Are you plagued by headaches and migraine?

Are you plagued by headaches and migraine? Your diet may have something to do with that. Skipping your morning cup of coffee, for instance, may be problematic as, according to Dr Vincent Martin of University of Cincinnati, caffeine withdrawal is "one of the most important triggers for headache”. Other common causes include drinking too much alcohol and eating processed foods high in nitrites or monosodium glutamate. If you just can’t shake your headache problem, make an appointment with a nutritionist to discuss which of your eating habits may be responsible.
