Chairi Malformation

I''m diagnosed with Chairi Malformation which is a serious neurological condition, Chiari Malformation occurs when the cerebellum found in the bottom portion of the brain, falls through the base of the skull and squeezes down onto the spinal cord. The pressure causes symptoms such as headaches, balance problems and fullness in the ears.

What is the best food for this?
