Lowering/blocking serotonin is therapeutic for cancer

One of the few studies that is brave enough to point the finger directly at serotonin as a tumor-promoter. Mainstream medicine has acknowledged that serotonin has a growth-promoting effects, but only in one specific tumor – carcinoid syndrome – and refuses to admit that the same growth-promoting mechanisms may manifest in other tumor types as … Read more

Hyperserotonemia confirmed as a cause of autism and insomnia

Given the flood of recent studies lately, with virtually identical findings as the study below, I don’t think much needs to be said. So much for “serotonin is the happiness hormone”…Yet despite the solid evidence implicating serotonin as a (if not THE) major cause of autism, even this study did not dare mention blocking serotonin … Read more

Blocking the endotoxin receptor (TLR4) may prevent / treat hearing loss

I did a post a few months ago on the connection between tinnitus and serotonin – i.e. using anti-serotonin drugs may treat tinnitus. Since tinnitus is almost always a precursor state to hearing loss (and eventually deafness), the two conditions obviously go hand-in-hand and are likely caused by the same agent (e.g. serotonin). Since more … Read more

Depression fades away when serotonin levels drop

A very, very inconvenient study for mainstream medicine and its Big Pharma goons. The so-called “serotonin hypothesis” is slowly crumbling and the results from the most recent studies are so unequivocal that the fraud about serotonin as the “happiness hormone” may go down in history as one of the most open and grotesque examples of … Read more

Many people may suffer from chronic serotonin syndrome

A very interesting article, which calls out the widespread usage of serotonergic drugs (usually SSRI), and argues that their widespread use may have created an “epidemic” of a chronic, milder version of the (in)famous serotonin syndrome (SS). Currently, mainstream medicine does not recognize chronic SS as a condition, and most ER doctors are inadequately trained … Read more

Serotonin and oxytocin promote gullibility, trainability, and servility

A great study, which while done with horses, will probably raise questions (unfortunately only in people with already-low serotonin) of whether the relentless promotion of serotonin (5-HT) as the “happiness hormone” and oxytocin as the “love and connection hormone” has any evidence in support. According to the study, the horses with the lowest serotonin levels … Read more

Serotonin (5-HT) is a key driver of asthma

Yet another blow to the status of the so-called “happiness hormone”. While histamine, acetylcholine, and estrogen have long been known as key drivers of asthma the link between the mast cells and the nervous system’s production of the vasoconstrictor acetylcholine has remained unknown. The study below demonstrates that the release of serotonin (5-HT) from mast … Read more

Serotonin may be the “aggression hormone” in most living organisms

So much for the “happiness hormone”, which medicine keeps telling us should be kept as high as possible. This idiotic hypothesis gave birth to an entire drug industry, which continues to poison people to this day with its SSRI drugs, despite solid evidence that they are no better than placebo, do not reduce depressive symptoms, … Read more

Serotonin promotes (futile) patience and (false) faith in future rewards

This study alone explains so much of the pathological behavior seen in humans living in developed countries. Namely, the vast majority of them are willing to break their backs working and “delaying gratification” in the hopes that one day they will “make it” and all of their efforts will be generously rewarded. Of course, this … Read more

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 demonstrating that hallucinations (indistinguishable from those in … Read more
