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.

Comments are moderated because of spam and not for disagreements. So please feel free to write your comment and if it is on the subject, it will go through regardless if I agree or not. Looking forward to a healthy discussion on this subject!

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
