Eat your head: Did it happen to you that you ate a certain food and got a headache afterwards? Maybe even this has happened to you several times in your life, from the same specific food? Could it be that there are certain foods that cause us headaches? 103FM’s expert dietitian, Dr. Maya Roseman, Explained to her listeners that there are indeed such foods. So, what should you avoid?
“Almost every one of us experiences a headache of one intensity or another. For some of us it causes a decline in function and quality of life, and the pain appears without warning, so it is important to try to identify the cause,” Roseman began. “The things that can cause headaches are monthly hormonal changes in women, lack or excess of sleep, mental stress, and of course diet.”
“You should pay attention to chocolate, red wine and yellow cheese,” she continued. “All of these have a substance called tyramine, which is suspected to cause migraines, especially if you consume several of these foods together.”
“Monosodium glutamate, which is a flavor enhancer found in large amounts in Chinese food as well as salty snacks and some soup powders, can cause severe headaches in people who are sensitive to the substance. If you suffer from headaches, you should pay attention and read the list of ingredients of the products you consume.” She said more.
“Processed meats also contain preservatives called nitrites, which have been found to dilate blood vessels and can cause headaches in some people. In addition, those who are accustomed to drinking several cups of coffee a day but avoid caffeine on a certain day may feel headaches after a few hours,” she added. .
In conclusion, she said: “The right way to know if a particular food is causing you headaches, is to write down exactly what you eat and also when the headaches appear, and check if there is a connection between diet and the health phenomenon.”
