About Be Healthy

Angela A Stanton, PhD, is a Neuroeconomist who evaluates changes in behavior, chronic pain, decision-making, as a result of hormonal variations in the brain. She lives in Southern California. Her current research is focused on migraine cause, prevention and treatment without the use of medicines. As a migraineur, her discovery was helped by experimenting on herself. She found the cause of migraine to be at the ionic level, associated with disruption of the electrolyte homeostasis, resulting from genetic mutations of insulin and glucose transporters, and voltage gated sodium and calcium channel mutations. Such mutations cause major shifts in a migraine brain, unlike that of a non-migraine brain. A non-migraineur can handle electrolyte changes on autopilot. A migraineur must always be on manual guard for such changes to maintain electrolyte homeostasis. The book Fighting The Migraine Epidemic: How To Treat and Prevent Migraines Without Medicines - An Insider's View explains why we have migraines, how to prevent them and how to stay migraine (and medicine) free for life. As a result of the success of the first edition of her book and new research and findings, she is now finishing the 2nd edition. The 2nd edition is the “holy grail” of migraines, incorporating all there is to know at the moment and also some hypotheses. It includes an academic research section with suggestions for further research. The book is full of citations to authenticate the statements she makes to be followed up by those interested and to spark further research interest. While working on the 2nd edition of the book she also published academic articles: "Migraine Cause and Treatment" Mental Health in family Medicine, November 23, 2015, open access "Functional Prodrome in Migraines" Journal of Neurological Disorders, January 22, 2016, open access "Are Statistics Misleading Sodium Reduction Benefits?", Journal of Medical Diagnostic Method, February 3, 2016, open access “A Comment on Severe Headache or Migraine History Is Inversely Correlated With Dietary Sodium Intake: NHANES 1999-2004” Angela A Stanton PhD, 19 July 2016 DOI: 10.1111/head.12861 not open access, subscription is required to read it. Dr. Stanton received her BSc at UCLA in Mathematics, MBA at UCR, MS in Management Science and Engineering at Stanford University, PhD in NeuroEconomics at Claremont Graduate University, and fMRI certification at Harvard University Medical School at the Martinos Center for Neuroimaging for experimenting with neurotransmitters on human volunteers. For relaxation Dr. Stanton paints and photographs. Follow her on Twitter at: @MigraineBook

    Dear Angela,

    Impressive I should say and I will be looking forward to reading your book. I got involved with medical malpractice since my daughter got killed by an evil doctor or doctors or Hospital. She was sent to the ER to rule-out septic knee and failed to do the proper tests and then sent her home to die and she did 2.5 days later. Then I called a lawyer and keep getting turned down by M.I.C.R.A. in California. It is the model of all tort reform! This is our site http://www.shellyBeenz.com which has much of her case on it. I will be adding & deleting as we grow. I really miss my baby girl and it has been 10 very long/short span of time with much pain and tears.
    Take cafe,


    • Wow Shelly! What a sad story! It will definitely be a high topic in my book! I want to reform the medical industry. My mother had a major stroke today as a result of yet one more doctor error. I am now officially going to become a crusader to change the system.I will do the best I can and not just in my book but in other ways as well. I will carry the flag of all who are or have been hurt and somehow figure out a way to start a grassroots movement for change! I will keep in touch so you will have the chance to bring your experience forward as well. I am working with an organization called 4Fate.org and I will ask them how to start such movement. Maybe they know and they may help. Hugs and very sorry for your loss!


I would love to see your thoughts!
