    New research showed positive remission of 17 weeks in mice after injecting a hormone directly to their brains (link below). Ever since becoming sick I've been insulin resistant and wondered whether pots and possibly me could be just brain diseases. Possibly to treat the brain directly to see more of a cure from treating symptoms.

    Brain fog is common in many "incurable" diseases? Could it be because many originate in the brain and before now we've been unable to break the blood brain barrier? All purely theoretical. But we can never give up. People will keep getting sick, it's time for better answers.

    That's interesting. Conversely intranasal insulin is being trialled for cognitive and other symptoms in Gulf War Illness :
