Hey guys month 6 hppd journey things are better now. I have very rare visuals,but it's mostly visual snow and tinnitus.

I found and i'm trying a herb which takes 8 to 12 weeks to work but might solve my problems finally.

Its name is bacopa monnieri.

One of the only herbs known to upregulate gaba receptors.

Currently i use lemon balm and with increased usage i see my tinnitus quiets down and my visual snow is less.

Lemon balm, Melissa officinalis, is an annual edible herb that’s native to Europe. Its traditional medical applications focus on the essential oil components of the plant and on rosmarinic acid for relaxation properties. Studies showed that the traditional relaxing effects may be linked to elevated levels of the neurotransmitter GABA (γ-aminobutyric acid) by inhibiting GABA-transaminase (GABA T), an enzyme that degrades GABA. Rosmarinic acid is thought to be responsible for this effect.

Lemon balm also protects against excitotoxicity and mediates the problem.

One of the theories of hppd is a reduction of gaba receptor right down to destroyed gaba receptors.

Bacopa Monnieri is an adaptogen herb and a precursor to the GABA-boosting neurotransmitter serotonin, and it appears to upregulate GABA binding sites with consistent, long-term use.

Bacopa supports dopamine and serotonin production, which is good for GABA. But more importantly for tinnitus control, it can upgrade neural communication.

Studies show Bacopa can boost serotonergic signaling, with results showing normalized receptor kinetics under the influence of 150mg Bacopa Monnieri.

  • Studies show Bacopa can "upregulate expression of a certain type of presynaptic glutamate receptor, mGluR 8, which are thought to protect neurons from excitotoxicity, and their downregulation is concurrent with hyperexcitation.

I will post again after a few weeks with results.

Nice post, I'll investigate this myself (looking to taper off of my Clonazepam at some point).

You seem to really know your shit, I was wondering what you think of NAC? From my reading on NAC I wonder if it has potential.
