Limbic Kindling — Hardwiring the Brain for Hypersensitivity


Beyond Meds looks at limbic kindling – “one of the most exciting concepts in neuroscience you’ve never heard of. And it’s becoming a key model being examined as a possible theoretical basis for MultipleChemical Sensitivity (MCS) and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)” – and provides information on how the autonomic nervous system is impacted in psychiatric drug withdrawal and how that is similar in many different chronic illnesses.

  1. I am very leary of this term or idea of “limbic kindling” in that psychiatry pushed the bogus theory of the brain kindling like those of epileptics as causing the fraud fad bipolar lie to push bogus new lethal, useless epileptic drugs on patent like Depakote as Dr. David Healy explains in his great book, Mania: A Short History of Bipolar Disorder.

  2. You really don’t need to use the term…I’ve been operating on the basic underlying principles for a couple of years now without it…this was the first time I’d heard it. The fact is the theory behind it is sound and proven in my own body and the bodies of many of us who have recovered. We see it play out in wondrous beauty.

    That term is that authors alone…there are many of us already utilizing the principles without having attached any term to it at all. That is why I also linked to a prior post where I talk about the same thing without the term limbic kindling. see:

    What is significant is that we are neuroplastic and can heal the entire mind/body/spirit. The body is interconnected with all things and therefore everything in our lives, bodies, environments matter and must be considered and tended to. The short-sighted-ness an obsession with quick fixes from medicine and those who utilize medicine both deny this beautiful complexity at the expense of our healing.
