How Migraines Develop
Migraines are a chronic state of pain that produce a high level of sensitivity from lights, sounds or smells. Migraines and headaches are caused by an impairment of blood circulation to the brain. This is due to chronic stress which causes the arteries that feed nutrients and oxygen to the brain to dilate. This leads to a decreased amount of nutrients and oxygen reaching the neurons in the brain, creating a misbalance in the production of inhibitory neurotransmitter in the region of the brain (the temporal lobe) that processes light, sound, smell and learning.
Neurotransmitter misbalance also affects the ability to connect nerve fibers and neuron fibers, resulting in an inability to control pain. Depression and anxiety are recognized as primary causes of migraines. Lack of sleep and use of certain drugs also initiate migraines. Of all the factors however, chronic stress is the most culpable due to inflammation that occurs in the neck when we’re stressed. The inflammation applies pressure and compression on the spine, constricting the flow of spinal fluid. It also constructs the flow of serotonin, an important inhibitory neurotransmitter that regulates mood, sleep, appetite, memory, learning, body temperature and sexual desire.

Nutrition and migraines
Nutrition needs to be addressed in order to heal from migraines. A lack of good nutrition in the body creates stress which builds tension in the body. When we’re not eating healthily the brain won’t receive the nutrients it needs. This is one factor that leads to headaches and migraines. Stress however, is the main culprit for migraines. Chronic stress leaves the body weakened and in need of healing. Our Migraines Nutritional Guide will help assist you in knowing what foods will help nourish the brain and heal from damage caused by stress and migraines.
