    I Followed a Migraine Elimination Diet: Here’s What Happened

    What is a Migraine Elimination Diet? Diet affects the frequency and severity of migraine symptoms in some people.

    Diet Controversy: When It’s Time to Stop the Migraine Diet (and what to do next)

We see some people staying on an elimination diet far past the time it should have helped. We all like the idea of something so easily controlled (food and drink) being a factor in managing migraine and it can be hard to let go of the control we felt we had...even if it didn't improve our migraine.
