Why is POIS less hard during the summer?
« on: August 10, 2018, 12:54:42 PM »
I think I got 50% less symptoms during the summer. The only thing I can point out is vitamin D. But what if you take high dose vitamin D?
POIS since 2000. Very bad since 2008. I knew that I have POIS since June 2010. Desensitization since March 2011. I stopped with desens in July 2016. I have 70% less POIS. And only 1 day of POIS. Purified CBD works for me, but I am allergic for CBD.

i have done it before, i used about 8000iu vitd3 in one dose. i felt pseudo relief. I got energy like i was on caffeine. The energy masked the symptoms  a little but by next day i was back in pois.

I think vit D is a cofactor of a lot of things and that's why a lack seems to increase Pois symptoms during winter.
Taurine = Anti-Pois

But I take high dose vitamin D. So now my vitamin D level is also high during winter.

A bunch of stuff comes to mind:

- Sun and vit D (already mentioned)

- Our immune system changes during the summer, see https://www.livescience.com/50806-seasonal-variation-human-genes-immune-inflammation.html

- General feeling of wellbeing (caused by sunlight and warmer temperatures)

- Stress might be an issue. During summer, people often work less, and go on a holiday. Also colleagues and customers might go on holiday, which may cause a reduction of stress.

- Exercise. During summer, people might do more exercise (e.g. take a bicycle to work, or go surfing, swimming, diving, etc.)

- Socializing. During summer, people might be more social, which may affect mental symptoms.

- Cold showers. People might take more cold showers during summer. Some people indicated some relief from cold showers.

Some things that might be related but I don't know how:

- During summer, people sweat more, and lose electrolytes and sodium.

- Because of the heat, the scrotum hangs lower (again, not sure what the significance would be for POIS, but should be considered).

- Circadian clock is affected by seasons.

If you want to experiment, you could try:

- Light therapy lamp during winter, e.g. https://www.usa.philips.com/c-p/HF3418_60/energylight

- Saunas and/or cold showers during winter

Male. POIS symptoms: red eyes, ear-pain, anxiety, speech problems, pale/ugly skin, stiff neck, double chin, tinnitus, light sensitivity. POIS even after stimulation without O.

I am curious of if there is a member here who lives in an tropical country. Where the weather is almost the same the whole year. Like Florida. Where the sun shines almost the whole year. And if their POIS is the same during winter and summer.

Hello Nas, have you been living in a less cold environment during some time in your life? I found that I was heat sensitive and that heat and high temperatures could exarcebate my POIS symptoms as much as cloudy, wet days.

He means maybe you lived a few years in another country. But that’s what I thought: that if the temprature is almost the same the whole year then the POIS is stable. Here in The Netherlands there is a big difference in my symptoms during summer or winter. During summer I can be sexual active twice a week. During winter maybe twice a month.

My POIS doctor said that the main reason is vitamin D. He said that the vitamin D of POIS patients must be at least 130 during the whol year. Mine was 80 in the winter. Now it’s 160. I will try to keep my level during tye whole year around 150. Then I hope my POIS is also not so bad during winter.

Above 300 is toxic.

Hi Vandemolen.  Is you "POIS Doctor" already on my list of POIS doctors? See http://poiscenter.com/forums/index.php?topic=2575.msg22338#msg22338 .  If not, do you think he should be on the list, because he knows about POIS and has an interest in understanding it and finding a treatment for it?

No he is not on the list. He asked me not to make his name public because they have already a lot of patients. Including POIS patients.

Ok, thanks anyway.   If he changes his mind, just let me know :)
