“Just A Flu Folks” Mastery Newsletter Sept 21, 2020

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Mastery Newsletter

Swiss Policy Research outlines what COVID 19 is.

 

(Don’t read if you believe governments. Ha ha)

 

Points from Swiss Policy research:

 

 

-Lethality same as flu

 

-Panic and fear may have caused many deaths

 

-Face masks are “ridiculous”

 

-Countries with no lockdowns have not had any more negative results than those with lockdowns

 

-The virus test has not been validated

 

-Vaccine may be “dangerous”

 

 

” the overall lethality of Covid-19 (IFR) is about 0.1% and thus in the range of a strong seasonal influenza (flu)…

 

 

it is not clear whether these people really died from Covid19 or from weeks of extreme stress and isolation.

 

 

Up to 30% of all additional deaths may have been caused not by Covid19, but by the effects of the lockdown, panic and fear.

 

 

The often shown exponential curves of “corona cases” are misleading, as the number of tests also increased exponentially.

 

 

 

 

…The initial assumption that there was no immunity against Covid-19 was not correct….

 

 

…Countries without lockdowns, such as Japan, South Korea, Belarus and Sweden, have not experienced a more negative course of events than many other countries.

 

 

Sweden was even praised by the WHO and now benefits from higher immunity compared to lockdown countries.

 

 

75% of Swedish deaths happened in nursing facilities that weren’t protected fast enough…

 

 

The effectiveness of face masks in healthy and asymptomatic individuals remains questionable.

 

 

Experts warn that such masks may interfere with normal breathing and may become “germ carriers”.

 

Leading doctors called them a “media hype” and “ridiculous”

 

 

 

 

 

 

The virus test kits used internationally are prone to errors and can produce false positive and false negative results.

 

 

Moreover, the official virus test was not clinically validated due to time pressure and may sometimes react positive to other coronaviruses.

 

 

 

 

Several medical experts described express coronavirus vaccines as unnecessary or even dangerous.

 

 

Indeed, the vaccine against the so-called swine flu of 2009, for example, led to sometimes severe neurological damage and lawsuits in the millions.

 

 

In the testing of new coronavirus vaccines, too, serious complications and failures have already occurred….”

Vitamin D to Deal with COVID 19. Mastery Newsletter September 18, 2020

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Mastery Newsletter

Vitamin D optimization is likely the easiest, least expensive and most beneficial strategy that anyone can do to minimize their risk of COVID-19 and other infections in coming months

 

    More than 1 billion individuals worldwide, across all age groups, are deficient in vitamin D, which has now been identified as a significant risk factor for positive COVID-19 status, severe COVID-19 infection and death thereof

 

    In Indonesia, people with a vitamin D level between 20 ng/mL and 30 ng/mL had a sevenfold higher risk of death than those with a level above 30 ng/mL. Having a level below 20 ng/mL was associated with a 12 times higher risk of death

 

    To improve your immune function and lower your risk of viral infections, you’ll want to raise your vitamin D to a level between 60 ng/mL and 80 ng/mL (150 nmol/L and 200 nmol/L) by fall

 

    Vitamin D optimization is particularly important for dark-skinned individuals, as the darker your skin, the more sun exposure you need to raise your vitamin D level, as well as the elderly

COVID Cure Exists. Mastery Newsletter September 15, 2020

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Mastery Newsletter

“The Key to Defeating COVID-19 Already Exists. We Need to Start Using It”

 

 Opinion in Newsweek

 

by Harvey A. Risch, MD, PhD , Professor of Epidemiology, Yale School of Public Health

 

“As professor of epidemiology at Yale School of Public Health, I have authored over 300 peer-reviewed publications and currently hold senior positions on the editorial boards of several leading journals.

 

I am usually accustomed to advocating for positions within the mainstream of medicine, so have been flummoxed to find that, in the midst of a crisis, I am fighting for a treatment that the data fully support but which, for reasons having nothing to do with a correct understanding of the science, has been pushed to the sidelines.

 

As a result, tens of thousands of patients with COVID-19 are dying unnecessarily.

 

Fortunately, the situation can be reversed easily and quickly.”

The Looming Bank Collapse: Worse Than 2008? Mastery Newsletter September 14, 2020

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Blogs, Joy, Energy and Health, Mastery Newsletter

They bailed out the banks in ’08.

 

Will they want to do it again?

 

This article from The Atlantic spells it out.

 

The Looming Bank Collapse

 

The Atlantic July August 2020 edition

 

“…Remember all those subsidiaries Enron created (many of them infamously named after Star Wars characters) to keep risky bets off the energy firm’s financial statements?

 

The big banks use similar structures, called “variable interest entities”—companies established largely to hold off-the-books positions.

 

Wells Fargo has more than $1 trillion of VIE assets, about which we currently know very little, because reporting requirements are opaque.

 

But one popular investment held in VIEs is securities backed by commercial mortgages, such as loans to shopping malls and office parks—two categories of borrowers experiencing severe strain as a result of the pandemic….

 

 

…It is a distasteful fact that the present situation is so dire in part because the banks fell right back into bad behavior after the last crash—taking too many risks, hiding debt in complex instruments and off-balance-sheet entities, and generally exploiting loopholes in laws intended to rein in their greed.

 

Sparing them for a second time this century will be that much harder…

 

 

A bank shouldn’t be able to keep $1 trillion worth of assets off its books.

 

If we do manage to make it through the next year without waking up to a collapse, we must find ways to prevent the big banks from going all in on bets they can’t afford to lose.

 

Their luck—and ours—will at some point run out.”

Sweden Will Have the Last Laugh. Mastery Newsletter September 9, 2020

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Mastery Newsletter

From financial newsletter writer Jeff Brown:

“Dear Reader,

A headline caught my eye late on Friday evening: “Key coronavirus forecast predicts over 410,000 total U.S. deaths by Jan. 1: ‘The worst is yet to come.’”

Oh my! The pandering of fear and panic continues…

Even when I know something is false, I still like to see what the assumptions are and where the numbers are coming from.

In this case, the projection came from the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME), a part of the University of Washington.

If we just use some common sense, we can figure out pretty quickly that the projection doesn’t add up:

  • The first officially documented case of COVID-19 in the U.S. was back in January of this year.
  • To date, 193,587 deaths are considered related to COVID-19.
  • Since January, that is an eight-month period.
  • We can clearly see that daily new cases are falling quickly in the U.S.
  • As per the CDC, only 6% of the 193,587 claimed deaths were from just COVID-19 (all other deaths had two or three other underlying conditions responsible).
  • And as much as 90% of all “positive” PCR tests are false positives caused by an overly sensitive cycle setting on the PCR machines.

But despite all this, we are to believe that in less than four months, the COVID-19 death count will more than double? No way.

This made me very suspicious of the IHME projections. So I chose a baseline country that we could analyze… Sweden.

As we know from The Bleeding Edge, Sweden’s unique, courageous, and logical approach to dealing with COVID-19 has produced incredible results. It is highly likely that Sweden has already reached herd immunity.

As we can see below, in less than four months, Sweden went from the outset of the pandemic to near zero daily deaths. Since the beginning of July, daily deaths were typically less than 10, and since the beginning of August, many days have seen less than five deaths or even zero.

What’s remarkable about Sweden is that the country accomplished this without economic lockdowns, without mandating masks, and without closing schools. No fear, no panic, no riots, and no mask requirements.

That’s why I wanted to see what the IHME is predicting for Sweden. Let’s have a look:

 

The line on the left side of the graph represents daily deaths. And then we can see two projections into the future.

The green line that continues until January 1 at near zero daily deaths assumes that everyone suddenly begins to wear masks. The red line that projects a massive spike to 700 deaths per day – seven times higher than Sweden’s April peak – assumes the Swedes don’t all wear masks.

Does that make any sense at all? Of course not. It’s lunacy.

Sweden managed a controlled spread of COVID-19 to the low-risk parts of its population – without requiring masks. But we are now somehow supposed to believe that if the Swedes don’t wear masks, the next four months will become seven times worse than the last eight months?

You’ve got to be kidding me. Absolute nonsense.

Why is this happening? Why are our academic institutions and scientific communities failing us when we need them the most?

Sadly… money. COVID-19 is the hottest topic right now, and by adding fuel to the fire to make the “crisis” appear bigger than it actually is, more funding ends up being driven to academic and scientific research.

Scientists who wrote and spoke about the facts related to COVID-19 have been excoriated by the academic and scientific communities. Their careers have been badly damaged for not “toeing the line” or “playing along.”

Michael Levitt, a biophysicist and expert in structural biology at Stanford, and John Ioannidis, another Stanford professor who is an expert in evidence-based medicine and epidemiology, are two perfect examples.

I have tremendous respect for their willingness to simply tell the truth and share the facts about COVID-19… even if it comes at personal expense.

Sweden too was severely criticized by the scientific community for its approach to managing COVID-19. But in the end, Sweden will be proven right. Sweden will have the last laugh.

And so will we… because we know that the “game” is nearly up.

And please make sure to check in tomorrow in The Bleeding Edge. I promise to spill some ink on the “breather” that we are experiencing in the stock markets that started on Thursday last week.”

If You Take the Vaccine, You Are On Your Own. Mastery Newsletter September 7, 2020

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Blogs, Joy, Energy and Health, Mastery Newsletter

Any vaccine that is developed for COVID 19, the drug companies will NOT be liable for any “side effects.”

So says Bill Gates in this documentary.

That means if you get any debilitating disease, lose your job and your possessions, there will be NO recourse.

Also revealed: the minimum time any vaccine has ever been developed is 7 years.

The average time is 20 years.

To expect a vaccine in months is “bordering on the absurd.”

You will also see how after 491,000 people developed diseases from Gates Foundation vaccines, the Indian government conducted an inquiry.

They kicked the Gates Foundation out of the country.

(Did you hear this in the news? Anywhere?)

You will also discover who funds the so called “fact checkers.” And what their real agenda is.

Hint: It has to do with painting anyone with a differing opinion as a “conspiracy theorist.”

Get to this as soon as you can…

“Music reaches parts of the brain that other things can’t,” says Loveday.

 

“It’s a strong cognitive stimulus that grows the brain in a way that nothing else does, and the evidence that musical training enhances things like working memory and language is very robust.”

Live Longer AND be Happy Every Day. Mastery Newsletter August 31, 2020

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Blogs, Joy, Energy and Health, Mastery Newsletter

He was 105 when he died.

 

He was happy every day.

 

He lived life to the fullest.

 

His name? Dr. Shikeaki Hinohara.

 

“They say that with age comes knowledge. A lifetime of trial and error, meaningful experiences, and lessons learned gives people a deeper perspective of the world that younger generations tend to lack.

 

Life, like anything, requires practice. That is something that this 105-year-old Japanese doctor vouched for in his life.

 

His goal before his death was to share with you what he learned so that you can learn how to live longer and be happy.

 

At a glance:

 

1. Healthy eating

“All people who live long — regardless of nationality, race or gender — share one thing in common: None are overweight.[2]”

2. Plan ahead

Find things that excite you and put them into your schedule to give yourself something to look forward to. 

3. “Retiring” doesn’t mean you stop doing what you love

“There is no need to ever retire, but if one must, it should be a lot later than”

4. Share what you know

“I give 150 lectures a year, some for 100 elementary-school children, others for 4,500 business people. I usually speak for 60 to 90 minutes, standing, to stay strong.”

 

Knowledge is power. Use what you have learned from your experiences to teach other people and contribute to society in a positive way.

5. There’s more to healing than science

“I think music and animal therapy can help more than most doctors imagine.”

Coming from the mouth of a doctor: “Science alone can’t heal everything.”

6. Take the stairs and carry your own stuff

Keeping your body strong will help to also keep your mind strong as you age. Hinohara reported that he would take the stairs two at a time to get his muscles moving. If this 105-year-old man could do it, then you can too!

7. Find inspiration

“My inspiration is Robert Browning’s poem “Abt Vogler.” It encourages us to make big art, not small scribbles.”

8. Heal pain with fun

“Pain is mysterious, and having fun is the best way to forget it.”

9. Don’t be crazy about amassing material things.

Hinohara knew more than anyone that you can’t take material things with you when you die. Don’t waste your life attempting to accumulate ‘things’. Instead, use your time and money to accumulate experiences.

10. Find a role model

Age Well Project. Mastery Newsletter August 26, 2020

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Mastery Newsletter

From Health researcher Ken Peters:

 

”LONGEVITY TIPS

 

Around five years ago, two British women, Susan Saunders and Annabel Streets, started researching the scientific literature for information on how to have a healthier, happier, and extended, old age. They blogged about their findings, and now their “Age Well Project” has been published as a book, offering nearly 100 ways to prolong life, and enjoy good health while doing so.

 

Below are a few of their more interesting suggestions, and at the bottom you will find a link to an article that covers more of their material (as well as a link to their book on Amazon).

 

CHANGE HOW YOU EAT

Studies indicate that longevity, as it relates to diet, is more about how and when you eat, and not as much about what you eat (obviously aside from a junk food diet).

 

Choosing high quality, undenatured, unprocessed, and, ideally organic, whole foods, is required for good health (whether one is vegan or paleo). However, it is also important not to eat too late in the day.

When You Eat

Eating dinner a few hours before bed allows for digestion to be mostly complete by the time we go to sleep, which supports better sleep, and increases the overnight fast. This period of not eating (or fasting) is essential for health and longevity. (The reason the first meal is called breakfast, is because we are breaking the fast that went on through the night.)

 

If one has a large meal before bed, not only is the body unable to burn any of those calories, but the heart has to work for hours, pumping blood to the stomach in order to facilitate digestion. Thus one can not fully rest and restore while sleeping.

 

How Fast You Eat

Another important factor in eating is how fast we eat. The slow food movement started in Europe decades ago, and now has spread throughout the world.

(“Slow Food was started by Carlo Petrini and a group of activists in the 1980s with the initial aim to defend regional traditions, good food, gastronomic pleasure, and a slow pace of life. In over two decades of history, the movement has evolved to embrace a comprehensive approach to food that recognizes the strong connections between plate, planet, people, politics and culture. Today Slow Food represents a global movement involving thousands of projects and millions of people in over 160 countries.”)  

 

While the slow food movement has become about more than just leisurely eating, initially it was a reaction to “fast food”, and everything those poor quality foods represent.

 

When we eat slowly we chew more thoroughly, which then requires less energy for digestion, proper chewing being the first step in digestion. Slow eating also allows the satiety hormones to kick in, ensuring that we don’t overeat. Eating too fast allows us to keep eating beyond an ideal amount, since we have not yet digested sufficient food for the satiety signals to kick in.

 

Overeating

Constantly eating throughout the day (5 times per day) is often advised as a way to lose weight, since frequent eating will keep the metabolism racing.

 

However, constant eating keeps the digestive system always working, which means it is also always producing insulin. This overproduction of insulin can in turn lead to insulin resistance, which is a pre-diabetic state.

 

Overeating is clearly a common problem these days, and should be avoided when aiming at extending life as much as possible. I learned in Macrobiotics school that it is better to undereat poor quality food than to overeat good quality food. Which ties into the old English proverb, “Don’t dig your grave with your own knife and fork”.

 

There is a reason that animal studies (insects, rodents, and primates) consistently show life extension to result from calorie restriction.

 

When we are digesting cooked foods our body sends enzymes to the stomach to facilitate digestion. However, when the stomach is empty, those enzymes are patrolling the bloodstream looking for invaders to dispense with.

 

They clean the blood of foreign protein particles, allergens, dead cells, bad bacteria and fungus. All in an attempt to help keep us healthy, and living well into old age.

 

For more information on the subject of eating and longevity, check out an earlier blog of mine, “It’s Not What You Eat, It’s When You Eat”.

 

READ BOOKS

As a voracious reader of fiction, I particularly like this recommendation: read more for a longer, healthier life.

A Yale study (3,600 people over the age of 50), found that reading increased longevity by almost two years.

 

The greatest increase in lifespan occurred among those who read 3.5 hours, or more, weekly, though even “30 minutes a day was still beneficial”.

 

Although those surveyed did not specify what genre of books they were reading, the study authors maintain that it is likely most of the people were reading fiction.

 

When attempting to answer why reading would extend lifespan, they suggested that there are two cognitive processes involved in reading books that could create a “survival advantage”.

 

One: Reading books promote the “slow, immersive process of deep reading, a cognitive engagement which occurs as the reader draws connections to other parts of the material, finds applications to the outside world, and asks questions about the content presented”.

 

Two: “Books can promote empathy, social perception, and emotional intelligence, which are cognitive processes that can lead to greater survival”.

 

Interestingly, those who read books lived longer than those who mostly read newspapers and magazines. Based on what was just said above, we can assume that these mediums do not allow for an “immersive process of deep reading”, and they are likely non-fiction in nature.

 

For another perspective on reading newspapers have a look at this earlier blog of mine: Bad News for Women, on how women and men react differently to “news”.

 

Finally, many experts recommend reading as a means of getting to sleep, good quality sleep being yet another longevity factor. Though, from the perspective of Chinese medicine, only reading fiction is of benefit when trying to fall asleep afterwards.

 

Chinese medicine practitioners believe reading non-fiction over-stimulates the spleen meridian, which agitates the brain (as it is trying to learn), whereas fiction does not engage the brain in the same way.

 

 

VISIT GREEN SPACES

We all feel better when we get a chance to be in nature for a while. However, nature has more powerful benefits than just helping us to destress and feel more relaxed.

 

Trees produce phytoncides, a substance emitted by plants and trees, which provides the aroma of the forest.

 

“Phyton” means “plant” in Latin, and “cide” means to exterminate, and phytoncides are produced to help plants & trees protect themselves from harmful insects and germs.

 

In humans, phytoncides have been shown to help improve immunity, lower blood pressure, and reduce stress. As well, microbes found in forest soil have been found to reduce depression, and may even contribute to the health of our microbiome.

A 15-minute walk is all it takes to reap the benefits, but researchers have found that a weekend in the woods improves immunity for up to a month, while a short afternoon run or walk somewhere green leads to better sleep at night.

Are Our Minds Controlled? Mastery Newsletter August 24, 2020

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Mastery Newsletter

If so, if your mind and my mind are controlled, how is it done?

 

Freud’s nephew Edward Bernays says we are manipulated.

 

He wrote a book called “Propaganda.”

 

This was in 1928.

 

He shows how to do it and how it is being done…right up to now.

 

Bernays is called the “Father of Propaganda.”

 

He shows how an invisible government controls our minds with a thought prison.

Is Ice the Answer to COVID? Mastery Newsletter August 22, 2020

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Mastery Newsletter

According to Wim Hof, the Iceman, you can do the “impossible”…control your autonomic nervous system.

 

If you can do that, can you also deal with any and all viruses, bacteria, germs and bugs?

 

Wim did so…

 

He also taught 12 others how to do that. Get into their autonomic nervous systems and control what was thought to be impossible.

 

Now, biology textbooks are being rewritten. One already has. I have the chapter on Wim Hof.

 

We CAN control our autonomic nervous systems.

 

His students volunteered to get injected with sickness producing bacteria.

 

A control group became very ill, even shaking.

 

Wim’s group “reawakened” their internal power to control their systems.

 

They felt a little something while their systems dealt with the sickness producing bacteria.

 

Get informed.

 

Get empowered.

 

Feel more energy.

 

Feel more complete.

 

Wim says our only purpose is to become spiritually aware.

 

This is what makes us happy…truly happy.

 

Wim says ice and cold are merciless, but they are righteous.

 

Enjoy the TED talk by Wim and especially the short video at the beginning.

4 Minutes to Prevent Heart Conditions. Mastery Newsletter August 5, 2020

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Mastery Newsletter

This is said to be the best way to prevent heart conditions…according to Dr. Mercola.

Here, Dr. Zach Bush reveals its benefits for muscle tone as well.

“The Four Minute Workout is a new concept of exercise that revolves around the body’s ability to use Nitric Oxide for muscle growth.

This is an efficient anaerobic workout that can be done multiple times per day. The more frequently you do it, the better your results.

 

Nitric Oxide is a molecule made by the human body that feeds your muscles.

 

When you start to exercise and run out of oxygen (you feel your muscles ache), Nitric Oxide is released.

 

As it moves downstream, blood vessels dilate allowing more oxygen and nutrient delivery for muscle growth.

 

Our blood vessels actually only store about 90 seconds worth of Nitric Oxide before they need to manufacture more, so working each major muscle group out for 90 seconds gives you the most efficient workout to tone and build muscles.

 

The body has the ability to regenerate Nitric Oxide every couple of hours, giving you the opportunity to release it multiple times a day.

 

What that means is the most effective way to increase your muscle function is to work out very briefly every few hours.

 

The Four Minute Workout can be completed multiple times per day no matter where you are, who you’re with, or what you’re wearing.

 

In just four minutes you exercise the 16 largest muscle groups in your body. It is free, easy, effective, and the best way to start toning your body systems.”

De-Stress in 14 Seconds. Mastery Newsletter August 4, 2020

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Mastery Newsletter

More than ever, now is a good time to get a handle on stress.

 

“…Everybody gets stressed — in America alone, $30 billion is lost a year to work days taken off because people feel overwhelmed. But there’s a way to handle stress that only takes you 14 seconds.

 

While there are lots of approaches to managing stress, they tend to require training (like mindfulness meditation) or dedicated, set-aside time (like running).

 

But according to a new study out of Rutgers University, all you need is a handful of happy memories.

 

In their first experiment, researchers Mauricio Delgado and Megan Speer asked 134 participants to plunge their hands into icy water.

 

Then, one group spent 14 seconds recalling an emotionally neutral experience — like packing for a trip — while the other recalled a positive experience — like visiting Disneyland.

 

The positive reminiscence group not only felt better after their freezing ice bath, but they also had just 15 percent of the spike in cortisol, a hormone the body releases when perceiving stress, that the control group had.

 

A follow-up brain imaging experiment helped reveal why this is.

 

The researchers found that recalling happy memories was associated with greater activity in the prefrontal regions of the brain.

 

These are areas that are also active when people control their attention and reappraise their emotional states, a process that research indicates can help people handle stress without developing depression.

 

While this is just one study, it’s a promising — and clever — indicator that your memories don’t just form a mental scrapbook; they’re tools you can use to become more resilient.

 

The study was published in Nature Human Behavior and highlighted by BPS Research Digest.

Dopamine as Poison? Mastery Newsletter July 29, 2020

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Mastery Newsletter

Dopamine is how we get addicted…to heroin, coffee, sugar, Facebook, cell phones…to name a few.

 

Dopamine is also the motivating molecule/hormone.

 

So, why is it “bad?”

 

The source is the key.

 

Here is a great article from Health researcher and author Ken Peters on how to get your dopamine in an effective, healthy way.

 

Special note for those who have Parkinson’s also..

 

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Feeling Good

 

Given that many of these newsletters are about what makes us sick, and given the nature of the times, this week I thought I would address the subject of feeling good.

 

And what makes us feel good? Ultimately, it is the neurotransmitter dopamine. From love to learning, from coffee to heroin, the dopamine pathway is involved.

 

Dopamine

 

The chemical messenger, dopamine, is evolution’s reward mechanism, one that serves many functions, aside from making us feel good.

 

Dopamine is involved in attention, memory, motivation, and even in regulating body movements (thus dopamine receptor malfunction is an attribute of Parkinson’s disease).

 

When the body releases large amounts of dopamine we experience feelings of pleasure and reward, this in turn motivates us to repeat a specific behavior.

 

Originally this worked out great: we fall in love and we release dopamine, being rewarded for maintaining the species (in a healthful manner); we learn something new, make a connection in an area that we find interesting, and we get a shot of dopamine encouraging learning in the species.

 

However, when we figured out how to stimulate the dopamine circuit on our own, things got dicey.

 

Most drugs from sugar and coffee to cocaine and heroin follow the dopamine circuit. Almost anything that can be addictive usually involves the dopamine circuit. Even simple computer games omnipresent on smartphones are based on the dopamine/reward system.

 

Social Media

 

And it’s not just computer games that ride this circuit.

 

Chamath Palihapitiya, former Vice President of User Growth at Facebook, had this to say to an audience of Stanford students: “The short-term, dopamine-driven feedback loops that we have created are destroying how society works.” Palihapitiya went on to emphasize that smartphones, along with the social media platforms they support, are turning people into addicts.

 

Platforms like Facebook, Snapchat, and Instagram, “leverage the very same neural circuitry used by slot machines and cocaine to keep us using their products as much as possible”.

 

Depression

 

While high dopamine levels have us feeling on top of the world, low levels of dopamine result in lowered enthusiasm for life, and reduced motivation.

 

Here, I would like to address the use of serotonin for depression.

 

Those showing symptoms of lowered enthusiasm for life and reduced motivation are what we would consider depressed. Clearly dopamine would be the answer here but, instead, drugs like Prozac – Selective Serotonin Uptake Inhibitors – are prescribed.

 

Drugs which work to increase serotonin. Serotonin is an inhibitory neurotransmitter (unlike dopamine which is an excitatory neurotransmitter), and is more suitable for those suffering from anxiety.

 

The simple definition is that serotonin is a “downer” and dopamine is an “upper. Thus it is absolutely incorrect, and dangerous, to give downers to those who are depressed.

 

(For more on this subject have a read of my older blog called “Mood Enhancers”.)

 

Raising Dopamine

 

I know what you are thinking: “but Ken, I don’t want to take heroin to feel good about life.”

 

Good news: you don’t have to. There are many natural ways to gently elevate our dopamine levels, which we will look at now.

 

Fat Consumption

 

Contrary to previous beliefs about fat, we do need some saturated fats, and some cholesterol, for good health.

 

That being said, animal research has indicated that saturated fats (found in animal fat, butter, coconut oil, full-fat dairy, and palm oil) may disrupt dopamine signaling in the brain.

 

However, this only occurs when these fats are consumed in large amounts, and these are rat studies, and it is possible that the traditional rat diet would not naturally be high in saturated fats.

 

Nonetheless, in one study, rats consuming 50% of their calories from saturated fat had reduced dopamine signaling in their brains, compared to rats receiving the same amount of calories from unsaturated fats.

 

As far as human studies go, some observational studies have identified a link between a diet high in saturated fats and poor cognitive functioning and memory, though it was not established if this effect was related to dopamine levels.

 

(These observational studies also revealed that the frequent consumption of fish was associated with better cognitive function and memory.) (Study)

 

Herbs

 

The most powerful source of L-dopa, the precursor to dopamine, is the velvet bean, sold in supplemental form under its latin name, Mucuna Pruriens.

 

When concentrated into a form suitable for supplementing with, studies have shown that mucuna may be as effective as medications for boosting dopamine levels in those with Parkinson’s disease.

 

Another plant-derived substance shown to elevate dopamine is curcumin, from the spice turmeric. (Study) And, the ideal type of turmeric extract is the liposomal form, which delivers the curcumin directly into the cells. (Liposomal Curcumin/Resveratrol)

 

Meditation

 

In a limited study of 8 experienced meditators, one hour of meditation induced a 64% increase in dopamine production, compared with the same participants simply resting quietly for an equal amount of time. (Study)

 

Music

 

Brain imaging studies have found that listening to music increases activity in areas of the brain which are rich with dopamine receptors. (Study)

 

Probiotics

 

The gut is often referred to as the “second brain” due to the large number of nerve cells it contains, which produce many neurotransmitters.

 

In fact, there is now the term “psychobiotics” which is used to describe an “emerging class of probiotics of relevance to psychiatry”.

 

Research in this area has made it clear that certain species of gut bacteria are also capable of producing dopamine.

 

While there is limited research on the subject of dopamine and probiotics, there are certainly many studies which indicate that certain bacteria strains reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression (in animals and humans).

 

At this point I will mention an older newsletter of mine which revealed that our probiotic product, Lactospore Supreme, proved itself to be “effective in managing psychological conditions associated with disorders in the gut, opening up a new avenue of research in the field of enteric-neurobiology and brain-gut-microbiome axis”.

 

Protein

 

Dopamine requires two amino acids in order to be produced in the body, both of which are obtained from foods high in protein.

 

These two, phenylalanine and tyrosine, are found in beef, dairy products, eggs, legumes, soy, and turkey.

 

(Vegetarians might consider consuming the algae spirulina, which is very high in phenylalanine.)

 

There are studies which show that increasing the amount of tyrosine and phenylalanine in the diet can increase dopamine levels in the brain.

 

And, other studies show that removing phenylalanine and tyrosine from the diet will result in depleted dopamine.

 

For those not eating a high protein diet (which is primarily a diet including animal foods, or an awful lot of protein shakes), or for those with seriously low dopamine levels, the two amino acids in question are available in supplement form.

 

(Single amino acids in supplement form should be taken on an empty stomach, or at least away from protein.)

 

Sleep

 

As you might expect, we release dopamine in the mornings, when we need to wake up and be alert (thus coffee, which provides caffeine, and also elevates dopamine levels moderately).

 

And of course, dopamine levels decline in the evening (as serotonin levels, ideally, rise), when it is time to relax and go to sleep.

 

However, lack of sleep can disrupt the natural rhythms of neurotransmitters. Studies in which subjects are forced to stay awake throughout the night, have shown that the ability to process dopamine is drastically reduced by the next morning.

 

Other studies have confirmed that regular, good quality sleep keeps dopamine levels ideal, and aids in one being more alert and high functioning during the day.

 

Sunlight

 

Most of us are aware of the condition called SAD (seasonal affective disorder), which causes some people to feel depressed during the winter.

 

It has been established that low exposure to sunlight can lead to reduced levels of dopamine, and that exposure to more sunlight can increase dopamine levels.

 

In fact, even tanning salons will do the job of tricking your body into believing it is getting sunshine.

 

In one study, those who used tanning beds at least twice a week, for one year, were found to have higher dopamine levels as a result (and a desire to repeat the behavior, indicating that even tanning can be addictive).

 

Yoga

 

While most forms of exercise benefit the mood, one that is clinically effective at raising dopamine levels is yoga. One study, lasting 3 months, discovered that one hour of yoga, done 6 days of the week, could increase dopamine levels significantly.

 

Essential Nutrients

 

Finally, it must be mentioned that we do require certain nutrients be present for our body to make dopamine (aside from the aforementioned amino acids), and if these are not present in adequate amounts, none of the above techniques will be able to work.

 

The most important nutrients for dopamine production are: iron, niacin, folate and vitamin B6, magnesium, and vitamin D.

 

Conclusion

 

Dopamine is a double-edged sword. Proper amounts, naturally derived, are part of a healthy, happy life.

 

Too much, attained through unnatural means (drugs, gambling, social media tricks, being addicted to falling in love), eventually blunts or (in the case of heavy drug use) destroys the dopamine receptors.

 

At that point the individual can no longer get high on life, and needs more and more of the drug, or lifestyle, in question just to feel anything.

 

This is why Chamath Palihapitiya stated social media addiction is “destroying how society works”.

 

A nation of addicts jonesing for their next fix is hardly what we need in these perilous times.
