KNOW YOUR TRIGGERS
The first part is understanding your body. There will be certain things in your life that trigger your migraine attacks. It might be stress, too much coffee, dairy products or chocolate. Actually these would be the main causes for most types of migraines so let's look at migraine prevention based on each of these 4 triggers.

Migraines caused by stress
You need to remove or reduce the stress in as much as you can. That's sometimes easier said than done. If you can't eliminate the cause of the stress then you need to integrate relaxation techniques such as meditation and deep breathing into your life.

Migraines caused by caffeine
Cut out the coffee. Swap over to tea instead. Tea still contains a certain amount of caffeine so if you find that you still experience migraines from that then you can always use soy coffee instead. Caffeine related migraines are self inflicted. The power to prevent is in your hands.

Migraines caused by dairy products
Again the rememedy is straight forward. Reduce the amount of dairy products you consume (especially cheese) and where possible replace them entirely with their soya counterparts.

Migraines caused by chocolate
Don't eat so much chocolate. If you have to have chocolate then try eating dark chocolate instead of plain dairy. I've found that his does help a little bit.

UNDERSTANDING And LIFESTYLE CHANGE
True migraine prevention is a change in lifestyle and understanding. It's also vitally important that you become familiar with exactly how you feel at the very start of a migraine attack when your trigger kicks in. The more you understand the emotional, psychological and physical changes that occur within you during an attack the better you can work towards stopping them happening.

It comes down to this. Your migraines are caused by triggers. To really, really prevent a migraine attack you need to know your triggers and you need to minimize or eliminate them as much as you can and as often as you can.
