We need to talk about the role of GABA in mental illness and neurological disorders. And then I am going to explain to you why ketones can help regulate this neurotransmitter. 🧵 (1/21)
GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) is the main inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain, and it plays a critical role in regulating neuronal excitability and maintaining the balance between neuronal excitation and inhibition. (2/21)
GABAergic dysfunction has been implicated in a wide range of psychiatric and neurological disorders, including #anxiety disorders, #depression, #epilepsy, #schizophrenia, and #autism spectrum disorders. (3/21)

Two ketogenic dieticians, @KaniaZupec
and @KetoPotterRDN were both recently interviewed on BipolarCast podcast by @IainCampbellPhD and Matt Baszucki. And I think you will be interested to hear what they had to say. 🧵(1/7)
@KaniaZupec @KetoPotterRDN @IainCampbellPhD Beth and Denise, ketogenic dieticians with experience in treating pediatric epilepsy populations, have long observed the significant improvement of other medical issues alongside epilepsy, such as cognitive delays, physical mobility issues, autism, and depression. (2/7)
@KaniaZupec @KetoPotterRDN @IainCampbellPhD They have seen that, even when epilepsy remains the same, other symptoms may improve with a #ketogenic diet. (3/7)

Many people with mental health conditions rely on medications to manage their symptoms, but these medications often come with metabolic side effects like weight gain, type 2 diabetes, and sexual side effects. (1/8)
Many people complain of feeling less "bad" but also emotionally flat. As someone who does couples therapy, I can tell you these side effects come into the session with the couple.
There are costs to these side effects. (2/8)
In addition to the financial cost of medications, these side effects can come at a high quality-of-life cost, which is why many people don't stay on them, even when they're helpful. (3/8)

Insulin receptors and IGF-1 receptors, along with their signaling partners, are found throughout the brain. I think this needs a thread. 🧵(1/13)
IGF-1 receptors are involved in important #brain processes, including neuronal growth and survival, regulation of synaptic plasticity, and modulation of #neurotransmitter release. They are implicated in neuroprotection and #cognitive function. (2/13) #science #neuroscience
Many of you are familiar with insulin, but maybe you don't know well enough what its important roles are in the brain. Insulin affects neurotransmitter channel activity, brain cholesterol synthesis, and mitochondrial function. (3/13) #mitochondria

Some of you with cognitive symptoms #brainfog have genetic differences that mean you cannot produce enough choline. 🧵(1/10)
If you have these genetics, to get enough choline, you would have to eat 8 eggs a day. And while some of you really love eggs and are into that, that won't work for many of us. So why is having these genetic differences a problem? (2/10)
Because choline is a precursor to acetylcholine. This is a major neurotransmitter that helps run the "rest and digest" part of your nervous system. It's used for sleep. (3/10)

In my clinical experience as a mental health counselor working with clients with bipolar disorder, I have seen a reduction in ##medication usage and stability in #mood 1/8
One of the most exciting parts of this work is seeing my clients imagine themselves as someone who is well. #Bipolar disorder can supersede someone's sense of self, making them believe their symptoms are their personality. 2/8
However, I see the opening of possibilities and improvement in function as they start to dream about doing other things. Some of my clients choose to stay on some medications, but usually, there is a lowering of the dosages and discontinuation of many. 3/8

Is the field of Metabolic Psychiatry new and emerging? Actually no. There has been a long history of metabolism being known to play a role in mental illness. #metabolicpsychiatry #mentalillness (1/12)
@ChrisPalmerMD provides an excellent outline of what we knew and when in this talk on the @Metabolic_Mind YouTube Channel (2/12)
@ChrisPalmerMD @Metabolic_Mind Sir Henry Modsley said in 1879 that diabetes is a disease that runs in families with insanity. #metabolism #metabolicpsychiatry (3/12)

Brain Fog comes before the criteria are met for Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI). What are the symptoms of MCI? You might recognize them as what you are currently dealing with in your own recurrent or chronic brain fog symptoms. #brainfog #mci #mood 🧵(1/14)
You forget things more often.
You miss appointments or social events.
You lose your train of thought. Or you can't follow the plot of a book or movie. #brainfog #mci #mood (2/14)
You have trouble following a conversation.
You find it hard to make decisions, finish a task or follow instructions.
You start to have trouble finding your way around places you know well. (3/14) #brainfog #mci #mood

The effects of a ketogenic diet on immune function is one of the mechanisms by which it improves brain health. A healthy immune system protects the brain and reduces neuroinflammation. Brain immunology is a thing we don't talk about enough. 🧵
"...the present article encompasses several facets of ketogenic diet as an immunomodulator with respect to its expansive clinical applications."
In my Brain Fog Recovery Program, one of the lessons goes into some very basic brain immunology and discusses how chronic illness affects neuroinflammation, which then impairs vagus nerve function and digestion, and microbiome. It's all connected.

Greater evidence supports metabolic dysfunction as a likely root of bipolar illness. 🧵 #bipolar #mood #metabolicpsychiatry #inflammation #ketones
A low carbohydrate ketogenic diet mimics the mechanisms of mood stabilizers.
A ketogenic diet may repair or bypass metabolism deficits, decrease inflammation and regulate mood.

#music improves quality of life for people with #Dementia

1. Dementia caused by #Alzheimers disease is a relentlessly progressive #brain disease. Sufferers have #memory loss and impaired cognitive functions. Many require assistance for carrying out daily living activities.
2. People with dementia are often depressed and have poor quality of life.
Immediate recall and recent memory are the most affected in dementia, whereas remote memory is preserved until later stages.
Memory of music (especially their favorite ones) is also retained in many.
3. In a study, effects of music on #mood and quality of life of seniors suffering from dementia were assessed.
Over a period of 6 weeks, the seniors listened to their favorite music via headphones and an MP3 player for 20 minutes at a time three or four times a week.

GOP and DNC both out with new ads today accusing the other guys of inciting violence and fanning the flames of division. Wonder if the dystopian hellscape aesthetic will remain through the end of this election? #mood

Late every night -- as I finish sorting my photos at #Flickr -- a darkness comes over me. Often it comes without subject. This mood is impossible to visualize in a photograph because outsiders expect a cause for every #depression. There is none.
"Cautious" is the title I gave to the last photo. It's the proper state of mind for the times. We need to be cautious. I have been inside since the 7th of July due to #COVID19, avoiding my fellow human beings who walk around without masks, merrily spreading infection.

In case you doubt the connection btw scholarship and the antiquities market, check out these screenshots from a sales announcement I just got, highlighting the artifacts that have been translated, published, or given a scholarly report. BARF. ImageImageImageImage
Now let's take a look at some lots from this auction, starting with the "Translated Egyptian Limestone Offering Stele Fragment" carved in the famed "doodling in the margins of your math textbook" style. ImageImageImageImage
Also maybe try to not make the back reveal that you deliberately carved a fragment (and then got too worried about breaking it with your mediocre carving skills to finish thinning/finishing the reverse). ImageImage
