Do you think a calorie is a calorie from any sugar?

I am posting a link here for you that you may think have nothing to do with migraines but I bet will sooner than later find out that it does because it modifies your brain. I also bet that most of you have no idea that when you buy “sugar” you are buying a mixture of 2 sweeteners (the proportions are industry secrets by government support), one that the body recognizes as sugar and makes your kids pop off the wall giving them a sugar high but the other half is a different type of sweetener that your brain does not see. THAT sweetener–you will find out from this presentation what it is–is the one that causes trouble today for just about everyone! Not only does it make your brain think it did not get sugar and wants more but it also destroys conversations between insulin and leptin–two critical hormones that tell your body and brain what to do with the sugar you have and how much energy to expand as a result. This presentation is over an hour long so make sure you have taken enough time out of your day to watch it. Also, it is a university presentation so part of it may be a bit complex–just ignore as the presenter says and return to paying attention to the important parts.

I highly welcome your thoughts and comments so I can see what people generally understand about the world around them to see what my next book’s topic will be–it will definitely bounce around the amazingly weak quality of the medical care our doctors provide today and why. Your thoughts will help me see what you thinks.

About Angela A Stanton, Ph.D.

Angela A Stanton, PhD, is a Neuroeconomist focusing on chronic pain--migraine in particular--physiology, electrolyte homeostasis, nutrition, and genetics. She lives in Southern California. Her current research is focused on migraine cause, prevention, and treatment without the use of medicine. As a forever migraineur from childhood, 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 variations of all voltage dependent channels, gates, and pumps (chanelopathy) that modulate electrolyte mineral density and voltage in the brain. In addition, insulin and glucose transporters, and several other variants, such as MTHFR variants of B vitamin methylation process and many others are different in the case of a migraineur from the general population. Migraineurs are glucose sensitive (carbohydrate intolerant) and should avoid eating carbs as much as possible. She is working on her hypothesis that migraine is a metabolic disease. As a result of the success of the first edition of her book and her helping over 5000 migraineurs successfully prevent their migraines world wide, all ages and both genders, and all types of migraines, she published the 2nd (extended) edition of her migraine book "Fighting The Migraine Epidemic: Complete Guide: How To Treat & Prevent Migraines Without Medications". The 2nd edition is the “holy grail” of migraine cause, development, and prevention, incorporating all there is to know. It includes a long section for medical and research professionals. The book is full of academic citations (over 800) to authenticate the statements she makes to make it easy to follow up by those interested and to spark further research interest. It is a "Complete Guide", published on September 29, 2017. Dr. Stanton received her BSc at UCLA in Mathematics, MBA at UCR, MS in Management Science and Engineering at Stanford University, PhD in Economics with dissertation in neuroscience (culminating in Neuroeconomics) at Claremont Graduate University, fMRI certification at Harvard University Medical School at the Martinos Center for Neuroimaging for experimenting with neurotransmitters on human volunteers, certification in LCHF/ketogenic diet from NN (Nutrition Network), certification in physiology (UPEN via Coursea), Nutrition (Harvard Shool of Public Health) and functional medicine studies. Dr. Stanton is an avid sports fan, currently power weight lifting and kickboxing. For relaxation (yeah.. about a half minute each day), she paints and photographs and loves to spend time with her family of husband of 45 years, 2 sons and their wives, and 2 granddaughters.
