Once Upon a Time There Was Facebook

Was you mean?

Yes, I think the correct term is was since the way it now operates it will not be too long before it will have to close its doors to revamp how it manages membership. Let me tell you a story (a true story).

Once upon there was a Ph.D. who wanted her title such as Ph.D. after her name on Facebook but it was not allowed and since all Ph.Ds are called Dr. so she put Dr in front of her name (first name and connected, like DrAngela) and that was permitted. She was like that for a long time, running several groups, one being a very successful migraine group since, you know, she figured out what causes migraines and how to prevent and stop them without any medications. She even wrote a book about it available all over the world (in paperback) and (in e-book). Her migraine group on FB has over 1600 members now (this after several hundred was removed) and all getting well, no migraines, changing their lives, being able to travel and go back to work or church, temple, mosque, or anywhere they wish, including enjoying loud concerts and getting scuba certified. These may seem simple to you but impossible for people with migraines. It is only possible if they have no migraines! So these people not only have no migraines but most have already stopped all medications and those who have not yet are in the process of reduction.

In any case, the group has been a success and people from all over the world have become members. Because there are no medications involved, it requires people to learn what differs in a migraine brain and how to supply the necessary increased energy needs–if you want to find out more, join the FB group while it is still there or buy the book or do both.

There have been many disgruntled members in the past because the migraine cause discoverer is a PhD and not an MD–of course MDs do not perform research only treat people so that goes without saying that it is not expected of an MD to actually find the cause of any illness. They are expected to recognize an ailment and provide medicines or send to specialist or surgeons but they do not actually conduct research.

Another key factor you need to know is that MDs have to pay to the Board of Medicine a fee for the right of having their Dr. title in front of their names but PhDs do not need to do that. An MD is only an MD in his/her own country but not anywhere else. A PhD is a Dr in every country and can start teaching and doing research immediately. So when some members attacked this PhD for “how dare you, you are not an MD” the response was obvious: of course not… if I were I would never have found the cause and would never be able to apply a treatment without medicines! MDs cannot prescribe a salad or water or more salt! They must prescribe medicines!

One of these members wanted to kick this PhD off Facebook and did so saying “she is not using her real name.” So this PhD had to go through the humiliating experience of uploading proof of her name: driver’s licence with number covered that clearly shows her name, date of birth, and photo. After 24 hours of being kicked off, she was forced to change her name. Title had to be dropped and Facebook also pulled her middle initial so now she is not actually with her real name but this is what Facebook considers her real name… not sure why.

Now while all this was happening, this kicked off PhD opened up a new Facebook account under a different name and identity with simply providing an email she created specifically for this purpose to see if proving identity was really necessary. Nope! She now has 2 Facebook account: the one Facebook forced on her with an incorrect name without the title and a fake identity that is just fine.

She ran a search and took screen captures of many Facebook members with titles, fake names (I mean clearly fake name like “kissmy…” names equivalent and is ready to test Facebook’s strength in every which way possible! If you had a similar experience, please let me know.

If you are an attorney interested in a public defamation case with such humility, please also contact me! Must be a California attorney.

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.

  2. lol.. yes, they stripped my name to something else and that person is not me.. I know. And I just received a bully message here from one of my FB persons from the UK–the peeps responsible for me being kicked off–with a secret name thinking I would never know.. lol.. she obviously has no blog and knows not how the system works in terms of spam… She also used a fake name so that note will remain for me as proof of the vindictive and jealous people who have no clue how to hate me and get rid of me for my success in figuring out migraine!!! I know that part of the hatred comes from the fact that once people go on my free protocol (yep, free) all drugs are dumped… big pharma will be in financial trouble. I can hardly wait until this mess opens up major! As for a new site away from FB–yep… working on it.

    I see the shit has hit the fan again, and now it’s FB shit. Policies, fake policies, hypocrisy, indifference, it’s all there again. Such crap!

    Make an FB site (if you want to stay) and only redirect people from there to a new site where you are allowed to present yourself with your true credentials?

    Um….I noticed Angela Stanton also wrote “Lies of a Real Housewife”. 😛 😀
