Recently I started contemplating if autophagy might be particulary good for sz, or maybe it also can be bad?
For those who don’t know autophagy is shortly told a metabolic process where cells in the body eat and/or recycle damadged and dead cells. Possibly some healthy cells are eaten as well.
It is induced by excersise, especially any cardio excersises like running or cycling.
Also certain foods promote autophagy. Some are: All caffeinated beverages, ginger, turmeric, healthy oils like: coconut, olive and fish oil.
I started enjoying caffeine again and I noticed that my thoughts got much more clear. Could it be that it is particulary healthy for people who take antipsychotics to induce autophagy because we take drugs that are targeting and upsetting the equilibrium and health of cells in our brains?
On the other hand I have experienced that cardio excersise and coffeine has tilted me into relapse.
Maybe autophagy is good as long as it is in moderation.
