HCG Diet- Those last 10 pounds

HCG Diet- Those last 10 pounds

Loosing weight results in Fat cells releasing the fat that is stored in them.

Fat is stored in fat cells the first step is to empty them, the next is to allow the fat cells to be metabolized.  Depending on how many fat cells were created to store this unwanted fat will determine how long it will take to tighten that loose skin and loose that last 10 or so pounds.

 

When you lose weight you are not loosing Fat cells, they are just being emptied

One of our HCG dieters was commenting about the diet, and how difficult it was to lose the last 10 pounds. Although she had been very successful for 3 earlier rounds of HCG,and had lost over 60 pounds, she could not understand why her body had stopped dropping the weight. She was also hungry on this last round, while she had not experienced hunger during the earlier portion of the HCG diet.This experience is not uncommon. What we have found, is that the storage of fat cells eventually gets to be emptied out, and the body tells you it’s time to stop. The constant hunger shows up because there is no more fat storage to live off of. The HCG Diet needs fat to work properly, and when you’re out of extra fat, it’s time to stop, and allow the body to stabilize for awhile.

You have 10 to 20 million fat cells at the time of birth. This causes you to be predisposed to a healthy weight gain in order to grow and develop. As we get older the amount of fat cells grows with us so we wind up with a large amount of fat cells. This gives us a place to store the fat that we use for fuel.

When people who are 40 to 50 pounds overweight begin the diet, it is not uncommon for them to lose 2 or 3 pounds a day. This is more likely to occur in men or women who have a large amount of weight to lose. Unfortunately, when you are more than 15 or 20 lbs overweight, the body is forced to manufacture more fat cells to store the new fat. The body is also forced to create a whole new infrastructure of capillary tubing in order to support all of the additional fat. For every pound of fat, there is one mile of blood vessels required to accommodate it. Consequently, a person who is 40 lbs. overweight requires about 40 miles of capillary tubing to accommodate the fat.

Those last stubborn 10 lbs. is the weight of the infrastructure that was once needed to store the fat. Since fat cells have mass, they also have weight, even though they are empty and tiny. So now we may still have an extra 20 to 50 million extra fat cells, that are adding to the overall weight problem. The Homeopathic HCG did what it was supposed to do by burning all the fat, but the extra cells remain.

So the proverbial last 10 pounds can be a problem for awhile, as the body tries to adjust to the new weight, that doesn’t need the extra cells any longer. Although the 10 to 20 lb. weight loss is rarely a problem as long as the HCG Diet protocol is followed, the last 10 lbs. at the end of a large weight loss plan can take considerably longer, because the body needs time to dispose of the infrastructure of capillaries and extra fat cells. Exercise in the area where the fat was lost, is one way to turn the fat cells into muscle cells.

Time is another way to dissolve the extra weight. After awhile, another short round of HCG is likely to jump start the process again, and you are more likely to get down to your ideal weight.

Hunger is your body’s way of telling you that it wants more nutrition. Eating super foods and the most highly nutritious food you can find after you’re done the diet, will certainly help your body to stabilize. Also, after finishing the HCG diet, most people have been pleasantly surprised to find that it has repaired their metabolism and their cravings for unhealthy food. Conversely, if you go back to the very unhealthy diet or alcohol consumption, that created the problem in the first place, the weight will slowly but surely return.

Optimal Level of a Glycoprotein

Back in the 1950’s, a British doctor stationed in India made a revolutionary discovery. It was possible to target fat, preserve muscle, and rapidly lose weight, comfortably, without starving yourself.

Dr. Simeons found the key was the optimal level of a glycoprotein, naturally found in the body, that triggers fat loss when following a specific diet.

Dr. Simeons successfully treated thousands of people over the next couple of decades with his diet protocol at his practice in Rome, while he carefully analyzed how various foods affected results.

In the 1970’s he published his findings in the groundbreaking book: “Pounds & Inches: A New Approach to Obesity” which you can download for free from this page.

Doctors from all over the world who read Dr. Simeons book came to Rome to see how he was so successful treating obesity.

Many of these doctors were from the United States and they returned to the US and opened Weight Loss clinics using their own variations of Dr. Simeons’ diet protocol.

Ads in newspapers started appearing in the 70’s for ‘fast weight loss’. Unfortunately, the protocol that Dr. Simeons spent decades perfecting had been modified, causing mixed results.

These doctors failed to heed Dr. Simeons’ warning about making variations in his diet protocol which he spent DECADES testing and refining in his own clinic.

Therefore, over time, Dr. Simeons’ Protocol disappeared from the scene.

In the late 90’s, an author named Kevin Trudeau re-introduced the world to Dr. Simeons’ diet protocol with his best-selling book “The Weight Loss Cure They Don’t Want You to Know About”.

Suddenly the Simeons’ Protocol Diet became hot again, but there were 2 problems:

First, Dr. Simeons’ Protocol requires daily injections of a pharmaceutical which is only available by prescription, unless you obtain it illegally.

Secondly, the weight loss clinic may not be adhering to the original Simeons’ protocol.

To solve these problems, TrimYou started in 2009 as the first and only Certifying Organization for weight loss clinics that were following Dr. Simeons’ original Protocol.

Around the same time, a homeopathic version of the pharmaceutical hit the market and people started doing Dr. Simeons’ Protocol without a prescription of hormone injections, and without the steep price of a weight loss clinic.

These homeopathic versions of the pharmaceutical were actually illegal and were labeled and marketed in a way that caught the attention of the FDA and FTC.

Like most people, we didn’t believe switching out the prescription pharmaceutical for a homeopathic substitute would work.

We set out to prove it wouldn’t work and we documented the results.

TrimYou found a FDA-regulated manufacturer that is also certified kosher and organic. Together we set out to produce a test batch of our TrimYou ‘homeotherapeutic’ oral spray.

Because of our unique ‘magnetic remanence’ process, TrimYou Spray is legal without a prescription and it’s the most potent version available.

We ended up proving ourselves wrong: It really was possible to get great results with Dr. Simeons’ Protocol using a homeotherapeutic version of the pharmaceutical.

We have been selling TrimYou Spray on our website since 2009 and we have a 99+% customer satisfaction rate and 99+% success rate with our product.

There are over 30,000 satisfied TrimYou Spray customers that have collectively lost over 1 million pounds.

Try it yourself Risk Free – we have a 30 Day Money Back Guarantee.

And think about this: Over the course of 1 round of Simeons’ Protocol, just 43 days, you’ll save more money on food than the cost of a bottle of TrimYou Spray. It pays for itself!

HCG Spray Usage

How to use the HCG Spray

When the HCG Diet was first developed By Dr. Simeons, he used injections as the means to deliver the substance into the body. He used injections, specifically to avoid having the HCG rendered useless by coming in contact with the existing HCL in the stomach. Since the digestive system would naturally alter the HCG when they came in contact with each other, he had to use an alternate method. As a doctor, he naturally chose injections as the alternate method. Fortunately, we now know that there are better ways to introduce the HCG into the body. The HCG Homeopathic oral spray and drops, applied under the tongue, are the two most popular methods used today.
The drop users have a knee jerk reaction of swallowing before the HCG gets completely absorbed. It's a habit built into all of us. The drops also get diluted with the saliva, and lose some of the potency. As a solution to all of this, the HCG spray became the most effective means of delivery, because when the spray goes directly under the tongue, it instantly covers a larger membrane area all at once. The soft tissue under the tongue is continually flooded with 7 undiluted sprays, ensuring full absorption.
When using the spray remember to use 7 short sprays, just enough to get your tongue moist. If you do 7 long sprays, or extra rounds, you may run out of HCG before you complete the diet. If this occurs, we now have available a half bottle for you to purchase, so you can finish the last couple of weeks of the diet. Seven quick sprays, three times a day, is all you normally need to get the stored fat to start melting away. It will eliminate your hunger pangs as you continue the diet, until you get to your desired weight.

What is a Calorie

One ounce of fat is 219 calories!

If one pound of body fat equals about 3,500 calories.  Then, what exactly is a calorie?

A calorie is a word used as a universal standard. A unit of measure used to define thermal energy. The amount of heat needed to raise the temperature of one gram of water one degree Celsius.

If that didn’t make any sense, then just think of it as the amount of fat in your food. If you ate a pound of fat then you would gain 3500 calories of energy. (One lb of fat) Not vary appetizing, but simple to figure.

example

I’ll give you an example. If you need 4000 calories a day to maintain bodily functions and you eat (take in) 500 calories, your body is forced to use your stored fat to supply you with energy. So you burn up 3500 calories and you lose one pound. You have to deal with the hunger and your body uses the closest supply of fat. and that is not the fat around your middle and butt. The advantages of the HCG Diet are that it signals  the body to use the Large fat stores (belly, butt, thighs) and not the fat stored in the muscle that triggers the hunger. Because of that your metabolism does not slow down, in fact it kicks in because there is enough energy provided to do so.

 

 

 

Homeopathic HCG Diet and H2O

Drinking more water while on the HCG Diet before meals can help promote weight loss.
Drinking more water before meals, especially while on the HCG Diet, can help promote weight loss. Scientists recently reported results of a  new clinical trial confirming that just two 8-ounce glasses of water,  taken before meals, enables people to shed pounds even more easily.

 

We are presenting results of the first randomized controlled intervention trial demonstrating that increased water consumption is helpful in a weight  loss strategy. We found in earlier studies that middle aged and older people who drank two cups of water right before eating a meal ate between 75 and 90 fewer calories during that meal. In this recent study, we found that over the course of 12 weeks, dieters who drank water before meals, three times per day, lost about 5 pounds more than dieters who did not increase their water intake.

Folklore and everyday experience long have suggested that watercan help promote weight loss. But there has been surprisingly little scientific information on the topic. Previous studies hinted that drinking water before meals reduces intake of calories. Lacking until now, however, has been the "gold-standard"
evidence from a randomized, controlled clinical trial that comparesweight loss among dieters who drink water before meals with those who do not.


HCG FAQ

HCG Spray FAQ’s .

hCG_SprayHCSpray

How much weight can I expect to lose with the HCG Homeopathic diet?

Most Homeopathic HCG Spray dieters report a loss of 1 pound per day. Those who have more weight to lose, can actually lose 2 or 3 pounds per day, when they first begin the diet. When the body gets close to it’s ideal weight, it may slow down temporarily to one half pound per day. One pound is generally lost on the first day. Factors that guarantee faster weight loss, include increasing vegetable intake, and adding a green salad to each meal. Fiber intake is extremely important, as well as drinking a minimum of 2 quarts of water per day.


What if I cheat on the diet?

You may
gain a pound or 2 the next day, but you can get right back on
it, and keep going!

 


What if I don’t like drinking water?

Not drinking water can cause
the normal discomfort of detoxing…tiredness, headache, and
irritability. Water is extremely important to remove the toxins from
your stored fat

 


Are there any side effects from taking the HCG Homeopathic?


The only
side effects that you might experience besides weight loss, are
loss of cellulite, and having to buy a whole new wardrobe.
People have also reported… elimination of joint pains,
disappearance of asthma symptoms, and much better sleep at
night.


 Will HCG Homeopathic spray interfere with
other medication?

NO.
Since this is a homeopathic remedy, it will not interfere with
any medication that you may be taking.

 Can I have an occasional glass of wine or
beer?

If you do this,
especially in the first 2 weeks, you will be throwing the body
off ketosis, and gaining back some of the weight that you’ve
lost. Remember, the diet is only for a short while. After you
reach your desired weight, and your metabolism is reset, you can
enjoy an occasional drink without gaining it back.

 Do I need to exercise?


No, but
even a brisk walk will help you to lose weight faster.



Will my skin sag after I lose weight?


Although
you may not look as fit as before you gained the extra pounds,
most people will notice that their skin does tighten up again
after a shot period of time.

Is it healthy to lose 1 to 2 pounds a day with Homeopathic HCG spray?

Yes. Homeopathic HCG spray weight loss studies have shown that weight loss, following the Simeons protocol, comes directly from adipose fat tissue rather than lean muscle. In doing so, the weight loss comes directly from unhealthy stored fat, and does not strip the body of much needed muscle, vitamins, or minerals, essential to maintain good health. At the same time, it releases excessive amounts of fat-stored nutrients into the blood stream to be absorbed by the body. For this reason, HCG dieters often report a feeling and appearance of great health, and they marvel at the disappearance of negative health symptoms, that they had as an overweight individual.


What if I only want to lose 10 lbs?

You can taper off early on
the diet, when you reach your desired weight, but do follow the
protocol for ending it properly, so you can keep it off. Also, you
may lose weight at a slower rate than someone who has lots more
weight to lose.

What
if I have more weight to lose after finishing the 4 oz. bottle
and a 6 week round?

You can purchase another
bottle and just keep going. Unlike other brands, you can safely
continue on the diet for up to 90 days with our product, without a
break. It is important to listen to your body, however. Everyone is
different.

Why the 500 calorie diet – VLCD (very low calorie diet )?


 The
Homeopathic HCG spray causes your
hypothalamus to mobilize the fat out of your
fat storage locations so that it’s available
for use. While you are only consuming 500
calories, your hypothalamus is continually
releasing the fat stored in your body.
Because of this, your body is actually
operating on thousands of calories a day.
The result is that your body is burning
thousands of calories of fat from your body
each day,. This is the reason Homeopathic
HCG dieters lose 1 to 2 lbs of fat or more,
everyday.

 

 

Will I be hungry on 500 calories a day?

Mild hunger during the first few days, may or may not occur, however this particular brand of homeopathic HCG spray has the advantage of being able to be sprayed up to eight times per day. This normally will cure any potential hunger pangs or low blood sugar. You will find even very tiny servings, to be completely satisfying. This is partly due to your hypothalamus adjusting your metabolic rate, but largely due to the amount of calories circulating in your system from the fat being released. It is common that HCG dieters feel as though they are stuffing themselves in order to reach that 500 calorie limit!
What is the difference between Oral HCG and HCG injections?
HCG drops are produced by synthesizing the Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) formula and suspending it into a sublingual mixture. That mixture–the HCG drops–is then administered under the tongue and absorbed into the body. Our HCG drops do not require a prescription, are completely in compliance with FDA regulations, and are absolutely safe to use. HCG injections must be prescribed by a doctor and are administered by a shot into muscle tissue (usually given by the patient himself or herself). The oral formula has been found to be as effective as the shots.
How does HCG help me lose weight?
In pregnant women, HCG releases stored fat to ensure the growing fetus receives the nutrients it needs to grow and develop normally. When HCG is taken in non-pregnant women and men, the body still releases the stored fat. Because there is no fetus present, however, the body uses the stores for energy or eliminates the rest. This enables the body to release stored toxins and fat. Abnormal fat is lost, leaving normal or structural fat and muscle tissue. This means you lose weight in those stubborn areas–hips, thighs, buttocks and upper arms! Click here to get started.
Who can use the HCG diet?
HCG works for both males and females, and there are no age restrictions. It is recommended that you consult a physician before beginning any diet or weight loss program. Do not use HCG if your are pregnant or nursing.
What if I am taking birth control?
HCG drops have not been shown to interfere with birth control.
Are there any side effects from using HCG?
There are no known side effects associated with HCG drops. Most people only experience rapid weight loss as a side effect.
Why don’t HCG drops have to be refrigerated ?
The HCG drops are mixed with 20% USP alcohol as part of it’s liquid medium. The alcohol acts as a preservative and keeps the HCG active and effective. It also aids in absorption. Placing the bottle in the fridge is recommended after the seal has been broken on the bottle. This will help hold it’s potency over longer periods.
Will I keep the weight off?
After the HCG diet you will find your appetite have changed, your eating behavior will have changed and your body will, of course, have changed! This is the perfect opportunity to adopt a healthy lifestyle to maintain your weight. Following the diet, there is a three week maintenance period which is key to keeping the weight off. With your hypothalamus reset, your metabolism will be different and you will be able to eat moderately without feeling the need to overeat .
Why can I only eat 500 calories?
HCG causes your hypothalamus to mobilize the stored fat in your body. During the phase where you are consuming only 500 calories, your hypothalamus continually releases stored fat which your body burns for fuel. You are actually running on 3500-4000 calories a day, which is the equivalent of burning 1-2 pounds!

Hunger is common during the first few days. With any calorie restriction diet, hunger is natural. In most cases the smaller servings can be completely satisfying. This is partly due to your hypothalamus adjusting your metabolic rate, but largely due to the amount of calories circulating in your system from the fat being released.

Do people lose more weight with injections or HCG drops?
Spoiler content
Is HCG just a new fad diet?
HCG has been used medically to treat obesity since 1954. It is recently becoming more widely known and popular in the United States, and that popularity continues to grow as dieters see how effective and easy to use the HCG diet is!
How much weight can I expect to lose with the HCG Homeopathic diet?

How does the HCG diet work

 
The HCG diet was put together in the 1950-60s with 20 years of research by Dr. A.T.W. Simeons, MD. While fat is converted into blood sugar and used as energy, Dr. Simeons’ research showed that the body needed additional proteins. He found that a 500 calorie high protein diet would help in the process of losing weight while using HCG to convert fat for fuel. HCG Diet is most commonly injected into the body. In some areas of the USA, the cost can be as much as $600 to $1200. for the 6 week diet. HCG is short for human chorionic gonadotrophin. This is a hormone that women produce when they are pregnant. The purpose of the hormone is to mobilize fat so the body can change it into blood sugar and feed the fetus 24 hours a day. Homeopathic HCG  Is  a less expensive and easier way to do the diet that still works.    Oral Homeopathic HCG Spray  Our Homeopathic HCG product contains the electrical signatures of HCG, adrenal, thyroid and fat metabolizers in 3x, 6x, 12x, 30x and 60x potencies in a colloidal mineral water base. The Homeopathic HCG is taken a minimum of 3 times a day by putting 8-10 drops under the tongue, or spraying 7 times on the roof of your mouth. On days where you need more help in appetite control, you can use it as many times in a day as you need. Just purchase additional bottles at checkout.

basic function of HCG

Basic function of HCG

The basic function of HCG found naturally in pregnant women, was originally, to keep the blood stream filled with nutrients which the fetus could consume throughout gestation. This function is now being utilized to make the HCG Diet work for everyone. Individuals, both men and women, who are using The HCG diet, are allowing their blood stream to be filled with nutrients that are taken from their stored fat. It is for this reason, that the HCG diet is recommended for individuals who are overweight.

It effectively drops the daily intake of calories to around 500, which is what we recommend during the Homeoppathic HCG Diet. Then, shortly after HCG is introduced, the body begins to derive its nutrient requirements, not just from the nutritional diet that is eaten every day, but also from the already existing stored fat. Thus the reserved fat is burned, in order to provide ATP molecules, and hence the energy. The HCG diet allows dieters to drop 1-2 lbs per day, aiding in weight reduction by reducing hunger, and burning the stored fat that has also been storing toxins.  Many find that  after a few weeks, the diet actually helps them to understand the consumption of more nutritious food, and why it is important to consume healthier proportion sizes.

Hemp Oil Cures Cancer

The question has been asked can you use hemp oil while on the HCG Diet?

We don’t have enough information to answer That question.

The oil is not affected by the HCG because it is Homeopathic HCG.

Many of our customers have been taking essential oils while they were on the diet, and have not been dropped out of ketosis and they  lost the weight they expected to lose.

The hemp oil is basically an essential oil extract. Let us know if you have any success with this. leave a comment for our readers, one way or another. We would like to know.

http://worldtruth.tv/spain-study-confirms-hemp-oil-cures-cancer-without-side-effects/ 

Spain Study Confirms Hemp Oil Cures Cancer without Side Effects

 

The International Medical Veritas Association (IMVA) is putting hemp oil on its cancer protocol. It is a prioritized protocol list whose top five items are magnesium chloride, iodine, selenium, Alpha Lipoic Acid and sodium bicarbonate. It makes perfect sense to drop hemp oil right into the middle of this nutritional crossfire of anti cancer medicines, which are all available without prescription.

 

Hemp oil has long been recognised as one of the most versatile and beneficial substances known to man. Derived from hemp seeds (a member of the achene family of fruits) it has been regarded as a superfood due to its high essential fatty acid content and the unique ratio of

omega3 to omega6 and gamma linolenic acid (GLA) – 2:5:1. Hemp oil, is known to contain up to 5% of pure GLA, a much higher concentration than any other plant, even higher than spirulina. For thousands of years, the hemp plant has been used in elixirs and medicinal teas because of its healing properties and now medical science is zeroing in on the properties of its active substances.

 

Both the commercial legal type of hemp oil and the illegal THC laden hemp oil are one of the most power-packed protein sources available in the plant kingdom. Its oil can be used in many nutritional and transdermal applications. In other chapters in my Winning the War on Cancer book we will discuss in-depth about GLA and cancer and also the interesting work of Dr. Johanna Budwig. She uses flax seed oil instead of hemp oil to cure cancer – through effecting changes in cell walls – using these omega3 and omega6 laden medicinal oils.

 

Actually there is another way to use medical marijuana without smoking the leaf. According to Dr. Tod H. Mikuriya, “The usual irritating and toxic breakdown products of burning utilized with smoking are totally avoided with vaporization. Extraction and inhaling cannabinoid essential oils below ignition temperature of both crude and refined cannabis products affords significant mitigation of irritation to the oral cavity, and tracheobronchial tree from pyrollytic breakdown products.[iii]

 

 

Rick Simpson, the man in the documentary below, has been making hemp oil and sharing it with friends and neighbors without charging for it.

In small doses, he says, it makes you well without getting you high.

“Well you can’t deny your own eyes can you?” Simpson asks. “Here’s someone dying of cancer and they’re not dying anymore. I don’t care if the medicine comes from a tomato plant, potato plant or a hemp plant, if the medicine is safe and helps and works, why not use it?” he asks.

 

When a person has cancer and is dying this question reaches a critical point. The bravery of Rick Simpson from Canada in showing us how to make hemp oil for ourselves offers many people a hope that should be increasingly appreciated as money dries up for expensive cancer treatments. We are going to need inexpensive medicines in the future and there is nothing better than the ones we can make reasonably cheaply ourselves.

 

For most people in the world it is illegal so the choice could come down to breaking the law or dying. There is no research to indicate what advantages oral use of hemp oil vs. vaporization but we can assume that advantage would be nutritional with oral intake. Dr.

Budwig Below work would sustain this point of view especially for cancer patients.

The Science

 

According to Dr. Robert Ramer and Dr. Burkhard Hinz of the University of Rostock in Germany medical marijuana can be an effective treatment for cancer.[v] Their research was published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute Advance Access on December 25th of 2007 in a paper entitled Inhibition of Cancer Cell Invasion by Cannabinoids via Increased Expression of Tissue Inhibitor of Matrix Metalloproteinases-1.

 

The biggest contribution of this breakthrough discovery, is that the expression of TIMP-1 was shown to be stimulated by cannabinoid receptor activation and to mediate the anti-invasive effect of cannabinoids. Prior to now the cellular mechanisms underlying this effect were unclear and the relevance of the findings to the behavior of tumor cells in vivo remains to be determined.

 

Marijuana cuts lung cancer tumor growth in half, a 2007 Harvard Medical School study shows.[vi] The active ingredient in marijuana cuts tumor growth in lung cancer in half and significantly reduces the ability of the cancer to spread, say researchers at Harvard University who tested the chemical in both lab and mouse studies.

 

This is the first set of experiments to show that the compound, Delta-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), inhibits EGF-induced growth and migration in epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) expressing non-small cell lung cancer cell lines. Lung cancers that over-express EGFR are usually highly aggressive and resistant to chemotherapy. THC that targets cannabinoid receptors CB1 and CB2 is similar in function to endocannabinoids, which are cannabinoids that are naturally produced in the body and activate these receptors.

 

“The beauty of this study is that we are showing that a substance of abuse, if used prudently, may offer a new road to therapy against lung cancer,” said Anju Preet, Ph.D., a researcher in the Division of Experimental Medicine. Acting through cannabinoid receptors CB1 and CB2, endocannabinoids (as well as THC) are thought to play a role in variety of biological functions, including pain and anxiety control, and inflammation.

 

Researchers reported in the August 15, 2004 issue of Cancer Research, the journal of the American Association for Cancer Research, that marijuana’s constituents inhibited the spread of brain cancer in human tumor biopsies.[vii] In a related development, a research team from the University of South Florida further noted that THC can also selectively inhibit the activation and replication of gamma herpes viruses. The viruses, which can lie dormant for years within white blood cells before becoming active and spreading to other cells, are thought to increase one’s chances of developing cancers such as Kaposi’s Sarcoma, Burkitt’s lymphoma and Hodgkin’s disease.[viii]

 

In 1998, a research team at Madrid’s Complutense University discovered that THC can selectively induce programmed cell death in brain tumor cells without negatively impacting surrounding healthy cells. Then in 2000, they reported in the journal Nature Medicine that injections of synthetic THC eradicated malignant gliomas (brain tumors) in one-third of treated rats, and prolonged life in another third by six weeks.[ix]

Internal Bacteria May Alter Brain Chemistry

May 22, 2011

Internal Bacteria May Alter BrainChemistry

The role of gut bacteria in the body may extend beyond the stomach and
intestines all the way to the brain, a new study in mice suggests.

The results show disrupting the normal gut flora of the mice leads to changes
in the animals’ behavior, making them less timid and more adventurous, as well
as leading to changes in their brain chemistry.

Although it’s not clear if the same thing happens in humans, the findings may
explain why some gastrointestinal diseases, such as irritable bowel syndrome,
are often associated with disorders that can affect behavior, including
depression and anxiety.

“It may be that those changes in gut bacteria not only contribute to the
generation of gut symptoms, like diarrhea or pain, but may also contribute to
this altered behavior that we see in those patients,” said researcher Stephen
Collins, of the Farncombe Family Digestive Health Research Institute at McMaster
University in Ontario, Canada.

The study is published online in the journal Gastroenterology.

Bacteria and behavior

Previous studies have suggested gut bacteria may communicate with the brain.
For instance, some people with liver disease experience changes in mental
abilities that improve after they are given antibiotics. Other studies have
shown mice that don’t have gut bacteria respond differently to stress compared
with those that do.

To further investigate the link, Collins and his colleagues first gave
healthy mice antibiotics to disturb their natural gut bacteria. The mice became
less anxious — they were less hesitant to step off a platform and more eager to
explore. When their gut bacteria was restored to normal, so was their behavior.
Control mice that were given water instead of antibiotics showed no changes in
behavior. Mice that didn’t have any gut bacteria also showed no changes in
behavior when they received antibiotics.

Disrupting the contents of the gut also appears to affect brain chemistry.
Mice given antibiotics had an increased amount of a brain protein called derived
neurotrophic factor, or BDNF, in their brains compared to control mice. Changes
in the levels of BDNF have been previously linked to depression and anxiety.

Next, the researchers carried out some gut bacteria swapping of sorts.
Different strains of mice are known to exhibit different behavior patterns. Some
are more anxious while others are aggressive and hyperactive. The researchers
took mice from both extremes and exchanged their gut bacteria. They saw the
behavior flipped as well — the anxious mice became more active and daring and
the aggressive mice became more passive.

Probiotics for the brain

The researchers suspect the bacteria are producing chemicals that can access
and influence the brain, Collins said.

If gut bacteria play some role in human behavior as well, it’s possible
therapies that aim to restore normal gut flora, such as probiotics, may be
helpful in correcting behavior and mood changes in those with gastrointestinal
diseases, Collins said.

Collins and his colleagues are now studying the gut bacteria composition of
patients with gastrointestinal disorders. They want to see whether the content
differs among those who have symptoms of depression and anxiety compared with
those who do not.
