General Alternative Causes and Treatments of POIS / Re: Meditation
« Last post by JohnJames on Today at 10:04:58 AM »
I had POIS for at least 15 years.

My main symptoms were:
- brain fog
- extreme fatigue
- flu
- concentration issues

Generally, it last for 3-4 days.

I tried several treatments:
- paracetamol, antihistaminics
- nyacin
- vitamins
- ...

But no one helped me improve my symptoms.

Then, I decided to try meditation. After lot of different meditations, I can say today, almost 80% of symptoms disapeared (mostly brain fog that was so annoying at work...).

Even if it's Placebo effect, I can only recommend you to try this unorthodox method, especially, if you have tried lot of things and no ones worked for you.

I will advise to begin with basic meditations (concentrating on your breath and focusing to empty your mind), you can find lot of such meditations on internet.

Then, when I was more confident with basic meditation, I continued trying to cure myself with more sex-oriented meditations (improving sexual energy, removing shame around sex/masturbation, releasing chastity vows from past lives, ...).

Even, if this can sound totally weird, I think people here will mostly want to cure themselves than to focus on the method used.

Give it a try, it can't harm you  :)

I've meditated for up to 3-4 hrs a day and done full meditation retreats meditating up to 10hrs a day for 2 weeks on end. Didn't help my POIS in the slightest. My symptoms lasted for 7 days and beyond.

It did bring many many other benefits though.

JohnJames, thanks for your detailed response. I think it's been proven that chlorella does chelate mercury though, see this paper.

Hopeoneday, thanks for your input as well.

Chlorella does not chelate, Chelators have very specific chemical properties which causes mercury to chemically bond to the chelator. You can look at a molecule and determine whether or not it will or won't form a bond with mercury. Chelate/Chelation the word has a very specific meaning, substances which remove mercury doesn't mean they chelate mercury.

Chemistry is not my field of expertise so can't tell you much more.

With regards to the study, the study does not show that Chlorella chelates because it physically can't, it also doesn't show that Chlorella detox's mercury. However, it doesn't show that it does not detox mercury either.

If you read the method carefully, you'll see that during the 90 days of supplementation the patients removed their fillings, which means they changed more than 1 variable during the course of the study. The control group also did not have any amalgam fillings. The supplements they used was an entire regime, not just Chlorella, one such supplement they used was Selenium which has documented interactions with mercury. The study also only took 1 sample at d0 and d90 and did not monitor mercury levels throughout the entire process.

In order to prove Chlorella was doing something my guess is they'd have to compare a control group whom remove their fillings vs a group whom remove their fillings and take Chlorella.

It also only looked at blood levels of mercury. Mercury in the blood has a relatively low half-life (in the weeks) anyway and naturally decreases after removing ongoing exposures. Cellular mercury and mercury in the brain we don't know the half-life but estimations put it in the decades.

It seems to correlate with my other symptoms, i.e. the stronger the overall symptoms, the redder my eyes are. They also feel a little sore and itchy.
Mast cell problems.

Hey guys, just thought I'd mention that I also have red eyes as part of my symptom set. It was actually one of the symptoms that made me realise I had POIS, because my eyes look bloodshot very soon after orgasm (seconds, or a few minutes at most). It seems to correlate with my other symptoms, i.e. the stronger the overall symptoms, the redder my eyes are. They also feel a little sore and itchy.

This one should have less side effects than benadryl Demo: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rupatadine

It also is anti-PAF and inhibits TNF-alpha from mast cells. Not sure if it is available in the USA.

Something about POIS affects the meibomian glands which line your eyelids. It probably is a meibomian gland, not the tear duct that got infected and pus filled. Relatedly, the blocked glands appear to cause or be paired with increased bacterial growth on the lids and lashes. This is the condition known as blepharitis. Most opthamologist will easily diagnose the blepharitis.

Yes it's the meibomian gland. Got blepharitis as well without red eyes, though the inner lining of the eye lid is red and channels are clogged. These type of glands are also present in skin and other places where they secrete oily substances. I also have some kind of acne on my back and shoulders that could indicate problems with the sebaceous gland family. During very hot weather conditions it may liquify and can be released all at once on your eyes. I got this chemical eye mask that will heat up if you snap it, similar to glow sticks that light up when you bend it but the thermal variant.

I would go to an opthamologist Vandemolen to rule out blepharitis.

Opies...as far I'm concerned you are now the official POIScenter authority on red eyes :D. My mother sometimes have these blood eyes where no white of the eye is visible.

Edit: my 2 cents: Probably inflammation of glands. Some may have inflammation of sebaceous glands others could have inflamed endocrine glands leading to low testosterone for example.

 I could not find a topic about Benadryl. But I also ordered it. It is not available in The Netherlands, so it has to be shipped. How do you use Benadryl? Do you take before or after O.

Thanks, I made an appointment for IPL (Intense Pulse Light). I hope it will work. I also have dry ears, dry nose, dry throat and a dry skin.
