In the Jungles of Panama: Sugar is Not Permitted!

Sugar – the Disguised Drug of Pleasure that Future Illnesses are Made Of

I received a most amazing message from one of my migraine sufferers that I want to share because I found it so amazing and it underlies our clueless doctors society where sugar is pushed down our throats so that we can get sick and make everyone rich at our expense!

The message:

Hello Dr. Stanton This week I had the opportunity to visit an Embera Indian village in the jungle of Panama. It is fairly remote, accessible only by canoe. The Medicine Man, after taking us on a hike where he pointed out the various plants he uses, told us that before he will attempt to treat anyone they must agree to give up all sugar. I thought you would find this primitive wisdom interesting.

Cheers PL (name kept for privacy)

Well let me ask you this: Don’t you find this amazing that a “primitive wisdom” of no formal Westernized education is of higher quality in terms of nutrition than the wisdom of billions of educated people on the planet? So America: Stop all added sweets that include all sugars (honey and maple syrup as well!) and all sugar substitutes (that includes Stevia and Agave as well!). Stop all sweet!

It may just do the following:

  1. reverse diabetes 2 if you already have it
  2. reverse hypoglycemia (pre-diabetes)
  3. reverse high cholesterol
  4. reverse heart disease or at least halt its progression to heart attack
  5. reverse your chances for stroke
  6. reverse your fatty liver
  7. reverse your metabolic syndrome
  8. reverse obesity
  9. reverse some types of headaches
  10. reverse some forms of depression
  11. reverse some forms of phantom mental disorders such as ADD/ADHD
  12. increase your strength – even for athletic performance

This is a short list of things that can happen when you stop sweeteners. Food for thought (and health)!

Enjoy your sweetener free day!!

Comments are welcome as always!

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
