Questions of a waundering mind
worn1 posted:
Good morning everyone
I am on vacation for 2 weeks and while working in the yard and playing with taz and shadow. My mind has started to wonder and some of the questions comming up are the following:
Is there any way Parkinson can be related to fibromyalgia? Both dopamine and serotonin are nerotransmitters. If serotonin becomes depleted would this cause dopmine to become depleted. Or could some event or chemical affect both serotonin and dopamine The brain responds to one but not the other. By responding to say the attack on dopamine it ends up destroying it but in the process also eliminated the danger to serotonin allowing for serotonin to survivie.

Could the elimination of carpets, chemicals used in cleaning the house in addition to eating organic foods start the reversal of dopamine destruction?

Since neurotransmitters are dependent on each other what keeps other diseases from appearing?For instance Parkinson and MS
at the same time.

The liver can regenerate itself when damaged. Why can't the rest of the organs do so? Where is the on and off switch?

If science can change astrocytes to dopamine why doesn't the brain change it.?

Do you wonder about the cause and cure of parkinson's and other diseases of the brain. If so what are your questions and thoughts
