    Stress causes/exacerbates allergies, pregnenolone/progesterone therapeutic

    Yet another studies demonstrating the "controversial" link between stress and a condition doctors insist has nothing to do with stress or hormones in general. This time the culprit is CRF/CRH, which is the initial step in the "stress" cascade and is now known to be implicated in conditions such...

    A Proposed Anabolic Mechanism Of Tribulus Terrestris (TT)

    Some people on the forum like @Wagner83 myself and a few others have tried the infamous herb TT with the hope of raising androgens and improving body composition. Despite Wikipedia bashing TT and raising doubts about its effectiveness, there is plenty of evidence from human trials shows the herb...

    PTSD / Trauma Is Contagious, Can Be Transmitted Via Odor/pheromones

    This is an amazing study, which goes a long way in confirming what has been anecdotally known for centuries - bad experiences affect not only the individual experiencing them but everybody else this traumatized individual is in closed contact with. With one exception - psychopaths - who are...

    PUFA Initiate & Promote The Stress Response (ACTH/cortisol), SFA Inhibit It

    Almost two years ago I posted a study showing that PUFA can stimulate cortisol release even in the absence of ACTH. Pufa Stimulates Cortisol Production Even In The Absense Of Acth However, that study above did not look at the effects of saturated fatty acids (SFA) and I keep getting emails...

    Chronic Stress During Pregnancy Accelerates Fetal Aging And Harms Its Health

    Allopathic medicine still denies that maternal stress during pregnancy affects the child's long term health. If anything, they say that the fetus may experience a slightly increased risk of infection during pregnancy but that risk goes back normal as soon as the baby is born. The main argument...

    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...

    Aspirin Treats Depression By Lowering Cortisol And Inflammation

    This was an animal study but it follows a long thread of other studies and some of them with humans. Unfortunately, so far all of the human studies used aspirin only as an adjuvant but hopefully as new studies like the one below continue to appear the opinion on aspirin will change. Ray has...

    Pregnenolone May Protect Cognition From Damage By Stress

    The study was actually on how stress damages cognition, and based on another study I posted and the drug used in the study to block the effects of stress I inferred that pregnenolone would work just as well. The study discovered that the release of CRF / CRH as part of the stress response is...

    Pregnenolone Is The Most Potent Inhibitor Of The Stress Signal (CRH)

    I think this study should finally put to rest the arguments and debates of whether pregnenolone raises or lowers cortisol, and how it affects the stress response overall. I posted a similar study, which showed that the pregnenolone metabolites progesterone and allopregannolone potently inhibited...

    Estrogen Potentiates The Effects Of Chronic Stress

    A very, very important study, confirming Peat's views on how estrogen participates in the stress response manifested by release of CRF/CRH, ACTH, cortisol and adrenaline. Unfortunately, the public press release is misleading and many will take away the message that both estrogen and progesterone...
