It means what it means. Without empirical data there really is no debate. People say homeopathy and dowsing works but where is the evidence?
I look at as many sides as I can. You are fudging the issue by going of on a tangent. Stick to the issue at hand.
If tyrosine was an effective treatment for SA there would be more than just a couple of posts in favour of it. I would question everything about the cases where it "appears" to work. First of all what is the extent of these individuals' SA? How is it effecting there lives? How long have they suffered from SA. What kind of symptoms do they experience and how often? Is it possible that they suffer from schizotypal personality disorder(very important that one)? How long have they been using tyrosine and what improvements have they noted? How great a reduction in symptoms have they experienced? What kinds of things can they do now that they couldn't before? How reliable are the effects(there's no point in sayng that it worked last tuesday but things haven't quite been as good since)?
There are so many factors to take into account and no empirical data whatsoever. I am not mearly skeptical of this I am, frankly, annoyed by the existence of this thread. It is right up there with the "Stop masturbating" and the "you just need to accept it" threads...
You must really piss people off for being so narrow-minded. I dont mean to judge, but maybe your only like this on the internet. My biggest problem is you trying to say "It doesnt work, close this thread down, its bull****". Get out of this thread then. And i knew you bashed the masturbation thread also. Wow. Did it tick an emotional response from you or what?
Look man, no one is forcing you to give your opinion on these threads. So if you got nothing to add, best stay out of it. Besides, the masturbation thread has helped some (even 1 person helped would be a positive outcome). Theres alot of negativity and pessimism on this forum, and your in that group of people Ive noticed.
Yes, I know everyone has a different degree and cause of their anxiety. Its pretty obvious. So right there you are contradicting yourself. Everyone has different degree and cause of SA, therefore everyone will be helped by different means. <---I'd be surprised if you tried to turn that around.
P.S. Are you cured of SA?
