I have been so busy lately that I haven’t had the chance to add anything to my blog. I am posting links to two podcasts, one belatedly for lack of time, and an organization that hosts lectures, some of which I recorded–those yet to be posted. I am recording the last one this week!
Latest podcast with Casey and Bethany. This podcast is a bit of mix of everything, including my original research field, which is Neuroeconomics, and, of course, migraines. I truly enjoyed the questions I received! They were different from the other podcast interviews I had in the past. I finally also slowed down my speaking so you can even understand me! 😁🙈 I hope you enjoy listening to it here or if you prefer YouTube, here is the podcast (voice only):
Another podcast, which aired several weeks ago is here with Scott at The Carnivore Cast or here if you prefer YouTube (voice only):
Lectures & Conference
And, in between, I had been busy recording lectures for Nutrition Network where you can receive continuing educational credit if you are a healthcare provider and taking courses–including mine. And lastly, I have also presented at the World Summit on Nutrition in early March.
So this has been a very busy two months period. More interview to come next month. And I hope to write more as the year will come closer to its end, since I am also writing the 3rd edition of my migraine book–the 2nd edition Fighting The Migraine Epidemic: Complete Guide: How to Treat & Prevent Migraines Without Medicines can be found here.
I hope everyone is well, staying healthy and happy!
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.
