Ha! One More Post for the Day!

Last post for the year 2014!

And you thought my daily posts are over for this year. I must tell you that I also thought it was until I started to read my new book.

I just have to tell you what made me pop off the chair today because no doctor ever talks about it and I have just written about it on my blog: sugar and migraines and the salt connection. I have purchased a book “Manual of Medicine” because my old one is worn out and too old for the new stuff. I am hoping to connect migraine, fibromyalgia, and some other things under the “same cause” so I am brushing up on the latest knowledge of internal medicine.

The very first page of the Manual of Medicine is what is in my migraine book Fighting the Migraine Epidemic. This is already great confirmation to you that you are doing the right thing.

The second page is exactly what is on the blog about sugar and salt. As it happens, as you increase sugar, sodium leaves the body because of all the water washing it out–sugar is diuretic. The converse is also true. If you are not eating enough sodium (salt is sodium chloride), your sugar increases! Bingo for those with diabetes II!

Amazingly, while this is page 1 and 2 of the manual all doctors and hospitals are supposed to be following, not one doctor ever checks for electrolyte panel when you go for a hospital or ER visit! They should! They must! They just pump you up with IV nearly simultaneously to your arrival to ER for “just in case.” Wrong. They should not be doing that! (Yes, they can and will charge and arm and a leg for that as well!)

The most important information to those of you who do not eat enough salt: start eating salt else you take a chance on blood glucose increase, which means floating insulin leading to type II diabetes.

It is nice to be confirmed on page 1 and 2 of the internal medicine manual doctors use. It is also interesting to note that no doctor remembers this that I know–but now you do!!

Empower yourselves and be healthy!

Comments are welcome as always! Happy New Year Everyone!


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.
