Part 1. The Impact Of Hormones (renewed on January 21, 2020)
Hormones have a very strong effect on the body and brain chemistry balance. Some plants are hormonal foods and have a very high amount of estrogenic compounds that can strongly change your real personality. For example a long term of drinking plant beer can make men thinking and behaving like women and women thinking and behaving like bitches. Every long term and even a small change on the natural hormonal balance can have a deep impact on physical, emotional and mental health. For example experiments with cats proved that cooked foods can make a big hormonal disbalance and convert some cats into true homosexuals: https://rawdiets.wordpress.com/the-pottenger-experiments/
Additionally a really great hormonal disbalance can happen from chemical pollutants in food, water we drink or touch by skin and air: https://indyweek.com/news/fish-frogs-change-gender/ and https://inhabitat.com/common-herbicide-causes-a-sex-change-in-frogs/
Unfortunately, humankind is gradually degenerating due to chemical pollutants and existing non-stop hormonal disbalances related to improper food: https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/fendo.2019.00178/full
Let’s consider what influences hormones have on mental health particularly:
Thyroid issues are often overlooked as the hormonally-triggered cause of symptoms. When the thyroid becomes overactive – hyperthyroidism — symptoms can include anxiety, insomnia, moodiness, panic attacks, and depression. Some women have even been mistakenly misdiagnosed as having a panic disorder or anorexia before properly diagnosed with an overactive thyroid. An underactive thyroid — hypothyroidism — can cause depression, moodiness, fatigue, and in some cases, anxiety as well.
Adrenal issues— imbalances in the body’s stress hormones, adrenaline and cortisol, and the precursor hormone DHEA — can cause a variety of symptoms that seem to be mentally health-related, including depression, anxiety, and insomnia. A chronic excess of stress hormones can make you feel jittery, anxious, unable to sleep, and irritable. A chronic deficiency of stress hormones can make you feel sluggish, tired (even after sleep), moody, depressed, and have difficulty concentrating. Daily fluctuations and imbalances can cause a mix of these symptoms.
Some sex hormone imbalances — progesterone deficiency, estrogen deficiency or dominance, and testosterone deficiency — can cause a variety of symptoms at any point in life. In men, too much estrogen can cause depression or mood swings, and too little testosterone can cause depression, fatigue, mental fogginess, weight gain, and low sex drive. In women, sex hormone imbalances can cause the whole gamut of mental health symptoms: https://www.holtorfmed.com/hormones-mental-health/.
3 COMMON MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES THAT ARE COMMONLY CAUSED BY A HORMONAL DECLINE:
Did you know that research shows a definite connection between hypothyroidism and depression? It’s true – it has been well established that depression is a symptom of low thyroid function. People with depression, anxiety, and psychiatric problems often have low levels of thyroid hormone. Remember, the root cause of depression does not lie in an antidepressant deficiency. Treating depression lies in treating the underlying cause, which often occurs with a decline in your thyroid function.
We have all felt anxiety at certain times, but what about when it starts to become severe and happens more frequently? These feelings are very uncomfortable and can interfere with your daily life. Things you never used to worry about, now can almost paralyze you with fear. Why is this happening? Women are more likely to experience anxiety during times of hormonal fluctuation and decline.
- Brain Fog and Memory Loss
Do you ever have those moments when you walk into a room and can’t remember why you’re there? Or do you ever have trouble recalling names? Or how about the times when you just can’t seem to remember where you left your car keys? Often it’s just a case of brain fog and you don’t have to just live with it: https://www.hotzehwc.com/2018/08/3-common-mental-health-issues-caused-by-hormonal-decline/.
What is Brain Fog?
If you haven’t yet experienced the sensation of “brain fog,” then consider yourself one of the lucky ones. The majority of adults have experienced this at one time or another, if not chronically, throughout their lives. Brain fog is the inability to focus and think clearly. You literally feel like you’re in a mental fog.
Brain Fog Symptoms
Do you experience any of the following symptoms?
- Difficulty concentrating at work or performing basic tasks
• Trouble remembering people’s names or simple words
• Feeling like you’ve lost parts of your memory
• Wondering if you might have the onset of Alzheimer’s
• Feeling like you’re in a fog and state of confusion
• Decreased mental sharpness
• Unable to focus
• Short term memory loss
• Feeling depressed
• Feeling like you are losing your mind
Among the main common causes of Brain Fog are Hormone Deficiencies:
Because the brain uses so much energy, individuals with hypothyroidism (slowed metabolism and less energy) tend to experience a decline in their mental sharpness – the brain fog that so many patients describe. It becomes difficult to maintain focus, sharp memory and clarity. Low thyroid function is a common cause of brain fog, depression, difficulty concentrating and short term memory loss.
Hypothyroidism is often associated with mood disturbances and cognitive impairment, implying that thyroid hormones are critical for normal brain functioning. In particular, hypothyroidism has been associated with several cognitive deficits, including general intelligence, psychomotor speed, visual-spatial skills, and memory.
Estrogen, Progesterone, and Testosterone
The hormones estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone act directly on nerve cells in the brain, protecting those cells from attack by neurotoxins and free radicals. They also enhance the blood flow of the brain, thus protecting against memory loss, cognition and progression of dementia. Progesterone also has a protective effect on the brain by reducing swelling and improving mental clarity after a traumatic brain injury.
Estrogen replacement therapy is associated with improved nonverbal memory and attention. Estrogen and progesterone have a strong effect on memory and improve memory retention. The addition of testosterone to estrogen replacement exerts a protective effect on memory performance in postmenopausal women. Testosterone levels moderate cognitive functioning performance in males: https://www.hotzehwc.com/2017/04/10-common-causes-of-brain-fog-and-memory-loss-and-what-to-do-about-them/.
Part 2. Personality, Hormones, And Food (renewed on November 25, 2019)
Changes in natural hormonal production have a significant influence on mental health. When I worked as a Medical Engineer at an Endocrinology Research Institute and Hospital (Institute Of Marginal Medicine), I had a chance to speak with some patients who had serious hormonal imbalances and their relatives. I was interested in how their personality was changed compared with the personality they had before the beginning of their illnesses. I was quite surprised that some of them changed their personality completely. It means that hormonal imbalances can transform you into another being with an altered ego and radically different emotions, thoughts, and consciousness. Eventually, you are no longer you, living an alien life.
My brief research gave me a clear understanding that our ego, self-consciousness, and self-understanding are material in nature and based on just a set of corresponding hormones. If something changes your set of hormones, it changes you as well. Actually, (besides some other reasons) your present personality is determined by your existing hormonal balance. You may convince yourself that this is untrue and you are always unchangeable, genuine and real. But unfortunately, this isn’t the case, especially if you have a hormonal imbalance.
What are some reasons that can destroy your natural hormonal balance? It can be a toxic environment, long term stress and of course the food you eat. This destructive food includes supplements, medicines, drugs, beverages, plant and/or cooked foods and animal foods containing hormones. The detrimental effects of supplements, medicines, drugs, beverages, and plant and/or cooked foods on the hormonal balance is known quite well.
Now let’s look at the impact of hormones found in animal foods separately. This food holds lots of useful nutrients. But at the same time, hormonal food also has relatively large amounts of alien hormones which influence and even in some cases may make one euphoric, joyous and energetic.
Hormonal food includes some organs, for example adrenals, thyroid, spleen (https://academic.oup.com/endo/article-abstract/37/5/329/2774048?redirectedFrom=fulltext&fbclid=IwAR3ARD4WzEkK7tAdkaEfSh8eGs1mc1bUnxnNLktpV6wtkmrmP0OlCwVU0gY), heart (https://socratic.org/questions/what-hormones-does-the-heart-secrete?fbclid=IwAR32PKKwnjXEC2F_ljUbVmqcHYE86mL_no7KqyAp_mYnWSGoUECEaG18aPk), liver, kidneys, etc., and also oysters, fish roe, eggs, and dairy (see ‘Test On Butter’ and ‘Test On Eggs’ in Article 4).
This means that if you eat these hormonal foods often and for a long period of time, they will eventually impact and change the natural balance and production of your own hormones. On the contrary, muscle meat and fish, contain relatively fewer hormones and don’t harm your health and your personality as much as hormonal foods can.
Also hormonal foods especially liver and kidneys collect toxins (See Article 5). Moreover hormonal foods including shellfish and organ meats, such as liver, brains, and kidneys are rich in purines.
How does hormonal food change the natural balance and production of your own hormones? It can be altered in a few ways. For example, there is a simple rule for all glands — if a gland receives a signal from the blood that the concentration of corresponding hormone (coming from the hormonal food) is suddenly increased, it decreases the production of this hormone. If this happens regularly (meaning you are eating hormonal food every day), the gland decreases the number of cells producing the hormone, and the body’s hormonal balance begins to depend not only on its own hormones but the alien hormones as well. In some other cases, the alien hormone can lead to atrophy of the gland, for example, the pancreas atrophies due to regular injections of insulin. Additionally, this decrease in cells influences some metabolic functions and personality.
In wild nature, carnivores never eat as much hormonal food as often as humans do. Some carnivores may eat organs having hormones first because the organs are softer than meat with bones and may have a different taste and smell pleasant for them plus organs may give them a temporal hormonal boost. They eat organs in relatively fewer amounts if compared with muscle meat.
Animal foods containing hormones gradually change your personality i.e., who you are (we really are what we eat). You can become a kind of hybrid based on the mixture of you and alien animal hormones. This hybrid becomes addicted to the various types of hormonal foods often eaten and feels unwell without them. This hybrid is not the real you and your real thoughts, feelings, etc. Hence, your decisions are not really yours, are they?
It may take quite a long time to bring your own hormones into a natural balance even if you stop eating all hormonal food and other kinds of food that can change your natural hormonal balance.
On the proper non-hormonal foods, you eventually return to yourself and become the real you again. If you ate hormonal food often and for a long time but then stopped for some time, you should notice a difference in your thoughts, emotions, reactions, actions, etc., between the time you used hormonal foods (i.e., alien hormones) and the real you.
It’s always better to restore your own natural hormonal balance by eating proper food than eating addictive hormonal food and experience gradually increasing problems related to the production of your own hormones.
When you have a normal and natural hormonal balance, this means your endocrine system produces the proper quantities of hormones, you are healthy and happy (in a non-euphoric way) and you have your own, natural personality. Your own natural personality is not always unchangeable. It changes from natural causes – aging, genetics and collected experiences (you are very different at age 16 and age 60).
Additionally, a big influence on your personality is your soul which appears as your intuition. More information about the soul you can find in ‘Part 3. Some Thoughts And Conclusions, Using The New Science From The Books Of Nicolai Levashov in Article 6
Part 3. Who Are We Really? (renewed on October 11, 2019)
There is something significant we should consider for all humans besides the variations of personality which we examined above.
Let’s ask an important question — Who are we really, at the present time, with all our pros and cons and with all kinds of personalities?
Unfortunately, it sounds disappointing, but we are all mostly just entirely social and physical products of our parents, society, tribe, culture or social group, where we grew up and live, and nothing else. We are nobody without them. They teach and raise us from the very birth to our last days. They embed us with everything from models of behavior and mentality to our life values. These are mostly irreversible changes which form inside us correspondingly especially at the time of our childhood.
If a person grew up among animals, he/she will irreversibly never become a human and it doesn’t matter what his/her genetics are, personality, race, nationality or brain size. One example of this was most convincingly described by Alexander Nevzorov.
Alexander Nevzorov, a publicist and writer, wrote in his book ‘THE ART OF INSULTING’, Page 53:
” Also remember Mowgli. In Kipling’s legend it is a spoken handsome talker, beamed with the brilliance of ancient Indian gold as well as a friend of cobras, elephants and peasants. But! We know who Kipling wrote of his Mowgli. And we can appreciate the contrast between the famous image and reality.
In the missionary shelters of Sultanopur and Agra, the writer had the opportunity to touch by the end of his cane the authentic “wild” children. The distinctive feature of the “forest” children were bleeding calloused growths on the elbows and knees the size of “a cake for two persons” as they moved only on all fours. The real Mowgli were speechless and no glimmer of intelligence. Dr. D. Wiseau, who examined them, testified that “the wild Hindu boys were real idiots, whatever was the reason for their idiocy.” They soiled everything with their faeces, bit the serviceman for their feet to the blood and constantly masturbated. However, in the conditions of shelter, they usually died faster than that of good Hindus matured the final decision on their strangulation.”
Kipling was a writer and lier who wrote a popular book ‘Mowgli’. A. Nevzorov ironized the Hindu servicemen in his book. The reality was very different and gruesome from the misrepresented fairytale by Kipling. These children who grew up with animals were no longer human in spite of their human body. All attempts to convert them back to human beings produced no results.
Therefore, according to the notion of who we really are — the more you spend your time teaching your kids about the proper diet, rules, and evolution of our society, the more likely it is they will become normal humans with an easier time adapting life among others. Of course, a lot of good and bad information is given to them by their friends, daycare, school, books, TV and the internet.
