The Medications We Take; the Scam!

This is a video trailer that was sent to me by a friend who is a documentary film maker. The video itself is 45 minutes long; the trailer is just 3 minutes but very powerful. Well worth your time to watch!

The most powerful thing about it is that everything it says is true. In fact one of the psychotropic medications shown was one of the medications that killed my mom. The reason why I am posting this trailer is that I manage a migraine group of Facebook and participated in other migraine groups as well. Every time the opportunity of taking a pill comes up, instead of taking good care of the body, people rather opt for the pill.

Why are we obsessed with the pills? What is it that wants us to take pills on top of pills every day instead of simply stopping to eat sugar or sugar substitutes? Are we such weak people that we even need to take our salt in a pill rather than in our food or as a pinch if we must? Are we taking Vitamin D3 instead of going to the sun? Are we taking calcium supplements instead of drinking milk?

Why are we obsessed with pills? What exactly do these pills do to us? Some of these questions are answered in the 3-minute trailer. I suppose if you purchase the 45-minute version, it will give you even more detailed information–I do not have that copy.

I sure hope this 3-minute video will help you change your mind and make progress toward quitting pills and will encourage you to take your health into your own hands. Most importantly I hope this video will help you see the light at the end of the tunnel!

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.
