this post suggests (they also don't know)
Endorphins decrease serotonin levels.
"Endorphin- and serotonine-metabolism are closely related, and opioid peptides can directly inhibit serotonine release. (23) Therefore, besides sleeplessness, opioid peptides can also cause depressions. In chronically depressed people, free endorphin level is 3 fold higher (24) (because part of endorphin receptors have been destroyed)"
Is this information correct...?
If so LDN takers need to watch out for decreasing levels of Serotonin ?!
I too have no idea!
I do know you should be very cautious when you first try ldn as I experienced pretty scary depression that night, and first few nights ,
I think ldn is more powerful than it is considered and does at least in me have side effects. I've been reading of many side efefcts and it expalins many of the things I've experienced lately and hadn't linked with the ldn.. but couold be coincidence.. like itchy skin even?
