Why is it that everything you love to eat is bad for you? Especially if you’re a migraineur!

You may recall that after your first migraine attack, and subsequent visit to your local neurologist, you were given a l-o-o-o-o-o-ng list of foods to avoid. So long you found yourself wondering, “What can I eat?” Well that was my experience anyway :).

Of course every migraine suffer knows that MSG is a potential trigger. I say potential because we’re all different. For those of you that must avoid MSG, do you know how prevalent it is?

Here’s a list of “Potential Sources of MSG” from the book, Heal Your Headache The 1.2.3 Program, by David Buchholz, M.D. (love this book!!!)

Hydrolyzed Protein (including vegetable/soy/plant/rice protein)

Yeast Extract and Autolyzed Yeast

Natural Flavours/Flavourings

Broth, Stock or Bouillon

Soy Protein Concentrate/Isolate

Textured Protein

Whey Protein

Protein-Fortified Items

Malt Extract

Malted Barley

Maltodextrin

Carrageenan

Kombu (seaweed extract)

Sodium or Calcium Caseinate

Glutamic Acid

Gelatin

Fermented or Cultured Items

Ultra-Pasteurized Items

Enzyme-Modified Items

Note: “The term “hydrogenated” does not signify MSG. Also beware of similar-sounding items.” – Heal Your Headache The 1.2.3. Program, by Dr. David Buchholz, M.D.
