Low Salt is Bad for You! On Fox News!

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, electrolyte homeostasis, and genetics. She lives in Southern California. Her current research is focused on migraine cause, prevention and treatment without the use of medicines. 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 gated channels that modulate electrolytes and voltage in the brain, insulin and glucose transporters, and several other related variants, such as the MTHFR variants of the B vitamin methylation process and many others. Migraineurs are glucose sensitive and should avoid eating carbs as much as possible. As a result of the success of the first edition of her book and new research and findings after treating over 4000 migraineurs world wide, all ages and both genders, she is now finishing the 2nd edition. The 2nd edition is the “holy grail” of migraines, incorporating all there is to know and also hypotheses. It includes an academic research section with suggestions for further research. The book is full of citations to authenticate the statements she makes to be followed up by those interested and to spark further research interest. It is a "Complete Guide". Due out in the summer of 2017. Dr. Stanton received her BSc at UCLA in Mathematics, MBA at UCR, MS in Management Science and Engineering at Stanford University, PhD in NeuroEconomics at Claremont Graduate University, and fMRI certification at Harvard University Medical School at the Martinos Center for Neuroimaging for experimenting with neurotransmitters on human volunteers. For relaxation Dr. Stanton paints and photographs. Follow her on Twitter at: @MigraineBook
