Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) caused by histamine and serotonin

I did not expect to see this statement in a mainstream science news outlet, but here it is below. I am starting to see a change in attitude towards serotonin but mainstream medicine is careful about its game. Somehow, the message about serotonin has now split into two separate, nonsensical ones – i.e. there are … Read more Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) caused by histamine and serotonin

Activation of the endotoxin receptor (TLR4) may cause hearing loss

There is currently an epidemic of tinnitus (ear ringing) and hearing loss in virtually all developed countries. Experts are scratching heads and are failing to come up with a reason/explanation for this epidemic. As it often happens, the cause is often hidden in plain sight and if one follows the clues and the available evidence, … Read more Activation of the endotoxin receptor (TLR4) may cause hearing loss

Parkinson Disease (PD) may begin in the gut

The article below is one of at least 20 I have seen in just 2020 alone that are starting to draw attention to the metabolic/inflammatory origins of yet another neurological disease of “mysterious” origin – namely, Parkinson Disease (PD). What makes this article both interesting and infuriating is that apparently the connection between gut pathology, … Read more Parkinson Disease (PD) may begin in the gut

Simply inhaling endotoxin (LPS) may cause Parkinson Disease (PD)

The role of endotoxin (LPS) in neurodegenerative diseases is becoming more and more recognized, despite claims by mainstream medicine that LPS only poses danger to people with severely compromised livers. However, even scientists that are aware of the causative role of LPS in those diseases focus mostly on the absorption of LPS from colon into … Read more Simply inhaling endotoxin (LPS) may cause Parkinson Disease (PD)

Low metabolism, cellular debris may cause Huntington Disease (HD)

Yet another study demonstrating the crucial role of oxidative metabolism (OXPHOS) in a chronic degenerative condition considered largely genetic in origin. Just as importantly, the study corroborates findings from other recent reports/experiments demonstrating that the presence of cellular debris in the blood stream is anything but benign. The presence of such debris is interpreted by … Read more Low metabolism, cellular debris may cause Huntington Disease (HD)

Cytokine storm in COVID-19 / sepsis due to “cancer metabolism” (Warburg Effect)

A great study illustrating the crucial effects of metabolism even in “non-metabolic” conditions like COVID-19. We already have evidence that increased PUFA peroxidation is one of the causes behind the (often lethal) cytokine storm in viral diseases, including COVID-19. However, the direct mechanism through which immune cells such as phagocytes “go berserk” and increase release … Read more Cytokine storm in COVID-19 / sepsis due to “cancer metabolism” (Warburg Effect)

Aspirin protects mitochondria from inflammation and aging

The good news about aspirin just never seem to stop. While the anti-inflammatory effects of aspirin are well-known, mainstream medicine like to explain them away with the limited (and frankly primitive) mechanism of COX inhibition alone. If aspirin happens to achieve some other beneficial health effects, the doctors always try to either frame it in … Read more Aspirin protects mitochondria from inflammation and aging

Blocking serotonin may treat allergies and inflammatory diseases

The bad news for serotonin (5-HT) just keeps accumulating. Aside from its well-known (outside of medical office, of course) effects on causing pretty much any mental illness defined in DSM V, as well as fibrosis in any organ/tissue unfortunate enough to be exposed to 5-HT now we can add infectious disease, allergies and inflammatory diseases. … Read more Blocking serotonin may treat allergies and inflammatory diseases

Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) may be simply hypothyroidism

The rate of CFS in the general population has been steadily increasing over the last 2 decades. While mainstream medicine refuses to accept the pathology as objectively existing condition, an off-label diagnosis of CFS is often communicated by a doctor to a patient, and is explained as being a “functional” idiopathic disorder for which currently … Read more Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) may be simply hypothyroidism

Pregnenolone (P5) – a new osteoporosis drug

About a month ago, I made a post in regards to aspirin becoming a new treatment for osteoporosis. Several months ago, I made another post about an in-vitro study demonstrating powerful anabolic effects of pregnenolone (P5) on bones. Apparently, the protective effects of P5 on bone health are known in certain circles and there have … Read more Pregnenolone (P5) – a new osteoporosis drug
