The Best Thing About Migraine: Preventable! Read this cute story!

Say what? Migraine is preventable? Indeed it is!

I run a large migraine group on Facebook. I was a migraineur for over 30 years and grew frustrated with doctors pushing drugs that did not work. My thought was this: why am I a scientist if I cannot figure out my migraines? So I did! I am not going to give my secret away! Nope! I will ask you to read a few short things so you can understand what migraine is, spend $3 for an e-book or $19 for a paperback and read  more! I also link you to my migraine website so you can send me request for more information. So, buckle your seat belt! This is not going to be a tough ride but a fun one albeit fast.

First I share a testimonial I received today that I thought was one of the cutest stories I have ever read. This was posted into my migraine group today by a member and I have a permit to share.

The Testimonial of the Day:

Such a gratifying day! I told my neurologist today that I was breaking up with him because I do not get migraines anymore. (Down from 25 per month). He was very intrigued. I gave him a paper with Dr Stanton’s book name, fb group, website, and link to recently published article. He immediately brought it up on his laptop. He was skeptical thinking that perhaps hydration alone (cutting out diet soda) was the main reason my migraines stopped. I politely disagreed and explained further about electrolytes and balance, etc. He was then concerned I was getting too much potassium from food and what is in the S!CAPS. After I explained further and he was reading Angela’s website quickly, he said he loved it. He said he WILL read it and will recommend it to others. He has patients everyday asking for non-drug therapy. He said he will recommend this as an option and use my example as a success story. I told him that I’m sorry we were breaking up (lol) but I appreciate everything he tried to help my migraines over the years. I gave him the name of this fb group and I told he was welcome to join and learn more. Thank you again Dr. Angela. I never thought I would ever be so happy about a break up. –CMS

As you can see, even the neurologist has become a believer–and by the way I do have several doctors in the migraine group with migraines who are in my care. Doctors get migraines too! That is good to know. A doctor with migraine is more caring and chances are you will be treated better.

Now the links to what you need to read. First read my latest published article in an academic journal about what migraine is caused by and how to treat it. This is only a partial solution though–all secrets are not in it. Next read my articles at this website, which I do not own or run; I am just one of several permanent authors–some MDs. Finally buy my book. It is available everywhere. Here I link you to the amazon store of both e-book and paperback. Although the e-book says “kindle,” it comes with the kindle app and you can download it free to any platform. And finally to my migraine website so you can learn more about the Stanton Migraine Protocol® and read also all the testimonials (there are lots) on that website here.

I hope that you will come to see what is happening. If you are committed to get rid of your migraine without any medicines and are willing to participate, you can also join my FB migraine group. If you feel that a migraine group full of thousands of people is not your thing, you can hire me for private consultation for a nominal fee that covers my cost and which provides you privacy and full support. Send me a request for more info for that here.

Life is way more beautiful without pain and especially without any medicines! I have been  migraine free for 5 years and nearly all members who have been with us for several months all are as well. If we can do it, you can do it too.

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
