    Vitamin B6, lowering stress, may treat schizophrenia

    Both human and animal studies. The human study was with pyridoxamine - a vitamin B6 isomer declared by FDA to be a "prescription drug" and as such banned for OTC sale in USA while still being widely available in most other countries. That FDA ruling is pointless due to the fact that pyridoxamine...

    Serotonin may cause schizophrenia, Parkinson, and Alzheimer diseases

    One by one, medical myths (slowly) go the way of the Dodo. Two of the most pervasive such myths are that psychotic conditions like schizophrenia are caused by excess dopamine, and Parkinson Disease (PD) is caused by a deficiency of dopamine. Unbeknownst even to most doctors, studies exist...

    Could The Covid-'Vaccine' Make Females Infertile?

    Dr. Wolfgang Wodarg raised this question. Corona viruses use spike proteins to get entry to the cell. The mRNA covid-'vaccines' are designed to make your cells produce something like these spike proteins, and this shall encourage the body to produce antibodies against those spike proteins...

    How To Treat Leaky Blood-brain-barrier If One Is Sensitive To Caffeine Pill?

    So I believe that I have been suffering from leaky BBB. I saw some of the suggested solutions being chronic high caffeine level in the body. I have previously had serotonin toxicity issues and have had heart issues due to other chemicals (tretinoin) etc. I am sensitive to caffeine pill, ex. I...

    Chronic Stress (adversity) Lowers Dopamine And Causes Mental Illness

    The evidence for the role of chronic stress in virtually every health condition doctors have a name for just keeps on accumulating. Unfortunately, even in this latest study the scientists keep insisting that there is some mysterious and unquantifiable difference between chronic stress...

    Dietary Niacinamide (B3) Deficiency May Be A Cause Of Schizophrenia

    As many of my readers know, the link between niacinamide and schizophrenia dates back at least the 1950s and possibly much earlier. The late Abram Hoffer, one of the founders of the orthomolecular approach, was convinced that stress was a huge factor in mental illness and ran several successful...

    A Selective Serotonin Antagonist Is A Potent Antidepressant

    Fraud, fraud and nothing but fraud! After more then half a century of claiming that serotonin cures depression, now mainstream medicine is quietly trying to retreat from this fiasco by introducing more and more potent (and selective) serotonin antagonists as treatment of depression and silently...

    Pregnenolone Is A Potent (functional) Endotoxin (TLR4) Antagonist

    It seems that pregnenolone is finally starting to look exciting to the medical industry. In addition for its intensive studies for a variety of mental issues, now studies are coming out demonstrating its endotoxin (LPS) antagonism effects. As most forum users know, endotoxin exerts its effects...

    Marijuana May Cause Psychosis/schizophrenia By Increasing Serotonin Signalling

    I know the topic of weed is controversial but by now the link between heavy and chronic marijuana use and the risk of psychotic conditions like schizophrenia has been well established. Peat mentioned a few times briefly that cannabis has anti-androgenic effects and should not be used chronically...

    Schizophrenia Treatment Could Be As Simple As Reducing Ammonia

    I posted a number of studies on Ceylon cinnamon and its metabolite sodium benzoate, showing their benefit in Parkinson disease, depression and anxiety. While all of those studies were on animal models, the toxicity of ammonia in the brain is undisputed and its role in all of these disease has...

    Intrusive / Unwanted Thoughts Due To Low GABA Signalling

    Peat has mentioned GABA quite a few times in his articles and its role as the chief inhibitory signal in the body, protecting both brain cells and peripheral tissues/organs from excitotoxicity caused by PUFA, glutamate, estrogen, stress, etc. But the role of GABA is especially prominent in the...

    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...

    B Vitamins Help Schizophrenia

    While this was a meta study it is still significant because it looked at quite a few OTC supplements and found only the B-family of vitamins to have a positive effect. The effects of vitamin and mineral supplementation on symptoms of schizophrenia: a systematic review and meta-analysis |...

    Taurine May Treat Depression And Psychosis In Humans

    A human study, and as such very relevant. The dose (4g daily for 12 weeks) was a bit on the high end but that was probably because the scientists designing the trial were unaware of the studies showing benefits of taurine plateau after 2g daily. In any event, good news for those with mood/mental...

    Add-on Pregnenolone With L-Theanine To Antipsychotic Therapy Relieves Negative And Anxiety Symptoms

    Pregnenolone May Protect Cognition From Damage By Stress

    The study was actually on how stress damages cognition, and based on another study I posted and the drug used in the study to block the effects of stress I inferred that pregnenolone would work just as well. The study discovered that the release of CRF / CRH as part of the stress response is...

    Schizophrenia / Psychosis Linked To Traumatic Experience And Stress

    I have suspected this for a long time, but the official version to this day is that schizophrenia is primarily a gene-driven disease linked to a "misbehaving" cluster of about 300 genes. The fact that most of these genes are related to serotonin metabolism is considered, of course, irrelevant to...

    Anti-serotonin, Pro-dopamine Drug Approved For Psychosis And Bipolar Disease

    After more than 5 decades of claiming that psychosis conditions like schizophrenia are caused by excessive dopaminergic activity and depression is a deficiency of serotonin, big pharma is doing 180 degrees reversal. A new drug was just approved for treating bipolar disorder and schizophrenia in...

    Nitric Oxide (NO) May Be A Causative Factor In Schizophrenia

    I am always pleased to see studies like this as they indicate that at least in some medical circles common sense has not left the building. If the study below is correct, it would explain the beneficial effects on schizophrenia of substances like glycine, famotidine, minocycline, pregnenolone...
