26 Jun Migraines and gastrointestinal disorders
There is a growing body of evidence that migraines are associated with gastrointestinal disorders. People with gastrointestinal problems such as irritable bowel syndrome, celiac disease, inflammatory bowel syndrome and leaky gut syndrome have a higher prevalence of headaches. In addition these diseases are associated with an increased frequency of headaches. A possible solution may be pre and probiotic treatments. In conclusion, if you have migraines it makes sense to test for leaky gut syndrome and small intestinal bacterial overgrowth. If you test positive the pre and probiotic treatments might reduce the severity of your migraines.
