Cardiolipin supplementation may reverse signs of aging

One of the key features of aging is the decline in mitochondrial function (metabolism), and that fact is widely recognized even by mainstream medicine. However, doctors still claim that the relationship between metabolic decline and aging has not be elucidated and a causative link cannot be established (yet). In other words, we don’t know if … Read more Cardiolipin supplementation may reverse signs of aging

Food emulsifiers and endotoxin (LPS) cause brain bleeding

The study below is both ground-breaking and scary. Ground-breaking because it demonstrates yet another mysterious and potentially lethal disease – cavernous angioma (CA) – has a very simple explanation – endotoxin / LPS. Scary, because it refers to evidence that emulsifiers widely approved for use in the food industry and even in foods with the … Read more Food emulsifiers and endotoxin (LPS) cause brain bleeding

Blocking serotonin treats fatty liver disease (NAFLD / NASH)

The bad news for serotonin just keeps on coming. Just minutes ago I posted about serotonin turning people into violent criminals, and being the actual cause of depression instead of its cure (as FDA and Big Pharma would have you believe). Now, the study below adds another pathology that is caused by serotonin – the … Read more Blocking serotonin treats fatty liver disease (NAFLD / NASH)

Ketamine cures depression by reducing serotonin, increasing dopamine

As many of my readers know, FDA recently approved the party drug ketamine (known as Special-K on the street) as a rapidly-acting antidepressant. The rapid antidepressant effects of ketamine have been known since the 1960s but FDA denied that those effects are relevant in humans and refused to consider “scheduled” illicit drugs for therapeutic uses. … Read more Ketamine cures depression by reducing serotonin, increasing dopamine

Reducing stress may reverse greying of hair

Just a few weeks ago I made a post about yet another study linking grey hair to increased stress. The mechanism of action described in that study was increased HPA activity and specifically elevated norepinephrine levels. Other studies have also implicated tryptophan/serotonin, which is still consistent with the stress hypothesis as serotonin is perhaps the … Read more Reducing stress may reverse greying of hair

SSRI drugs increase violent behavior and promote recidivism

Despite decades of animal research demonstrating how elevated serotonin in general, and SSRI drugs in particular, turn animals into homicidal, vicious creatures, (and are actually the cause of depression and not the cure for it) mainstream medicine continues to deny that such scary effects are possible in humans. Recent studies demonstrating loss of empathy in … Read more SSRI drugs increase violent behavior and promote recidivism

Estrogen, not androgens, may be the cause of baldness

A quick post about a study calling into question yet another dogma in medicine – i.e. that the “evil” androgens (especially DHT) are the causes of men losing their hair and getting prostate cancer. So, the “solution” modern medicine proposes is “chemical castration” with drugs like finasteride, dutasteride, flutamide, bicalutamide, etc that render men impotent, … Read more Estrogen, not androgens, may be the cause of baldness

High-carb (65%-85%) diets therapeutic in diabetes

Another myth of mainstream medicine continues to (slowly) crumble. The myth of diabetes as the “sugar disease” may be still alive but the evidence against it is quickly mounting. Perhaps the only thing still preventing it from collapsing overnight is the large numbers of Paleo-diet supporters who currently dominate the blogosphere and serve as a … Read more High-carb (65%-85%) diets therapeutic in diabetes

Anti-histamines may prevent, treat melanoma

About 2 years ago I did a post discussing the hypothesis that melanoma is an endocrine tumor, similar to breast cancer – i.e. driven by estrogen. In fact, if one has the time to dig into the published literature on all known malignancies, it quickly becomes apparent that virtually all cancers can be classified as … Read more Anti-histamines may prevent, treat melanoma

Mad cow disease may be a mitochondrial/metabolic issue

Peat has mentioned the Creutzfeldt-Jacob disease (CJD) / BSE in several of his articles and interviews and has explained how environmental stress, estrogen, PUFA, ionizing radiation, etc can cause metabolic derangements resulting in the same brain damage so characteristic of this pathology. The public is more familiar with that pathology under the name of mad … Read more Mad cow disease may be a mitochondrial/metabolic issue
