Angela Stanton

 Angela A Stanton, PhD has earned her doctorate in NeuroEconomics (experimental neuroscience using economic models) and is also fMRI certified, having earned the following degrees: PhD Claremont Graduate University in Economics with dissertation in neuroscience; fMRI certification at Harvard University, Athinoula A. Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging; MS in Management Science & Engineering, Stanford University; MBA at University of California, Riverside; BSc Mathematics, UCLA. 

Her doctoral research focused on understanding how human decision-making is influenced by neurotransmitter changes. She ran clinical trial experiments, gaining an appreciation of the role hormones play in emotional and physiological decisions. 

A lifelong migraine sufferer, in 2008 she took early retirement from her academic position and has been 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. How to Treat & Prevent Migraines Without Medicines) that established her as a leader in the field of migraine research based on nutrition and electrolyte management. 

She now teaches migraine sufferers and healthcare providers all over the world about how to abort and prevent migraines without any medicine.

Angela’s Top Tips

  1. Migraine is not a disease  – don’t consider it as a disease.
  2. Every time you feel a headache consider whether it is a migraine or not and you need to be able to distinguish if it is a migraine or a headache.
  3. Always consider what you ate – what causes the electrolyte imbalance?

Quotes by Angela Stanton

“A misconception is that migraine is a pulsating, throbbing headache, it’s not..

“Your body wants to heal and if you remove the symptoms then the symptoms will become stronger.

“There is only one reason for a migraine for everyone. It is always going to be associated with what is potentially causing an electrolyte imbalance.

“Migraineurs still have these heightened sensory organs. We simply haven’t adapted the same way as the people who don’t have migraines.

“You are a migraineur because you live in an environment that is not appropriately prepared for your adaptation.

“If you are able to avert the early morning migraine, which is when the majority of the migraines start, then you have averted more than 50% of migraines.

“Migraineurs excrete 50% more sodium than non migraineurs.
