What is Trigger Free?
Why Migraines Occur
Migraine attacks occur when your trigger load exceeds your threshold.
Triggers are everywhere. Things like hormones, stress, inconsistent sleep, dehydration, barometric pressure, bright lights, loud sounds, and yes, food. When you stack triggers on top of one another, your trigger load rises quickly. When it finally exceeds your threshold, an attack happens. The goal is to slow down the speed at which your trigger load rises by minimizing daily contact with triggers.
At Amia, we believe small changes can have a big impact. Replacing high-trigger snacks with Amia bars helps you consume fewer triggers daily and keeps your trigger load from rising.
A New Diet for People Living With Migraine
Migraine impacts 39 million Americans, yet no food brands exist to help support the management of it (until now).
Trigger Free is the new "Allergen-Free" but for people living with migraine. It signifies the removal of all common migraine triggers, including foods rich in tyramine, histamine, nitrates, nitrites, and sulfites.
The Trigger Free concept was Inspired by the book 'Heal Your Headache' by Neurologist Dr. David Buchholz. He worked with migraine patients for over 3 decades and helped them identify common triggers through elimination diets. He then published his findings and the common foods to avoid and has since helped countless migraine patients alleviate some of their migraine frequency.
Trigger Free Avoidance Foods
Common Trigger Foods
This list contains many of the common migraine triggers outlined in the 'Heal Your Headache' book by Neurologist Dr. David Buchholz. While that list doesn't cover everything, it highlights many of the common foods we will avoid in the production of our snack bars.
We always recommend consulting with a nutritionist or doctor if you plan to implement a full elimination diet on your own.
