Maintaining a healthy diet is an important way to lower your risk of chronic (long lasting) disease and stay healthy. Research shows eating an unhealthful diet is one of three main factors that raise your risk of getting a chronic disease. Changing your diet is shown to help people with migraine headaches and multiple sclerosis.
Many diets can help improve your health. These include:
- Diets that are low in saturated fat
- Anti-inflammatory diets
- Diets for certain food intolerances such as being unable to digest wheat or being allergic to dairy products
The OHSU Neurology Wellness Clinic works with your OHSU Brain Institute team. A nutrition counselor looks at your current diet and works with your doctor and other members of your care team to help you make changes that will help you feel better and function better in daily life.
Nutritional supplements include herbs, vitamins, minerals, fish oils and probiotics. Research shows nutritional supplements can help people with the many neurological (brain and nervous system) conditions, including dementia, Alzheimer's disease, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, diabetic neuropathy and migraine headaches.
Your OHSU Brain Institute care team and experts at the OHSU Neurology Wellness Clinic will work together to decide if nutritional supplementation could be right for you.
