Article  Identifying and Fixing Brain Chemical Imbalances


Quote When the brain does not have enough energy, and especially over many years, a depletion of serotonin is the result. With a depletion of serotonin, our brains cannot respond to pleasurable events and the result is depression. This is called endogenous depression; i.e. depression is due primarily to a chemical imbalance in the brain.

Article  I Was Born Afraid


Quote I was born with a chemical imbalance. You know, I am mentally ill. I was born mentally ill, and that was nobody's fault. I think there is some mental illness that maybe went unacknowledged in some previous generations, and I think there's a little bit of, you know, anxiety maybe in my parents, but I think I really kind of drew the unlucky genetic straw as far as the sort of level of chemical imbalance goes. I'm a really textbook chemical imbalance case, because I don't have any sort of childhood trauma that, you know, I'm just so lucky in all these ways..

Article  HOMOSEXUALITY


Quote Some people say that taking the medical drug Lyrica may kill homosexual desires.  I don’t know why it works, but it can. Problems with taking Lyrica are that it is toxic and may have significant side effects.  It also does nothing to correct one’s body chemistry and build health.  In fact, it makes the body more toxic. The fact that a simple medical drug may change one’s sexual preference would tend to indicate that homosexuality is not genetic, but rather is a biochemical imbalance.
