The food you eat is directly linked to your health. For many patients who suffer from headaches and dizziness, taking a closer look at diet can help greatly in identifying the causes of migraines.
Migraines & Dizziness
As anyone who has suffered from a migraine can attest, migraines are painful and persistent. They are often tied to dizziness as well. For patients with recurring painful headaches and dizziness, testing for food triggers can be very helpful. At the Neurovisual Center of New York, we work with patients to identify the causes of migraines and dizziness that often affect visual acuity and cause eye strain.
Migraines are chronic headaches that generally run in a family and can progressively get worse over time. Before patients come to us, they have often tried many different treatments to alleviate the pain from migraines – without success. Being able to identify the cause of your migraine is satisfying and empowering because you can treat the root cause and stop using medications that often have adverse side effects. You can move on with your life.
Using Epigenetics to Control Migraines
For every person, individual health history, genetics, and biochemistry affect that person’s health and reaction to stress and the environment. While some epigenetic programming happens at birth, the remainder develops over time and is affected by your behavior and choices ranging from diet and sleep to lifestyle, exercise, and stress exposure. Understanding your personal epigenetic history can help your doctor identify and treat migraines, as well as eye conditions such as macular degeneration. You will also be better prepared and able to stay healthier and improve your quality of life.
Identifying Food Triggers
A complete elimination diet – often with a food diary to pinpoint the food source that is causing a migraine – can be frustrating and also time-consuming. It is often very difficult to determine what foods may be triggering a migraine. We can test patients to see if they have particular food triggers without the additional stress and hassle of an elimination diet.
