A Most Amazing Migraine Treatment

From One of the Many Amazing Migraine Sufferers

“Two and a half years ago I began treatment at the Michigan Head Pain and Neurological Institute, in Ann Arbor. I went on and off nearly 30+ prophylactics and abortive medications, gained 50lbs, had two inpatient hospital stays, both 14 days in length, met with the neurologists in A2 every 4 weeks, had numerous nerve blocks (steroids) both with and without sedation, 2 lumbar punctures, tried two rounds of botox, and i was still living with daily migraine pain, on average, of a 3 on a 5 scale. I started suffering from cardiac issues such as SVT’s that needed medication and venous insufficiency. The medications were taking a serious toll on my body.

I’ve suffered near daily migraines for over 10 years, and I’ve battled chronic (15 ish days/month) migraine pain since I was around 12 years old.

Before the institute, I had tried approximately 20+ different meds, chiropractic care, acupuncture, and elimination diets, which like the above, had no positive impact on my health.

Yesterday, I had my checkup at the Institute, and I was told I don’t need to go back for 1 year! I graduated from the neurology department after over 20 years of crappy and unreliable service.

I am pain free these days and it’s amazing. Some may find my new lifestyle too hard, and too much work, but I find it freeing. I’m now managing food and electrolytes instead of pills and injections.

I’ve posted before, and I’ll post again, my extreme gratitude for Angela Stanton and her perseverance and dedication to me, and all members of our migraine family. And to Kristin Elizabeth Ingram and Terri Haas Corley who, and I don’t know how, seem to be on call each and everyday, to support our group, every step of the way, on our journey to improved health.

As always, send me your questions, and I’ll provide whatever support you need. Anyone suffering with chronic pain understands my immense elation over this! I never ever thought it was possible to wake up and feel good. Everyday, I just wake up and go. I don’t worry about canceling plans or having to “deal” with children like I used to.

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.
