The first thing you need to understand is, what is it that is causing the migraine. Identifying triggers and staying away from them is the key.
Migraines can be caused by any of the following:

Gluten: Gluten allergy tends to create a lot of inflammation, people who suffer from migraines, could be because they are allergic to the gluten that is found in barley, oats, spelt or wheat.
Hormonal Imbalances: Some women are disposed towards getting migraines before their periods, this could be caused due to an imbalance in progesterone and estrogen, lack of progesterone and too much of estrogen could be the main cause. Stress, alcohol consumption, eating foods that are rich in flour and starch could lead you to getting migraines.
