Kurtosis' methylation helping some hurting others
Who did it hurt?


Well if you're an over-methylator and take sam-e, that'll make you worse, no? perhaps hurt was a poor choice of words, but didnt Jon try it and have to quickly stop

Hey it helped me, thats for sure. Just trying to make the point that we're not all the same

Not 100% sure about Jon. The methylation idea involves doing some genetic tests, seeing what mutations turn up, and adding / subtracting some supplements based on that. Taking SAMe is just one way of knowing if someone doesn't have enough SAMe.

Dear friend  and Nathan/

Testosterone shots are worthless/    Estrogen  dominance  is  copper imbalance/   Copper  equals  estrogen.  Zinc  equals  progesterone/     I keep telling you this  all for months now.  But you dont get it..  All this methylation   gene expresions,  HPAT axis  all  depend on  copper zinc thing/    Most of you  if not all of you  have pyroluria .  It is a  fact/  And  pyroluria is not cured only by zinc B6,  it depends which  side you are ,   either dopamine dominant or  serotonin  dominant/ 
 
Nathan in your case your thyroid  looks shut down as I told you before.   what will testosterone do  to you ?   decrease your  LH even furthur/    You are crazy if you do those shots/

Nathan  ,  you will  take testosterone and  most of it will convert back to DHT and estrogen /     fix your  copper imbalance  my friend  and you wont be estrogen  dominant/   Also   adrenals glands  when they are tired they use  progesterone to form cortisol,   when that happens  your body uses a lot of zinc  to do that and also  progesterone levels decrease,   this was   you become  estrogen dominant/    What does  testosterone has to do with it?    Shots will help you  for a little while and  then you will be even more estrogen  dominant.    DONT DO THIS/ 

You have to block  SBHG -  DHT -Estrogen bindings    with zinc  and  support your adrenals  by taking the stress off of them( with Calcium and Magnesium)  ,  and your estrogen dominance will  evaporate in  weeks/

Unreal how people just go for hormones,  Your LH and FSH levels are non existant now as it is, since your  hypotalamus  adrenal testicles axis is  totally blocked now.   Taking  testostrone  will  lower it even more.

Herman, by what mechanism does copper increase estrogen?
Taking fenugreek+tea/garlic, saw palmetto, huperzine, niacin, boswellia, and nutmeg.

Hi Herman, pl specify correclty which medicine at what does required to take to fix this problem.  Further whether you required copper blood and zinc blood test.

Hi,  friends,  as Herman suggested, today I undertook measurement of zinc and copper in the serum.  Interestingly my zinc level in serum is normal i.e. 110 whereas the normal range is 60 to 120.   Further, I am not copper toxic or deficient, my copper serum level is normal, it is 96 whereas the normal range is 80 to 140.  So, it is clear that I am not having imbalance in metabolism rather the problem is hormonal imbalance i.e. high estrogen.  It seems there are different varities of POIS exists like hormonal imbalance, metal imbalance as per herman and many more. 

I consulted the doctor to increase TRT and decrease estrogen.  But here the risk factor is there is chance of loss of sperm count.  Hence, I decided to not to take the risk, rather I will try natural food to increase Testerstone and decrease Estrogen.  Hoping for success in this time. 

with regards,

nathan.

this is the health test: it is basically a genetic test. Just add it to cart, to buy it. They will ask you to created a profile.

Who cares about  zinc and copper in serum.  Those tests are crap.  Estrogen dominance is copper toxicity  inside of the cell, brain and liver.  I would never suggest you to test serum copper or zinc,   those are completely inaccurate/
When estrogen is high  copper is high  and vice versa,   pregant women retain copper  as their estrogen skyrockets,  that is done against  infections. 
What hormones?  hormones are  secondary to minerals/   YOu have   shut down  thyroid , take what I told you to take, and you will be cured.    Naturally raise testosterone?       that is the funniest thing  I have ever  heard.    You will increase LH or   you will   unbind  estrogen from  SBHG  ,   both are done with zinc.    ZINC increases progesterone,  and   take estrogen down, since  it chelates copper

He has also done the test you asked for and you still havn't given him a proper regimen. If you can't help him what is your goal asking others to the same test.
we are not your test samples for your theories that you don't give any scientific papers to support or tell us the source of your theories.

This are the test you asked for.
electrolytes
2) Thyroid, TSH  T3 T4
3) ionized calcium and magnesium
4) Ferritin
5) Iron
6) Ceruplasmin

Nathan was given his regimen. You would know that if you carefully read  my previous posts. 
I am not here to prove anything to anyone. Plus  I  am not taking  any more people/ I dont do this for living and I have an agreement with some people on this forum. B_Daniel  specifically  that after he is cured  ,  he would  help and direct others/   
So the proof of  this theory will come as a cure not as some bs studies. 

Every single doctor  knows that  estrogen dominance  and copper imbalance  are  like twins.  it is like proving that  2 plus 2 is 4.

Hi, I want to clear to this forum that, German has not insisted me to undergo copper and zinc serum test.  He just seen my estrogen report and other test such as electrolytes, iron, ceruplasmin and suggested me to take some vitamins to overcome POIS.  I on my own behalf has undergone copper and zinc test, to test.  That's all. 

I will follow what german suggested and let's see the result.  Thank you for the help german.  Another interesting thing is I am vitamin D deficient, and I am thinking whether it is the cause for low testerstone.

Quote
This study also indicates that resistance to metal toxicity in copper-resistant hepatoma cells is due to increases in both cellular GSH and MT. Furthermore, it is suggested that elevated levels of GSH peroxidase allows cells to more efficiently accommodate an increased cellular hydrogen peroxide flux that may occur as a consequence of elevated levels of cytoplasmic copper

What I wish I'd done a few years ago is listen to a friend who suggested that my symptoms suggested sleep apnea.  I thought that was very unlikely as I don't snore much, am thin, young etc.  It turns out that the myth about sleep apnea being mainly for fat old men has long been disproven, with all ages from young children upwards being diagnosed with Obstructive Sleep Apnea  or Upper Airway Resistance Syndrome: both sleep breathing disorders.

I've done a sleep study last year: despite pretty severe POIS symptoms, no sleep apnea was found. oxygen levels were good throughout the night

if you have problems with CAPS, you could try nasal strips, if the obstruction comes from mucus in your nose.
http://www.amazon.com/Breathe-Right-Advanced-Nasal-Strips/dp/B005VLURWO [nofollow]

This double strip type works particularly well to keep my nasal passage clear than the old  single-strip type.
you may want to use rubbing alcohol to clean the skin oil on your nose before applying the strip at night.

DHT can be easily blocked by low dose of finasteride (1mg/day)
and excessive Estrogen can be quickly (in days) corrected by Clomid without the side effect of T replacement therapy.

Both are prescription drugs, and you need to consult your physician.

Good to hear. I take about 2000IU / day also. Between work commitments keeping me indoors and the climate where I live, it would be difficult to get enough vitamin D. Oral Vitamin D3 isn't an expensive supplement :)

uptake http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Calcitriol_receptor
But if you had a very serious mutation preventing uptake (as in vitamin D resistant rickets), you'd know about it. It's not something that wouldn't be diagnosed, as there are obvious physical characteristics and symptoms.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rickets
Perhaps it's a mild uptake inhibition and merely requires greater vitamin D supplementation.

You have to be kidding me with Finasteride.   Effectively  blocked?   Finasteride is  POISON.   I have  people  who are trying to overcome the effects of that crap for years.  Stay away from that stuff/    Some  reports POIS symptoms from using  finasteride.

Hi important, from the past one week, I have taken Vitamin B6 tablets daily 40 mg.  Yesterday, I feel some imbalance in legs, and I undergone Vit B6 test and shocking to know that my Vit B6 level has excess.  Doctors warned me to not to take these without proving having pyoulria disease.  Hence, I request each and every one of you not to take this without doctors supervision.  Don't make harm to your body.  Now I am ok after decreasing Vit B6 level.

Another thing is I tested for my copper blood test and as per this my copper level is normal.  Is there any chance of copper toxicity in liver / brain even though serum is normal.  pl help. 

Further, another good news, I am finding new way to reduce / completely eliminate the POIS symptoms after ejaculation.  Presently it is reducing POIS symtoms but not preventing POIS.  I will post this after trying and confirming further one week.

Nathan, 

You are one funny dude,    you are taking  B6  and you expect your blood levels  to be normal?  Stop testing your serum , it is not accurate and  not relevant.
Take what I told you to take. And yes you will feel bad on it for a while.

Yes, Herman, I am taking what you have suggested.  But I am under the supervision of the doctor, I just informed all the forum members to try any medication under the supervision of their doctors, so that there will be a confidence in all.   I convinced my doctor and he agreed for your theory and he is supervising to see my Vit B6 serum level not go to the peak.  that's all.  As I started your program, I will update the results at regular intervals. 

I have one question, whether zinc is a water soluble or Fat soluble.  Further, to convince my doctor, I want to know how to prove I am suffering from Copper deficiency, which test I need to undergo for this other than serum.  Pl explain.

Once more thanks

Hi Herman, Hi Everybody,

I totally agree with you Herman when you say POIS is systemic problem ; it is chain reaction, all we have been doing is treating parts of the chain, never the the root cause and it's right, the reliefs we have had was mostly temporary or partial

Mineral/alimentation/environment seem to me to be a really good culprit for being a root cause

I understand very well what you said about we are all different and each persons depending of its own biochemestry need to be adressed with different cures ; That makes senses

But in my opinion we should have (maybe 75-80% of us)the same problem ; POIS has pretty specific symtoms : triggered or gotten worsed by orgasm, reversible symtoms over a 3 to 7 days period, difficulty thinking and speacking, social withdrawal) ; we are not in a some forum talking about vague diseases related to mineral unbalance ;

I believe its possible to different(even opposite as you talk about copper deficient/toxic) cause can lead to the same symtoms ; but not 20

So we have the same problem(with individual variation), I guess the solution should be coming from the same direction

Anyway I'm curious and i'm trying right now the B6 for 5 days and add the zinc yesterday.

I'm high in prolactin, use to be low in testo(but apparently not reliable),high in cholesterol, my feritin is just in the middle of the range like cortisol,my copper serum is low(don't know if reliable) Niacin doesn't really work for me, I don't feel alergic when i'm in POIS, NSaids is the only thing that work for me and i'm not positive to skin ***** test.

So Herman what type am I from your typologie ?
Do you think POIS is nothing else than pyroluria ? What the link with Orgasm(does it pump the B6 and Zinc even more ?)

Thanks

I just want to give my Congratulations to all those who have helped with the nord efforts on pois center.   I dont share some people's extreme optimism with regards to this study, but nevertheless i think every one of us supports research and we should be very proud of this pretty major accomplishment together.


Thank you for your support.

Hi all,

I had my testo rechecked : i'm 6,80 ug/l so i'm just in the range for my age - I was 2,66 ug/l 6 month before

What it interesting is the bio available testosterone : i'm 0,90 ng/ml(was 0,57 last test) wich is pretty low by just considering it and very abnormal by comparating it to total testo ; The ratio(bio available/total)seems low.

First time it was a risk of false result, 2nd time I guess there is something real.

So I guess, there is either a problem of over utilisation of testosterone what leave a few free or probleme for release testoterone and make it avalaible for the body

Do you guys have tested your Bio available testoterone checked ? It can be tricky to just test the total testosterone wich in my case this time is normal

LAPOISSE

 Most here have low testosterone levels. Since most  have  copper imbalance and estrogen dominance , which happens during adrenal fatique.  Why?   because copper  irritates adrenals and  they  pump, and pump and pump until they have no nutrients to pump with.   How does it happen?      During stress you lose  magnesium and  zinc,  so it opens up  sodium and  lowers potassium in the cell.   When the losses of  magnesium and zinc  are severe   you get panic attacks.  When you are in stress,   progresterone is used for cortisol, and  thus the balance  between       
progesterone and estrogen  gets impaired.    That is how you get into  estrogen  dominance,   Сopper starts to build  up and  it makes adrenals pump more aldosterone.   
So the cases are all different and  some people  can have  adrenals still pumping , and some can  have them already   burned out.   that is why  everyone needs  different things.      I will answer your questions about your  results over the weekend.  and post them here.

Thank you Herman,

An other thing about my results : my red blood cells are low and my prolactin is high as usual

6 month ago whan I was really low in testosterone, I was also low in estradiol 40,40 pmol/l (99-393)

you said i'm oestrogen dominant ?

The connection between vitamin D deficiency and VDR mutation.
http://blogs.scientificamerican.com/observations/2010/06/10/vitamin-d-deficiency-linked-to-genetic-polymorphisms/ [nofollow]

This 2010 Lancet study seems to focus on DHCR7/NADSYN1, CYP2R1 and GC genes. I think these genes control transport and biosynthesis of 1,25(OH)_2D, while VDR is downstream. See this link on 1,25(OH)_2D biosynthesis:
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2675652/figure/fig1/ [nofollow]

According to this site: http://www.heartfixer.com/AMRI-Nutrigenomics.htm#VDR [nofollow] Taq:  Vitamin D Receptor Taq Abnormality
VDR Taq + together with COMT(-/-) causes low dopamine in general, and needs methyl donors..

I recently read some articles questioning some of Dr.Amy's claims:
http://web.mit.edu/london/www/cbs.html [nofollow]
that suggests
Urinary ammonia test is unreliable
Urinary taurine test is unreliable
glutathione deficiency may be caused by SOD1/2/3 mutation.

Kurtosis, have you done any blood test on glutathione? I wonder if there is a way to directly measure it. Thanks!

I am rethinking what I have learned so far, A1298C mutation seems quite pronounced. VDR bsm and taq (++) seems to be not very rare in  general population.

Update on my status:

I agreed the Herman Copper toxicity theory and about to start the vitamins and minerals that he is suggested and consulted my doctor.  My doctor also quite impressed by his theory and he suggested me to undergone, Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis.  He told that it is the most accurate test to determine imbalance in minerals in the body tissues.  I ordered this Test and gave my sample hair.  It will take around one month for the report in our area. 

I also advised each and every one to do this analysis before starting any vitamin & mineral supplements.

What do you mean by "pronounced?"
If you're suggesting that more people should display signs of vitamin D deficiency then perhaps they do?
In Ireland where I live it's emerging that many people are vitamin D deficient. Particularly elderly people but they never associated that with bone weakness, fatigue or depression. http://www.ijms.ie/portals/_ijms/documents/op-506.pdf

I tested urinary ammonia and it was elevated. I haven't had glutathione tested. However, some supplementary glutathione appeared to reduce my acne dramatically. I have no idea why. It shouldn't work as there are 2 laboratory experiments showing poor absorption.

I saw B Daniel's glutathione tests and they appeared low but as far as I remember he doesn't have a CBS upregulation mutation. Yes Yasko appears obsessed with CBS but she's obsessed with it because she claims she keeps seeing it in autism patients she's treating. So either she's telling porkies or it's correlated with some other mutation or set of mutations that seems to co-occur with CBS. No idea. While the MIT.edu paper is interesting it doesn't really prove or disprove the validity of Yasko's treatment regime, it just points out that there are contradictions. If this was a maths paper, you could say it's "false" but it's a complicated chemical system with currently unknown variables so the unintended consequences (which may be beneficial) are unknowable.

There seem to be lots of contradictions in Yasko's work anyway. I've posted before about the RNA preparations which must degrade at room temperature and render themselves useless. I never worked my way through her patent on a mechanism to prevent degradation. I know there's quite some scientific skepticism about it
Quote
Yasko, A. Arrow , et al. (1993) Acid Stable End Blocked Nucleic Acids and Therapeutic Uses Thereof. US Patent

However, when a precise mechanism of interaction is unknown all experiments can do is prod around the edges and try to establish what may be happening. i.e. she could be wrong about ammonia but she may be spotting some connection between CBS or a concurrent mutation and acidity, leading to greater ammonia production.

Generally I try to think of pretty simple hypotheses and test them on myself with safe doses of vitamins. When I say safe I mean, well below doses that have been shown to be toxic but perhaps above the RDA.
Vitamin D supplementation appears to work. I took a multivitamin with methylfolate and methylcobalamin instead of the usual folic acid and cyanocobalamin. Added some adenosylcobalamin and vitamin D and life improved. In particular I felt more energy and less aches/pains. These were present most of the time and affected my ability to exercise, run, play sports etc. I didn't associate them with POIS until it seemed that my reaction to orgasm improved with my tolerance for exercise and my general mood.

From reading other posts, these symptoms appear correlated in other POIS sufferers. i.e. this thing just doesn't affect us at orgasm.

Anyway, just some thoughts :)

There are overall moderators of NSF who are keeping an eye on us.
That's all I know.

Romies
You have to be kidding me with Finasteride.   Effectively  blocked?   Finasteride is  POISON.   I have  people  who are trying to overcome the effects of that crap for years.  Stay away from that stuff/    Some  reports POIS symptoms from using  finasteride.

One man's meat is another man's poison.

A lot of people who used Finasteride are for male pattern baldness, and did not get tested for serum DHT level or did not have a particularly elevated DHT level. So for highly elevated serum DHT, finasteride is still an option.

About side effect, thank you for pointing out the large number of webpages about "Post-Finasteride Syndrome". We don't know yet how many percentage of the finasteride user is affected. and there is no PubMed papers on this topic at all. Hopefully there will be double-blind studies on this issue soon.

My apologies for my sleep-deprivation-induced language-difficulty. I meant "produced"

I wanted to suggest that it may be useful to test serum Vd level more often. My own VD testing was done 1 year ago, before I discovered this forum and read your very insightful posts.

One reason for the blood testing is that there are several enzymes (liver and kidney) needed for converting oral Vd to its active form. 23andme has those raw data.

The sun exposure probably is a bigger contributor. So the hypothesis above may not apply to you.

I live in the southern US with ample sunlight year round. So personally I was surprised last year to find out I was Vd deficient.

Plus, we need more VD for our VDR mutations.

I am pretty skeptical about her RNA preparations as well. Not to sound like an narrow-minded referee :), this extracellular RNA is really unstable, in both GI tract and all body fluids, and is often packaged within vesicles. I don't think it is well understood yet, and her claims of using it in clinical setting is quite dubious.

Okay Q&A time here: :)

1. Mind sharing what kind of glutathione supplement do you take now?  GSH or N-acetylcysteine? and what brand? (I have quite a bit of acnes too when I take methyl-folate and methyl-cobalamin)

2. what brand of complex-B do you take now for adenosylcobalamin? I tried thorne extra-nutrients, but unfortunately it seems to have too much niacin and makes me feel far worse.

Thanks!

Anyway I'm curious and i'm trying right now the B6 for 5 days and add the zinc yesterday.

I'm high in prolactin, use to be low in testo(but apparently not reliable),high in cholesterol, my feritin is just in the middle of the range like cortisol,my copper serum is low(don't know if reliable) Niacin doesn't really work for me, I don't feel alergic when i'm in POIS, NSaids is the only thing that work for me and i'm not positive to skin ***** test.

Since you feel allergic and Niacin does not work for you, maybe Kurtosis regimen will work (methyl-guard, VC, ginkgo/blueberry extract)? see this link for details: http://poiscenter.com/forums/index.php?topic=468.0 [nofollow]

You can ask Kurtosis himself. The regimen has been evolving overtime.. my understanding is probably 45-deg out-of-phase with Kurtosis and need to catch up.  :)

N-acetylcysteine (NAC) but it's probably better if I PM you as I think forum rules forbid any discussion that looks like it's promotion of a commercial product.

Thanks Romies but my regimen was based on doing some genetic testing and seeing what vitamins I might need more of. That's about it. I posted a lot about POIS being related to a combination of neurotransmitter levels changing rapidly and over release of histamine (itself a neurotransmitter) following an O. I still think this is probably the case and I think it was interesting that Nathan had such relief from sibelium / flunarizine.

However, I'm not a doctor and I can't treat anyone.

My regimen as such is
- a multivitamin with active b vitamins only. (only the "coenzymes" to bypass potential genetic mutations that could be affecting immune system performance or energy levels). As I explained the multivitamin can contain NAC or I can take extra NAC. NAC is not necessary all the time in my experience but really good if someone is having sleeping or breathing difficulties due to too much mucus.
- A fish oil with extra vitamin D.
- Blueberries and/or pterostilbene for inflammation reduction. I'd previously taken ginkgo but there were some side effects. I liked it thought and it might still be a good idea for some.

From India. May I know the reason for asked.
