Welcome to Stanton Migraine Protocol Website!

Welcome to the Stanton Migraine Protocol®, a protocol of great success that can help you learn what migraine is, what it is caused by, how it is caused, and why it is caused. The Protocol also teaches you how to stop an ongoing migraine, and how to prevent any new migraines from coming.

The Stanton Migraine Protocol® does not use any medicines, not an herbal or supplemental treatment either. It requires of you no expense, no tricks. Once you understand what migraine is, you will see why so many thousands are migraine free by applying it. Read some of the testimonials on this page to see. The Protocol need not cost you a penny. There is a free Facebook group you can join here to learn what to do. People may think “ah! But you must buy the book!” No, actually you don’t. The book is available in libraries (you can request your library to get it if it doesn’t already have it) and if you are an amazing kindle unlimited user, it is available free. So nope, you need not spend a cent on anything to become migraine free. The Stanton Migraine Protocol® is part of a nonprofit organization, which is endowed by several migraine sufferers who had success with the protocol. We use these funds to help offset costs for the needy, such as blood glucose and blood ketone testing equipment, and similar.

The Stanton Migraine Protocol® is a specifically custom tailored protocol of Stanton Migraine Protocol Inc., an IRS registered nonprofit educational charitable organization. Our goal is to educate and support migraineurs around the world by providing the latest migraine prevention knowledge available.

Fighting the Migraine Epidemic: Complete Guide

Fighting the Migraine Epidemic: Complete Guide

Thousands of people use the Stanton Migraine Protocol® all over the world successfully for all types of migraines. The Stanton Migraine Protocol® is based on the latest understanding of scientific research that recognizes that migraine brain is different from the brain of a non-migraineurs. Migraine brains have multiple sensory organ receptor connections–migraineurs are sensitive to light, sound, scents, touch, etc. The migraine brain needs more energy with a more mineral-dense electrolyte from non-migraineurs. The metabolism of migraineurs is also different–they are more likely to have metabolic disorders; more sensitive to electrolyte imbalances, weather changes, elevation differences, pressure differences, temperature differences, hormonal changes, and a variety of other elements affecting life.

The Stanton Migraine Protocol® incorporates several steps to evaluate the specific needs of the migraineur’s brain and to incorporate these special needs and maintenance. For package options and pricing and information about the Facebook groups, please contact Angela via the contact form below.

Quora on Migraine

Endless Stupidity

I have been a member of Quora for many years. I get “request for answer” from many Quora subscribers every single day and about 90% of the requests are associated with migraines, asking pretty much the same questions. Of course, I am requested for the answer since I am a migraine specialist! Now… the problem is that every time I get basically the same questions (3-5 times a day), I provide the same answers with the same links. I created a “form answer” of sorts that answers the same questions all the time, with links to my talks, papers, etc.

Apparently Quora wants responses to provide different links to the same questions! Does that make any sense to you? Not to me! I think it is stupid! You’d think it is only the algorithm, right? Nope! The person responding to me said the same thing: we want different links and answers to the same questions. Yep! Quora for you! The only reason I haven’t yet given up on their stupidity is because I feel sorry for the members who are asking honest questions. If I can help them, I feel I should. But there is a limit.

I decided to post all my Quora answers here and also on some of my other blogs, and once in a while I will link here, sometimes to other blogs, and sometimes provide the full info on Quora. All will still contain the same information though… lol.. This is my last effort on Quora. If I fail in this, I just drop them like a cold stone. I don’t need them at all! And I hope the people looking for help with their migraines will find me through other platforms.

Below, those with migraines will find all the answers they need to learn how to abort and prevent their migraines without any medicine.

What is a Migraine & How to Prevent it

Migraine is preventable. Migraine is a genetic condition, which sets up an extreme sensitivity to carbohydrates and a need for much higher sodium content of the electrolyte than typical. The solution to this sensitivity is that if you stop consuming carbohydrates and increase salt and water, you can prevent migraines.

Migraine is caused by an electrolyte imbalance as a result of the over-activity of the sensory neurons. In a migraineur’s brain, the sensory neurons have much more connections than the same neurons in a typical non-migraine brain. This is why migraineurs tend to be overstimulated by strong bright lights, strong odors, loud sounds, more sensitive to touch, and some (like me) also are super-tasters, so more sensitive to spices. More connections mean more “chatter” and so a healthy myelin system is essential.
Because of the hyper-reaction of the brain to sensory stimulus, it generates more voltage—voltage is communication in the brain—and that extra voltage uses more sodium. Migraineurs need more salt in their diet to counter this effect. Migraineurs are also glucose sensitive (carbs intolerant) because glucose removes sodium and water from cells—therefore, carbs reduce sodium even more, causing a migraine.

A Discussion on Protein–with a bit of Migraine as well

While most of the interviews I am asked for are about migraine, every now and then the discussion moves to other interesting areas. This podcast is about protein: what kind of protein, how much, age differences, and the many caveats of a healthy life by a high animal-protein diet. Why animal protein? Because the only plant protein that is complete in all amino acids is soy, which is full of goitrogens that kill the thyroid, and estrogen, which creates man-boobs. Because plant-proteins are incomplete, to start protein synthesis, you need to mix and match many plants that in sum will provide the right amino acids. To do this, you need to have a professional dietitian guide you. Animal proteins are always complete so you can just sit down and eat without any planning A winning strategy as far as I am concerned.

The link to the interview is here. Enjoy and ask questions!

Comments are welcome, as always, and are moderated for appropriateness.

Migraine Treatment and Prevention by the Stanton Migraine Protocol®

Definition of Migraine

Migraine is a genetic condition. Migraine brain has hypersensitive sensory neurons, more sensory neuronal connections, and different electrical properties than a typical brain1,2. Migraineurs waste 50% more sodium in their urine than typical subjects3. The most prominent migraine related genetic variants are associated with critical ionic channels that operate the brain’s electrical functions: action potential, resting potential, the delivery of neurotransmitters, and the resetting of the membrane potential4,5. Migraineurs’ brains are very sensitive to electrolyte imbalance as a result of channelopathy6-9. Migraineurs tend to end up with metabolic syndrome because of their carbohydrate sensitivity.

Stanton Migraine Protocol in the News Again!

Stanton Migraine Protocol in a Dutch Magazine?

What a surprise!
I had a couple of really busy days with interviews, one yesterday and one today, both early morning. If you know me: I am a night owl so mornings are tough on me.
It was interesting to see my reaction to a post by one of the migraineurs in the protocol group about a Dutch magazine publishing about me. Wow. Better than a cup of coffee! I was so happy and got energized on the spot. I wrote a blog article up to give a bit of the background of the book and the story in the magazine.
I have to ad that I don’t know the author of the article and she is not a member of my group(s)–not sure she ever was, at least not under her real name.
Part of the 2-page article is whited out because the magazine is by subscription only, so it cannot be shared openly online.

Aimovig (R) Revisited

Should You Take CGRPs like Aimovig (R)?

I originally wrote an article in July 2018. Since then, more has been learned about Aimovig(R)–and the other CGRP inhibitors that have since been released. I watch several FB groups for complaints and other pages as well. Most people only have complaints about them. Some of the adverse effects are serious.
At the original publication on this article only very few adverse reactions were noted–and only constipation was listed on the package. Now complaints number in the several dozens. Here are some:
1) complete body inflammation–now many doctors prescribe Aimoving(R) with Prednisone
2) Hypertension –now many doctor prescribe Aimovig(R) with beta blockers
3) hair loss
4) pneumonia
5) bronchitis
6) rashes all over
7) major GI distress
8) fibromyalgia
9) all kinds of nervous disorders
10) constipation that requires constant prescription laxatives or worse
11) nonstop chronic migraine
12) constant sinus infections
13) The worst part: since the half-life is 29 days, if you end up with an adverse reaction, in may last for 3 months and there is nothing anyone can do about it.
And the list goes on… so… think about it very carefully before you take this. Migraine is 100% preventable by a nutritional change and an increase is some minerals.
