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!

Comments are welcome,

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
