Eat Often, Ache LessSimple habits can go far toward keeping migraines to a minimum. Here, a few everyday solutions.
Graze to stay on an even keelWhen we wait too long between meals, our blood sugar levels dip, which can trigger a migraine. Carry healthy snacks—a handful of unsalted nuts, organic dried fruit or vegetables with hummus—so you never get too depleted. Stay very well-hydrated, too.
Consider a supplementSome research suggests that supplementing your diet with vitamin B2, magnesium, coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) and/or the herbs feverfew and butterbur may help prevent migraines. Just remember to loop in your doctor if you decide to try any supplements, especially if you're pregnant or nursing.
