Good find. I’ve been able to manage symptoms with supplements but I haven’t reversed anything. I hypothesized that black seed oil would help kill off infection and make me more sociable but that didn’t happen.

Any way I believe that neutrophil cell generated reactive oxygen species are the suspected culprit behind non autoimmune induced schizophrenia.

Interesting theory, are there any papers on this idea?
