That’s the combo I use when my cramps are really acting up.

Anaconda, Bodies , and Books: The most likely chemical in chocolate that might explain its feel-good effect is PEA, of which there can be up to 700 mg in a 100 g bar (0.7%). Most chocolate contains much less than this, and a more typical amount would be 50-100 mg. In its pure state PEA is an oily liquid with a fishlike smell, and it can be made in the laboratory from ammonia. (PEA has the curious property of absorbing carbon dioxide from the air.) When people are injected with PEA, the level of glucose in their blood goes up and so does their blood pressure. These effects combine to produce a feeling of well-being and alertness. PEA may trigger the release of dopamine, which is the brain chemical that makes us feel happy, in which case PEA would be acting in the same way as amphetamines such as ecstasy. PEA and ecstasy molecules are roughly the same shape and size, and this has led to the suggestion that they might work in the same way, but scientific proof is lacking that they do. Our own bodies produce tiny but detectable amounts of PEA naturally, and it is formed from an essential dietary amino acid called phenylalanine. The level of natural PEA varies and it increases when we are under stress. It is also higher than normal in schizophrenics and hyperactive children, but this is more likely to be a symptom of these conditions rather than their cause. Not everyone can cope with a sudden influx of PEA, which is why some people are sensitive to chocolate, often suffering a violent headache if they eat too much. This happens because the excess PEA constricts the walls of blood vessels in the brain. The human body has little use for PEA and employs an enzyme, monoamine oxidase, to dispose of it. People whose bodies are intolerant of chocolate appear to have difficulty making enough of the enzyme to prevent the PEA building up to levels that triggers migraines. symbisexual-disaster: Trying to learn more about chocolate and PEA, thought this was an interesting resource! Link In order to get his fix, Venom probably stops the MAO enzyme from getting rid of the PEA. Then he just sucks it up himself so that Eddie doesn’t get headaches. If I’m understanding this right, a chocolate-intolerant person would greatly benefit from bonding with a symbiote. Since chocolate-intolerants don’t make enough of the MAO enzyme, they need to either a) not eat chocolate ever if they don’t want a migraine or b) hook up with a symbiote that will slurp it up for them!  So it might be fun to write either Eddie or an OC who could never enjoy chocolate before, but after bonding, somehow is actually able to? Fun fun.

Community, Doctor, and Facebook: MEDICAL MIRACLE: MAN'S BRAIN TUMOR VANISHES WITHOUT SURGERY Several doctors are dumbfounded after finding a patient’s suspected malignant brain tumor disappeared without surgical treatment, giving the patient a renewed sense of hope. CBS Sacramento reported Friday that the neurosurgeons and specialists in charge of treating Paul Wood, a patient from Lodi, California, are scratching their heads after brain scans revealed his tumor disappeared the day before he was scheduled for surgery. Wood, a father and volunteer in his community, noticed something was amiss several months ago when he could barely stand up straight. “I had massive headaches, I couldn’t walk down the hallway without holding on to the walls,” he said. The Lodi man went to his primary care doctor, who referred him to a neurosurgeon at UC San Francisco. The neurosurgeon said his brain was bleeding, but radiologists said there was evidence of a tumor. Wood, who considers himself a man of faith, turned to his community for support. But what he did not expect was the overwhelming amount of prayer and support for him on social media. “My phone is blowing up, my Facebook is prayer after prayer, all over California,” said Wood. When doctors took another brain scan the day before his operation, they canceled the surgery because the tumor had disappeared. Wood said it was nothing short of a “miracle” from God. “It’s a miracle and that is the way God planned it,” he said. Wood’s doctor struggled to explain why the tumor disappeared, admitting that there are some things “that we can’t explain.” “We do tests and we have medical technology and we try to come up with some conclusion… sometimes things happen that we can’t explain,” said Dr. Richard.

Energy, Memes, and Anxiety: MAGIC MUSHROOMS @TRUTH SOCIETY Did you know psychedlic mushrooms have incredible health benefits? Psilocybin mushrooms have been used in a therapeutic setting to treat a wide variety of ailments and disorders including cluster headaches, OCD, anxiety, depression, and addiction. Archaeological evidence from the Sahara desert🌵 suggests that humans have been using hallucinogenic mushrooms🍄 for 7000 years or more. Mushrooms are represented in prehistoric art across many geographic regions. The spiritual and medicinal use of these sacred fungi🍄 dramatically influenced ancient civilization.🌈 - Even though emerging studies suggest a wide variety of health benefits👍 from consuming psilocybin, the psychedelic mushrooms continue to remain schedule 1.👮‍♂️ Has anyone else noticed that often the substances that are good for our health and expand our minds are against the law?🤔 Hmm I wonder why..🙄 - ❗️Keep in mind that the responsible use of these sacred substances in a therapeutic environment is key to success.💯 Ideally you would take the mushrooms under the guidance of someone experienced with entheogens.❤️ - A growing number of people are also experimenting with consuming a sub-perceptual amount of psylocybin.👀 Microdosing psilocybin can be a powerful method to achieve higher levels of creativity, more energy, increased focus, and improved relational skills.😎

This Is Important. I always had really really horrible growing pains as a kid.  Like, I clearly remember being curled up on the floor crying because it felt like some evil person had stuck a fork in my calf and was twisting it around like spaghetti.  Mom always had me take ibuprofen for it, and when that didn’t do anything, she just gave me more. Now the stuff barely works on me, even when I take it for the things it actually fixes. Please, please, double-check to make sure you’re taking the right medicines for your pain. My mom always gave me tylonel for period cramps as a kid and it never did anything. It’s nice to know now that she was literally giving me the least effective option And please PLEASE note that as the chart says, acetaminophen “can be taken with NSAIDs”, which means you can take Tylenol/acetaminophen AND one of the other listed pain-relievers. My mom has been a doctor for 40+ years, and her standard advice for headaches is, take two regular-strength Advil, and then if that doesn’t work, ALSO take two regular-strength Tylenol.
