Migraine Diet & NutritionDr. Robert Bonakdar's guide
Diet vs Nutrition
Diet and nutrition can be confusing. As soon as we see a headline telling us to make sure we eat breakfast, we see another one telling us to fast. As soon as we hear about the benefit of certain grains, we hear another story about the need to restrict them and go grain-free. It can make anyone, including nutrition experts, scratch their head. To make things simple, let's start with some basic definitions:
Diet is the kind and amount of food eaten regularly.
Nutrition is the process of selecting, consuming and utilizing food substances that shape our overall wellbeing. Good nutrition is a combination of diet and other important lifestyle approaches that maximize our wellbeing. These approaches include:
- Eating meals regularly and staying well hydrated.
- Consuming high quality foods & supplements.
- Exercising regularly.
- Managing stress.

When people talk to me about nutrition and migraines, I'm excited because it shows interest in using a powerful technique to manage migraines that is often overlooked. Creating a personalized migraine nutrition approach is a two-step process:
- Optimize Your Nutrition which will close nutritional deficiencies, manage inflammation, support gut health and metabolism while avoiding triggers and accommodating any special health situation.
- Address Potential Migraine Triggers to pave the road to living your best life.
