What Are Migraine Prodromes? You Think You Know?


My latest academic journal article is published (pre-pub status but can already be read and shared). It defines what prodromes are. In general academic literature, as of prior to my publication, prodromes simply precede migraines but for no apparent reason. The only exception is aura that seems to be better understood. However, other prodromes are not understood and many prodromes are completely unknown.

In my new article Functional Prodrome in Migraines I redefine prodromes by showing their functions and purpose. My understanding of their functions comes from working with thousands of migraineurs in a Facebook group. While the group’s purpose for the migraineur members is to learn how to become migraine free, their talk with me helped greatly my understanding of the various prodrome types and what those prodromes mean.

This in turn helped me identify the best migraine prevention methods without the use of any medicines. A couple of previous academic journal articles I published explain various elements of migraine.

One academic journal article explains Migraine Cause and Treatment with some revolutionary explanations based on scientific understanding of the cell and what it needs to be able to function in a migraine brain, which is anatomically very different from the brain of a non-migraineur.

Another academic journal article is connected to migraines but it is primarily a critique of how statistics used. Cardiology is its main topic, discussing the connection of increased dietary salt and the “related” blood pressure increase: Are Statistics Misleading Sodium Reduction Benefits? This article is very critical of nearly all research publications associated with salt and its connection to blood pressure. It is amazing to see how many scientists don’t fully understand the statistic results they receive and jump into conclusions that are completely erroneous.

I hope you enjoy reading all three articles and learn more about migraines. Then visit my Stanton Migraine Protocol® website and read the many testimonials. Migraine is not a disease but a condition representing a brain in energy crisis. No amount of medicines will solve the problem of an energy crisis but understanding what energy crisis means will help knowing how to fix it. Proper energy provided the right way aborts and prevents all migraines. The goal is to learn to recognize migraines prior to their start. Few migraineurs know how to recognize functional prodromes before migraine starts without training.

Please read all three articles and contact me with any questions you have.

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.
