To lower copper, they say one has to avoid copper rich foods like chocolate, yeast, mushrooms, soy products, wheat germ and bran, shellfish and organ meats, and to eat more foods rich in zinc such as chicken, turkey, red meats, game meats, and pumpkin seeds.
Just thinking about a dedicated website for POIS. Continue this thread here on TNS of course, but set up some other facilites (blogs, FAQ, RSS, newsletter, research, researchers, doctors, wiki, etc) in a more structured way. Might be easier to keep people informed and attract attention to POIS on the 'social networking' front.Counterpoints : not sure if you've had luck finding somewhere to host your survey; would you consider publishing it on a dedicated site?Any suggestions for a domain name? ( pois.org is already taken )I know a web developer who might be willing to set up a basic site. It might also be possible to cover hosting costs with google adsense.Might need people to volunteer as admins / moderators etc (very light duties I'm guessing).Might need a very small amount of graphic design too (anyone like playing with photoshop)?Everyone, please feel free to say what you think of this.
In the study pregnenolone and DHEA (DHA) levels are increased after masturbation!I think supplementing DHEA is not always the key to the success.I am 40 years old and had in 2004 a hormone test,hours after I masturbated 1-2x/day for 2 weeks.The value DHEA was 305 ug/dl (150-400)!Estradiol was very low, progesterone and STH also!DHT was very very increased! cortisol increased.
I was symptom free at the beginning of this current episode, but 3-5 days later I have experienced symptoms: mentally wiped, dull pain in lower back, a barely perceivable ache in groin area. My current thoughts: my problem (and possibly ours) is due to chronic prostatis. I have been tested for this years ago when I was relentlessly going to doctors looking for a cure. I had my PSA checked, secretion analyzed, semen ananlyzed, had more than one physical and had a camera jammed up my urethra for a look-see. Everything was "normal". But what I'm feeling now is telling me the tests were imperfect. Perhaps it is easier on a swollen prostate when you eat soluble fiber, less pressure against it. This of course would not explain girlwind's situation, but at the moment I am convinced.
the symptoms of CP/CPPS appear to result from an interplay between psychological factors and dysfunction in the immune, neurological and endocrine systems.Theories behind the disease include stress-driven hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis dysfunction and adrenocortical hormone (endocrine) abnormalities, neurogenic inflammation, and myofascial pain syndrome. In the latter two categories, dysregulation of the local nervous system due to past trauma, infection or an anxious disposition and chronic albeit unconscious pelvic tensing lead to inflammation that is mediated by substances released by nerve cells
I have a question about where the name POIS came from--who coined that name? Was it this forum that came up with it?
