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 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.
