WHO has experienced brain itch… ha ha i found a rock band with that name so i guess someone else in the world has experienced it. For me it is like having eaten MSG and then trying to sleep…. my brain just itches.
So I googled it….. not a lot of good scientific stuff out there on the sensation of a crawly itchy brain. Some data below… nothing noteworthy.
“too much pressure” throw this one out
“recovery from drugs” the drug responders disagreed
“brainitch facebook” ha ha, from california, what else
“i guess a brain itch is a song that repeats in your head over and over” i have had this
“itch and pain are entirely separate sensations, transmitted along different pathways” ok with this
“… a type of nerve that was specific for itch. A single itch fibre can pick up sensations over more than three inches away. The fibres have slow conduction speeds….
A distinct area lights up for itch activity in the sensory cortex, and the region that governs your emotional responses, and limbic and motor areas that process serious urges which equates to the really vigorous desire to scratch an itch”
basically I did not find the “itch” i was looking for, but it is a symptom similar to having eaten too many glutamines, or some MSG, and it is just a weird state of feeling
“the jury is still out” on this one and google didn’t find me much of value to explain this sensation
I found a website that had some interesting stuff….one quote that is disturbing just because it shows how “self absorbed” we are with our appearance and skin “Psychosocial distress is a natural, normal response to skin symptoms, especially in our society. Americans spend more on their appearance than on social welfare, health, and education combined”…these facts i did hot fact-check, but sounds very much like american humanity
And the following by Dr. Frank Lipmann —i will underscore completely!!!
What are the biggest problems you see with the way Medicine is practiced today? Here is my list, I am sure there are more:
1. Modern Western Medicine is based on a narrow “scientific” model, and arrogantly ignores and rejects therapies and entire medical systems that don’t fit this model.
2. Doctors are trained in hospitals in “crisis care” medicine, not to take care of the “walking wounded,” which is the majority of people. They need to be trained to take of the “walking wounded” as well.
3. Instead of treating the underlying causes or imbalances, Doctors often merely manage symptoms.
4. Symptoms are seen as something to be suppressed rather than a pointer to some underlying imbalance.
5. Doctors see the human body as a machine with separate parts that can be treated independently rather than as an integrated whole. In addition the mind and body are also seen as separate independent entities and emotions are often ignored.

6. Man is not seen as part of nature, and how what happens in nature effects humans.
7. We look for a magic bullet instead of all the possible factors that make up the total load which are causing the underlying imbalance. There is no understanding of the total load.
8. No belief that the body has a self-healing capacity and no ways to boost that capacity.
9. Everyone with the same disease gets treated the same way, patient uniqueness ignored.
10. We treat the disease, not the patient.
11. There is a reliance on numbers and tests rather than how the patient is feeling and what is found on examination.
12. We don’t take into account the importance of diet and lifestyle on health. How could we? We get a total of 6-8 hours of nutrition lectures in medical school.
13. We don’t recognize or understand the correct use of supplements to optimize health.
14. We don’t recognize the importance of toxicity on our bodies nor know how to boost the body’s own detoxification systems.
15. The Doctor patient relationship is not emphasized and the role of the patient as a partner in their own health care not encouraged.
16. The placebo has a negative connotation and ignored. The placebo is really the body healing itself and should be encouraged.
17. The Drug Industry is too enmeshed in the medical system The Pharmaceutical Industry has WAY TOO MUCH power and is “bribing” Doctors to use their drugs and researchers to produce positive results for their drugs.
18. More than 80 percent of all medical treatments used have been untested by rigorous peer reviewed study, yet the Medical establishment insists that alternative health treatments must undergo these before they can be used. The system of evaluation needs to be changed.
