Most migraineurs seek help from healthcare professionals and end up with a host of medicines. The Stanton Migraine Protocol® is a solution based on understanding what migraine is caused by rather than dampening the symptoms, which is what medicines aim to do.

We offer a variety of help options for migraine sufferers, both free as well as fee-based consultations with a professional.

The free service can be found on Facebook, where we operate a migraine group that applies the principles of the Stanton Migraine Protocol® and guide migraine sufferers day by day how and what to do. We also have a support group of thousands of other migraineurs, some veterans and many new members, each of whom is ready and eager to help.

In addition, we also provide private one-on-one consultation by geographic area specialists. Please contact us for more information.

  1. I’d like to look at the diet before buying the book. Is that possible?

  2. I am curious of what this is about. Have had migraine since teens, now 56. Have eaten lowcarb for 5 months now. Meny things become better, but not less migraine

    1. Dear Doris,

      Thank you for your contact. Please join our Facebook migraine group here for detailed information. Eating low carbs is a great start, but is not sufficient. You will learn all of what’s needed in the group. There is also a book we recommend you read so you can learn about what migraine is, how it is caused and by what, and how to stop it and prevent it.

      There is also a testimonials page

      And I have been interviewed several times, some of which are linked below. Please watch these YouTube videos as well:

      I hope you join us on FB. If you prefer private consulting for a fee, that is also available. Please send email to Angela.

      Best wishes,

  3. Hello Angela Stanton.

    I would like your help. I am not on FB, and Will never be.

    Is the diet recipe to read and follow in Your book??

    Thanks in advance.
    Mette Stübert, Denmark.

    1. Hi Mette,

      Sorry, I received this post very delayed! There are no recipes or diet details much in the book. The book is an explanation of what migraine is and gives only details the foods you should not be eating. The focus of the book is the understanding of what migraine is. Most of the additional information is in the Facebook group or by by private consulting.

      Best wishes,

  4. Hello. I was referred by Dr. Robert Cywes for Dr. Stanton. I have consulted with Dr. Cywes for help with weight loss and the ketogenic diet. But I have had a few serious confusional migraines. He wanted me to check with Dr. Stanton to see if she agreed with the plan. I would be happy to set up a consult to discuss.
    Thank you, Liz

  5. I looked over your Facebook group. I have one question. By belonging to the group, would I be forbidden from using medications at home for migraine attacks? Thank you!

    1. Dear Kim,

      No, you absolutely need not stop any medication whatsoever! Some medications interact with ketosis, and so we ask for a waiver to be signed, and the name(s) of the medication(s) you are taking, so we can see any potential conflict either with ketosis or with the medications with each other. What migraineurs in my Facebook group find is that once they have applied the protocol, they stop getting migraines, so they taper off of their migraine medications with the help and support of their doctors. We help migraineurs taper off their medications, should they no longer need their medications, by providing a tapering schedule, which is to be approved by their doctor(s). For example, most people (not just migraineurs) get rid of all of their autoimmune conditions and also their thyroid, especially hypothyroidism and Hashimoto’s disease, seems to reverse on the very low carbohydrate ways of eating. So as their patients are getting healthier, their doctors prescribe reduced doses in regular intervals.

      In sum: the fact that migraineurs in the Facebook group are not taking medications is the consequence of not needing those medications, as decided by them or their doctors, and not by us.

      Best wishes,

  6. After looking at a few of the blog articles on your site,
    I truly appreciate your way of writing a blog. I book marked it to my bookmark site
    list and will be checking back in the near future.

    Edit: hehe, there is never a better feeling than editing a spammer’s comment into a positive one! Here is to you dear spammer!

  7. Hello, Does this protocol work for New Daily Persistent Headache? I have had a moderate to severe headache for one year. These are not attacks but persistent pain. Doctors are treating it like a migraine condition as there are no guidelines for treating NDPH.

    1. Dear Vera,

      Whether your headaches are migraine headaches is dependent on many factors: where in your head the pain hurts, how long it lasts, what type of pain (throbbing, dull, sharp, burning, etc.,) and what other symptoms you have. Migraine itself is not a “headache” per se at all. Migraine may come with a headache but it need not have to, so we cannot diagnose migraine based on a headache, which isn’t even necessary to have with a migraine. many doctors misdiagnose various headache types as migraines without giving it another thought.

      With this said and done, let’s keep all doors open and investigate further. I recommend you join the migraine group on Facebook for free help:
      Or if you prefer a private coaching session, please send me an email: and we will evaluate if what you have are migraines or something else.

      I am looking forward to helping you,

  8. Will this protocol help with vestibular symptoms as well? I am waiting on a specialist appointment at the end of January where I am anticipating a possible Vestibular Migraine/Meniere’s diagnosis. I have suffered with the stereotypical migraine “headaches” for decades until a concussion changed everything a few years ago.

  9. Hi Angela,

    I have been suffering for 6 weeks with a constant headache on my left temple and back of head. I have tried multiple treatments, osteo, physio, accupuncture, GP and nothing it helping. Painkillers don’t even touch it.
    I have joined the Facebook group but I have no idea where to even start. Please help me. What do I need to do?

    1. Dear Emily,
      Please post your questions in the group. There are 14k members in the group, imagine if I received 14k messages here a day. 
      When you ask this question in the group, one of the admins as well as many members, will give you guidelines where to start. The best place to start it to go back to the greeting message you received–see in the group where you are tagged. It has several links in that message for you to follow. 
      See you in the group,

    1. Dear Jamie,

      No I don’t recommend the ketogenic diet for migraine while the individual still gets migraines, and especially don’t recommend it if the person takes medications.
      I recommend the carnivore and the low carbs high fat diet, neither of which gets the person into ketosis.
      Ketosis can interact with some medications. Furthermore, the ketogenic diet may cause sugar crash to the migraine sufferer, whereas the carnivore of the LCHF won’t.
      So I recommend the ketogenic diet much later in the healing of the person.

      To learn more, please join my free Facebook group.

      Best wishes,
