    Mainstream book/article links depression and authoritarianism with energy metabolism

    "We often think of depression is a mood disorder, but depression is also metabolic disorder – meaning that, fundamentally, there is something wrong with your metabolism and your energy regulation. When you experience depression, you don’t experience that metabolic difficulty directly; you...

    Cellular "memory" of stress can be passed on for 50+ generations

    There was a study that came out 2-3 years ago showing that when animals were exposed to a toxin, often the negative effects did not even manifest in the directly exposed organism but manifested in their offspring and were passed on for more than 14 generations. The study below now demonstrates...

    Hyperserotonemia confirmed as a cause of autism and insomnia

    Given the flood of recent studies lately, with virtually identical findings as the study below, I don't think much needs to be said. So much for "serotonin is the happiness hormone"...Yet despite the solid evidence implicating serotonin as a (if not THE) major cause of autism, even this study...

    DHT, not T, likely the "active" androgen in heart and brain

    Interesting study, done on baboons (so should have good relevance for humans), demonstrating that the cardiovascular system (CVS) exclusively accumulates and recognizes (at the receptor level) DHT, instead of testosterone (T). In fact, the androgen receptor in CVS is so structurally different it...

    Is this adult ADHD?

    Hello amazing community. I need help figuring out first what do i have. I started noticing in November last year I could not remember once a day a name of a person or a plant/object that was very familiar to me. I know I had to remember, it was a frustrating feeling of not being able to even...

    Childhood stress causes mental illness in adults by blunting androgens

    Yet another great study solidifying the evidence on just how detrimental early childhood stress is. It has been known for decades that childhood stress leads to early puberty, and that the latter is associated with greatly increased risk of chronic diseases later in life, as well as early death...

    Blocking PUFA/prostaglandins restores metabolism and reverses brain aging

    The bad news for PUFA has been accumulating for decades, yet public health authorities continue to claim that type of fat is "essential". Whatever indirect admissions of the pathological role of PUFA in both chronic and acute/infectious diseases is given to the public, is usually confined to the...

    Sugar (sucrose) lowers stress-induced cortisol

    Just a quick post to give some props to the much-vilified sucrose. The study below demonstrates that sucrose consumption for just 3 days prior, blunted most of the negative effects of stress, and especially the rise in plasma cortisol. The HED of sucrose was about 4g/kg, which matches closely...

    Aspirin Has Dramatically Lower Bleeding Risk Than Pharma Anticoagulants

    Just a quick post that adds to the mountain of evidence contradicting the fearmongering about aspirin we hear on a daily basis from every doctor who manages to get some TV time. It has been known for a while that aspirin lowers bleeding risk in brain and GI tract, despite being an anti-coagulant...

    How To Treat Leaky Blood-brain-barrier If One Is Sensitive To Caffeine Pill?

    So I believe that I have been suffering from leaky BBB. I saw some of the suggested solutions being chronic high caffeine level in the body. I have previously had serotonin toxicity issues and have had heart issues due to other chemicals (tretinoin) etc. I am sensitive to caffeine pill, ex. I...

    Alcohol Brain Damage Due To Iron Accumulation; Vitamin B1 To The Rescue

    Chronic alcohol abuse is highly detrimental to health and especially to the brain. Alcohol puts the body in a reductive state and depletes vitamin B1 (thiamine) stores. If the B1 deficiency becomes severe enough it manifests through what is clinically known as Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome (WKS)...

    Simply Inhaling Endotoxin (LPS) May Cause Parkinson Disease (PD)

    The role of endotoxin (LPS) in neurodegenerative diseases is becoming more and more recognized, despite claims by mainstream medicine that LPS only poses danger to people with severely compromised livers. However, even scientists that are aware of the causative role of LPS in those diseases...

    Progesterone - Not A Sex Hormone, But A Systemic Health Hormone

    An older study, but some great information in there. Not only does it call attention to the fallacy of progesterone being nothing more than a "sex" hormone, but it also warns about the fallacy of equating the synthetic progestins with bioidentical progesterone. At least, when it comes to...

    Food Emulsifiers And Endotoxin (LPS) Cause Brain Bleeding

    The study below is both ground-breaking and scary. Ground-breaking because it demonstrates yet another mysterious and potentially lethal disease - cavernous angioma (CA) - has a very simple explanation - endotoxin / LPS. Scary, because it refers to evidence that emulsifiers widely approved for...

    SSRI Drugs Strikingly Toxic For Fetal Brain, May Cause Autism

    As many forum users know, autism rates keep rising and even mainstream medicine has acknowledged that the condition is not genetic. There is significant evidence implicating serotonin overload during pregnancy, yet despite this solid and causative link doctors continue prescribing serotonergic...

    Restoring Metabolism Prevents / Reverses "permanent" Nerve Damage

    Yet another study demonstrating the crucial role cellular metabolism plays in pathological processes. While most of my posts deal with beneficial effects of improving OXPHOS on various chronic diseases, the study below demonstrates that the same may be true in acute pathologies such as traumatic...

    Emulsifiers Found In Most Commercial Foods Cause Brain Tumors, Hemorrhage, And Stroke

    A really interesting study that demonstrates how emulsifiers considered "benign" by the FDA/USDA and present in virtually all commercial food can actually cause quite a bit of damage to health. The study demonstrates that even a low-dose of a common commercial emulsifier Polysorbate 80 (P80)...

    Aspirin May Treat Brain Aneurysms

    Another huge win for aspirin, not only because of the condition's lethality, but because there is currently no treatment for it. While the study did not last long enough to make such claims, given the potent inhibitory effect on aneurysm growth I would not be surprised if aspirin actually makes...

    Using Psychedelics To "Reset The Brain"

    I come across study after study of Psilocybin, DMT, LSD being used to reset the brains of Depressed people, and help alcoholics, etc. I can obtain Mushrooms, LSD, and 5MEODMT, and want to use these in small amounts to see if they can help. How exactly are they purported to reset the brain though...
