    Does concussion related pituitary damage factor into PTSD?...

    Can PTSD symptoms be traced to concussion-induced pituitary damage?
    December 1, 2014 ~ Concussions from bomb blasts and post-traumatic stress disorder — the two signature wounds of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq — can be difficult to distinguish from each other. Cognitive problems, sleep trouble and irritability are common symptoms of both.

    A lot of illegal illicit drugs have medicinal and therapeutic appplications. That they're illegal is ridiculous. Ecstasy for instance was originally used in couples therapy with spectacular results, then some asshat got it banned. Presumedly since if everyone loved each other, things would be better and all those pooor death merchants in the defense community would be out of work.

    That drugs like ecstasy are illegal with proven therapy-worth but alcohol is legal only causing harm, aggression, and violent acting-out shows the utter absurdity of US drug policies.

    Two Illegal Drugs May Soon Be Legal Medicine in US

A growing body of scientific evidence is leading the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to take a closer look at cannabidiol, an extract of marijuana, and MDMA, an ingredient in the party drug ecstasy.

    Scanning for PTSD patterns is valid, though leaving out serotonin-transporter patterns coupled to COMT and enzyme activity also comes with its milliseconds of action. Thus, the scanning approach may sample at more time-points than other methods, but this takes the wholistic system of PTSD out of context: what you have in your test-tubes is not Nature.
