Understanding your headache triggers can help you avoid foods and situations that cause your migraines. Keep a headache diary to help identify the source or trigger of your symptoms. Then modify your environment or habits to avoid future headaches.

Other tips for preventing migraines include:

  • Avoid smoking

  • Avoid alcohol

  • Avoid artificial sweeteners and other known food-related triggers

  • Get regular exercise

  • Get plenty of sleep each night

  • Learn to relax and reduce stress -- some patients have found that biofeedback and self-hypnosis helps reduce the number of migraine attacks
