I've read that methionine can reduce histamine levels. If it has a positive effect on my symptoms it will tell me that high histamine might be my problem.

Histamine is a  part of the problem,  I was on  liver detox for half a year.  It is  not  the actual problem,  cause.  And  500 mg of methionine wont do anything at all...You might  get worse even.  to detox liver you need,  inositol  choline and  methionine. 500 mg  3 times a day ,  mostly to help you  with copper.  Send me your tests, I will definetely  help you,  trusts me  the stimulators you are taking   will make you bad,   your adrenal will burn out.  I know exactly how  it works.  I  will help you  100%

i took a histamine level test last week. i dont have the results yet, and also i dont know if it will show anything. i wasnt sick enough to do the test, and i dont know if the histamine in the blood is what counts, or the cells, or the brain. maybe someone else will have some luck with a histamine level test. i think it would be good to take it when you are most symptomatic. but i am guessing here.

Histamine  is in the end  of events  which  happen in this cycle. It should not be looked  at.  It is the outcome of the  faulty   mechanism.  Inhibiting  histamine levels  will fail, until  you  get the proper inflammation response regulated.  To  downregulate  the  inflammation response  your  brain need to  reset....Do you know  how fast your brain  adjusts TSH for the  thyroid,  3 months even if you  change the hormones in blood. And in this  case you need to regulate 3 systems  at once.   The failure to cure POIS  even with  correct regimen is due  to  vicious cycle, where  3 months starts over and over.

Gbolduev, I'm curious what you think the reason is for fenugreek+green/black tea being able to reduce all of my symptoms to a moderate degree. The combo has been reliably helping both my cognitive and physical symptoms for over a year now. Tea by itself does nothing for me, but it potentiates fenugreek by about 3x.

My list of POIS symptoms: burning eyes, back pain, extreme physical & mental exhaustion, joint pain, weaker skin(cut/bleed easier shaving), dry skin, bloating, fat/puffy face (feels like my face is falling off my skull sometimes and as if there's a film of plastic between my flesh and bone), itchy anus, pain during urination and bowel movements, general and social anxiety, weak blood circulation (limbs get cold fast and fall asleep easily), increased sensitivity to any pain or irritation including noise & temperature, decreased memory, decreased thought speed, and decreased ability to hold multiple thoughts in my mind simultaneously, thinning hair, premature ejaculation, unstable emotions, feels like not enough blood is getting to my head.

My orgasm frequency is once per day using maximum willpower. Symptoms set in immediately after ejaculation.

So why do you think fenugreek helps my POIS?

Fenugreek seeds have been found to contain protein, vitamin C, niacin, potassium, and diosgenin (which is a compound that has properties similar to estrogen). Other active constituents in fenugreek are alkaloids, lysine and L-tryptophan, as well as steroidal saponins (diosgenin, yamogenin, tigogenin, and neotigogenin).

Fenugreek  inhibits prostaglandin D2 , also increases copper since it has estrogenic properties.  It slows you down. That is why you feel better. 
VincentM,  why are you keeping  up with one orgasm  a day , if you are having problems with  the inflammation response.   You need to  do these tests get them back to me, and I will fix you up within 3 months.  All these separate remedies wont help you . PLus you have to obstain from sex for 3 months, that is how long it will take for your brain to reset 3 gland sysmems.

Sorry  I did not answer earlier,  I am in Cyprus , we have 8 hour difference.


Thanks, I hope this helps you .

VIncent M,  overactive  imflammation response and  incorrect work of your glands create problems  in your body ,   high  histamine, inflammed blood vessels, prostate , semen pathways. Also your  calcium  metabolism is impaired,  which  effects   the contractions of  blood vessels.   That is why you feel like blood does not go  into your brain.  Also  this could block  adrogenic hormones from your testicles. And thus you will have lower  testosterone levels.    You can fix this  within 3 months.   You have to  go on the regimen  and at the same time do some exercises  to get the  nutrients to your  pelvic  area,   there is  a blockage there.   
Contact me, and I will help you .  gbolduev@mail.ru
I cant ask you questions here,  they could be too much.

I agree that histamine is only part of the problem in that I believe POIS sufferers have an illness that is systemic and exists whether they have an orgasm or not BUT lots of people are sick and fatigued. Many people are not at their optimum health and the POIS sufferer is inclined to believe their biggest problems exist around an O.

So you've said a lot of things in a definitive manner which we're supposed to take on faith...
1) Histamine should not be looked at.
It's too early to say this. Are you saying that urticaria is caused by copper toxicity? There is evidence that faulty methylation will produce low BH4 which may increase mast cell instability. Whether this produces high histamine levels all the time or just makes the effects of an O worse I have no idea. There's more than histamine released when a mast cell degranulates. 

2) Copper is the primary reason for our adrenal fatigue.
Again, this lays the blame at copper toxicity but histamine will also increase cortisol output.  Are you saying we have one of ?
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3290776/
I'm not saying copper toxicity is not a real phenomenon but, like candida, it's often used as a catch all for mysterious illnesses. There are many of the latter and medical science often dismisses them straight off by saying it's "all in the sufferer's head". I had some tests to determine if I had Wilson's and my MD says I don't. Many of the symptoms fit so I think it's possible that POIS sufferers definitely have elevated copper levels some time.

3) We need to detoxify our livers.
Why? What makes you think our livers are toxic?
I find it more plausible that my liver can't make adequate methionine or SAMe because of methylation mutations.
Our gut is every bit as likely to be "toxic" due to bacterial buildup.

4) the stimulators you are taking   will make you bad,   your adrenal will burn out.
What stimualtors? What are people taking to make their adrenals burn out?

5) Methionine may make someone worse. 
Without understanding whether someone has a methylation impairment, I don't see your justification for saying this.
Effectively, the b vitamin I'm taking contains inositol but I don't believe anyone needs extra methionine IF they can correct their methylation such that the body can recycle its methionine from homocysteine.
So far, I've seen 3 genetic tests of POIS sufferers and each one has many methylation problems.

I don't agree with everything Yasko says but I think this is a good summary of some published papers that show the connection between methylation outputs (i.e. methionine and methylated b vitamins) and precursors such as homocysteine with metal buildup & gut problems.
For example, there's a set of mutations that I have that decrease both methionine and decrease glutamine synthase, increase glutamate and increase calcium channel damage to neurons and/or vaso-constriction due to excessive glutamate. This is why I believe flunarazine is working for some people.
Racetams also appear to modulate glutamate receptor activity and may help with this calcium channel malfunction.

I'm not disagreeing with what you're suggesting, mostly. POIS seems to be a systemic problem. Too many sufferers say stuff like "I had bad POIS for a week after an O". This just doesn't make any sense in the context of an illness that only occurs after an orgasm.

What I do object to is that while we haven't banned discussion of POIS theories like the poiscenter forum (an odd decision tbh), we are still part of the Naked Scientists Forum and as such have forum rules which mean that
1) we are supposed to try and justify all statements that we make with a scientific explanation.
2) we are supposed to be very cautious in what we say, particularly about cures and offering to treat people.
There have been complaints made by NSF to our moderators in the past about this.

One of the reasons people left NSF for poiscenter was that it seemed a cure was being announced far too frequently here & as a single stream of posts it's not easy for people to pick & choose what they read. I'm not even sure we're all suffering from the same illness so we need to be cautious. That doesn't mean people should be banned for making suggestions, sharing ideas and arguing their corner. If we do that, there will be nowhere for POIS sufferers to go.

However, we can only go on our own personal experiences. Mine are that I tried a lot of things. The first thing that worked featured zinc and methionine. I read a lot about copper toxicity. I then realised that about 1g of methionine a day with b vitamins was providing a big benefit but that something about the b vitamins wasn't correct. I added ginkgo which contains quercetin and this made things even better. I then became interested in the idea of methylation and mast cell diseases. Got genetic testing and realised I had a whole bunch of methylation related problems and that others in my family had them too. I decided to correct these with some supplements based on information gleaned from reading papers about BH4, MTHFR etc. I now feel a lot better. POIS cognitive problems are mostly gone and I feel physically stronger. Initially methyl-folate and Methycobalamin made be feel worse but after about 1.5 weeks things really improved. I've been taking the same supplements for about a month now & so has my brother who it turns out has some of the symptoms of POIS. This was news to me but it came about when we discussed the genetic test.

I'm not trying to upset you but I believe that the reason supplemental methionine works for some pois sufferers is that they simply cannot recycle enough of their own as they cannot methylate homocysteine. In the long run, the fix for this is to kick start their methylation cycles rather than to add external methionine. On the other hand they may like me have one or more CBS up regulation which increase ammonia levels. This may be what leads to copper imbalance but it may also lead us to accumulate stuff like aluminium. (See Yasko's presentation) The same goes for B_Daniel who found similar methylation mutations, in particular a double MTRR mutation.

From your last post, we are effectively talking about the same things. Histamine, glutamate and calcium levels affecting blood vessel contraction/dilation during POIS but coming from a different starting place.

I checked my 23andme results and I'm minus (not mutated) for ATP7B which is associated with Wilson's disease.   http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/7626145?dopt=Abstract

However, there are other mutations associated with Wilson's and copper accumulation so all this suggests is that I don't have Wilson's per se.

Kurtosis,   thanks for your reply.   I dont know where you see any dIifference  in what I was saying comparing to yours.
When I came to the forum, I said  that  this is а copper problem.  And notice  that I am not giving out any cure. I am asking people to give me tests, so I can create a program  for them.  There could be 4 problems.  methylation is one of them  and it is in the middle of the cycle.  I was taking  niacin , inositol , methionine and   choline   for my liver while I was  reseting the glands and fixing  calcium  metabolism.   This is a part of my regimen  for my case/ 1 out of 4. Obviously  you  were  doing  simular things with quecetin(  phytoestrogen , copper related) .  methionine.    But for some people it would be bad, since  their imbalance is different from yours.  The results could be the same, but the trigger is different. 
I am glad you found what works for you.  I see you  are quite aware.
I  am not trying to research anymore,  I  fixed 3 out of 4  possible  cases of POIS    , I am yet to  see the 4th type.

Best Regards, Herman

Kurtosis,

I dont look at this problem as copper or histamine or any other metabolic byproduct problem / I look at it as a machine.   The main problem  is in connection of one gland to another.  Cellular energy  and  all other processes are effected by this.    But   you  are trying to concentrate   on not the initial problem  but the second third  cycle.  You fix the initial  problem  everything  will come to place.  Copper aliminum  cadmium , anything ,  lead will chelate  automatically, when your cell metabolism  goes into optimum.  You are trying to do the same thing  as  me, but from the middle of the cycle.   This is much harder .

Good luck , Herman.

OK Herman, I guess that I'm trying to understand is what you believe is the meta-problem to methylation?
Mitochondrial energy production?
The only difference I'm suggesting is that I believe there is a class of POIS sufferer that I believe has developed POIS and other diseases similar to chronic fatigue because they have a methylation problem and this affects everything. We're both suggesting it's a systemic disease but the melange of symptoms people are presenting with are different or emphasised differently so there may be different kinds of POIS.

For instance, my eyesight is improving now. It's amazing but it's happening. I always wondered whether there was a connection between my eye muscle problems and POIS and that seems to be the case. As daniel pointed out, there are lots of things that can cause eye movement problems including calcium channel dysregulation, high levels of histamine and glutamine (which when combined with calcium channel dysregulation can cause seizures and tremors it seems.

I'm just interested in an exchange of ideas & as I said, this forum is very open to that...

Kurtosis, that is why I  dont  post  articles or studies.   Each  case is different, why would I post some broad information.     When the person gives me tests,  I come back with the program  and  provide all the  chain of thought and studies to support it.   And actually you guys  who are trying all these  regimens and  channel blockers,  and fenugreeks can be quite dangerous to some people, since  they can  read your post and  try this   having  different body chemistry.  Systematic problem is solved  individually,  after said that  the meaning of this forum disappears, unless you  collect a database of blood work or other tests


Good luck and thanks , Herman

Kurtosis,
 in my first posts on this forum, I posted  the cases  of POIS.   1)low thyroid, low adrenal, burnt out, low cortisol, 2)  high thyroid, high adrenal,  really low copper, infections, acute stress.   3)   high thyroid,  low adrenal  -beginning of stress,   still high cortisol. 4) Low thyroid, stressed  adrenal high to normal.

So yes,  what you describe  is one of  the cases.  Methylation is the problem   and I dont deny it.    HIgh and low I mean in  relation to each other and on cellular level.   Most people are in  number 3 /  but their  thryoid hormons are  normal, they dont know their problem which is there.

Kurtosis,   

The copper-containing enzymes, histaminase and ceruloplasmin, regulate histamine. Elevated copper increases the levels of these enzymes, promoting histamine breakdown. The low histamine levels, allow copper to continue to rise. Histamine is an essential protein metabolite (a product of metabolism) found in all body tissues. In the brain, it acts as a neurotransmitter. Low histamine is a marker for high copper.

Histamine levels are also related to the methylation cycle, a metabolic pathway that is essential for detoxification and for controlling free radical activity. Methyl and histamine compete with each other.

When histamine is high, it is a sign of under-methylation, and when histamine is low, there is over-methylation. With too much methyl, the body will overproduce dopamine, norepinephine and serotonin (the activating neurotransmitters), with too little methyl, the neurotransmitter levels are too low.

so  nutritional imbalances and  stress  are the reasons  for  methylation problems.  That is why  I try to control  the stress of the glands  and  then feed the nutrients.  If you dont  do that, your metabolism  will run away even if you  fix methylation  per say.  Stress theory  comes first in my book and then  nutrients  and then by products/.  the person is stressed  and have imbalance in  glands collaboration,  then  how can you fix the 3d cycle.  It wont help/   For glands to switch off stress, it takes 3 months  since  brain will  adjust in this time only.

Herman

So now, look at  the tests  I  asked people  to send me  and it will show you , that I am basically  able to see  from those  most of the functon  of   their glands and metabolism up to  the 4th cycle,  including methylation histamine  and even prostaglandins . 

I hope this  helps.

That is why I say 2 types of POIS  and 4 types of problems of the body...balance prone to infection (low histamine) balance prone to iflammation ( high histamine). That is why I said that for some people  methionine could be worse.

nocturnal  emissions are fine.  I suggest to do  kegels exercise 500 in the morning and 500 at night.  That would help it  while you are on  your supplements.

So very important,  when  someone is feeding  the body nutrients but without a break on  nervous system and glands,  you  go from  case  number 3 , to case number 1, which is burn out...( taking  energy booster does that, stimulators,  ging seng, tribulus, testosterone  boosters.)....and    then some people  are complaining that  nutrients wont help them.  Since   in case number 1...you cant  use  B complex vitamins   high  vitamin C and  stuff like that, since you are done....you need to put your glands to sleep   so they dont react to   stress  and then you  can feed  the body nutrients.  Otherwise  nothing will work.

Well Gbolduev's protocol is completely useless to me anyway since it requires abstaining from sexual activity for 3 months which is impossible for me. I know there are others in the same position so for our type we have things like fenugreek and niacin which can make our lives a bit easier.

For me it's not about curing myself. It's about survival. If I don't find a way to relieve my symptoms then I can't get a job and I'll go homeless and die on the streets. I'll try every herb in existence if that's what it takes. Medical knowledge on this subject simply doesn't exist to the level we need it and so we are left with little else but trial and error.
