    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.

    Glucose + vitamin B3 combo synergistic for treating mitochondrial disease

    A very interesting study, which demonstrates the unique synergy between glucose and vitamin B3 in treating deficiencies of function in Complex I & II of the electron transport chain (ETC). Deficiencies on those metabolic steps are the most common causes for the wide varieties of debilitating...

    The Social Fabric In Western Countries May Be Unraveling

    In one of Peat's recent newsletters he mentioned that there is an epidemic of mental disease in the population because the evil system these people live is preventing them from living their lives "meaningfully, creatively". A recent study corroborated Peat's writings on the truly abysmal state...

    Hypothyroidism Can Cause Anxiety, Panic Attacks And Other Mental Issues

    One of the few studies that is at least attempting to frame mental health issues in terms of endocrinology. More specifically, the study below demonstrated that people with Hashimoto disease have drastically increased rates of anxiety, panic attacks and risks for other mental health disorders...

    Virtually All Patients With Depression Are Hypothyroid

    It does not get much better than what this study found. More than 2/3 of mildly depressed patients and basically all moderately and severely depressed ones has low T3 levels. TSH was elevated in almost 55% of the patients. As the study says, this widespread prevalence of sub-clinical...

    Hepatitis B Vaccine In Infants Linked To Subsequent ADHD

    The study only looked at the older version of the HepB vaccine, which contained thimerosal. So, it would be interesting to see a study on the newer vaccine, which uses "only" aluminium as adjuvant. I bet the effects won't be much different as aluminium is just as toxic to the nervous system. A...

    High Lactate May Be The Cause Of Major Psychiatric Disorders

    The study itself has a misleading title because there are quite a few situations that can result in lower brain pH (and thus high acidity). High levels of CO2 can also cause low brain pH levels, but as I posted in a few other studies drugs that raise CO2 levels can actually treat mental disease...

    High Cortisol / Testosterone Ratio As A Likely Cause Of PTSD

    As the study below says the role of cortisol (C) in mood disorders has been known for more than 30 years. Cortisol's role in depression, schizophrenia, bipolar, and eating disorders is well known even in mainstream psychiatry and many of the new drugs in pharma pipeline are aimed at suppressing...

    Insulin Resistance As An Endocrine Disorder

    This argument has flared up so many times on this forum and I doubt we have reached any agreement. I am on the side that insulin resistance and obesity are endocrine disorders. There is a group here that maintains that it is the obesity that really triggers it all. This study discusses some of...

    Methylene Blue As A Treatment For Manic Depressive Psychosis

    The study was on bipolar disorder psychosis, which is different from the psychosis in conditions like schizophrenia. The psychosis of bipolar disorder is believed to be caused by cortisol, and since methylene blue helped then it suggests methylene blue can lower excessive cortisol. This is not...

    A Selenium Compound May Treat Bipolar Disorder

    Back in the 1960s and 1970s there was a great interest in using selenium as a treatment for a number of inflammatory conditions, as well as damage caused by stroke and heart attacks. However, that enthusiasm was quickly dampened when the studies discovered that using high doses of selenium had...
