Horrible head ache, drinks lots of processed drinks. Mineral deficiency? Any ideas?

A friend of mine has horrible headaches, and they are so bad that he has to throw up, but then he feels better. It's not everyday he has them, but it's not rare either, it's every once in a while... Could this be a magnesium or mineral deficiency? Dehydration? He drinks alot of cokes and hardly any water. Or could it be from processed foods? He said he's had this most of his life. I know it's migranes, but I'm wondering what is the cause? Thanks. He's in his 20's.

There are many foods that are thought to trigger headaches and migraines. Dietary habits can also play a role - fasting, dehydration, or skipping meals may also cause headaches. By tracking your headache episodes through a headache diary, you may be able to identify specific foods that trigger your headaches.
Some of the most common foods, beverages, and additives that may be associated with headaches include:
-Aged cheese and other tyramine-containing foods
-food additives
-cold foods
thank you
