Headaches And Migraine Causes


Migraines Causes - Are Allergies To Blame?If you suffer from headaches or migraines your life can be a misery can’t it? The pain can be excrutiating and there doesn’t appear to be anyone coming up with any cure that doesn’t involve taking drugs……….until now! Let us look at, what is probably a totally new concept to you, in what headaches and migraines causes are.

Migraines and headaches can be caused by allergies

According to Dr Devi Nambudripad, 90-95% of the 1,500 cases of migraine headaches that she treated over a three year period, recovered through clearing allergies alone!

Although a small percentage of migraine headaches can be caused by deficiencies, injuries and emotional disturbances, I have to agree with Dr Devi that most are caused by allergies. Migraines are an allergy affecting the nervous system because they are caused by an allergy of the brain tissue.

Migraines and headaches affect millions of people all over the world but in most cases they are due to allergies to something ingested, inhaled or contacted.

Migraines and headaches caused by food allergies?

Several years ago, whilst I was studying microscopy and before I began my work with allergies, I read a book called, “The PH Diet” by Dr Robert Young. It is based on the principle that we should be eating an alkaline diet to stay healthy and live longer. At the time my brother-in-law was suffering the most horrendous headaches. He was on the strongest pain killers that the doctor could prescribe. My brother-in-law is a bit of a triathlon junkie, so you can imagine how difficult it was for him to live with these headaches.

I told him about Dr Young’s book and so he bought it and followed the diet. The headaches stopped! Now he would have sworn that his headaches were due to a problem he was having with a disc in his spine and his doctor was convinced this was the cause. Could it have been food allergies?

So why is there a period of wellness between attacks?

I think there are two reasons this could be:

1.  We are addicted to the things we are allergic to. Take food for example, as long as the food that we are allergic to is in our system we will probably feel better. If we don’t have it in our system for any length of time we go into withdrawal and start to have symptoms. In this case headache or migraine. This could also happen if we are not inhaling something that we are used to or in contact with something or someone that we are used to.

2. When you get a migraine headache the brain releases an antidote that is a remedy for the allergen that is causing the pain. The secretion neutralises the toxin and the brain produces some more which stays in the body for a longer period. Now if the person eats or uses the offending toxic product the remaining secretion might neutralize it to prevent a further attack.

Therefore there is a period of time that you could eat the most common foods such as milk, wheat, eggs, chocolate etc without producing migraine or headache symptoms.

Is there an alternative treatment for migraines and headaches?


In most cases change in diet would probably help. You could try a diet like the one my brother-in-law did but it is very difficult for most people to do.

Or you could take a look at The Allergy Kit. This is a DIY holistic allergy treatment that I recommend.
