Yet more items of interest from WIZARD through Harry at Sharkhunters.
"PTSD REPAIR - A simple course of antibiotics could dramatically reduce the distress experienced by people suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), a new trial has found. The discovery by University College London gives hope of better treatment for thousands of soldiers and victims of violence afflicted by the condition. Researchers identified 'matrix enzymes', crucial for the formation of memories, and realized that a course of commonly available doxycycline could target the enzymes and reduce the fear response triggered by remembering traumatic events by as much as 60 per cent."
SEEMS WAY TO SIMPLE. REDUCTION OF 60 % OF SYMPTOMS BY SIMPLE APPLICATION OF A MEDICATION? IF SO, THIS COULD BE MAJOR!
