Headaches are such a pain! Literally and figuratively. Whether they are frequent or occasional, they can really put the brakes on daily living. Many people seek help from their doctors with little success. After a time and not being able to help their patient, their doctor will eventually refer them to a neurologist. A few patients get resolution at this level, but it’s rare. A lot of patients leave a long series of doctor appointments frustrated after being told their pain is “all in their head”.

At A to Zinc Nutrition, we recognize many foods play a role in headache management. You probably already heard from your doctors to take out the following: caffeine, artificial sweeteners, and high histamine foods. Sometimes that’s enough but for most people they need a diet more specific than that. We use the MRT® (Mediator Release Test) to help identify the foods that are causing you inflammation. It measures your immune response to 140 foods and 30 chemicals. Working with a Certified LEAP Therapist will help you identify the foods to eat, the foods to avoid, and the strategies to make your eating plan successful. Most patients feel 25-75% better in as little as 14 days just by eating their least inflammatory foods.
