identify anything that causes problems as you reintroduce it.
Giving your body a thorough spring clean will generally help to boost your energy levels, as well as giving your internal organs time to rest and rejuvenate themselves.Try going on a two or three week detoxification diet at first(see content below).Once your body is clear and balanced,it will become much easier to tell which foods and drinks might be causing your migraines;the effects on your body will be more obvious if you decide to reintroduce them.The "trigger" foods are even likely to start losing their appeal.
A vitally important part of your detox programme is to drink at least 2 litres a day.This will have the effect of helping to flush out your system.
Your mind may tell you how much you would love to eat that huge bar of chocolate,but you will find eating it makes you feel ill or sluggish, and this way of feeling will become a guide for you not to have it the next time.To begin with,however,it is strongly advisable to refrain from any of the trigger foods while seeking to alleviate your headaches and migraines.You should only resume them,now and again,once you truly feel that your body has had a rest and has been brought back into balance.
