Not diagnosed still but for me it now was MCAS 99%. Used quercentin/vit c/galangal for a week (with meals) and noticed some improvements. Just went to the pharmacy and bought antihistamines and after an O I am just as sharp as if nothing happened. I am literally studying right now on 6h of sleep after a hot shower etc. and two pizzas. Things that without the AH certainly would have ruined more than just today.

Used loratadine. If you don't know that you don't have MCAS and don't have a AH history, just go and buy antihistamines for a couple bucks. I didn't know this simple solution could literally save my life.
Does your loratadine contains pseudoephedrine?

I strongly recommend taking cold showers before going to sleep.

"and two pizzas". Those times are gone. If I eat ony half a pizza I get horrible POIS symptoms and bloating for days. POIS is definitly a gut issue for me. Most certain it caused by bad "pizza"- bacteria that feast on starchy foods. As long as my gut is calmed and not bloated the POIS symptoms are lower or almost gone. It's a battle to keep it that way. I have to use oregano oil, garlic pills, gut cleansing pills, bonebroth, L-glutamine, coconut oil, billberry. Additionally I have to take walks 2-4 times a day (improve gut movements) and not eat after 18:00 (regenerating the gut). After O the gut is specifically sensitive and only accepting fluent foods. That has made me loose 10 kg in weight and its very hard to gain it back.

I think POIS is connected with some kind of deep stress and being unable to sleep properly. I wonder if research about this has been done - Quality of sleep by poisers

I agree, getting enough sleep is super important for hormonal health and long term sleeping issues can ruin the hormonal balance. For me keeping a strict going to bed rutine is crucial for the sleep quality. Also:

Getting light/sun
Getting exercise, walking
Not watching TV/Computer/phone 1 hour before sleep. calm down the brain
Not going to bed after 11 pm. According to Chinese medicine the liver detoxes itself between 11 pm and 2 am. If you'r awake that time, poisons are beeing concentrated and are still in the blood system the following day.
Cool bedroom
C-vitamin (acid neutral) before going to bed

I strongly advice doing cold showers before going to sleep. EVERY DAY, that's important.
That will reduce pois symptoms greatly.

I may have to point out that galangal is actually called Kaempferia galanga and not without a reason. The compound called kaempferol that I so highly praise can be found in the rhizomes in high concentration.
Kaempferia galanga, commonly known as kencur, aromatic ginger, sand ginger, cutcherry, or resurrection lily, is a monocotyledonous plant in the ginger family, and one of four plants called galangal.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kaempferia_galanga
As I pointed out in my research thread kaempferol and quercetin probably has a synergestic effect.
https://poiscenter.com/forums/index.php?topic=3733.0
Actually I have found out about galangal in this article and it also contains other interesting information such as chocolate having a FAAH inhibitor property due to N-linoleoylethanolamide and N-oleoylethanolamide.

"sometimes harder to look in eyes"

Hello Journey, It doesn't matter what caused pois, don't you see that low confidence is 100% psychological? Even if you had some kind of strange parasite and no testosterone the fact that you can't look in people's eyes is only psychological.

I agree with you with a bunch of things, specifically IBS. A lot of your symptoms describe what I go through to an uncanny level.
But I 100% disagree that it?s psychological. I believe that consciousness and confidence is mostly biochemical. There has been so many occasions in which I felt great confidence and intense motivation to work on something for long periods of time without a need to mediate or anything.
I have a heart math HRV device that I use in conjunction with deep breathing a lot, it helps reach a noticeable zen state when I?m depressed and my thoughts are scrambled. But it never made a huge improvement to the point That I?m able to become socially fluid, or be able to do something ballsy, or even to look at people in the eye, or actually finish a project.

I have tried so many times to get connected with my body and my breath to try to wither the shit storms but the effects were always minimal at best. I even went to expensive Tony Robbins events and tried a bunch of electronic shit in his seminars including something called nucalm which hijacks the breath to a snail to reduce cortisol, that?s besides the daily wim hof method or the hot yoga, or also the Healy device. Their effects were noticeable but they never stuck.   But when I took the dark chocolate, avoided masterbation, fasted for a period of time.  My whole person changes radically and effortlessly to the point where I?m actually able to become a social butterfly, I reach such a manic state that I literally unable to recognize my self anymore.

There are anicdoes of people doing some sort of neural retraining using an expensive course that teaches you how to meditate to alter your Vegas nerve. I believe this works only when the body is at a good homeostasis level.I don?t believe the POIS state is a good homeostasis level to be able to alter the body with the mind, thus it requires some sort of biochemical intervention first to reach homeostasis. Once one is away from the POIS state or any kind of crap induced biochemical state, then yes the yoga and meditation will work.

As long as I took the daily collagen POIS was reduced 90%. But the hair loss sped up significantly and I was slightly depressed

I think you follow a paleo diet. Have you tried reducing your salt intake to a dramatic level? Once I reduced my salt intake dramatically about for 3 days till my food tasted bland, my hair Loss stopped dramatically.
I also was doing a vegan diet at the time, but I believe that had nothing to do with it. It was only the reduction in salt that fixed the hair loss.

Grounding equipment (pillow and band) has made a massive difference to my sleep and just general wellbeing, you feel it instantly when you put on the grounding band around you wrist or leg. Grounding balances the charge of electron-deficient free radicals (lowers them) and improves circulation and inflammation. Before using the grounding equipment I found it hard to wake up and get out of bed at 9-10am and felt really bad and brain foggy, now I wake up at 7-45 naturally and feel much less brain fog in the mornings. It sounds a bit crazy but its something you need to try first to see how well it works before you judge, I've tried things like vagus nerve stimulators, tdcs and they are no where near as effective as this grounding equipment. There has been some scientific studies that show it does have benefits. I tried grounding in my garden before but it didn't have the same effects as these products do.
https://www.groundology.co.uk/about-grounding I bought my stuff from here.


For some reason grounding either outside in the forest or plugged into the grounding cable constantly gives me instant insomnia. It definitely affects my body some how yet It?s currently negative.
Btw, did you know you can plug in a small copper wire to the soul of your shoes and now your constantly grounded when outside !  Your welcome ;D

Isn't psychological the health of the mind? So chemical imbalances can fall into that category?
My POIS managed with Diet (@ diet that 100% manages my pois)Believe my POIS stems from inflammation in the gut. O = neuro POIS from inflammation from the gut

Current supps: 2.5 mg zyrtec nightly for food allergies, microdose astragalus daily, microdose cranberry vit c pill daily. Ibuprofen rarely.

True. I confused words. What I meant is psychological as in mental. As in the consensus tries to treat the problem mentally by learning discipline through activities such as yoga and meditation. The biochemical aspect of it only goes as far as an ssri.

This causes one to learn how to cope with the condition but not cure it. I hope I make more sense now  :D

You could be lacking Magnesium, Calcium and Potassium and your Sodium intake unrevealed those problems
