Remembering migraine triggers is important for pain relief.
Do you ever wonder how many migraine sufferers take preventives that have been prescribed for their migraines and never give a thought to what may be triggering their migraines? Several I'd say. It's a known fact that migraine preventive medicine works its best when all avoidable headache causes are observed and eliminated.
Somewhere above the ear is the hypothalamus. It's believed that the hypothalamus (big word isn't it?), is the most obvious candidate for the migraine control center. It receives a constant flow of what can be your migraine triggers.
Stress, hormones, dietary triggers, bright lights, strong odors, and sleep disturbance end up here.

Do you see the connection with these friends, and the hypothalamus?

It's hard to prevent a migraine without learning all triggers, and then keeping a diary (print) to keep watch what was eat, drink, and whatever happened from several hours to a day of so before the attack.
More natural approaches to reduce migraines.
These more natural approaches may take several weeks or more to feel their full effects. If you take migraine preventive medicine let the doctor know what you plan to do.
