Have you been chasing migraine food triggers without success?
Did you know that your body’s immune system can have reactions to food that are delayed for hours or even days?
It’s true! No wonder they can be so difficult to pinpoint!
In the interview below, you’ll learn about the best food sensitivity testing for migraine headaches – the LRA test from ELISA/ACT®.
An LRA test measures all three types of delayed sensitivity reactions through lymphocyte activation and is much more comprehensive than standard IgG food sensitivity tests that you have done in the past and totally different from skin-prick food allergy testing that tests for acute allergies.

Very interesting article about migraine.Thanks for sharing with us.
I started eating differently about two months ago and haven’t had a migraine ever since.
Glad to hear that you find what works for you. Would you like to share what you have been eating lately that makes you free of migraines?
There’s a huge link between the two. Whenever I eat better for a certain amount of time, my headaches disappear!
I concur that food has something to do with migraines. Eating better definitely helps to reduce syptoms.
I did know know that food sensitivities can trigger migraine headaches. I should check this out. I know my migraine triggers, but there I days that I am confused about what brought about a migraine attack without those triggers that I am aware of. It must really have something to do with food and gut health.
Hi Eileen, feel free to contact us through this website if you need help.
I had no idea you could have a reaction to food DAYS later! How stressful and I see why people do the elimination diets to figure out the cause!
Wow, very informative article. I have mild migraines, and I would love to try this to know what makes it triggers.
If you try this, we would love to hear an update from you!
I’ve found that it’s much easier for me to stay away from foods that trigger acne or headaches, because those are just too difficult to deal with. Illuminating video!
Thanks Nkem. We are glad that you like the video. It is a lot harder to deal with headaches and migraines than- staying away from the certain foods that trigger them.
Indeed a very informative post. This is a great read and definitely a great help to those who suffer migraines.
Thanks Anosa. I am glad that this post helps those who has migraines.
I’m not prone to getting migraines. But I didn’t know that food can play a part- good info to know! Maybe the way I eat is the reason I don’t get them?
This is really great information to have! Such a useful blog post that I think everyone should read.
Thank you Emily.
Wow! I learned a lot regarding food sensitivities! This is so informative. I’ll share this to my friends.
Thank you for passing this post along to your friends. I hope it helps them.
