Folks, I think I found a cure. My symptoms are pretty much gone, after only 3 days. And you don't have to do anything. In fact, that's the whole point:Never eat after 2pm.How does that help? Some hours after a meal, when the food is out of the stomach and out of the small intestine, the body starts a thing called newbielink:http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3400812/ [nonactive]. MMC consists of waves of peristaltic movement throughout the stomach and intestines. It is much more vigorous than the regular peristalsis that moves food. It causes the rumbling sound that the stomach makes when you haven't eaten in a while.During MMC, the stomach and the intestine secrete acid and enzymes (even though there is no food), and the MMC flushes these all throughout the small intestine. The purpose of this is to clean up bacteria and leftover food. In other words, MMC is your body's mechanism for preventing/curing Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO). The MMC happens every 90 to 120 minutes and it only happens in a fasted state. According to some sources, you are considered in a fasted state much later after a meal than you might think. Some sources say 8 to 12 hours after the last meal. In any case, if you have your last meal before 2pm, then, by the time you go to bed, you have a good chance of being in a fasted state. This means that the body can do 4 or 5 cycles of MMC during the night. Otherwise, if you have dinner at 8pm, MMC cannot start until the food has been processed and absorbed. And since digestion is slower during the night, MMC may not even happen at all during the night or maybe happen only once.Wouldn't this type of eating cause hypoglicemia? Not at all, once you enter a fasted state, the liver provides glucose from its glycogen stores. According to some sources, liver glycogen lasts for up to 24 hours. You only need it over night (remember, the fast starts several hours after your last meal, when all the food has been broken down and absorbed).So try having your last meal before 2pm. It will be difficult on the first day (may get headaches and weakness) but it gets better quickly. And then the afternoon/evening become very productive parts of the day. For more info you can check out newbielink:http://www.amazon.com/Daylight-Divine-Eating-Superior-Digestion/dp/0967528658 [nonactive] or newbielink:http://www.amazon.com/Quantum-Eating-Ultimate-Elixir-Youth/dp/0974243450 [nonactive] which both advocate not eating after about 2pm.In terms of what to eat, when you do eat. Try foods that increase your metabolic rate: newbielink:http://raypeat.com/articles/articles/salt.shtml [nonactive], newbielink:http://raypeat.com/articles/articles/sugar-issues.shtml [nonactive] and saturated fats like butter, ghee and newbielink:http://raypeat.com/articles/articles/coconut-oil.shtml [nonactive]. Yes, I know, those are considered the bad guys but they're really not.
First of all my apology to the forum for not posting the 15 minute exercise, I have used. The intention behind this is I thought, whether can I able to add any add-ons to that exercise and I tried many and finally today comes to a conclusion that 15 minute of yoga mentioned in earlier version to be posed and I am posting the. The same is below as follows. a) For the first five minutes – pls do the body lossening exercises i.e. to legs, shoulders, hands, neck, - search in google you find many………b) For next five minutes – Pls do the dynamic warmup exercises. The above two steps are the preppatroy steps for the yoga posute. c) Now pls do the yoga posture Ardha Matsyendrasana (Only Three rounds – Pls not do more than this, as you are not practicing under the trainer). It may take five minutes. Pls do not this exercise in full stomach. Your stomach should be empty. Otherwise there may be some other problems. Suggested timings is morning and in the evening before food. Also, person with knee injury, spinal cord problems should not perform this exercise as it would severe the problem. Compare the POIS at the beginning of this exercise and now. If you find decrease in the POIS symptoms, my POIS is equal to your POIS and God has finally helped us….We won. Update on me:a) In my last post, I mentioned that presently my POIS attached reduced to 30% as I am practicing on hour yoga exercise daily. Now, I find even slight reduction can say 25% attack and this attack is tolerable and this 15 minutes. b) You may know, from last three years, I tried so many experiments and in yoga I tried one. That is to have Sex after that one hour exercise ( I compare taking of Nicain and have sex and accordingly I tried this). So, out of past 15 days, 6 times I had Sex & big O immediately after the one hour yoga exercise and the results are amazing. After big O, now there is no POIS, it is 0%, further I am experiencing opposite to POIS i.e. relaxation of mind and peace can say, it is POST ORGASMIC HAPPINESS SYNDROME (not a syndrome). Yes, if I do, O after one hour exercise, I am experimenting, full of joy, happiness, its like heaven to me…. But, if I had O not after exercise, then again that 25% POIS symptoms. My yoga thereapist told this 25% would come to 0% in just two months. Logic behind my solution: c) As explained earlier, it was the problem in nervous system. Now because of yoga, my nervous system is strengthening. So, presently, I am having three solutions. a) 15 minutes exercise to recover from POIS attack if I had O in the nightb) One hour yoga to reduce the attack from 25% to 0% in next few monthsc) Had O immediately after yoga (i.e. like niacin experiment) to enjoy 0% POIS & especially happiness. Way forward: a) At presently, I shared only the macro level of the solution which I got. If any one of you find reduction is POIS symtoms, and if this theory is apply to all, then I am ready to share full one hour yoga exercise (containing many i.e. loosening exercise, dynamic exercise, pranayama, various types of breathing, yoga posture, relaxation technique). Waiting for your reply.
I have POIS and also a condition called Empty Sella Syndrome, which means that the pituitary gland is pressed flat in its cavity by Cranial Fluid that builds pressure due to an "incompetent diaphragm". This was revealed by a CT scan and I wonder if the compromised pituitary gland plays a role in POIS ? Has anyone else done a CT scan and found any irregularity with the pituitary gland ?My headache gets much worse a day after orgasm or even hot sex (along with the other usual POIS symptoms).
Hello,I am a 32-year old girl from Ukraine, living in Germany. I have the symptoms described throughout this thread for about 10 years, although I understand you are focusing on men here. Until very recently I was not aware that other people also suffer from this and there is actually a name for it.Years ago I underwent some tests and analysis related to my symptoms in Ukraine, but nothing helpful was found.I was wondering if anybody knows about research or doctors focusing on women suffering from POIS? Specifically I also wanted to ask if there is any information available on whether POIS is likely to be inherited? My husband and I are planning to have children and this causes great concern to me.Many thanks to everybody who has contributed to this thread so far and provided valuable information. I would appreciate any advice concerning my situation.Tatyana
Hi Tatyana. I see you seem to have acquired POIS around age 22. A bit later than puberty. Can you remember anything that happened to your life around that time that you suspect may have triggered it?Does it make any difference for you if its sex or masturbation? I assume it doesn't. For many here it is worse with the latter. I thought there have been a few stories of women being allergic to their husbands semen.How many days does it take for you to recover?Has it got worse or better for you over the decade? From the posts I have read on and off over the last 3 years, I have not seen any mention of a hereditary factor. I suspect many guys here are embarrassed by the condition and have keep quiet about it with their friends let alone discussed the condition (which did not have a name until a few yrs ago) with their parents. Mine thought I ended up with chronic fatigue syndrome (which I probably did at one stage) but early on they thought I was just lazy. Personally I suspect there is a hereditary element,,,not that any offspring will necessarily acquire it for sure, but just that there is a genetic weakness in the dna that makes us susceptible. (just my theory)
