    Is Propranolol Unique Or Can Other Beta Blockers Be Used For PTSD, Bad Memories etc...?

    There are lots of potential applications for this lipophilic and non-selective beta blocker. Can any other beta blockers be used or is it special? Metoprolol seems to be similar (although more selective and less lipophilic). Could it probably be substituted and work as well?

    Noradrenaline/norepinephrine- Good Guy, or Bad Boy?

    I have seen a lot of conversation on the form about how elevated noradrenaline is problematic and may be implicated in plenty of conditions. Yet, I have never heard peat say anything bad about noradrenaline, and even have seen a quote of him speaking favorably of it “It increases oxygen...

    Elevated serotonin (5-HT) and norepinephrine (NE) drive nightmares in PTSD

    More than a quarter of all military/veteran personnel are estimated to have some form/level of PTSD, regardless of whether those soldiers have seen combat or not (e.g. Coast Guard members also have high rates of PTSD). Despite the obvious link to severe stress, medicine continues to claim that...

    Stress Causes Grey Hair

    Not exactly news for most of my readers, but it is a popular topic for many people and, as usual, the response of most doctors is that the premature greying is genetically influenced and not much can be done about it. While the study below conclusively links greying to stress, I think the...

    High Norepinephrine Can Be Used To Diagnose Fibromyalgia

    Fibromyalgia is one of the "mysterious" spectrum disorders, which baffles doctors. There is no structural abnormality in muscle tissue and as a result many patients are treated as if the condition is a psychiatric one. It is known to be greatly exacerbated by stress, which is a convenient excuse...

    Stress (adrenaline, Noradrenaline) As The Main Driver Of Cancer Metastases

    I just posted a study in which it was shown that surgical removal of a tumor results in massive and uncontrolled formation of metastases across the entire organism. Universal Test For Cancer Progression/stage Here is the quote again, just to make the point of this thread clear. "...The...

    Androsterone Inhibits Catecholamines (Adrenaline / Noradrenaline)

    The neurosteroid androsterone has some very interesting properties, among which is potent GABA agonist activity. Most GABA agonists inhibit the synthesis and/or release of epinephrine (adrenaline) and norepinephrine (noradrenaline) in various animal models and in human trials. The studies below...

    Nicotine Withdrawals, Norepinephrine Increased

    Good study showing how adults get an increased spike in on administration in cardiac norepinephrine and another cardiac norepinephrine spike on withdrawal . It mentions smoking but like many studies on smoking they only use nicotine administration. Equally important, the long-term changes...

    Stress Is The Primary Driver Of Tumor Spread, By Promoting Inflammation

    Ray has written so much of the effects of stress on health and specifically on how chronic stress promotes energetic dysfunction and tumor formation/growth/spread. However, up until a year ago there was very little "official" research to back up his views. This study does just that, and it shows...

    Theanine Stops And Reverses The Stress Reaction (cortisol, Noradrenalin, Dopamine)

    Theanine seems more and more like a really good tool in the fight against stress. These two studies basically show that theanine should be able to stop the stress reaction in its tracks and also reverse whatever cognitive damage chronic stress exposure did to the organism. The major findings...

    Noradrenaline (and Likely Adrenalin) Increases Estrogen

    The mechanism is through activation of aromatase. Note the double hit - i.e. noradrenalin both increased the synthesis of estrogen through aromatase AND also decreased DHT synthesis through 5-AR. "...NE (10 microM) added to pineal organ cultures...
