    Just a week-long break from social media alleviates anxiety and depression

    I don't think this study will come as a surprise to my readers, but it still helps to have some peer-reviewed evidence confirming what many people intuitively sense, yet are afraid to verbalize due to FOMO or being ostracized - i.e. social media, and digitization in general, is a bane on human...

    Higher PUFA intake correlated with mental disease

    An epidemiological study, yet still useful IMO since the correlation was maintained across the various levels of PUFA intake - i.e. the higher the PUFA intake the higher the prevalence of a mental disorder such as depression, which suggests a causal link. The link was the strongest in males and...

    Dopamine agonists can treat anhedonia

    The title may sound obvious to many, but this study is one of the few to bring up the taboo topic of serotonin's role in symptoms of depression. The current dogma still holds that raising serotonin levels (or activating its receptors) is the most beneficial mechanism to treating depression and...

    Young people are lonelier than ever

    The actual title of the article, covering recent studies about loneliness rates in Western populations. It dispels the convenient excuse that the "pandemic" is what caused this true epidemic of loneliness by showing those rates were high years before any talk about virus/lockdown entered the...

    PUFA cause obesity, diabetes, autism, Alzheimer's disease, anxiety, and depression

    The title is an actual quote from the article, so there is no editorializing on my part and it speaks volumes about how the authors feel about their findings. In addition, opposite effects were found for saturated fats, in this case coconut oil, which leads the authors to once again remind...

    Why Sleep Deprivation Eases Depression

    Wake therapy, a specific application of intentional sleep deprivation, encompasses many sleep-restricting paradigms that aim to address mood disorders with a form of non-pharmacological therapy. Wake therapy was first popularized in 1966 and 1971 following articles by Schulte and by Pflug and...

    Elevating the level of hypoxia inducible factor may be a new potential target for the treatment of depression

    فاکتور 1 القایی هیپوکسی (HIF-1) یک فاکتور رونویسی است که بیان ژن را در پاسخ به کاهش سطح اکسیژن در بافت یا هیپوکسی تنظیم می کند. HIF-1 با واسطه در متابولیسم میتوکندری و در نتیجه کاهش استرس اکسیداتیو اثرات محافظتی در برابر هیپوکسی اعمال می کند. اخیراً، افزایش سطح استرس اکسیداتیو و متابولیسم...

    Horrible depressive side effects from melatonin

    I just ran out of the melatonin (3 mg) I’ve been taking for 3 months now. I kind of suspected it might be making me sluggish but I kept taking it because I wanted to be knocked out to go to sleep. The past two mornings without taking it the night before I’ve woken up not feeling like a train hit...

    High (extracellular) serotonin causes Alzheimer's and depression

    The utter corruption of "journalism" is once again on full display in MSM. The actual scientific study is very clear in its statements/conclusions that a decrease in the levels of serotonin transporter (5-HTT) led to accumulation of beta-amyloid and onset of depression. Lower levels of 5-HTT -...

    I've Never Felt So Alone

    Checking in from Ontario Canada to... rant? Per the title of the thread: I've literally never felt this alone. I'm 25/F, and have been told by my job (online work, small team, not customer facing) if I don't get the vaccine by the end of next month, I'm done. My partner is currently with me in...

    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...

    Can SSRIs help someone who is depressed

    I've been following raypeat ideas for some time now and I know that he is against serotonin, but I'm desperate and I've did some research about SSRIs and from my understanding they don't raise the production of serotonin in the body like tryptophan and 5-htp do, but they keep the serotonin...

    Children anti-depressants, 231,791 prescriptions UK in 2020

    Western nations are really destroying themselves at this rate, kids at 5 years of age and up getting prescribed SSRI’s, the medical establishment needs to reeled in ASAP. COVID was the excuse used to justify this, it’s driven by profit margins for big pharma, the parents must be stupid, it’s...

    What causes narcissism?

    Good Afternoon, After encountering a compulsive, narcissistic liar on this forum, I am wondering: What causes narcissism? Are there hormones involved. I‘d like to hear the „peaty“ view on this. Thank you, my fellow beardy peatarians.

    AlloP - Liquid Allopregnanolone For Lab/R&D

    Just a quick announcement that we have replaced the 5α-DHP in our store with allopregnanolone. The main reason for switching over to allopregnanolone is that we always wanted to provide that steroid right from the start, however we could not find a lab willing to synthesize it. Thus, 5α-DHP...

    High PTH, low vitamin D implicated in bipolar disorder (BD)

    A great study highlighting once again the importance of calcium, vitamin D and especially the pro-inflammatory parathyroid hormone (PTH) for mental health. While there are many studies (both observational and intervention ones) examining the role of vitamin D in mental health, this is one of the...

    Depression fades away when serotonin levels drop

    A very, very inconvenient study for mainstream medicine and its Big Pharma goons. The so-called "serotonin hypothesis" is slowly crumbling and the results from the most recent studies are so unequivocal that the fraud about serotonin as the "happiness hormone" may go down in history as one of...
