Potential Microglia Inhibitors - Mostly from Jarred Younger's Stanford talk

The microglia surround and protect the neurons in our brains and spinal cord. The main immune defenders in the brain, they spew out an array of inflammatory and neurotoxic substances when activated. Theses substances cause the symptoms associated with ‘sickness behavior’ when we have a cold such as fatigue, pain, mental fogginess, etc.
Some researchers believe the microglia have been primed to respond to substances called alarmins that are generated by cellular stress in Chronic...

You like Kratom? My ex-girlfriend with terrible pain problems likes Kratom :)

I actually haven't used it yet. It kind of scares me. I keep having this vision of those wasted Indian dudes with the paint on their faces who smoke kratom all day long.

This editorial published yesterday by renowned Alzheimer's researchers seems to be getting some attention -- and could wind up helping some of us.

Everything keeps pointing to inflammation.

So, you think Alzheimer is caused by a virus? But why does the immune system control the virus long before the illness breaks out and then, all of a sudden, isn't capable of that anymore? Isn't it more like the immune system cannot remove the plaque and (because the IS is active all the time) that leads to the symptoms? Just a thought
