Migraines Could Be Caused by Gut Bacteria, Study Suggests

New research shows that people with migraine headaches have higher levels of bacteria involved in processing nitrates typically found in processed meats, leafy vegetables and some wines, The Guardian reports. The article also points out that diet, stress and lack of sleep all contribute to migraine triggers.

With 1 billion people worldwide suffering from migraines more than once a month, this adds information for addressing both prevention and cure, especially since other studies have shown that deficiencies in vitamin D, riboflavin, CoQ10 and magnesium may also contribute to these debilitating headaches.

Migraine symptoms include the classic severe headache, but the condition is actually a neurological disorder that can include nausea, visual disturbances, dizziness, numbness in your extremities or face, and extreme sensitivity to light, sound, smell and touch.

Light sensitivity is an especially huge topic for people who get migraines: Many people become photosensitive during a migraine attack and are forced to lie down in a dark room to manage the pain. It’s interesting that some other very new research has shown that blue light wavelengths found in many digital devices and LED lights can also trigger migraines, while bright green light can lessen the pain.

At this time there are no light bulbs or sunglasses that increase your exposure to pure wavelength green light that are cost effective. However, there are sunglasses that will block blue light linked to increasing your migraine pain. You may also consider eliminating your exposure to your digital devices while you're in the middle of a migraine — and of course, eliminating all processed foods from diet, and eating whole, organic fresh foods instead.
