    Adolescent stress causes mental illness, cognitive issues by lowering metabolism

    It has long been known that pre-natal stress (e.g. stressed of the mother during pregnancy), as well as chronic stress after birth are associated with high risk of mental illness, criminal behavior, substance abuse, reduced cognitive function, chronic illness, and even early death. However, the...

    Obesity is estrogen-driven; Chronic fasting burns mostly muscle, not fat

    I wanted to do a quick post on this, as this topic is one of the most discussed in both medicine and society in general. Namely, whether fasting is a good and healthy approach to weight loss, which is largely determined by whether the weight we lose during fasting is mostly fat or muscle. Even...

    Blocking serotonin (5-HT) stops withdrawal symptoms in addicts

    The role of 5-HT and other stress mediators such as cortisol, adrenaline, estrogen, prolactin, histamine, etc has long been suspected in both "addiction" and the withdrawal symptoms seen in virtually all "addicts" upon abstinence. The anti-adrenaline (and anti-cortisol) drug clonidine has been...

    Can Magnesium Raise Pregnenolone & Dhea Levels?

    Curious if this would help. Since adrenals are all connected? My pregnenolone levels came in lower AFTER supplementing 50 mgs of pregnenolone. My levels were at 85 now at 50. Also, I notice my vitamin D levels climb very slowly even after 10,000iu daily with K combination. So maybe my focus...

    Potatoes are the only thing that make my hands and feet warm but why?

    Hi, As the title says, this is the only way for me to get warm hands and feet in summer but in winter it works a lot less. My complete body will feel warm but it’s short term, or I have to eat the whole day potatoes but peat is against it? My temperature (under armpit for 10min) is 37.2 max...

    Hormonal birth control puts women in chronic stress, by blocking progesterone synthesis

    A truly remarkable study as it exposes so many lies that Big Pharma and its medical accomplices would rather not become public knowledge. Since most hormonal birth control (pills, patches, IUD, injections, etc) contain a combination of an estrogen and a synthetic progestin, it implicates both...

    Height is NOT genetic - UK's drastic drop in height due to austerity, poor diet

    A few years before the pandemic hit, I did a several posts on studies demonstrating that height is not genetically determined and that diet and environment play a much more important role. One of the big studies on that topic demonstrated that Dutch men gained ~20cm (~4in) of height in the last...

    Chronic stress doubles the weight gain from high-fat diets

    I am only posting this to demonstrate that the (in)famous claim so many doctors and dietitians and public health figures like to quote (calories in = calories out) does not hold and in fact body weight is heavily influenced by environmental conditions as well, such as chronic stress. As the...

    SIPPING sugar / sweetened water every 5 minutes for stress relief

    Sugars acute anti-stress property isnt just sugar itself, it's the sweetness signalling that creates rapid adjustment to CRH stress neurons (at first i thought that was due to the dopamine release , but that doesn't look likely actually) Corticotropin Releasing Hormone releases ACTH which...

    STUDY: Glycine may treat depression; MEDIA: Glycine may cause depression

    The level of misreporting in mainstream media is reaching criminal levels. For example, there have been many studies discovering that an increase in the activity of the serotonin transporter (SERT), which results in lower levels of extracellular serotonin, results in alleviation of depression or...

    Hair glucocorticoid levels predict future cardiovascular disease (CVD)

    Ever since we launched our hair/nail steroid analysis service couple of years ago, I have been seeing a steadily increasing number of studies on using hair/nail steroid analysis to predict future risk and also assess severity of (already existing) many chronic conditions. While most of the...

    Why I think men/males go bald (recede), but females/women rarely do

    Okay, so I've been thinking of this -- and although it's not based solely on any scientific analysis or even deep knowledge -- it is a theory of mine I don't think I've seen anyone else postulate. This is a fairly long post -- & I don't have the "linguistics" to define every idea I have super...

    Chronic stress causes depression by depleting allopregnanolone

    This is perhaps one of the very few articles that directly makes the claim that stress can, by itself, cause mental illness. All official information "sources" on mental disease etiology claim that stress by itself is neither a necessary nor a sufficient cause. If stress has any role, the...

    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...

    Serotonin (5-HT) drives fear and conditions such as anxiety/PTSD

    Conversely, blocking 5-HT or lowering its synthesis can probably cure most fear-based conditions such as generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), PTSD, psychotic conditions (e.g. schizophrenia), etc. At least, those are the findings of the study below, which demonstrated that animals completely...

    Harvard Psychiatrist: All Mental Disease is Metabolic/Bioenergetic Disease

    It is always nice to see mainstream medicine plagiarize from Dr. Peat attempt to right its course after decades-long mistakes. While the genetic dogma still rules supreme in medicine's attitude towards most "physical" diseases, the utter failure of the "serotonin hypothesis" and its dear...
