Doing research with migraine sufferers is unusually challenging since their most typical, meaningful age group for study is the 35-50 cohort, when people are in their prime career and child-rearing years. For this and various other reasons as well, clinical trials are practically impossible to conduct. However, beyond anecdotal evidence, well-designed scientifically sound surveys can lead to credible conclusions. The Stanton Migraine Protocol Inc., is in the process of applying for an ethical board approval to conduct rigorous surveys in the Facebook migraine group.

  1. Dear Angela,

    I am a full professor of Economics in the Netherlands and sufferer of migrraine for 35 years. Of which 5 years chronic migraine. When I hit 20 attacks per month and hardly could work anymore, I decided to review the scientific literature beyond the mainstream neurology. I managed to heal myself almost completely (I have 1-2 attacks per month now and often can do without a triptan). I just published a book about it (in Dutch).

    I would be interested in your research & book (I just donated and hoped to have access to the research page but I keep getting the question to donate (again) šŸ˜‰

    Best wishes, Irene van Staveren.

    1. Dear Irene,

      Thank you for your donation. Sorry, I removed your link since we don’t permit external links from our website. Our research page needs update for sure. Only we have very little time.

      You can find out more about my work here: and look at the testimonials: read my book (2nd edition): (I think in Netherlands the amazon link is different)

      join my Facebook migraine groups:

      and there are several interviews, both on YouTube as well as just podcasts. Here are a few YouTube video links:
      Dr. Shawn Baker and Zach Bitter:
      Biohackers Lab:
      The Ketogenic Girl:
      MeatRx with Dr. Shawn Baker:

      So you can learn a lot about the protocol and me–I recommend you start with the videos. If you would like to connect by email, feel free to send me an email at

  2. Hi Angela and Team,

    I am very interesting in obtaining information for migraines (causes, treatments etc). I have been dealing with Migraines (and cluster headaches) for close to 10yrs. It was through investigating the chronic headaches, I discovered I have MS too.
    You have mentioned previously that a great deal of information is visible on you FaceBook site – however, I do not (will not) use facebook or other forms of social media.
    Is there an alternative method for viewing this information?

    Many thanks in advance.


  3. I searched your site but cannot find any information on ocular migraine. I get the aura without migraine occasionally. I cannot seem to find any kind of trigger. I do take an electrolyte mixture most days . Do you have any help for these?

    1. Dear Betty,

      Please join the Facebook group here and also read the book Fighting The Migraine Epidemic: Complete Guide: How to Treat & Prevent Migraines Without Medicines.

      Taking electrolyte “mixture” is a problem. The only true electrolyte is salt in water, so any other stuff in the mix is a problem. Aura is a migraine prodrome but it can also be a migraine in itself without pain. In other words the pain is not migraine. It is a pain associated with most migraines but not all. Many people only have aura. There is no difference between aura and non-aura migraines. The underlying cause is the same, only the manifestation differs.

      You will find the Facebook migraine group extremely helpful with several thousand migraineurs all healing and learning how to prevent their migraines.

      Best wishes,
