A role of nutrients in the onset of migraine and other gastrointestinal symptoms (vomiting, nausea, diarrhoea), skin reactions (rush, atopic dermatitis, Quincke'a edema), respiratory symptoms (bronchial asthma, cough, allergic rhinitis, polyps, congestion of the nasal mucosa), motion system disorders (jointache and edema), gynecological disorders (chronic and recurrent adnexitis), and sleep disorders together with emotional tension and behavioral disturbances has been assessed in 17 patients with atopy. Migraine attacks have been produced most frequently by cow milk (in 10 out of 17 patients), cabbage, flour and eggs in 5 patients, preservatives, cottage and Swiss cheese, porcine meat in 4 patients, colorants and chocolate in 3 patients, beef, strawberries, lemons and butter in 2 patients. Other nutrients produced headache in single patients. Migraine and other symptoms have diminished after an individual elimination diet. Recurrence has been noted after each consumption of allergen except one female patient with EEG abnormalities. Immunoglobulins E have been involved in headache-producing mechanism in 3 patients.
