What is the Stanton Migraine Protocol?

Stanton Migraine Protocol Inc. (SMP) is a scientific research-backed nonprofit organization originated by world renowned Neuroeconomist and migraine expert Angela Stanton, PhD.

Stanton Migraine Protocol is a comprehensive approach dedicated to helping those with migraines gain greater control of their lives without the use of harmful medications.

Migraines are primarily caused by a genetic dysfunction in the brain's energy metabolism and electrolyte balance, which can be influenced by certain lifestyle and dietary habits.

The protocol focuses on the correlation between diet and the brain, including altering dietary practices like shifting to a high fat, low carbohydrate diet that is also low in sugar and eliminates key things known to prompt migraines, like aged cheese, coffee and chocolate.

The foundational elements of SMP is supplementing with necessary electrolytes like sodium, magnesium, and potassium.

Dr. Stanton’s Education and Research

A migraine sufferer since childhood, Dr. Stanton has a keen and personal interest in neuroscience. With a doctorate in Economics and a dissertation in neuroscience, which together created the field of Neuroeconomics, her post-doctoral research was conducted at the Max Planck Institute in Germany.

Leader in the Field of Migraine Research

Dr. Angela Stanton believes the root cause of migraines is an electrolyte imbalance created by glucose sensitivity, so she focuses on the correlation between diet and the brain.  

Educator and Author

Dr. Stanton has a thorough understanding of the influence of neurons and hormones on mental and physiological functioning. Now an educator and author, her research continues as she strives to help those impacted by migraine, having already assisted thousands of migraine sufferers around the world.

Hot Tips from Angela

Migraines are not a woman-only condition. Men and children as young as 2 years old also have migraines.  

The keys to migraine prevention: Enough water, more salt, and less sugar.  

The pharmaceutical path to migraine prevention comes with a host of adverse effects extending from brain fog and neurological issues to heart problems.

Migraine is genetically determined, and the migraine brain is hypersensitive, which depletes the brain of nutrients and energy.  

Glucose is the main trigger for migraines, which means that carbohydrates present problems for migraineurs and strengthens the argument for a low-carb diet.
