New to the Migraine World: Complete Elimination Diet

Hello, I am new to the migraine world, I have been doing the complete migraine elimination diet from Migraine.com for 5 weeks now. I have made a few mistakes but wondered if anyone has more info on slow cooking, especially chicken stock, why does this affect foods?

    I’m curious – what is the basic premise of this diet? My new neurologist recommended I eliminate as much sugar and white flour/rice from my diet as possible and I have actually seen a reduction in migraines!! Not gone, but definitely a lot better. Something is helping and I think it’s a reduction of overall inflammation.

    Hi MaryLorraine, thank you for your question! The purpose of an elimination diet is to try to answer the question: what foods are triggering or problematic for me? The idea is to eliminate a lot of foods that are often problematic for people and then add back one thing at a time to determine which are problematic for you specifically. This article gives some further introductory information you may find of interest! https://migraine.com/blog/whats-elimination-diet-manage-one/ It is always recommended that one consult with a doctor before beginning so that it is done correctly and safely. I hope this offers you some clarification. Wishing you a gentle day. ~Allyson (Migraine.com team)
