I have also been following Angela Stanton directions for more than 2 years now via her Facebook group and after decades of regular migraines, i have no more migraine and am in the process of healing my insulin resistance. All that WITHOUT medication and as long as i have the right way of eating, i am fine. If you are a migraineur buy her book, it is full on but definitely worth it!
That is terrific to hear. Thank you Pascale!
Thank you for your work! Your book has been tremendously helpful to so many people.
My wife and I even have a copy of it, as she suffers (very infrequently) from migraines.
The success Cynthia has found from following your protocol speaks volumes to its effectiveness!
