Serotonin, SSRI drugs may be the cause of IBD, Parkinson’s, diabetes, etc.

A great new study that points the finger straight at serotonin (5-HT). It has been known since the 1940s that not only is 5-HT produced predominantly in the GI tract, but also that elevated serotonin levels are causally linked to a plethora of chronic conditions, especially various inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) such as Crohn’s, ulcerative … Read more

High (extracellular) serotonin causes Alzheimer’s and depression

The utter corruption of “journalism” is once again on full display in MSM. The actual scientific study is very clear in its statements/conclusions that a decrease in the levels of serotonin transporter (5-HTT) led to accumulation of beta-amyloid and onset of depression. Lower levels of 5-HTT – the protein that deactivates serotonin – means higher … Read more

Maternal SSRI/SNRI use leads to offspring addiction/withdrawal

After being told for decades that SSRI/SNRI drugs are safe for usage during pregnancy, now the truth finally starts to come out. Well, technically it has been out for a long time considering the skyrocketing autism rates and the strong causal link between serotonin and autism. However, up until now there had been no official … Read more

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

SSRI drugs decrease androgens / progestogens, increase estrogens

As hard as it is to believe, this is the actual title of the study – i.e. SSRI drugs are bonafide endocrine disruptors. As it turns out, all of the six most-prescribed SSRI drugs the study looked at behaved not only as inhibitors of gonadal androgen synthesis (e.g. testosterone, DHT), but also adrenal androgens (DHEA) … Read more

Serotonin puts the brakes on libido, by lowering dopamine

Nothing really surprising, as far as Peatarians are concerned, in the findings of this study. I am only posting it here as it is one of the few that officially acknowledge that serotonergic drugs cause sexual dysfunction – i.e. something mainstream medicine has vehemently denied for decades. As such, it corroborates the approach of using … Read more

Vitamin D may treat (opioid) “addiction”

Interesting article, which corroborated the role of vitamin D as an anti-stress hormone. As vitamin D is an actual steroid, it is expected to have a role as neurosteroid as well, and as such influence behavior and habits, including pathological ones such as “addiction”. Why do I put “addiction” in quotes? Mostly because the totality … 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

Upregulated serotonin synthesis may be a biomarker for breast cancer

Once again, the available evidence contradicts the popular myth promoted by public health agencies that serotonin is the “happiness hormone”. One only needs to talk to a person on serotonergic (SSRI) drugs for a few minutes to realize just how “happy” those people are as a result of their medication. The study below now exposes … Read more

Vitamin B6, lowering stress, may treat schizophrenia

Both human and animal studies. The human study was with pyridoxamine – a vitamin B6 isomer declared by FDA to be a “prescription drug” and as such banned for OTC sale in USA while still being widely available in most other countries. That FDA ruling is pointless due to the fact that pyridoxamine is NOT … Read more
