Hello there! Welcome to my thoughts, feelings, and sometimes my anger–also my research!

Angela A Stanton, PhD on April 29. 2022

Who Am I?

Angela A Stanton, PhD has earned her doctorate in Neuroeconomics (PhD in Economics with Experimental Neuroscience as the dissertation, here is chapter 2 of the dissertation for understanding the field: https://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0001128 ) and is fMRI certified. Her research focused on understanding how human decision-making is influenced by neurotransmitter (hormonal) changes in the brain. She ran many experiments, gaining an appreciation of the important roles neurons and hormones play in mental and physiological functions. As a postdoc, she was invited to the Max Planck Institute in Germany as a visiting research fellow. A lifelong migraine sufferer, in 2009 she took early retirement from her teaching position and has become an avid researcher in the field of migraines. Her efforts of understanding the cause of migraines have been assisted by thousands of migraine sufferers around the world. In 2014 she published the first, and in 2017 the second edition of the book (Fighting the Migraine Epidemic: Complete Guide) that established her as a leader in the field of migraine research based on nutrition and electrolytes. She now teaches migraine sufferers and healthcare practitioners all over the world about how to abort and prevent migraines without the use of medicine, using nutritional methods. She lives in sunny Southern California with her husband near her children and grandchildren, where she never stops trying to inspire everyone about the health benefits of healthy low-carbohydrate ways of eating, as well as the importance of staying active with mind and body.

    Please help me.
    My daughter is 16, chronic migrain sufferer. I see you are building a website on a diet you are working on. I can’t afford to wait for its completion. I need resources asap. Her life is severely impacted by continual morning pain of migraines , especially in the winter months. The school is working with us with Intermittent homebound as she is out of school for days in a row, or at best, every couple days. This was the routine last year and we are right back into the same situation again. She’s a typical teen. When she feels ok she doesn’t want to think about anything migraine. When she’s sick, which is most of the time, she’s begging for relief. She had a neurologist since 3rd grade. We’ve tried all types of medications, focused on water intake etc. We also have an appoint scheduled 7 months out at MISC Kids. So far no diagnosis has been made except Migraine.
    Tests were run at early age to rule out a growth of any kind. As of last month she’s on birth control to help balance hormone levels in an effort to help with Migraines. As a teen who hates limitations she will hate the idea of having her diet restricted/dictated. Your triggers and hers are strikingly similar- weather, pressure, temp, change etc. It was like reading about her. As she is chronic I have concerns regarding health impact on her future as well as present. I need guidelines, not generalities so we can get started. i need to incorporate a plan into her life so she can learn to live with it as
    well as come to appreciate it’s benefit. Please help me as a parent. Next step is to meet with a nutritionist, but they aren’t specializing in migraine. They provide generalities. I need something to give to my teen that makes sense to her and is a realistic approach. She’s giving up on me finding relief, but I’m not giving up until I find people who treat the cause, not only her symptom.

    I live in San Angelo, TX and lost Dr Gross, my ADHD and PTSD prescriber. For over a year I have only overcome bumps in the road that bang in the night not like successfully, but with the false fictions of failure; and I reactively when my prevailing awareness is lower than optimal I have to address these residuals modes like some collective mind map maze shining and shaking to release those of eye rise from every less than flash in the pan plan stepping upon and everywhere even new and now here more so than every there and then added up, yes way and much more encapsulated where every sphere is a horizontal truth on a parallel axis When I say disenoblement I am referring to the unuprightedness inherent as the second fall follow following the first inversion. I avoid to avoid esteem holes knowing as the tiniest ray of light in a total dark is seen so might an illusion block open up my looking of back instead of release of gone and by the way.

    • You are very poetic Greg. Not sure if you have a question. There is a blog post I would like to share with you: http://louisefowler.com/2015/12/03/ptsd/ that contains my email exchange with a PTSD friend. It may be of help to you. As for ADHD: I am not a fan of any medicine for anything that is not a physical ailment and particularly not for ADHD (or ADD) that, as per the very creator of these “diseases,” do not exist. He declared them to be phantom diseases to make $3 million from pharmaceuticals. And though he stated very clearly that they do not exist, all medical textbooks still contain them as legit diseases. They are not. I personally find that people who were given these diagnoses have above average IQs and the society deemed their restless curiosity and boredom with simple and repetitive detailed tasks as though it was a disease rather than a benefit. It is a benefit though so do not look for a doctor but look inside of you to undo the damage those drugs did and find your strength in a field of interest and dig in, make history by discovering something that an average brain cannot.

        Thank you Angela. I have all in all one poetic center ball of a round wall seeing through unimaginable over too tall going under like stuck thunder going around and round the foundless abounds. I am a lonely sphere with little ability to maintain relationships. I avoid the flourish and if I were a flower I would surely hide. After graduating from Central here in San Angelo, Texas 1976, I decided that I was not in any form or fashion able to but dream beyond the wall. I dream in round sounds walking on abounding grounds foot steps in slack reverb, in the canyon of echo calling walls. If I were to be what I in highest ideal can it would will itself so far above and beyond my better I would have to send myself a letter and ask that invisible chain of self boundation and the shell of my enclosure a door and a key to the morrow of more and the shore of appreciable otherness. I have no window other than imaginings many of which I would love to let go of and I would unshame my self concept. I would have not one distortion through which to say I saw and say see saw you all for lastly I would not want another follow of another fall. In my darkest pain and hurt I find my round shell unwell, cracking and in fear of the unknown. I as well am left with two thoughts: Is this to harm me or something else. Kahlil Gibran, after stimulants enabled my ability to read on a level of transformation and inspiration endowed me with hope and good fortune. …those dark nights, those water wave delusions from a full moon light, those dead letter dogma doodles shouted off of rooftops, and all the failed drug injections I would not administer to a thousand Hitler clones, just amplified my distress. I sought the help of perceived professional. I had no conscious awareness nor vocabulary to cloth the truth of my social shut off. I seem only pseudo-social when I am altered by drugs that over-ride disphoria, that over-ride my reactive introjections that devastate any natural and normal ability to encomfort companionship and recall my true latent abilities and most importantly my reason for being. Therefore without some grand plan, one from which I have worked for, for validation, I would only stop hitting my head against the wall because that and that only would feel so good. I do know that there is an underlying meaning in every detail of life and I via acid have irrevocable realization of my truest center, the center from which every I am of ancient and present speak, and know of the comfort and enlistment in this “new army armed with faith.” (Jewel)

    well Angela, I look forward to peeking in on your blog each week – and wow – your aim is a good one…
    writing about “serious misdiagnoses and mis-medications”
    well more power to ya – because (as I am sure you know) the power of one can have a huge impact – and this area needs help. 🙂

    • Yes, I know the fight is a large one Yvette but the bigger the better. If I have not even tried, I would feel really bad about that so I give it my best shot. It may not work, but at least I will achieve as much as calling attention to a problem people like to sweep under the rug. Let’s see if I can expose that dirt! 🙂

    • Thanks Sherri. No. She has not passed yet. We are waiting, I am busy chasing evils.. they still want to “discharge” her meaning dump her somewhere other than the hospital so I am no longer going to see her because I am mobbed by the case managers and hospice people. I am also not answering the phone anymore. I am just waiting for the last call and in the meantime filing with the state agencies and everywhere possible to get these hospitals off the map or under new management. Hugs. I will write when I have the chance. Hope your family is OK! ❤

  7. Hi Angela, I am so happy for you!!! I have story..but not sure if I would want to have it in a book…but good luck to you Doctor…so happy God Bless
    Sherri…I am going to re-blog this I am so proud you are such a great gal.


    • Thanks Sherri! I will not name names or give any private information. I will be writing a book to change the medical system. It will just list cases I know of where there were serious misdiagnoses and mis-medications that caused harm. I understand though that you’d rather keep it private. Thank you for visiting and all the best! Hugs!!
