Dr Kelly Brogan`helping women's depression:
Health Ranger told us about Brogan's new book.
me:
I gave amazon a piece of my mind about the one-star reviews

me:
I (a male) was surprised you would be offended by
this author targetting women;
About twice as many women as men experience depression.
. it was right there in the title of her book;
this book would be nurturing women!
this author has written plenty for both sexes
and much of it is free, and appreciated by this male (phil torrance):

"pharmaceuticals, ...must pass stringent FDA approval processes,"
-- proving better than placebo efficacy
is not proof of safety (read the Physician's Desk Reference)

"leaky gut syndrome" a made-up illness?
if you want the science on that,
the keyword is "intestinal permeability"
eg, the Annals of the New York Acedemy of Sciences
connects intestinal permeability (AKA leaky gut syndrome)
with the development of autoimmune diseases.
Ann N Y Acad Sci. 2009
(University of Groningen, Groningen, the Netherlands).
"There is growing evidence that increased intestinal permeability
plays a pathogenic role in various autoimmune diseases
including celiac disease and type 1 diabetes,
Therefore, we hypothesize that
besides genetic and environmental factors,
loss of intestinal barrier function
is necessary to develop autoimmunity."

. "intestinal permeability" or "leaky gut"
is epidemic from the use of glycophosate herbicide;
if you don't believe that, consider this:
something is causing an increase in autoimmune disorders
and the establishment is not sure why;
(decrease in infections over past 3 decades?
-- comment about vaccines for everything?
infections both cause and prevent?
changes in microbiota caused by changes in lifestyle?);
so it makes sense they know nothing about "leaky gut syndrome".
. everyone just keep doing what you did in the past 3 decades;
because leaky gut is just made up!
but it's getting worse: Between just 2001 and 2009,
the incidence of type 1 diabetes increased by 23%.

24 million Americans with autoimmune diseases.
Gastrointestinal symptoms in type 1 diabetes are often attributed to
autonomic neuropathy, which is said to slow down GI transit time (3).
However, other studies suggest that
increased intestinal permeability (IIP)
is the cause of both the onset of type 1 diabetes
and GI symptoms frequently experienced in type 1 diabetes (4).
In a study looking at intestinal permeability of
diabetic prone research mice,
Meddings et al., found that increased intestinal permeability
preceded the onset of diabetes by at least one month (5).
Watts et al, replicated this study and found that
increased intestinal permeability preceded
the onset of type 1 diabetes by 2-3 weeks.
Other researchers then looked further at
the protein called zonulin,
which is known to regulate intestinal permeability.
They found that zonulin levels were increased,
along with intestinal permeability,
before the onset of diabetes in the same animal model.
When they administered a zonulin-inhibiting drug,
they were able to decrease the incidence of type 1 diabetes (6).

. "conspiracy theorist with an irrational fear of
the FDA, "Big Pharma" and all corporations";
-- hardly an irrational fear;
24 million Americans with autoimmune diseases
and that problem is only increasing.

"Mercola, Mad In America and Green Med Info,
three of the largest sources of misinformation"
-- hardly the largest source;
if you want to know establishment misinfo
then ask some alternative medicine sources.

about Kelly Brogan
... I went to her website to find out about
some of the resources she mentions in the book,
and end up reading all about her anti-vaccine movement.
I believe she has a right to her beliefs,
but her use of "research" (or her ignoring of research)
to "prove" her anti-vaccine opinions
is so poorly done (meaning that she will
find some sort of "research" for whatever she believes).
me:
do you think she is against all vaccines?
keep in mind that vaccines are not without risks;
and now they want us to take the flu vaccine every single year?!
what are you doing to the rest of the population
in order to save a few deaths from the flu?!
...
flu vaccines cause inflammation in depressed pregnant women?
[Cindy Schneider, M.D., SafeMinds Scientific & Clinical Advisor]
There has been surprisingly little research in this area,
but a study by Christian et al following
pregnant women given a seasonal flu vaccine
found an increase in two inflammatory markers, C reactive protein (CRP)
and tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-a).
Increases in these inflammatory compounds indicate
a significant level of inflammation,
which was identified during the first two days following vaccination.

This increase of inflammation was confirmed in a study
that documented a higher level of
post-vaccine immune activation in pregnant women
than in non-pregnant controls receiving flu vaccines.

An earlier study by Lisa Christian, Ph.D. and her colleagues
found that pregnant women suffering from depression
developed a more marked inflammatory response to influenza vaccines
than women who did not have symptoms of depression.

There is reason to be concerned about these findings.
A recent study by Alan Brown, M.D. and his colleagues
of over 1.2 million pregnant women found that
elevations in CRP, the same marker of inflammation
that increases after flu vaccination,
are associated with a 43% greater risk
of having a child with autism.
