    Serotonin (5-HT) is a key driver of asthma

    Yet another blow to the status of the so-called "happiness hormone". While histamine, acetylcholine, and estrogen have long been known as key drivers of asthma the link between the mast cells and the nervous system's production of the vasoconstrictor acetylcholine has remained unknown. The study...

    Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) Caused By Histamine And Serotonin

    I did not expect to see this statement in a mainstream science news outlet, but here it is below. I am starting to see a change in attitude towards serotonin but mainstream medicine is careful about its game. Somehow, the message about serotonin has now split into two separate, nonsensical ones...

    Estrogen And Histamine, Not HPV, Drive Cervical Cancer

    A few months ago, I did a post about a study which made the bold claim that estrogen instead of HPV is the actual cause of the (often deadly) cervical cancer. According to that study, HPV infection is at best permissive and at worst simply an (largely innocent) bystander. A statement like this...

    Iodine (kelp) For Clearing Histamine?

    Hi guys, I’d like to do a trial with iodine, since I’ve seen that it could help with clearing histamine and some symptoms that I believe are related to hypo, i.e. brain fog, dry skin and cold hands. Is supplementing with Kelp a good idea? It has 150mcg iodine. With that dosage is it necessary...

    Studies On Histamine's Effects

    I wanted to make a single thread for myself to post histamine related studies. As Peat himself is not a fan of histamine, lumping it together with things like cortisol and serotonin, I want to stick to one thread for all studies instead of posting them each as their own seperate thread in order...

    Anti-histamines May Prevent, Treat Melanoma

    About 2 years ago I did a post discussing the hypothesis that melanoma is an endocrine tumor, similar to breast cancer - i.e. driven by estrogen. In fact, if one has the time to dig into the published literature on all known malignancies, it quickly becomes apparent that virtually all cancers...

    Progesterone May Bind And Deactivate Endotoxin (LPS) Directly

    I made a few posts recently discussing the blocking effects of pregnenolone on TLR4 and TLR family receptors in general, and the reduction of systemic inflammation stemming from this blockade/regulation...

    Cancer Is A Metabolic Disease, Diet Is Its Drug

    This is perhaps the most stunning article to date I have seen in mainstream media (MSM). For more than 100 years the story has always been that cancer is a genetic disease due to mutations that turn cells into rampant killing machines. Now, one of the bastions of MSM - the mighty "Atlantic" -...

    Statins May Exert Beneficial Effects Through A Pathway Other Than It's Cholesterol Lowering Action

    Was surprised when saw a study showing statins have positive effects on bones, did a bit of searching and it turned out that it has some positive action,generally, through inhibiting rho kinase, which also is protective against heart disease. Im not promoting statin use at all(for obvious...

    Estrogen Causes Asthma; Progesterone, T, DHT, And DHEA Are Protective

    Most of the forum members probably know that the incidence of "autoimmune" conditions is much higher in women then in men. This fact gets consistently ignored by doctors working in the field as a mere fluke, or due to "unknown hormonal interactions" which are nonetheless deemed not causative of...

    Ketotifen May Treat Hashimoto's

    I am posting this study for those people who need an alternative to thyroid hormone treatment. This is a human study, so it is even more relevant for people with Hashimoto's. Given the main effects of ketotifen as a histamine and leukotriene antagonist, as well as some serotonin antagonism it...

    Ketotifen Prevents Skin Aging/wrinkles Due To UV Light

    Meet your new beauty ingredient - ketotifen. UV light exposure is one of the main triggers of visible signs of skin aging and contributes to lipofuscin formation as well. It looks like ketotifen may be able to prevent that damage and given its leukotriene and histamine antagonism it may be a...
