A Special 5* Review
I would like to share a very special review I received on my book at amazon yesterday. It made me cry a few tears because the story is so familiar to all migraineurs–including me. So get your tissue box ready and read the wonderful testimonial, which is on amazon:
“I bought this book on Jan 20th during a particularly terrible migraine. I was quite desperate and stumbled across the Facebook group in a health forum. I have had migraines since I can remember, at least 5 years old. When my mom would take me to the dr they would tell her “just give her Tylenol” which never helped. It was a long time before I realized that most people aren’t in pain most of the time. But except for six months after a car accident when I was in my 20’s they would keep me home 4-5 times a month but I was still able to function. 3-4 years ago they started getting worse so I went to my dr. He threw a bunch of medicine at me and then said he couldn’t do anything more. So I went to another dr, rinse and repeat until I was so frustrated (and missing so much work) that I referred myself to the USC pain center. I was then given nerve blocks, magnesium infusions, botox, SPG blocks, more and more and more medicine and none of it worked. I only got worse, until I have been off work for over a year and could barely take care of my 3 kids. At one time I would have been excited to be able to make dinner once a week, that is how bad it was. Constant pain, nausea, difficulty thinking, plus depression and anxiety until I didn’t even know how I could go on. Then last October I tried the Keto diet and I felt a little better. I was able to at least participate in my life. On New Years Eve I had 1 piece of pizza and that was a mistake. All of my migraine symptoms came back and no matter how faithful I was to the diet I couldn’t get relief. So in desperation in bed with an ice pack on my head and praying the triptans I took would work I found this book.
This book is amazing, it is so simple and yet the difference in my life is something I can’t even explain! It gave me my life back!!! I have not taken any medication since the day I found this book. I tried to understand it through my foggy head and started with the milk at night (I always would wake up with a migraine) and the salt and water (increasing my water slowly as suggested) and once I was feeling better started with the balancing of my sodium and potassium. I’ve been taking magnesium as well. I was already off of all sugar and grains. I have never in my life gone for 30 days without a full blown migraine. I have had prodrome but was always able to follow the steps in the book and take steps to abort the migraine before it happened.
I am sooo grateful to Dr Stanton because she gave me my life back! She gave my husband his wife back and my kids their mother back! I don’t have to spend my days in my dark bedroom praying I don’t go through my 9 triptans before I can get a refill. I don’t have to wonder if I should go to the emergency room because the pain is so unbearable. This book is the best thing I have ever read and I am so excited to be able to write this review. I wanted to wait until I was sure it was working so that I could write the most helpful review possible.
I am also part of the Facebook group that Dr Stanton has and she is so helpful and kind. She and the other admins have done nothing but help me on this journey and I am so grateful!!!”
I am so glad to have picked such rewarding field of research and be able to help the many thousands I already have. Receiving a message like that is a true life-changing event in my life as well, because she trusted me! And that is really hard to do! ❤
