    Pregnenolone (P5) blocks stress-induced anxiety, hypertension and cocaine cravings

    A great new study, and with humans too! As the study aptly demonstrates, the primary driver of cocaine cravings is likely stress and the anxiety it causes. This finding is another corroboration of the findings of the great Rat Park experiment/study on "addiction". In the study below, the...

    Lowering adrenaline as effective as opioids for severe/chronic pain

    Most of my readers know about the raging opioid abuse epidemic in Western countries. What most people do not know is that the bulk of the epidemic is not in usage of illegal opioids such as fentanyl, but in legally prescribed opioids such as methadone, oxycontin, and even morphine. There are...

    Gut bacteria overgrowth drives (cocaine) addiction; glycine can reverse it

    Yet another study highlighting the importance of the microbiome for our health, and suggesting again that there may be no such thing as truly beneficial bacteria. Any bacteria capable of colonizing our GI tract seems to be capable of causing pathology if it is allowed to proliferate without...

    Agmatine Is Wonder Drug (Endotoxins, Endorphins, Adrenaline, NO)

    As you can know agmatine is very interesting peaty chemical, but steel I want to show you some interesting and maybe less known articles Anti-endotoxin https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2923203/ "...agmatine treatment inhibited LPS-induced production of nitrates dose dependently.

    Progesterone may help quitting smoking

    A very interesting article, on a topic that has been studied for decades but has not seen much mainstream media exposure mostly because it does not fit the narrative. Namely, that "addictions", including smoking, are mostly genetically determined and not much can be done about them except manage...

    Estrogen promotes, progesterone inhibits drug (cocaine) abuse

    An interesting study, which not only exposes yet another negative side of estrogen but also demonstrates the opposing actions estrogen and progesterone have on the brain. The former is excitatory (by activating the glutamate system and inhibiting the GABA system) while the latter does the exact...

    Maternal SSRI/SNRI use leads to offspring addiction/withdrawal

    After being told for decades that SSRI/SNRI drugs are safe for usage during pregnancy, now the truth finally starts to come out. Well, technically it has been out for a long time considering the skyrocketing autism rates and the strong causal link between serotonin and autism. However, up until...

    Is lavender essential oil addictive? My friend says any sedative, the body adjusts to, making it addictive. Is this true? Thank you

    Most People Recover From "addiction" On Their Own

    We have discussed the issue of "addiction" many times on this forum. Starting with the "Rat Park" experiment in the 1970s, there have been numerous studies showing that "addiction" is nothing but a desperate attempt at self medication as a way to limit the effects of chronic stress. Addiction...

    Cancer Is NOT Addicted To Glucose, As Previously Thought

    Little by little, the lies about cancer told for over 100 years start to fall apart. One of the last strongholds of the "traditional" view on cancer is that it is "addicted" to glucose and eating a high-carb diet fuels tumor growth. Evidence to the contrary has actually been available for...

    Cancer Cells Develop "addiction" To Treatment; Stopping It Is Therapeutic

    This is the sad state the medical profession has reached. Over the last 5-7 years a number of studies have found that in many conditions stopping the active treatment actually improves the health of the person. This has been noted in a number of conditions, especially "autoimmune" ones (i.e. RA...

    Cocaine "addiction" May Be Driven By Serotonin

    Another study on addiction and its mechanisms, but this one focuses on cocaine which is the second most highly abused drug after alcohol, at least in the US (excluding weed). This new study shows that blocking the serotonin receptor 7 (5-HT7) blocked the cocaine abuse behavior. This would...

    Loneliness Increases Alcohol Tolerance, May Explain "addiction"

    I posted several studies in the past about the connection between stress hormones and "addiction", especially alcohol. This new study adds more evidence to that link and now also draws serotonin in the picture. Apparently, social creatures are much more sensitive to inebriation effects of...

    Stress Leads To Lower Dopamine And More Drinking

    The study was really on alcohol consumption what affects it. It has been known since the 1960s that people drink more when under stress but to this day mainstream medicine denies that there is a causative link between stress and substance abuse. I posted a few studies showing that "addicts" have...

    Estrogen Potentiates "addiction" Through The Endocannabinoid (CB1) Receptor

    Please do not take this as an attack on weed. I found this by accident while researching the similarities between estrogen and cocaine, which Ray has written about before. So, the study is really about estrogen and cocaine "addiction". I think the key takeaway is that the endocannabinoid...

    Dopaminergic Drugs Like Bromocriptine May Treat Alcoholilsm

    This study is interesting for several reasons. On one hand, it combines well with previous studies on addiction I posted about - i.e. that "addiction" is a physiological state in which a person attempts to mitigate the effects of "inescapable stress" as animal studies commonly call the issue...

    Vitamin D Is Dopaminergic And Decreases Obesity And Addiction Behaviors

    Over the last few years, I have posted studies on the forum showing that the vitamin E, A, and K all have dopaminergic activity that contributes to their positive effects on metabolism and health. This study discovered that vitamin D is another potent dopamine agonist, and that its dopaminergic...

    Achilles Heel Of Cancer Found - Its Addiction To Fat

    The public propaganda message has always been that cancer cells are addicted to glucose. As a result of that belief, one of the so-called "new wave" therapies in the treatment of cancer is to "starve" the cancer cells of glucose and hope that they die on their own. This usually has disastrous...

    Trouble Quitting Cannabis

    Hello, I'm a 45 year old (gasp) mom and my 'mother's little helper' is in the form of a vaporizer and weed which I'm told is organically grown. My usage amount varies but I usually do 2-3 cycles (like 10 puffs) once, sometimes twice, per day. I thought I could keep it under control but my...
