Fruity Endorphins

I have been taking low dose naltrexone (LDN) for quite sometime now. One of the thing the drug does is that it triggers the release of endorphins.

Endorphins are natural hormones that produced by the pituitary gland and the hypothalamus in vertebrates during exercise, excitement, pain, consumption of spicy food, love and orgasm thereby providing you a sense of well-being. In turn, endorphins naturally combat stress.

Besides LDN, you can try the following to get the endrophins released:

1. Exercise - just 30 minutes a day.
2. Eat Dark Chocolate - just a piece a day.
3. Be happy - have positive thoughts and be optimistic and inspired.
4. Eat something spicy - like chewing hot pepper on your tongue. It can also relief pain!
5. Laugh - true laugh, not the forced one. Have you tried to laugh silly in a room?
6. Be Silly! - make fun of your eating habits or yourself!
7. Use Your Senses - senses of touch, smell, hearing and sight such as go barefoot, listen to sound of birds chirping, etc.
8. Listen to music! - especially if you had a bad day.

Red Fruit
Thanks to two of my friends, I was given two bottles of Buah Merah or red fruit oil to try. Unfortunately, nothing much was written in the label and I am not sure if sugar was added although it did say it's 100% pure red fruit oil.

I have also read in the Net that there are many unscrupulous traders that will mix it with a red coloring agent while another producer in Thailand says that it takes between 20-30kg of red fruits to produce 250ml of oil. It warned that many buyers are being conned and did not check the concentration of the oil.

Anyway, one of the friend said the oil is brought back directly from Indonesia through another friend and he said many have tried and got good results. He urged me to try. I will try.

Guys, thank you very much for your efforts and I really appreciate it very much.


  1. CT,

    As much as friends try to be overly helpful, you must be careful about going overboard trying too much stuff. Its easy for people to say try this and that but at the end of the day, you are not their specimen. Keep focussed.

  2. I am going to order some of the Buah Merah oil.

    After researching about it, "I don't think it will do harm, even if it doesn't help." I am willing to try:NOTHING VENTURED, NOTHING GAINED - " You can't get anywhere unless you're willing to take a risk." The saying dates back to Chaucer (c. 1374).

    People will take chemotherapy...knowing it is a very severe poison, and let themselves be radiated...knowing tests show radiation actually causes cancer;...and yet something in nature, shown not to be harmful (like the Buah Merah, consumed as food by the natives of New Guinea)...that could possibly be helpful, "they're afraid to try!"

    There is a movie that is very worth watching, "Lorenzo's Oil" (1992).
    The real life events in the story took place from 1984 to 1987 and the film provides actual dates. The film itself was made in 1992.
    Lorenzo's Oil is a powerful, moving, and inspiring film based on the true story of how two loving parents search for a way to prevent their only son of dying of a rare hereditary disease. Eventually, through sheer perseverance plus a miracle or two, they manage to find a treatment which halts the development of the symptoms, called Lorenzo's Oil. In the process, they adopt a do-it-yourself approach to medicine that raises the ire of scientists and even other parents of children afflicted with the disease. The film ends showing healthy children who are able to avoid the symptoms of the disease by taking Lorenzo's Oil.

    I guess...I don't trust Drs. enough; and have developed a "do-it-yourself" approach to healing. I am willing to be a "Guinea Pig."

    Wishing You Well,
