chronic stress, adrenalin receptors, & cancer cell proliferation…..
“Chronic stress accelerates metastasis – the main cause of death in cancer patients – through the activation of β-adrenoceptors (βARs).”
“….to investigate the contribution of β2-adrenoceptor signaling in tumor cells to metastasis in vivo, we used RNA interference to generate MDA-MB-231HM breast cancer cells that are deficient in β2-adrenoceptors.”
“These findings highlight a crucial role for β2-adrenoceptor tumor cell signaling in the adverse effects of stress on metastasis, and indicate that it may be necessary to block β2-adrenoceptors on tumor cells to fully control metastatic progression.”

cognitive behavioral therapy -vs- tinnitus……
“Tinnitus has a substantially negative impact on quality of life in up to 5% of the general population. Internet-based cognitive-behavioral treatment has been shown to be effective in a few trials. The aim of our study was to investigate internet-based cognitive-behavioral treatment for tinnitus by using a randomized controlled trial.”

“Patients with severe tinnitus-related distress were randomly assigned to therapist-guided internet-based cognitive-behavioral treatment or to a moderated online discussion forum.”
“Within-group effects for the internet-based cognitive-behavioral treatment, from pretreatment to follow-up, were substantial in regard to tinnitus-related distress….”

“Using a randomized controlled trial design, we replicated prior findings regarding positive effects of internet-based cognitive-behavioral treatment on tinnitus-related distress and associated symptoms. Implementing internet-based cognitive-behavioral treatment for tinnitus into regular health care will be an important next step to increase access to treatment for patients with tinnitus.”

Cognitive Behavior Therapy [CBT]
Cognitive Behavior Therapy [CBT] and Cognitive Enhancement Therapy tend to be the among the only treatments for depression, schizophrenia, and various forms of “mental illness” that address the underlying issues of brain cell loss.
Arguably “mental illness” is due to brain cell loss.
The drug approach focuses on neurotransmitters, ignoring the loss of brain cells that produce the neurotransmitters.
