Migraineurs are Helped by a Medicine-Free Protocol

Testimonial

I get new testimonials in my Facebook migraine group regularly. I only ask for permission to post those that contain no private information so I am not posting every day. But you should check them out frequently. All of them can be found in the migraine group.

A sample from today:

Returning to life:

“When I started this group I was so incredibly sick and had no clue what to do. I could barely work and spend time with my family. Thanks to Angela and all the supportive members of this group I have my life back. I’m off the Wellbutrin that I had been on for 14 years. I am taking no prescriptions at all. I even forgot the name of the migraine meds because I haven’t taken them in over a year. I love that I know how to listen to body and take better care of it. I did sprints yesterday followed by a six-mile walk. Two years [ago] I could not climb the stairs to my apartment because I was too weak. It has been a long journey but I feel great and wish it for everyone.”

Trouble-Making in Genetics

PRESS RELEASE

An article I wrote was just published. It is sure to turn some heads, roll some eyes, and get the blood pressure up for some as well. I am a rebel and will say what needs to be said.

Read the article and share it to save migraine sufferers from those torturous medicines they are forced to take. There is no need to medicate migraine. We just simply need to understand what it is and learn how to prevent it. It is so simple.

Enjoy and comments are welcome here or there,

Angela

The Forbidden Truth

This is a lecture that the opposition keeps on removing.

I don’t provide more information. Please watch the video. It is self explanatory also why the opposition keeps on removing it.

Received a Threat for This Article

Silent Death – Serotonin Syndrome

An article I originally published 2 years ago, was re-published today because of its success and many comments with people who are/were affected. Please share to save lives!

I must add that I received a threat on this article (not published) from a person whose first name is the same as the doctor who misdiagnosed my mom and because of which she died! This article is about the real cause of her death, which I have confirmed by an independent autopsy.

Here is the threat message I received:

“You are a toxic, ignorant, keyboard warrior. You are facilitating a culture of doctor-hating. You are damaging society. It is my most empassioned mission to have you discredited. Please delete your website.

You’ll be hearing lots from me

John” (Typos left as in the original note!)

So, if for nothing else, share to get the information out just to get this person out of my face! Let the world know that clueless doctors do exist and they harm and kill people!

As for the threat: reported to the FBI!

Thanks for sharing with the whole world!

Comments, as usual, are welcome (threats will entertain FBI investigators!)

The Aspirin Scam

Daily Aspirin Use Can Harm You!

I wrote about Aspirin a couple of years ago when the FDA denied Bayer the claim that Aspirin can and should be used as a preventive for heart conditions without any prior heart attack. Bayer was then denied by the FDA because Aspirin doesn’t prevent heart attacks when used prior to having had a heart attack first. Even after, it can only used as a secondary medicine together with a primary. Furthermore, this is only for men. For women, Aspirin doesn’t ever help to prevent heart attack even after a first heart attack. For women it only helps to prevent stroke caused by a blood clot (TIA)–but again, as a secondary medicine!

The Denial

Here is a quote of the 2014 regulation from the FDA that you can find in full here:

“FDA has reviewed studies on the use of aspirin for the prevention of a first cardiovascular event (primary prevention) and did not find sufficient support for the use of aspirin for primary prevention in these trials. FDA is currently awaiting results of additional clinical trials that are underway and are estimated to have reportable results in the next few years. These clinical trials may provide new evidence that could be the basis for changing the current uses (indications) for aspirin….

FDA recently denied a request submitted by Bayer HealthCare, LLC, requesting a change in the prescribing information for health care professionals (professional labeling) for aspirin to allow marketing of the product for prevention of heart attacks in patients with no prior history of cardiovascular disease.

After the 2003 advisory committee meeting, FDA was aware of several ongoing studies for primary prevention in patients with diabetes and diseases of the arteries and veins located outside of the heart and brain (peripheral vascular disease). We opted to wait for the outcome of these studies. The results of these studies were published over the past several years.  They did not demonstrate a significant benefit for primary prevention….

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC’s) national initiative, the Million Hearts Campaign, is focused on increasing appropriate, secondary prevention aspirin use in individuals who already have heart disease or stroke.  The CDC, in its Million Hearts Campaign, agrees with FDA’s position.

The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) recommends, as does FDA, the use of aspirin for secondary prevention.  Specifically, NHLBI recommends using aspirin to lower the risk of a heart attack for those who have already had one, and to keep arteries open in those who have had a previous heart bypass or other artery-opening procedure such as coronary angioplasty.”

The OTC Scam!

Although the FDA removed the rights for Bayer to claim any connection with heart attack prevention, recently, the FDA found that heart-associated images started to show up on OTC medicine labels that contained Aspirin.

The FDA is now reaching out again and blocking all false advertisement. All OTC products containing Aspirin with any image or statement referring to the heart is deemed against FDA guidelines.

In addition to not working as advertised by Bayer, Aspirin is also dangerous for the digestive system! Several studies show that Aspirin causes major gastrointestinal distress. A very large longitudinal study was stopped as a result of GI complaints by the patients–as reported in JAMA.

Watch Out for Clueless Doctors!

I had my encounter with a clueless doctor in an ER when a doctor was about to force an Aspirin down my throat for heart arrhythmia. When I reminded him of the FDA guidelines, his response was “my knowledge and experience overrules the regulations of the FDA“… I don’t think so dear clueless (and ignorant) doctor! You are not above the FDA regulations when it comes to medications!

In conclusion: don’t use Aspirin unless your doctor prescribed it and if you already had a heart attack or a TIA! Don’t take daily baby Aspirin! It may hurt you more than benefit you!

Skittles Fatten Cows! Wait a Minute! We Give Those to Our Kids Too!

Skittles to Fatten Cows?

You bet! It is well-known that cattle (and pigs) are fed all  kinds of things to fatten them up–grain is a great example. Now we learn they also eat Skittles. The problem is not that they eat Skittles but the reason why they do so and that requires a pause! A very serious pause about what YOU eat and what happens to you!

So let me preface this note on our most recent scientific understanding: carbohydrates (refined or the most fiber rich) are fattening while the fat you eat is not fattening since it is nutrient dense. The choice of words is wrong here since “fat” can mean that one is eating fat, or one has fat (fatty acid) in her tissues, or that one is actually fat (as in overweight); but these all mean very different things.

Fat (as Fatty Acid)

Fat as a fatty acid in one of three essential main macro nutrients we must eat. The other two are protein (amino acids) and carbohydrate. There are very big differences in what these macro nutrients do but I will not get into the details since the focus now is on fat. However, I want to point out one very important fact: eating fat (as in fatty acids in food) will not make you fat (as in overweight). The thing that gets you fat (as in overweight) is carbohydrates.

Carbohydrates

As noted earlier, there are several types of carbohydrates of which we are most familiar with the categorization of “refined” and “complex”.

Examples of carbohydrates (both refined and complex): Skittles, table sugar, honey, all kinds of bread (including whole wheat), anything made with corn (including popcorn), vegetables (all vegetables including spinach and broccoli that are pushed on us like there is no day without them), fruits (all fruits without exception), all juices (even your morning orange juice squeezed from your own oranges grown on your own tree in a non-GMO organic manner), all pastas, all bakery goods, rice, cereal (let’s face it, some of those are candies), and oh yes… all candies as well. I may have left some items out so be to clear, if it is grown on a plant or under ground or on a tree, or it is a plant, it is carbohydrates.

This doesn’t mean you cannot have some fruits or vegetables, obviously, but watch how much and which kinds you eat. There are many Low carbs High Fat (LCHF) groups and books to guide you.

Carbohydrates as Fat (meaning overweight)

The metabolic process of carbohydrates is conversion to glucose and fructose–all carbohydrate types have at least one though most both. Contrary to popular belief, carbohydrates are not essential to life.

Carbohydrates are not necessary building blocks for other molecules, and the body can obtain all its energy from protein and fat. Thus you could leave out carbohydratefrom you diet provided you get enough protein, fat including essential fatty acids, vitamins, minerals and water.” (source)

The body cannot use fructose for much of anything (the gut bacteria can but only if you eat fructose with insoluble fiber still bonded to it); fructose intolerance is quite common, particularly in children, which makes me think it is something we didn’t used to eat and now need to adapt to. Fructose causes lot of troubles, among which one is that it makes perfect triglyceride (the bad type cholesterol). Glucose can be created from protein (and even from fat) so there is really no reason for us to eat a single fruit or vegetable let alone pastries, cakes, or Skittles. But since many people and particularly children eat Skittles, let’s see why they feed them to cows.

You all are familiar with the term “grass-fed” cows. They are priced at a premium because they are not grain or Skittles fed. The difference is three-fold.

  1. Grain (and Skittles and starches like tapioca) make for fatter cows!
  2. Grain fed cows get those people sick who have gluten allergy or sensitivity or otherwise don’t eat grains at all. There are many of us out there!
  3. Grain fed cows are cheaper and more efficient to grow. If you noticed, most cattle farms have no grass under the cows at all only dirt. They are fed grains because, just like in people, carbohydrates make cows fat.

Skittles: probably few people are allergic to Skittles but Skittles does the same to people as it does to cows: Skittles makes cows and us fat too! Are you or you child eating Skittles?

Carbohydrates and Heart Disease

The most controversial subject about nutrition of this century has been that eating fat doesn’t clog your arteries with fat. Carbohydrates clogs your arteries up. Eating fat doesn’t raise your blood pressure but eating carbohydrates does. Eating fat doesn’t cause type 2 diabetes since fat doesn’t use insulin but eating carbohydrates does and it can cause type 2 diabetes. Eating fat doesn’t cause non-alcoholic fatty liver disease but eating carbs does–particularly if the carbohydrates are fructose rich.

So Let’s Get Back to Skittles

Skittles are made of a ton of sugar (carbohydrates) that is a combination of glucose and fructose of mass destruction to the body. Are you going to eat those cows that were fed Skittles?

The Top 100!

The Top 100 in 2016

I started writing for Hormones Matter at the end of 2014–a little over two years ago. Since then I wrote 18 articles. From the 18 I wrote so far, 5 made this year’s top 100 and 2 are listed among the all-time top 25.

Here they are:

In The Top 100

Himalayan Salt – Flint on Global Scale? (here)

Dehydration and Salt Deficiency Trigger Migraine (here)

Topamax: The Drug with 9 Lives (here)

Silent Death – Serotonin Syndrome (here)

The Truth About Salt (here)

And in the All Time Top 25:

Himalayan Salt – Flint on Global Scale? (here)

Dehydration and Salt Deficiency Trigger Migraine (here)

I hope you will visit all the articles (not just the ones I wrote) and learn a great deal about all kinds of health issues in a scientific way! I am very proud of this, not because my articles made it to the top but because there are so many great articles on so many topics of interest, all with great scientific knowledge and acumen. I truly enjoy my time writing for Hormones Matter and feel honored to be one of their writers.

Comments are welcome, as always.
