Do you still take mastic, probiotics, or turkey tail?  Or are you done with all of the supplements?

I am currently taking probiotics and turkey tail but I don't think they are responsible for me being rid of pois.  A few weeks ago I did take mastic for another week, not because I had symptoms but just because I have it on hand and thought mabye it could  help me somehow.

John21 can you please confirm your caprylic acid dosage? 22.5mg seems extremely low.

Oops yes you are right I read the bottle wrong! The brand name is Caproil. The bottle says take 2 teaspoons per day, each teaspoon contains 22.5mg marigold extract, 525mg caprylic acid. The way it is written confused me, sorry about that. I'll see if I can change my list in the previous post.

FYI, I've moved some of the recent mastic posts here to the new thread that John21 had created especially for mastic gum:

Thanks, Berlin!
10 years of significant POIS-reduction, treatment consisting of daily (365 days/year) testosterone patches.

TRT must be checked out carefully with your doctor due to fertility, cardiac and other risks.

40+ years of severe 4-days-POIS, married, raised a family, started/ran a business

How did it go?

This thread inspired me and led me to my cure.
I have had all the horrible symptoms, brainfog, fatigue, dizziness, impaired speech, feeling unreal, nasal congestion, body aches, very stiff neck for over 15 years.

What did the trick?
I stopped eating ANYTHING but probiotic yoghurts of different kinds with granola mixed with either blueberries, raspberries, apples, pear or other fruit and also a lactobacillus reuteri pill daily... Oh, and in the beginning I went through several bottles of lactulose...

I dont dare or want or feel the need to eat anything else for now, its been a year and I feel so good compared to before. I can feel joy, I can work, I have energy to take care of kids, I hear what people say when talking to me instead of ignoring....

What were the cultures of the yoghurt? Are you male or female?

Which lactobacillus reuteri strain / product did you take? Are still taking the probiotic or have you stopped that?

Biogaia Protectis / the strain 6475 seem to be anti-inflammatory and boosting testosterone (in mice) so there is a link to others on this board being helpful by testosterone.

No offence, but there's no way your diet exclusively consists of yogurt mixed with granola and fruit for a year. You'd be pretty malnourished. Even vegans have a hard time cutting out just meat from their diet while still staying properly nourished let alone meats and vegetables.

What was your reasoning for taking lactulose? Was that related to POIS or was it for constipation?
