    Varicocele personal experience: it is stress driven and is reversible

    Hello everyone, I feel a little bad for not making this post earlier. Just wanted to share my experience with this condition if it can help at least a few people to stop worrying about it. Up until I was 24 I did not have this problem, then at 25 it started to go downhill, started to develop a...

    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...

    Chronic Pain Relieved Greatly By Benadryl/diphenhydramine & Nightmares (story-time)?

    I'm including details here that I've never told anyone/written that much about to my knowledge, but all of it does not need to be read if you're not used to my extremely long, often (arguably) strange posts I make here. So I was going to post here about it (the pain), but figured it would be a...

    Serotonin Causes The Startle Response, And Likely PTSD As Well

    As my readers know, I have posted quite a few threads in the past on the topic of PTSD. It is a condition that affects up to 30% of current/former military members, and is considered a condition of unknown cause and without treatment. Current treatment options consist of mostly symptom...

    Parents’ Emotional Trauma May Change Their Children’s Biology

    Not a new idea, but the study is a nice summary of recent work in the area and demonstrates that the old gene-centric idea of inheritance is slowly being replaced by a much richer theory of how organisms interact with their environment and how they pass this information down to generations. It...

    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...

    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...

    High Cortisol And Low Testosterone Likely Drive PTSD

    As the article below states, 20%+ of service members come back with PTSD. It is a devastating mental condition that makes patients not only unable to participate meaningfully in society but often drives them to violent and homicidal/suicidal behavior. Given the roles of cortisol and serotonin in...

    Plant Cells Communicate A Stressful/traumatic Even Similar To Animals

    Peat has written many times in his articles about the long-distance communication among cells in a living organism. When a single cell is injured is sends a signal, which if strong enough, can traverse the entire organism. This mechanism is known to occur in animals yet medical science still...

    PTSD / Trauma Is Contagious, Can Be Transmitted Via Odor/pheromones

    This is an amazing study, which goes a long way in confirming what has been anecdotally known for centuries - bad experiences affect not only the individual experiencing them but everybody else this traumatized individual is in closed contact with. With one exception - psychopaths - who are...

    Emotional Response To Pain Is Driven By Serotonin And Prostaglandins

    I posted previously on how serotonin is required for the formation of traumatic memories. This process plays a major role in disorders like depression, PTSD, chronic anxiety and even schizophrenia. Serotonin Is Involved In The Formation Of Traumatic Memories This study shows that the activation...

    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...

Glutamine serves as the preferred fuel for the gut, liver, and immune cells and as a precursor for antioxidants. Trauma patients have low glutamine...
