Migraine headaches usually involve sensitivity to light, severe pain, and feeling nauseous. If you've experienced migraine headaches then you know that they're not fun to deal with.
As detailed in the Body Reboot book, there are tons of health benefits from adopting a ketogenic lifestyle. One rather unexpected benefit from a ketogenic diet is that as the body gets used to the keto diet, sufferers of migraine headaches see an improvement in their symptoms.
Some studies suggest migraine headache symptoms often improve in people who follow ketogenic diets, and recently a study by the US National Library of Medicine reveals that.
During the study, the researchers assessed 52 subjects who suffered from migraines and were on the keto diet. At the same time, the study was done on 56 subjects who were on a standard diet as opposed to the keto diet.
Here's what the results revealed:
KD ameliorates headache and reduces drug consumption in migraineurs, while the SD is fully ineffective on migraine in a short term observation. Our findings support the role of KDs in migraine treatment, maybe modulated by KBs inhibitory effects on neural inflammation and cortical spreading depression , and enhancing brain mitochondrial metabolism . Ketogenic VLCD could find a transient role in antagonize the ponderal increase, a common side effect among prophylactic migraine treatments.
It's good to know that some studies suggest that migraine headache frequency and severity may get better for people who follow a ketogenic diet.
