And the Fight Goes On!

An Eulogy and a Warning!

This was meant to be an eulogy for Dr. Gonzales but I decided to make it more than that. You may not be familiar with his name albeit thousands are. He was a doctor that pharmaceutical companies hated! Hated just like the other doctors, similar to him, who also mysteriously died. I have now been warned by my friends (and by Dr. Gonzalez as you will read) to watch what I am doing because I may be next so I decided to write-up the truth boldly and straight forward not leaving a stone unturned!

I very seriously believe that if I get hurt after this, the industry will indeed be in trouble! So let’s see that truth!

The last time I talked to Dr. Gonzalez was about two weeks ago when he called me. He had a policy of “no emails” so I sent him a letter describing that I found the cause for migraines.  Thousands are treated by me in my group and by my Stanton Migraine ProtocolTM without the use of any medicines. I explained to him that I discovered that migraine is not a disease; it is a mistreated brain that needs more electricity.

I explained that migraineurs have different brains: they have more sensory organ neuron receptor connection so their sensory organs are on alert; these organs are more hyperactive1. I also explained that migraine brains function at a different voltage frequency and without break; the resting potential in the brain of a migraineur is not much different from its action potential2 so migraineurs use more voltage. This extra voltage needs to be created by sodium chloride (salt). Migraineurs excrete about 50% more sodium in their urine3 as well. It is also known that there is some connection to metabolic syndrome but no study has yet been able to identify why4-9.

I have understood all that and found the missing link. I discovered the connection of all separate findings by others. I explained to Dr. Gonzalez that I am facing a world where one cannot take a breath of fresh air with certainty until a clinical trial was conducted by the funds or supervision of the pharmaceutical industry so I am at a dead-end as far as academia goes. So I left academia but I now find that no journal is willing to publish a paper—no matter how much sense it makes—unless a clinical trial is conducted. I received such comment from JAMA for instant. They said it was a very interesting finding and they would be interested but I need clinical trials.

Clinical trial for what? The Stanton Migraine ProtocolTM uses no medicines, no herbs or supplements. So what exactly is there to be tried in a clinical setting? Electrolytes? (already used by all hospitals) Salt? (we eat it every day) Water? (we drink it all the time) These are things we eat and drink every day! Why a trial? What trial?

Clinical trials also mean placebo treatment for half the trial patients. Shall I keep half the patients in horrible migraine pain? And they will not know they are on placebo? Really? What human ethical committee would ever approve a trial that causes pain on purpose? None I hope! Not to mention what exactly does it mean placebo when it comes to elements that combined make up 70% of our body and our diet every day? Should my placebo group be getting no food? No water? No salt? No electrolytes? What does placebo mean in terms of natural versus medicines?

His words to me were as follows and though I use a quote, it is not exact since it was a telephone conversation. He said to me this:

“Dr. Stanton. Do not ever run a clinical trial because the pharmaceutical companies will make your work impossible! They will undermine every effort you take to prove you are wrong and that medicine is needed for migraines! Do not try to publish in academic papers! No one will accept it but they may steal your ideas! Continue publishing your work in books and continue your work in your migraine group! Heck, over 1700 people getting well from your treatment and are migraine free most of the time; this sings songs to my ears and shows more value than any clinical trial! So keep on doing what you are doing.”

He also explained to me that he is using some of my protocol with his cancer patients but not all and has not gone as far as I have in sodium but he said he will try with his cancer patients because they seem to benefit from the extra volume enhanced hydration as well. His last words were “watch your back.”

And on 7/23/2015 he is dead.

He is one of several nature doctors who suddenly died out of the blue in a very short time. I am told there is no foul play, all are coincidental. I do not believe in 7 coincidental events one after the other, all equally unlikely and the same fate, the same way. In light of what he told me on the phone, I do not believe that there is no foul play!

So my dear readers and followers, I wrote this article to let you know that I belong to the same group of healers as Dr. Gonzalez belonged to and his wise words will resonate with me for the rest of my career. I will not pursue academic work anymore. I already have several pharmaceutical company supporters trying to blast my work into “quackery” even if it treats thousands of people, because treating people without medicines means longer unemployment lines for the pharmaceutical industry!

I welcome all attacks with open arms since attacks mean my protocol is successful and worthy to attack! Bring it on!

I have proof that the protocol works, thousands stopped all medications and have recovery: migraine free life without medicines. They changed their lives and are pain free as long as they observe and support the kind of brain they have. This will cost money to the pharmaceutical industry and yes, I will win and they will lose! Yes, all doctors who avoid prescribing medicines when they are not needed will win! At the end, the customers decide! Doctors supporting big pharma will be fired and replaced! We already have an open database where you can check if your doctor is getting paid off by big pharma. YOU can chose! Chose wisely!

Please watch out for big pharma! They cause harm to you and to those trying to protect you!

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.

    Great article, Dr. Stanton. We need more doctors like you! Have you ever considered looking into the cure for fluoroquinolone toxicity syndrome. With over 20 million Rx’s written every year, even if only 1% of the people have permanent adverse reactions, that is 200,000 patients a year. Currently there seems to be no cure, and people are really suffering (including me). Some recent articles for your consideration: AND AND

    • Ren, thank you for your comment. I am very much involved with the fluoroquinilone toxicity syndrome already and in fact have a petition at the FDA against that drug class! I started with Cipro because if they pull one drug in that class, they must pull all. Apparently I started the FDA thinking seriously. I have link here for you to the citizen petition that you still have time to comment on with instructions on how to do it. Currently there are 15 comments but only 1 is visible to me. That is from a floxed pharmacist asking for changes. I am not able to see the other 14 for some reason, which makes me suspect that Bayer (manufacturer of Cipro) has its legal department busy fighting me…

      The fluoroquinolone drugs (all of them) must be removed from the market in order for research on the harm they cause-and keep on causing can start! So we must get this drug off the market today!!! Please file a comment and encourage the Floxed community to also file a comment on my petition! Best of luck to you! Angela


I would love to see your thoughts!
