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.

THE MORNING SHOW with Patrick Timpone: Angela A. Stanton PhD:
New Book Release
“Fighting the Migraine Epidemic: A Complete Guide. How to Treat & Prevent Migraines Without Medicine“ is released in both paperback and e-book around the world.
My doctoral studies did not start out with the goal of understanding migraine, but they helped me because of two key reasons:
1) My doctorate is multidisciplinary, meaning it requires the understanding of many fields. It taught me to be broad in my vision and stay open-minded to be able to think out of the box and to connect the dots. I have become more of a visionary scientist (I would call that a theorist if there was such in medicine) than a lab scientist. I take advantage of being able to connect dots that are invisible to others.
2) I too am a migraineur so seeing the problem from within allowed me to ask questions that other researchers or doctors cannot think of.
I have discovered the cause of migraines and have been living a migraine and medicine free life for many years now. I am passing on the wisdom to thousands of migraineurs and also to many doctors now all over the world. I have a long list of testimonials posted on my special website to Stanton Migraine Protocol®, which is now the gold standard and only true prevention and treatment for migraines without medicines. Many doctors and even a local hospital now sends migraineurs my way for treatment and there are several doctors in my migraine group to learn what I do.
