Re: Scam warning: Ryan Ballow/Cortex Labs

Oh yeah, no scammer ever posts Youtube videos to gain a following. Sure. Scammers make grandiose claims but refuse to provide evidence, and get angry when confronted. Such as Ballow claiming he's cured 50+ people of PSSD without evidence, and hurling insults at me for questioning him. And then he ju...

It's possible the increased consumption of nitrates from arugula enhanced your nitric oxide levels, which can improve EQ. L-citrulline is also good at increasing nitric oxide.

Re: PSSD/PFS/PAS - The P450 Enzymes - Possible Mechanism

I keep coming back to this thread... You can test your genes for mutations in CYP2D6 leading to reduced expression. However, there is no way SSRI or other drugs metabolized by CYP2D6 are still in one's system long after stopping, as you would still have a decent amount of enzymes, it's just that dr...

Yes pretty much the same, although selegiline metabolizes to methamphetamine in small amounts which may or may not be physiologically relevant, but will cause failed drug test.

See 1st post for symptoms. It felt similar to how you described. No I did not try wellbutrin but I did benefit from rasagiline which boosts dopamine signalling.

Re: Pssd

People who are recovered (like myself after 8 yrs of PSSD) will tell you no. No one can know whether any case is permanent or not, even if it has gone on for many years. Some will simply decide that this is sufficient evidence to believe it is permanent, and that every recovery story never really ha...

Imagine you are considering a doctor for long COVID. This doctor claims they cured dozens of long COVID cases. You ask for detailed testimonials, but the doctor states they demand their former patients maintain secrecy about what was prescribed. The doctor also states some of his patients with "...

Re: Scam warning: Ryan Ballow/Cortex Labs

The posts you reference are still on the forum, and as Ballow is banned he cannot edit them, so feel free to link to them. Keep in mind, let's not turn this thread into purely throwing cold water.

Scam warning: Ryan Ballow/Cortex Labs
