But today we begin with dr barnard migraines and the foods that can help. Let's talk about headaches here on the exam room. Podcast brought to you by the physicians committee and not just any headache. We're about the mother of all headaches. Today we are going to be talking about migraine headaches. What exactly they are. And then how your diet may be affecting whether or not your head is pounding or not and so. We have a gentleman with us here today. Who knows all about this matter. Fact did a comprehensive study on this very topic not too terribly long ago and with that we welcome. Dr neil barr back to the exam room. Thank you so very much for being here sir. Hijacked great to be with you. Let's start with the surface level question. What is a migraine. And how does it compare to those day to day headaches that we all get great question. A migraine is not just a bad headache. untypical tension headache. That a lot of folks get is a dull ache lasts an hour or two. It's gone that's of beds. That's about it now. it can be intense. But the differentiates a migraine is that migraines are usually one-sided. They're often pounding and throbbing with your pulse. And along with it. You get lots of other things to. You're really sensitive to lights and sounds and sometimes you'll feel sick. You might even actually throw up. So it's it's a whole physical thing. as opposed to just Attention headache some people will get an aura beforehand. Not everybody but sometimes you'll see changes in your vision. That will warn you that the migraine is about to hit and we talk a lot about chronic illness here on the show. Is there any research showing whether or not migraines can be genetic at all they can be and they can also strike at any time of life. Unlike so many conditions where you've got to kind of be middle aged for to happen You'll see them in kids. And i have to tell you check. There is nothing sadder than a kid. Who's got a migraine because they last a long time. They can last overnight the next day kids aren't in school They're just waiting in the dark and what they're hoping for is that they will fall asleep. Sometimes the sleep will arrest the migraine and they can function again but there are kids who have them a few times a week and it can be just really debilitating. I remember dr bernard. At a young age there was a member of my family who suffered just tremendously with migraine headaches. And they actually had a shot that they would give themselves. They kept it in the refrigerator. I guess it was. It was a paint shot. I was pretty young at that time but they would literally have to go to their bedroom. Give themselves the shot and just lay down. And that was it for the day. They were just crippled It seemed and i'm assuming the shot because really no amount of tylenol is going to help these things. Well that's another problem with migraines is that you take an aspirin taken a tylenol. Only taking ibuprofen and a whole lot of nothing happens And often when people go to the emergency room with their headache the interns and residents that the ones who are kind of new to medical practice treat them with skepticism because they read a magazine somewhere that said that people will feign migraines in order to get narcotics so the poor headaches suffer is waiting into the Mercer waiting room getting no help at all being looked at with suspicion when they just want this summer in their head to stop and this is a fairly common condition it is it is very very common and for some people it occurs at certain times in their lives For women during the reproductive years they will sometimes occur premenstrual That's the bad news but the good news is that this gives us clues as to what we can do about it and so researchers have looked at. what are the triggers. It can't be the time of the month but it can also be what you ate and so once people start realizing that they started putting it to the test including our team and finding that some people can actually become totally free of their migrates. Let's talk about that diet component. Because that really does not get talked about all that often when it comes to migraine headaches you think about food. You think about bellyache. She'd think about some of the other conditions we talk about on the show but rarely do you associate that with the migraine nonetheless. You and a team of researchers. I believe it was in two thousand and fourteen looked at this specifically. What all did you discover. Yes that's exactly right on. The history of this really started with not exactly food that people making their meals but certain additions like ginger. Ginger seems to reduce migraines a little bit In other words if you have ginger in your food's it makes him less common. And then there's there's an herb called fever few. It's spelled just like it sounds. It's an old old old part of of kind of folk medicine. It was used to reduce fever. Fever few But researchers found that it does indeed help produce migrants. You don't take it when you've got the migraine. You take daily time and it makes migraines less likely to happen so that was all good but the the the power that really came came up is foods themselves and that's what we did. We brought in forty two people. They all had migraines. They'll have these pounding headaches And we asked half of them to do nothing for the time being. We gave them actually a placebo but the others were made a diet change and what we did was. We eliminated the problem foods. I'm gonna tell you what they are. And what we noticed is that the migraines dramatically reduced and i will never forget. We had a law student who is one of the research subjects and she was saying how she would be at in the law library and she'd be studying reading and then migraine with yet and that was it was if you could just unplug her brain and the day was shot after that you can do anything After began our study. She contacted me years later. And said you know what haven't had a migrants so The the key here is to know the foods to avoid and to avoid them. And there's a certain way that you can identify which foods really matter for you. And what is that way is it. Just kind of a matter of error is different for everyone or is there a really just kind of a specific group of foods that are i guess common triggers. You have to go through a kind of systematically because you wanna to see what your trigger food is and you might have more than one so what we did in this study and i would encourage other migraine sufferers to to do is four weeks during this four week period. No animal products at all when you do that. You're eliminating dairy which is at the top of just everybody's migraine list by the way it does not have to be fermented dairy. I it doesn't have to be an aged cheese. Even skim milk for some people will trigger their migrants so vegan diet has no dairy got no meat as no eggs. Those are common triggers if that knocks out your migraine your migrants. You're done. there's nothing else to do. But after four weeks if you still have some migraines then phase two is to eliminate a dozen additional foods that for some people are migraine triggers. Okay so here's my list of dozen And some.

Today today four weeks forty two people neil barr an hour four week one a dozen dozen this summer two phase two two thousand and fourteen years later Mercer dr one-sided next day bernard
