Food Allergies Can Be Causing Your Headaches
Greetings from Dr. Thorburn:
Many people with chronic headaches suffer from them for years. Whether you have migraine headaches, tension headaches, sinus headaches, or an undetermined form of headache, it is very possible that you are suffering from food allergy-induced inflammation. A headache is really a symptom of something else. It is obviously pain in the head, but the common factor is that headaches of all types usually involve inflammation. If the immune system reacts to one or more of the foods that you eat, then an inflammatory reaction is taking place that can potentially affect your head. Such reactions are far more common than many people realize.
The inflammation and thus the headache will resolve once the triggering food or foods are removed from the diet. Sometimes this is easier said than done, because the foods that we eat are often complicated combinations of numerous base foods. But once the problem is understood, the results can be dramatic.
Food triggers for headaches can include red wine, beer, chocolate, aged cheese, processed meats, nuts, bananas, artificial sweeteners, sauerkraut and more.
I have many years of experience in dealing with food allergies and resulting headaches. There are non-invasive ways of testing to see which foods may be causing your discomfort. If this is an issue for you, please call for an appointment so that we can get you on the path to health and wholeness.
At Thorburn Chiropractic and Wellness Center, we carry a whole food nutritional supplement line featuring specific products to help your body defend itself against allergies. For the month of September, we are offering 20% off all of our allergy products, including Allergic, Antronex, Congaplex, Immuplex and Thymex.
Until next time…
Yours in health,
