The Daily Mail writes:
Can you cure migraines by eating more SALT? That’s the controversial suggestion by one US neuroscientist – but what do leading experts think?
The article was just published in the Daily Mail newspaper by Jane Feinmann, a journalist, about the Stanton Migraine Protocol, one of my migraineurs, and me. This (rather careful) article was written as a result of a YouTube video, recorded in speech challenge class, where my migraineur decided to make her public speech challenge into a testimonial for the Stanton Migraine Protocol. You can find the video here:
Of course, there is much more to the story than what is written in the newspaper–as always, there is only room for partial story.
In particular, there is a huge salt phobia among many scientists and doctors, still believing that salt causes high blood pressure, in spite of the many studies that show that salt doesn’t increase blood pressure (here is the most prominent one in The Lancet); old myths die out hard. The increased salt consumption in the protocol seems to present a stumbling block for scientists and doctors alike–and many migraineurs as they join the Facebook group.
However, given the success of the Protocol (see the many testimonials here) and the lack of anyone’s blood pressure ever increasing in the migraineur population (most wish their blood pressure increased because migraineurs tend to have very low blood pressure!), in the near five years the group has been helping migraineurs, the increased salt consumption has not caused any harm or change in the blood pressure. There are also non-migraineurs on the protocol, many joining specifically because they had high blood pressure, many out of control even with several medicines, yet they have ended up with reduced blood pressure using the increased salt protocol.
There is plenty of anecdotal evidence that the Stanton Migraine Protocol works to prevent migraines. Migraineurs choose to come off of all of their medicines and remain migraine free, as long as they stick to the Protocol. They all return to life, work, have families, and some return to intense sport.
Enjoy the article and please share!
For those wishing to learn more about my protocol, the book’s title is “Fighting The Migraine Epidemic: A Complete Guide: How To Treat & Prevent Migraines Without Medicine” and is available in paperback everywhere, the e-book format only at amazon.
Every migraineur is welcome to join the FB migraine group as well (it is free).
Please share to reach migraineurs all over the world. ❤️
