How To Cure Migraines: Eat Right, Avoid The Wrong Foods
In a new study, scientists found out an association between the bacteria in people’s mouths and migraine. If you are suffering from a severe headache, it may be because of the bacteria in your mouth from the food you eat.
Isadora Baum, a certified health coach, stated to Bustle that she find that many people experience headaches that can go for long periods of time and affect several areas of life such as work or school, social life, self-esteem, and even stress reduction.
So, to cure and prevent migraines, here are the foods you must eat and the foods you must avoid.
For you not to get sick, you have to eat healthy foods and drink healthy beverages. To prevent a headache, it is advised to eat whole grain bread and rice. According to Michael Teixido, MD of the Association of Migraine Disorders, eating plain bread, such as whole grain, whole wheat, sourdough, rye, or pumpernickel, as well as bagels, are OK for migraines.
Foods that are rich in magnesium, calcium, complex carbohydrates and fiber have been shown to stop migraines. Green and orange vegetables are very powerful, too.
Fish, especially oily fish like Salmon and Tuna, is OK to eat to prevent migraines. According to Dr. Richard Jensen, Ph.D., a holistic nutritionist, in an interview with PR.com, vitamin D can help get rid of migraines, especially when combined with calcium and magnesium.
Avoid Wrong Foods
The study found that people with migraines harbored more bacteria in their mouths that had the ability to modify chemicals called nitrates, compared to people without migraines.
Nitrate is a substance such as a salt or ester of nitric acid. It is commonly added to processed meats like bacon, ham, sausages and hot dogs. They function as preservatives, helping to prevent the growth of harmful bacteria. They also add a salty flavor and improve the appearance of the processed meat.
Aside from the processed foods, avoid or lessen eating chocolates or any products with cocoa. Once eaten, it protects the nerve cells that cause migraine headaches.
Red wine and other alcohols may trigger a headache, too. The preservatives in red wine have been linked to migraine headaches, it causes increased blood flow to your brain and can also result in dehydration.
Food with so much Monosodium glutamate (MSG), which is found in soy sauce and as a food additive in many other foods, has been found to cause cramps, diarrhea, and a horrible headache.

Biochip Advances Enable Next-Generation Sequencing Technologies
Biochips are essentially tiny laboratories designed to function inside living organisms, and they are driving next-generation DNA sequencing technologies. This powerful combination is capable of solving unique and important biological problems, such as single-cell, rare-cell or rare-molecule analysis, which next-generation sequencing can't do on its own.
