Now I think those things are all so interconnected it's crazy. :o

My fatigue is improved by a certain licorice candy which makes the slow transit go faster. I can really feel the relief when the gut works faster, it also pushes my general energy production up. Hard to describe.

"If the intestines don't work well the first thing is to improve the food so you can absorb nutrients better. If there's a bloating belly simple you have a bad nutrient absorption so any bloating belly is a sign of malabsorption because there's inflammation of the intestinal tract so if you have inflammation the cells are like sick and they don't absorb well and they can also have a leaky gut so you can get substances that are unwanted inside and so that's why you need to decrease the inflammation and the best thing is the way you eat when you have a bloating belly you should skip a meal [Dont eat after 17 pm] that's the first thing to do you should do, also eat maybe boiled foods and eat less foods in in general and better food choice so if you take milk products and grains and bread you will always inflame and sugar and sweets and chocolate"

I think I greatly improved this proble by taking Carmenthin which is an acid resistent capsule with peppermint oil and caraway seed oil. (for many months now).
This goes a bit into the SIBO corner, although I'm now thinking SIBO is just somehing that results from low motility.

Carmenthin = Menthacarin.

I still sometimes take Iberogast. I drink black coffee every morning. I take a walk every day.

I don't have POTS-like symptoms anymore usually, although this might be related to the season (autumn/winter, no hay fever anymore). Or my POTS was solved somehow magically  ???

As written in other thread, my POIS is quite good recently even when not using adaoptogens or Quantum's pre-pack. Only big problem is strong evening fatigue on the day after orgasm and mental exhaustion.

gut motility not workin
as it should, so valves in intesines like ileoccecal can stay open
when it shouldnt be or sty closed long perio of times..

Food’s transit time through body is a key factor in digestive health
https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2016/06/160627125525.htm
“In short, our study shows that the longer food takes to pass through the colon, the more harmful bacterial degradation products are produced. Conversely, when the transit time is shorter, we find a higher amount of the substances that are produced when the colon renews its inner surface, which may be a sign of a healthier intestinal wall,”

Sounds very "duh" but this problem seems fixed again, by sipping Yakult or Actimel with meals. 1 to 1.5 bottles (they are small!) per day.

Takes a few days to get accustomed to (initial flatulence, better don't take it in evening..).

Makes my mood during the day much calmer than before, less agression and MORE ENERGY. I'm really surprised it has such a big effect!

I think I for sure fixed this.

I'm taking a probiotic called Omnibiotic SR-9 which is claimed to help for fatigue and stress resistence.

Additionally, I drink 1 small bottle of Actimel/Yacult during the day.

Of course I also drink 1-2 cups of coffee during the day, the number 1 supplement.

I take serotine influecing supplements (Ashwagandha, Rosea Rhodiola) only as acute medicine, not chronic daily usage.
