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.

    They do Roald! It is ridiculous! Not sure what is driving some of the answers but in all honesty, “frankly my dear I don’t give a damn” is what applies. However, it is important to note that the exposure is great. And while there are many ignorant people out there, others are watching who may be more important! There were about 20k readers earlier. 50 readers per minute yesterday–not sure what it is today. The article is read by some who are concerned and some have stopped using Himalayan salt. If I can save 1 life with my paper, that is already great and job well done! The rest can do whatever. I cannot please them all and if I did, the world would not advance. ❤ Have a lunch date so the blog stands on its own until I return. ❤ have a good one!!

      lol Roald. I needed this table for a post I made that went viral and some peeps were questioning my math (they sure picked the argument with the wrong person.. I am a mathematician too)… The article is on the amount of lead in Himalayan salt! You find it here: http://www.hormonesmatter.com/himalayan-salt-lead-poisoning-global-scale/ and two commentators said that my math was wrong. In Himalayan salt there is 0.10 ppm (parts per million) lead. I had to calculate that over to ppb (parts per billion) to compare the amount with the tragedy that is happening in Flint, Michigan. There the lead in the water is getting people sick. Dr. Sanjay Gupta made a statement on the news that caught my attention: 5 ppb lead is very harmful. I wanted to calculate how Himalayan salt stacks up… it has 100 ppb lead so 20 times worse than what is really high… That is what this little table is. I had to put it somewhere I could link to in order to have it show up on the comment I responded to after the article. 🙂 Read the article.. hopefully the site will not crash anymore. It is not my site but one I am a science writer for and this morning so many people were reading the article that the server crashed. 16K people were reading it before the crash and now it is already over 14K so over 30K read it so far. Over 4000 FB shares. I don;t know how many twitter shares since twitter stopped its counting service for some reason. It is a very scary fact! I notified the CDC to look into it. This stuff needs to get off the shelves in stores!

        I read the article, and posted:

        >>> Damn, yet another reason why bullets are so deadly 😀

        Hmmm, I see math is not for everyone. Is that why all the money is gone before payday sometimes? <<<

        Of course it's still awaiting moderation. That scared, huh?

          yeah.. It is up now 😀 Moderation is needed everywhere. I am often attacked with personal stuff and those get to be trashed… Sorry for the inconvenience but this is life in the free world (particularly ones who need calculator to add 2+2)! 😀 And you did not crash the server! Thank you! ❤

              On that blog every comment is set to be moderated all the time. On mine if I let one comment through, yours always comes through except with links because those are not let through by akismet that catches spams… But there are several writers on hormonesmatter.com site and each has some people to avoid getting posts from so we always have everything moderated. Normally the owner of the site moderates but for this article I have so many comments that she lets me handle it since she does not have enough time.. lol..

                I got the feeling from the comments in that blog, that many people simple love to be in denial, having tons of problems to admit that what they thought was a good thing, actually is a crappy thing to do.
