Salvia, Dopamine, medicine.
    #3125128 - 09/12/04 05:56 AM (13 years, 7 months ago)

Can anyone tell me if they have read anything about Salvia divinorum causing an increase in dopamine release or dopamine production? Also if possible site your source so I can look it up.

The reason I ask is I have found Salvia divinorum (in myself at least) to be a very potent supressor of a sleep walking disorder I have. I believe what I have is REM sleep behavoir disorder. I suspect that the Salvia is doing this via increasing dopamine levels in my brain, as this disorder is thought to be caused by low dopamine production in the brain.

If Salvia does in fact raise dopamine levels in the brain it might have application in treating a number of other brain disorders, particullary the early stages of neurodegenrative disorder like Parkinson's disease.

PLEASE NOTE all this is highly speculative and nobody should use Salvia divinorum to treat any medical conditions they may have.

Immediately report your testimonial to the owner of that site too.
www.sagewisdom.org is -the- gathering place for all possible information regarding Salvia Divinorum with emphasis on the medical and scientific.

This is solid gold. Salvia only recently got scrutinized like it is today and is sounds that you might have stumbled on a novel indication for possible medical Salvia use.

Not nearly all DA-increasing substances inhibit sleepwalking. It also hints at longer-lasting effects in the brain which corresponds to its positive lingering effect in many users after it has "worn off".

Please submit your case history to Daniel Siebert of said website. He is a scientist who produces research papers and will likely be grateful if one who is versed in brain chemistry drops off a report on a pharmaceutically significant effect.
I'd say do it in a seperate section of your email as a short article so he can swiftly cut & paste it from the personal content.
