OK! My migraine book has just been replicated on Fox news!
I wrote down what they said on TV since they often move the clip: Low salt is bad for you and can get you to ER real quick. It also causes headaches (in our case migraines).
Drinking too much water in general causes low sodium. Signs of too low salt: seizures, fatigue, abdominal pain, confusion, headache, muscle aches, nausea, vomiting.
Diuretics given to heart patients and hypertension (high blood pressure) patients get rid of water AND salt. Drink electrolyte, eat salt, restrict water and take only salt… do not replace salt rapidly (this is why I tell all members in my migraine group to increase salt slowly) else it can cause edema in the brain. Restrict water to 2 liters (68 fluid ounces) if you are extremely low in salt until you recover. Low salt causes seizure.
I am not able to get the video clip built in so they will move the video elsewhere but for now here it is.
Increase salt VERY slow! Hence my constant warning to increase water and also increase salt slow in the migraine group! This is a very large part of my book (e-book, paperback) that was just presented by Fox News. The link is above but they often move the link hence my long-hand transcript. My book’s title is
Fighting The Migraine Epidemic: How To Treat and Prevent Migraines Without Medicines – An Insider’s View
Go get it if you are a migraineur! I explain exactly what the news just explained and also explain how it connects to migraines, why, how to prevent migraine pain, and how to maintain a migraine free life!
About Angela A Stanton, Ph.D.
Angela A Stanton, PhD, is a Neuroeconomist focusing on chronic pain--migraine in particular--physiology, electrolyte homeostasis, nutrition, and genetics. She lives in Southern California. Her current research is focused on migraine cause, prevention, and treatment without the use of medicine. As a forever migraineur from childhood, her discovery was helped by experimenting on herself. She found the cause of migraine to be at the ionic level, associated with disruption of the electrolyte homeostasis, resulting from genetic variations of all voltage dependent channels, gates, and pumps (chanelopathy) that modulate electrolyte mineral density and voltage in the brain. In addition, insulin and glucose transporters, and several other variants, such as MTHFR variants of B vitamin methylation process and many others are different in the case of a migraineur from the general population.
Migraineurs are glucose sensitive (carbohydrate intolerant) and should avoid eating carbs as much as possible. She is working on her hypothesis that migraine is a metabolic disease.
As a result of the success of the first edition of her book and her helping over 5000 migraineurs successfully prevent their migraines world wide, all ages and both genders, and all types of migraines, she published the 2nd (extended) edition of her migraine book "Fighting The Migraine Epidemic: Complete Guide: How To Treat & Prevent Migraines Without Medications". The 2nd edition is the “holy grail” of migraine cause, development, and prevention, incorporating all there is to know. It includes a long section for medical and research professionals. The book is full of academic citations (over 800) to authenticate the statements she makes to make it easy to follow up by those interested and to spark further research interest. It is a "Complete Guide", published on September 29, 2017.
Dr. Stanton received her BSc at UCLA in Mathematics, MBA at UCR, MS in Management Science and Engineering at Stanford University, PhD in Economics with dissertation in neuroscience (culminating in Neuroeconomics) at Claremont Graduate University, fMRI certification at Harvard University Medical School at the Martinos Center for Neuroimaging for experimenting with neurotransmitters on human volunteers, certification in LCHF/ketogenic diet from NN (Nutrition Network), certification in physiology (UPEN via Coursea), Nutrition (Harvard Shool of Public Health) and functional medicine studies. Dr. Stanton is an avid sports fan, currently power weight lifting and kickboxing. For relaxation (yeah.. about a half minute each day), she paints and photographs and loves to spend time with her family of husband of 45 years, 2 sons and their wives, and 2 granddaughters.
