Hi Mike,

That joke was told to me by my boss when I joined as an apprentice Tool and Die Maker.
Explaining doing Why-Why analysis of problems to get root cause of problem and finding solutions.
The expert doctors stopped at first why, and got a working but costly and depressing solution.

The joke is still funny.

Not if you happen to be Jake. Sad

So the joke has serious implications Idea and a prevalence beyond my ethnic group (hence, my attempted use of dialect). I had assumed it was just a cautionary tale reminding me that even if my uncle was a physician to get a second opinion. Or, stated more generally --and as an attorney occasionally brought in on malpractice cases know from experience-- an expert, regardless of his/her field and credentials, can be just as much as screw-up as anyone else.

I was, however, serious about recommending 5HTP. "Big Pharma" can't make money from it, as it's a naturally occuring substance. Consequently, physicians generally don't learn about it and include it in their "tool kit". I don't know the exact chemistry, but it's an intermediary stage in the production of serotonin, a chemical required by synapses in the brain in the transmission of electrical impulses. Lack of sufficient serotonin manifests itself as head-aches and, in severe cases, clinical depression. I've been taking 50 mg per day --100 mg once a month, or on 'really bad days'-- for 20 years, apparently, without adverse effects. [But then, how would I know?].
