Her current research focuses 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. As a result of the success of the first edition of her book and her helping over 5,000 migraineurs worldwide successfully prevent their migraines, she published the 2nd (extended) edition of her migraine book Fighting the Migraine Epidemic: Complete Guide: How to Treat & Prevent Migraines Without Medications (2017). Angela is an avid sports fan, currently power weight lifting and kickboxing. For relaxation, she paints and photographs and loves to spend time with her husband of 45 years, two sons and their wives, and two granddaughters.
