Scientists find childbirth wonder drug that can 'cure' shyness
It can turn anything from job interviews to the most routine of family gatherings into a sweat-inducing ordeal.

But a 'love drug' produced naturally by the body during sex and childbirth could offer hope to the millions of people blighted by shyness, scientists have said.

Investigators believe oxytocin - a natural hormone that assists childbirth and helps mothers bond with newborn babies - could become a wonder drug for overcoming shyness.

Trials have found that oxytocin can reduce anxiety and ease phobias. Researchers say the hormone offers a possible, safe, alternative to alcohol as a means of overcoming the problem.

Sixty per cent of Britons say they have suffered from shyness and one in 10 say it impedes their daily life.

Researchers in the US, Europe and Australia are now racing to devebunnymercial forms of the hormone, including a nasal spray.

They believe it could also be turned into a 'wonder drug' to treat a range of personality disorders such as autism, depression and anxiety.

Paul Zak, a professor of neuroscience at California’s Claremont Graduate University said: 'Tests have shown that oxytocin reduces anxiety levels in users. It is a hormone that facilitates social contact between people.

What’s more, it is a very safe product that does not have any side effects and is not addictive.'

Professor Zak has tested the hormone on hundreds of patients. Its main effect is to curb the instincts of wariness and suspicion that cause anxiety.

Produced naturally in the brain during social interactions, it promotes romantic feelings, helps mothers bond with babies and makes people more sociable.

i was reading this yesterday and found it very interesting

so many teenagers turn to drugs and alcohol to overcome being shy, they love the feeling of being free for the first time, if they had tried this first, it may have a big impact on drugs/alcoholism in the long run

I think there is a cologne you can buy that has it in it. I've heard of sales people wearing it to induce trust in prospective buyers.

Boston Legal - even did a show about this.

Re: Scientists find childbirth wonder drug that can 'cure' shyness
So we live in cultures which create conditions in which we do not naturally generate normal levels of oxytocin through warm and trusting relationships,
so instead we will spend big bucks on pharmaceutical substitutes instead . . .

that sounds about par for the course . . .

Re: Scientists find childbirth wonder drug that can 'cure' shyness
just fyi

when I was in labor with my daughter it wasn't progressing "quickly" enough so they hooked me up to a pitocin drip.

Let me tell you, there was nothing wonderful or soothing about it.

It causes extremely intense muscle contractions.

Painful enough that I went into shock and had to be put on oxygen.

Fuck taking it over the counter.

 Quoting: malu


I, like many, started drinking to "cure" shyness. Of course it doen't work in the long run. This sounds promising.

I would think big pharma would rather have people on their artificial patent anti-depressant/anxiety drugs, than on a natural hormone like this. They'll probably find a way to make it illegal.

Re: Scientists find childbirth wonder drug that can 'cure' shyness
Speaking as a Introvert (No not shy, there is a BIG difference between the two).

Introversion is a matter of HARDWIRING. There have been numerous of studies that show that Introverts brain and extroverts brain operate on differnt channels. and different area's of the brain.

I'm a introvert not because of phobias or fears or panic attacks over extroverts. I'm a interovert because God made me so from the womb.. An franking I'm very very HAPPY the way of I am.

Introverts are heavy thinkers deep thinkers. Its why we're introverted. Our brains go into overdrive trying to solve complex ideas, trains of thought, problems. Instead of wasting all that power on useless endless dribble and chatter you extroverts engage in our brain shifts that energy over to deep thought and problem solving.

There are numerous of studies out there on google about this..

Introversion isn't a 'Condition' to be cured. Its biological fact.

As for introverts being too afraid to have a social life? LOL

I have at the moment 7 adult women want a deeply committed relationship with me. An their going to great 'naughty' lengths to suck me into one. :) My major problem at this point is trying stay ahead of them and keep my independence.

It's certainly possible to be both introverted and shy. I'm both. You can't really generalize. Everybody is unique.

I believe shyness is a learned condition caused by over-sensitivity combined with typical unpleasant life experiences. The over-sensitivity amplifies the negative emotions which leads to avoidance coping behaviors.

That sounds about right. I also believe that autism is linked to mercury sensitivity or the inability to process mercury. Most of my negative symptoms started happening after I received a number of mercury amalgams as a child. The mercury in the childhood vaccines probably caused some of the damage.

I'm that way and I hate it. I've tried damn near everything to change that. I don't have the pheromone thing that attracts women, and it takes an act of God to actually have one of then want to sleep with me. I'd be happy to be with the same one every night for the rest of my life, but that ain't happening. Let the pheromones fly - any drug is a good drug if it can change this situation.
