It was first developed in the '80's for use with children with ADD and other &quot;behavioral problems&quot;. Further studies showed that it accomplished therapeutic improvements by stimulating ganglial (nerve receptor) growth in the meningial tissue which seperates the two halves of the brain, bringing about a rebalancing and rebuilding of brain function, which had the effects of stablizing mood disorders, which is to say sometimes curing depression, bipolar disorders, memory impairments and other various symptoms of brain dysfunction. The product is sold on CD's or Tapes which must be used with Stereo Headsets, so that the alternating subliminal sounds may stimulate the two sides of the brain to resolve this inequitible input, and thereby stimulate nerve receptor activation and even regrowth. This is a permanent improvement and does not diminish with time.

There is a massive amount of evidence that suggests that low serotonin levels are a common consequence of modern living. The lifestyle and dietary practices of many people living in this stress-filled era results in lowered levels of serotonin within the brain. As a result, many people are overweight, crave sugar and other carbohydrates, experience bouts of depression, get frequent headaches, and have vague muscle aches and pain. All of these maladies are correctable by raising brain serotonin levels. The primary therapeutic applications for 5-HTP are low serotonin states as listed in Table 1. Table 1. Conditions associated with low serotonin levels helped by 5-HTP Depression Obesity Carbohydrate craving Bulimia Insomnia Narcolepsy Sleep apnea Migraine headaches Tension headaches Chronic daily headaches Premenstrual syndrome Fibromyalgia Although 5-HTP may be relatively new to the United States health food industry, it has been available through pharmacies for several years and has been intensely researched for the past three decades. It has been available in several European countries as a medicine since the 1970s.

While benzodiazepines tend to promote lethargy and mental impairment, kava has been shown to improve concentration, memory, and reaction time for people suffering from anxiety. Kava has been clinically demonstrated as a means of achieving a state of relaxation without the adverse side effects. Kava is mildly narcotic and produces mild euphoric changes characterized by elevated mood, fluent and lively speech and increased sense of sound. Higher doses can lead to muscle weakness, visual impairment, dizziness and drying of the skin. Long term use of the herb can contribute to hypertension, reduced protein levels, blood cell abnormalities, or liver damage. Alcohol consumption increases the toxicity of the pharmacological constituents. It is not recommended for those who intend on driving or where quick reaction time is required. Kava is the most relaxing botanical herb with exception of the opium poppy. Pharmacological studies show kava kava's active ingredients, kavalactones, produce physical and mental relaxation and a feeling of well being. It has also been used in the treatment of ailments of the genitourinary tract including vaginitis, gonorrhea and menstrual cramps. Kava is a diuretic and an anti-inflammatory, thus useful for gout, rheumatism, bronchial congestion, cystitis and prostatis. It is an effective local anesthetic and pain reliever when applied externally as a liniment. The relaxed state and sharpening of senses also contribute to aphrodisiac effect.

It helps with racing thoughts and bipolar disorder. I only smoke a small amount once a day, usually at night because it helps me sleep. I find it a better treatment than prescription meds because it doesn't have any severe side effects and I believe is not as dangerous. I've been on many meds for my bipolar and still haven't found the right one so I decided to engage in this for treatment. To me, it works better than any medicine I have taken and I've been medicated since 2001. I would recommend it for those who have tried various meds and still don't see any results...just do it in moderation. conanrox Sat, 24 Mar 2007 05:41:51 +0000 Morinda Citrafolia http://forums.psychcentral.com/reviews/showproduct.php?product=85 <a href="http://forums.psychcentral.com/reviews/showproduct.php?product=85" target="_blank"><img border="0" src="http://forums.psychcentral.com/reviews/images/nothumb.gif" alt="" /></a><br /><br />by: razeljenny<br /><br />Description: It comes in power and in juice-NOni Juice.

I have to be taking it for two weeks for it to be effective but I notice right away the calming effect it has and I begin sleeping better right away. During the day, I feel as I said eariler even and balanced.
