Let me get this stratight. There are six, and only six, ways to regulate the serotonin levels, to wit...
1. Raw material (e.g. 5htp and bananas)
2. Manufacturing & Inventory.
3. Release into blood stream. (e.g. transmission)
4. Absorbtion by receptors (e.g. LSD and psiliocybin).
5. Return to inventory (aka reuptake) (ergo. SSRI's)
6. Disposal (waste).
Each of these can be manipulated by different well-known drugs and specific diets. Some combinations of serotonin-affecting drugs are dangerous, e.g. SSRI's and MAO's. It should be a simple matter to devise a simple test to determine which aspect of the serotonin life-cycle is out of adjustment and then target that component, but alas if there is such a test I don't know why I have never heard of it.
While we're talking about bananas,....What is a bananana? A fruit with too many features! Sorry, couldn't resist.
While we're talking about lsd, I would like to make the comment that based on recent experience, I much prefer the lsd experience to the mushroom experience. Mushrooms seem too unpredictable, hard to harvest and prepare, taste like shit, and doses are hard to adjust. The lsd, at least in the liquid form, is about as simple as it gets.
Wise man said, "Time flies like an arrow; fruit flies like a banana." PFD&N to all.
