     Put down the diet drink and step away!

     Yep, you heard me… Ever wonder why you drink that diet soda and end up with a migraine? Caffeine is known as a common migraine trigger, but there may be another culprit in that soda. If you started cutting out caffeine, but are still getting migraines every time you gulp a diet drink, your trigger might not be the caffeine. In fact, it could be the aspartame! Try replacing those diet drinks with healthier drink alternatives like sparkling water, tea or stevia sweetened sodas. You can even try this awesome DIY soda that is sweetened with honey… AND, side note, honey is actually used to help stop migraines when you first feel it coming on. Even more of a reason to try this one out!
