Demografx--Thanks for writing that letter. As for the add you want to post in the Journal of Endocrinology, how much would that cost? I would definitely be willing to chip in, if we can all do it together and keep the cost down. How does everyone else feel about the add posting?
What is the Pelvic Floor?The Pelvic Floor is a “hammock” of muscles that supports the internal abdominal and pelvic organs. These muscles run in different directions and are different sizes. The job of these muscles is to support, lift and control the muscles that close the urethra (tubethat urine passes through).
Men who learn to identify,contract, and relax their pelvic floor muscles develop a great deal of awareness of how their body works and increases their self confidence. By being aware of how muscles tend to contract when feeling anxious, one can develop the skill to help reduce anxiety by relaxing the muscles, similar to the way we use breathing techniques to calm ourselves when stressed. Relaxing the pelvic floor muscles may have an effect on the nervous system which can help to control the timing of ejaculation. Strengthening the pelvic floor muscles, in addition to learning to relax them, may help improve blood circulation, nerve and blood vessel supply. This develops tone, strength and endurance, all of which enhance genital sensation and sexual pleasure. It is also possible that strengthening the pelvic floor may allow some men to achieve a form of orgasm without allowing ejaculation, and thereby perhaps reach multiple ‘climaxes’ during sexual activity. This technique has been practiced by the Taoists of ancient China as well as Yogics in India, and continues to be part of the teachings of Tantra.
Quercetin has shown effective in a randomized, placebo-controlled trial in chronic prostatitis using 500 mg twice a day for 4 weeks Subsequent studies showed that quercetin, a mast cell inhibitor, reduces inflammation and oxidative stress in the prostate
Foods rich in quercetin include capers (1800mg/kg), lovage (1700mg/kg), apples (440mg/kg),
Quote from: Guthrie on 10/07/2008 04:22:03Hi sparx, to answer your question: I took Vitex for about 6 months. While I thought it seemed to be having a bit of an effect at first, it ended up being mostly minimal. So, after a number of months of no further improvement, I stopped taking it.hi Guthrie, Sorry to hear Vitex hasn't helped (it looks good on paper but perhaps prolactin has nothing to do with POIS in the end, or Vitex doesn't lower prolactin enough). Would you mind saying how much were you taking and how often? I've been taking it for about 6 weeks and thought it might be having some effect ... could be placebo! Thanks anyway!hi imre1, considering Guthrie's experience with Vitex (and my own which is relatively limited so far) my earlier suggestion to you about Vitex could be completely misleading. I wish you the very best of luck with whatever you decide to try.

I am curious, does anyone else here experience teeth grinding (bruxism)? I do this and wear a night guard for it. I am considering ordering a hypnosis cd to see if it might help.
I have written some letters.
EMAIL LETTER TO SOCIETY FOR ENDOCRINOLOGY JOURNALS we suffer greatly for as much as a week ...It is hoped that a research endocrinologist would step forward and look at our many postings from all over the world and show us a path to a cure. We have already made some promising headway through trial and error.I would think that a study such as this could qualify for a grant.Can you help?
Garlic, like onions, contains compounds that inhibit lipoxygenase and cyclooxygenase, (the enzymes that generate inflammatory prostaglandins and thromboxanes), thus markedly reducing inflammation.

I recently lost 30 pounds from gastro probs, so 'll see what it does.
