    Trying to Help my Mom (Hypothyroidism)

    For some years now my mom has been taking Levothyroxine (T4) for her hypothyroidism. She is also bipolar and takes Risperidone and Valcote (sodium valproate). She is pretty functional and active but the main problem that I see is that she sleeps a lot, anywhere from 10 to 12 hours every night...

    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...

    Covid prions, or nah? Also: How are you taking care?

    Hi everyone, I'm curious to know your thoughts on whether COVID-19 (the virus, not the v@><) will later cause prion disease in the infected? I've seen the theories that the v@>< will lead to prion disease, but what about the virus itself? If we avoid the jab and end up contracting (or if we...

    Specific advice / a funny predicament.

    Hi! I've made a few posts before but I'd like to keep it short and ask for specific advice. Apologies in advance for my weird English. As you can imagine, it's not my mother tongue, haha. LATER-EDIT: I guess you can ignore the ''keeping it short'' part. I'm a 23 year old male, 1,83cm tall...

    The biggest missing links to optimal brain function – part 1

    What inspired me to write this article is overall reductionism when it comes to mental function. Far too many people want to focus on specific neurotransmitters and blame certain ones for certain conditions (e.g. low dopamine in anhedonia), but health as a whole started to deteriorate first, and...

    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...

    Blocking Serotonin, Adrenaline Treats Anxiety, Brain Damage Due To Alcohol "addiction"

    Over the last 2 decades a large number of studies have come out demonstrating that the withdrawal symptoms in "addicts" are due largely due to elevated serotonin and adrenaline. As such, drugs such as cyproheptadine, clonidine, propranolol, etc have been successfully used off-label for treating...

    Half Of Millennials And 75% Of Gen Zers May Be Mentally Ill

    The bad news for the chronologically young just keep accumulating. About a week ago I posted another study demonstrating that, if current trends continue, Millenials will die earlier than their Gen X counterparts due to poor(er) health. That study was aggregate and included all sorts of reasons...

    Psychiatric Diagnoses Are 'worthless', Most Mental Illness Stems From Stress (trauma)

    It is rare to see a study like the one below that does not hold anything back and exposes psychiatry for what it really is - fraud. Well, the exact words used were a "disingenuous categorical system" but words like "worthless" and "meaningless" were also used freely. In summary, psychiatry is a...

    There Is No "Depression Gene", Any "evidence" So Far Has Been Errors / Fraud

    I did not think that I would see such a brave post appear on the front page of "Science" magazine, but here it is below. Apparently, common sense is finally starting to prevail in psychiatry and some doctors have had enough with the whole genetics fraud. They published a paper arguing that not...

    Blocking Stress (adrenaline) Just Once Cures PTSD And Maybe Any Mental Disorder

    This is a remarkable study, which once again implicates extreme stress in the pathology of mental health disorders, specifically anxiety and PTSD. Just a few days ago I posted a study showing a high cortisol (C) / testosterone (T) ratio is likely causative in PTSD. People with high C/T ratio...

    Pregnenolone Advances As A Treatment For Loneliness In Humans

    Mental Illness Is Skyrocketing In The World’s "happiest" Countries

    I am sure many forum members have heard of the Nordic "wonders" - widely publicized studies purportedly showing that Nordic countries have really low incidence of mental illness, score high on various (and arbitrary) "happiness" indices, have high quality of life, low crime rates, etc, etc...

    Allopregnanolone May Soon Be Approved As A Fast-acting Antidepressant

    The patents on most SSRI drugs have either expired or are close to expiration. Lately, there have also been a number of high profile cases obtaining favorable court outcomes by blaming SSRI drugs for a host of human criminal behaviors or adverse health events. As such, Big Pharma is desperate to...

    Dietary Nitrates Can Cause Mania After Just Two Weeks Of Consumption

    As many forum users already know dietary nitrates are an effective precursor to nitric oxide (NO). NO has been reliably linked to mania in humans, and mania is a known side effect of drugslike Viagra or nitroglycerin, but so far the official claim is that dietary nitrate intake does not cause...

    The Financial Crisis In 2008 Increased Obesity, Diabetes And Mental Illness
