Pronobis' and Martin's posts in French I just deleted a long post of mine, initially excited when I saw #1 Google results by searching on several words from Pronobis' and Martin's posts in French.But I then thought that maybe the search engine in France might work differently from ours. So I searched again, this time using Google.fr (Google France) and then...everything was turned upside down. I couldn't find the posts even in the first 3 pages of results!I tried Google.fr once again, this time adding "POIS" to Pronobis' and Martin's words. Sure enough, we came up #1. But that's cheating So...I guess we have more work to do to figure this out!
I suppose, the first thing that I should do is, like Demografx said, to test my testosterone.
Hey guys. Anybody wake up with excess "white stuff" in your mouth? I just realized I have candida and that is the main cause of my brain fog, it can cause hypoglycemia and a range of other symptoms. Right now I am taking acidophilus, and eating non sugar/carbohydrate foods. I believe this relates to pois somehow, maybe if some of you guys have candida.
Pronobis, regarding Google, I think the answer lies in having numerous posts in French in order to have Google.fr recognize us. Unfortunately, that's just not practical for us to do here. If anyone sees this differently, please share your thoughts. Thanks much for the efforts here.
Isn't there something that can be done about the wikipedia page? It really dismisses pois as some minor migraine.
certainly people in the U.S. of French ancestry or descent would search Google here and probably not Google.fr., even though the search terms might be in the French language.
UC Berkeley's Wellness Letter has some serious cautionary advice about 5-HTP, concluding that "the potential dangers of 5-HTP outweigh any possible benefits."http://www.wellnessletter.com/html/ds/ds5HTP.php [Links inactive - To make links active and clickable, login or click here to register]
I have an idea on spreading to different countries. Am guessing other countries have blogs or like a yahoo question/answer. We go to their yahooos ask/answer, ask and answer our questions on pois in their language and put a link to our website.
That's terrific, CC!What transpired in your discussions with the other two?
Botbot, I showed my endocrinologist the POIS paper by Waldinger. The study's co-author is also an endocrinologist, so I pointed that out to my doctor and my sense is that the research paper increased credibility immediately with my endo. I think others here have had similar experiences.
How much does it generally cost to see the endo including lab. Am going to have to pay to see endo and i am trying to plan ahead.

The lady author was more receptive- I told her my symptoms- she told the other author who wasnt to receptive- he just asked about my symptoms and some questions and stop there. - She recommneded that sex seminar that i told the group months ago. - told me good luck and keep her informed. I have emails if you want to talk to them.
Thank you, demografx. I have an endo appointment in mid-June, so I plan to do the reading/viewing you suggest.
SEARCH POIS FORUM WITH GOOGLEI just stumbled on this. As many of you know, the POIS forum Search function is a work in progress. Can be frustrating.So I searched Google to see how to better Google-search our POIS Forum. Why? Because we have an overwhelming amount of data: over 2 years' worth of posts from 130+ Forum members.In the Google search box, typewhatever you're interested in finding[space]site:http://www.thenakedscientists.com/for example, I trieddemografx site:http://www.thenakedscientists.com/and 1,000+ results came up for "demografx" within POIS Forum.whenever I tried to use Google "as is" - without the way I described above - I would typically find only about two (2) results.Google even provides you results with the Message# for each result.Happy Googling!
I just wrote a letter to Mary Roach, author of NY Times Top 10 Best Seller...Bonk: The Curious Coupling of Science and Sex, and speaker on "10 Things You Didn't Know About Orgasm" (her YouTube is at //www.youtube.com/watch?v=7jx0dTYUO5E [Links inactive - To make links active and clickable, login or click here to register] It is so important to get validation from a professional such as yourself that POIS is not "all in our heads." For too many years (over 30 in my case), POIS sufferers have experienced so much added misery from widespread lack of understanding. The first reaction of many physicians is to ship us off to a psychotherapist or psychiatrist. At this time, we believe that endocrinology holds the key to many of our problems. Attached is a copy of the first paper written on POIS in 2002. The co-author is an endocrinologist. Thank you again for all your help! My very best regards,[demo]
demographx good job, I love the way you are broadcasting it. I think it is time for you to check other hormones other than testerone, you might something else low. may be neurotransmitters.
