The Netherlands.

Another member of NSF already made a list where the members are from:

http://sites.google.com/site/poiswebsite/pois-map


The chart below (double click to enlarge) is from the site mentioned. Good work guys.

As they mention on the site, it may well reflect internet access demographics more than a reality of POIS distribution, but at least we can see on the map where our "brothers" reside. Comforting somehow!

WITHOUT RESEARCH THERE WILL BE NO CURE!
Sessions 5 to 9 days, mostly Flu-like, joints, digestion problems, light cognitive.
Niacin has changed my lif though, now 1 day MAX.
Somewhere in this interaction with Niacin is the answer!

It's good to see responses, thanks.

This weekend, I'll be taking a buzz around NSF, rather than just look at the last posts, and I'll try to come back with a sort of outline of a summary, which I'll post here.

But keeping in mind that this is a place where newbies and researchers alike will be coming for something clear and concise, this thread will just be the work area. We throw around ideas a bit, suggest important things to be included in the summaries, maybe special high lights etc.

From all that, our committee will start to summarize. As we see the summary being completed, we'll probably do a clean up of this work area, for instance, as we have complete data of country of origin, we'll resume it all in a separate thread and remove it from the work area.

What we leave and remove from the work area will depend. Sometimes it's good to see the development of a concept or discussion, and so those can be left, but pure data would be best to be cleaned up.

Hopefully it will become clearer as we progress.

One thing we need is a good treatment summary which includes for each item a "proven" protocol for its consumption.

Please can we start noting any that we can think of, like niacin, fenugreek, etc.

Note here in this thread.

Post a summary for the item or at least a link to where one can be found. We will take care of organizing everything and putting it into a clear clean summary in the "What is POIS" section.

I'm from Spain. So now we are 2 members from Spain.

I take 100mg Niacin before having an "o". And also daily multivitamin with probiotic helps me a little.
