Title: POIS story/ 10-day Green Smoothie Cleanse
Post by: hardhead14 on July 16, 2020, 02:00:56 AM
Hello Everyone,

I've been a lurker of this site on and off for sometime, just haven't been to interactive on here much. Same as alot of others here, i've been having problems with POIS since about 2012 back in high school. I remember the exact day when this started happening because it was almost like a light switch from being real sociable to an anxious mess. I couldn't really put my finger on what it was exactly until about 2014 which is when i ran into the NoFap movement and this forum shortly after. Some of the symtoms i have when i PMO are face numbness, eye itching, cognitive decline, less confidence, fatigue, easilty irratable, memory problems, not being witty anymore ;) and a steep rise in anxiety. Practicing semen retention has helped eliminate alot of this issues which all decline drastically by going 30+ days, even my freaking face being numb. I start to feel like myself and become witty in my interactions again but the moment i screw up, i feel like I'm back to square 1 and all those symptoms come crashing down on me  :-[.

Anyways enough of my POIS story. Over the past few years, I've seen other go real deep into so many different solutions and it's very hard to keep up with them all. Quite Frankly it can be overwhelming and hard to understand some of the posts (especially the long ones ;D) but that's probably because POIS is such a unknown confusing problem itself. I've been seeing people introduce leaky gut and I'm on a mission to explore what that's all about. I plan on going on a 10-day green smoothie juice cleanse starting tomorrow to see if it will have any benefits to my struggles. Hopefully if i see any benefits which most likely isn't going to be a cure, i will leave some updates. I would love to hear if anyone has had experiences on going on an extreme just juice cleanse.

Also, major props to all the people that have kept this forum up and running. I sincerly appreciate your efforts in finding a solution to this problem were all facing quietly in our worlds. Without you all, everyone would be on there own with little hope for future treatment.

hardhead14, thanks for your kind words about the forum.
Your welcome bud! 8)  Also, I just recently heard about the news for the new study which is very exciting. I'm sure the whole pandemic has put it on hold but has there been any recent news on it.

Sorry, your question is a little unclear to me. Are you saying what my symptoms were during POIS because i stated some of them.

Was there any factor in life when POIS appeared that might've caused/been related to it, e.g. virus, stress, illness, surgery, infection, probiotics/antibiotics, medicine, anything else?

O okay, gotchu. I would say I was pretty stress-free outgoing dude during the early times before anxiety symptoms hit me at once in 2012. I didn't understand that feeling so it definitely brought that (what is going on with me) stress in my life. I've had a Supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) ablation procedure done around 2014 which I also had to receive a cathether (which is the worse). Although around that time, things felt like they were getting worse but I'm unsure if my procedure could have been the result of POIS. I also discovered nofap which thought would help but it might have made things much worse. I would go long periods without releasing which was helpful but the moment i would relapse, other symptoms like itchy eyes, face numb, poor concentration started happening on top of anxiety feelings i was experiencing. I use to think maybe I just have anxiety, but the connection to being anxious and having many POIS symptoms only when i release is the part that makes me believe it's POIS. When i don't release, i start to feel like myself again. Very confusing.

Hi HH14,
How did it go with the green smoothies ?
I have been making myself green smoothies for over 3 years now.  It helps a lot to raise my energy and overall health.  Healthy nutrition helps make POIS symptoms less severe, for many, many members.

What do you think about those green powders.  What do you put in your smoothies again.
I barely eat veggies, I am trying to change that without having to cook .

Hi CP2,
You can find my recipe, in details, here at https://poiscenter.com/forums/index.php?topic=2497.msg21454#msg21454

No cooking, just a blender needed.  I feel more vitamins are spared when fruits and veggies are eaten raw - cooking tends to destroy some of the vitamins and beneficial nutriments.

No exactly how you feel, I get the same symptoms pros and cons.
Makes me feel like a natural fraud, never really knowing my true self until 2 months in with no ejaculation.
It's an awful syndrome.
I'm thinking of taking hard drugs to keep me going for at least the first 2 weeks after ejaculation.
Thank you for you post, keep us updated with your smoothie venture, I did hear a guy claim on youtube he cured himself this way, good luck
