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

Quick update:

80% sure I am sensitive to eggs, but their nutritional content is definitely worth consuming them. Might play around with just havin the yolks. May also be when I take the B complex with eggs (too much choline or B vitamins maybe?)

Taking "Mega Spore Biotic" at the recommendation of Functional Med specialist. Seems to illicit a brainfog/headachey reaction. Took in the past with no issues, but now seems to be causing some symptoms. Die off maybe? Who knows.

Have ordered a challenged heavy metals test, so will be testing that soon. Looking forward to the results...

Done a lot of urine analysis w/ prostatic massage / pH testing for any signs of bacterial (using chem10), etc as a urine analysis showed a pH level of 8. But since then, pH seems to be back to normal. High pH, and other chem10 measures can indicate possible bacterial infection.

Need to measure blood pressure in mild POIS state & compare to 3-6+ days of abstinence.

All following the advice of my functional med specialist. The goal is to reverse my food sensitivities & obviously root cause of POIS.

I got into the same situation: https://poiscenter.com/forums/index.php?topic=2192.msg46668#msg46668

First I thought it was about the sulfur.
Now I blame the beef liver pills for it, they have a lot of copper. https://poiscenter.com/forums/index.php?topic=4402.msg47009#msg47009

After stopping the beef liver for 2-3 weeks, I can handle eggs again it seems.

I'm researching (again, did this many years ago too  :( ) into Pyroluria again which IMHO relates to high copper => low zinc.
I have another hair mineral analysis scheduled, let's see about that.

For me, I notice they can worsen my anhedonia. Especially on days I am experiencing very subtle low symptoms (usually days 1-3 ish post release).

Eggs definitely remain a net benefit for me in general, but the feels of anhedonia I sometimes experience (only for a few hours following eating them) can be annoying. Seems to be related to egg consumption, although I need to test it more.

Look into a challenged heavy metals urine test. I think it may be more accurate than the hair mineral test.

Going to experiment with Nanna1's POIS Cascade stack to see if I notice any difference.

Looks very interesting. Also many of the things I take which have improved my POIS seem closely related (B complex, eggs, choline, etc).

Animal-based is still the superior diet for my POIS.

My only struggle is that I often do not feel like I am eating enough carbs.

Need to experiment with these foods to see if they effect my symptoms:
- peeled and thoroughly boiled white potatoes (home-made oven baked white potatoes with some skin on exacerbates symptoms)
- sweet potatoes

For some reason, I also appear to be sensitive to apples. Who knows.

White rice just doesn't work for me unfortunately.  :(

Few updates to my protocol:

- fenugreek & garlic isn't really all that necessary to take before or immediately after release. As long as I take it at some point after releasing (like the following morning), it speeds up and improves the recovery process. It obviously is ideal to take asap, but isn't urgent or worth stressing over at all
- red meat seems to be extremely important to take on recovery days 1-3 post release. Eggs on their own dont seem to fair too well on recovery days. Must be combined with red meat at the very least, otherwise this leads to worsening symptoms on those recovery days
- coffee helps a lot, especially on recovery days. Not sensitive to coffee, which is great

Hi everyone.

I have a very exciting and interesting lead to share.

Recently I have started following Nanna1s POIS Cascade Stack. It has been on my todo list for a while. Well, I wish I tested it earlier.

As soon as I started taking the SAM-e, along with all the other recommended supplements (most of which I was already taking), I noticed my food sensitivities clear up pretty much immediately. I was experiencing a clear mood even after eating foods that strayed away from my animal-based diet (things like white rice, thai curries, vegetables, etc which would normally give me symptoms!). This was mind boggling and exciting.

For me there is a direct correlation between the negative symptoms following eating certain foods while abstaining, and how those foods affect my POIS symptoms negatively. So, if I dont feel good after eating a certain food while abstaining, then the chances are it will exacerbate my POIS symptoms when triggered. Clearly, my food sensitivities and POIS are part of the same problem.

Today I ejaculated and for the first time in 6 years experienced zero symptoms. Ziltch. Even after eating a lot of rice and vegetables! This is nuts for me.

So I've just spent the entire afternoon absorbing and consuming all of Nanna1s posts. The guy really does sound like a genius. I am going to be following his protocol and immune competence therapy from here on out. Will keep yous updated with how it goes.

Obviously it is still very early on, which is why I have labelled this as a lead.

Great news. I hope your future attempts result in no symptoms as well.

Thanks Thomas. Still completely symptom-free, even while eating a now normal diet. This past week I have been completely blown away by it. Have you tried Nanna1s Cascade Stack?

Nanna1's theory also offers an explanation for my corresponding food sensitivities. Excerpt taken from POIS treatment: theory & supplement stack:

During normal sexual activity, histamine is not elevated (Becker et. al. 2011). However, POIS-like symptoms could be stimulated by non-coital external allergens (food, pollution, etc...), by replacing norepinephrine with either histamine or glutamate, and replacing a1A receptor with either the h1-histaminergic (h1H) or NMDA (NR2B) receptor. For example, histamine stimulation of h1H upregulates the enzyme Phospholipase A2, leading to the same release of PC and AA as discussed above [5, 6].

Currently in the process of purchasing supplements to begin the immune competence therapy.

Even if the immune competence therapy doesn't ultimately cure me (although I am very optimistic given that I am responding to Nanna1s Cascade Stack), Nanna1s theory & supplement stack (especially the SAMe) is a HUGE lead for my functional medicine specialist to work from moving forward.

This is impressive.

Does SAMe work directly within a few hours, or do you still have to take it for a few days before it takes effect?

Have you tried Nanna1s Cascade Stack?

I'm definitely gonna try it, although I'm not sure I'm on the same POIS clusters as Nanna1 and you.

I'm definitely gonna try it, although I'm not sure I'm on the same POIS clusters as Nanna1 and you.

Seems like it began working after a day or so… from my memory, Nanna1 recommends you wait a month to truly determine if it works for you as some of the ingredients have a slow diffusion across the blood brain barrier. I’ve been taking a B complex for a long time as it helped enormously for my POIS and mental health in general when I began taking it - so I assume that my B vitamins and choline have been well stocked up for a while. Supplementation of Omega3 and D3 take time to build up apparently, so I just recently began supplementing them again with the protocol.

Pretty sure Nanna1 believes his solution covers multiple POIS clusters: 1,3,4,5,7 POIS criteria: 1,2,3,4,5 hence he's disclosed that in his forum bio.

I even experimented having gluten yesterday and releasing. The Cascade stack continues to hold up. My mood is better than ever, it’s honestly unbelievable. Now from everything I’ve learnt about health and chronic disease going through this journey, I am definitely still sticking to a gluten free diet and would non-medically recommend that for all, but it’s nice to know a little bit of gluten isn’t really going to harm me.

Sounds like this is the bro-science understanding of what’s going on:

Immune dysfunction/viral element -> POIS triggered -> makes me extremely sensitive to pretty much all plant foods -> significantly worsens POIS symptoms

Nanna1’s POIS Cascade Stack stops POIS trigger higher up in the “Cascade” of events -> no longer experiencing POIS or sensitivity to plant foods

Warrior, do you hawe neutropenia?
Yes. I had neutropenia in the past and was always convinced this was caused by POIS. For years I had low neutrophils on my routine bloods - always around 1.8 from memory. They only began improving once my symptoms began to improve with my old protocol. Even then I imagine they still weren't that high or in the optimal range even on my old protocol, as I was still experiencing a decent amount of symptoms compared to how I feel now. Here's a link to my post on low neutrophils & an experiment I did..

Nanna1's POIS Cascade Stack still working very well. Over 1 month in.

Erased all food sensitivities and POIS as long as I stick to it.

Dear warrior ,

1) Is there any side effects of using SAM-e for a long time? I mean does it affect our liver bad way?
 I heard it is usually recommended maximally for 12 weeks.. So using it for the life time could damage the liver?
2) Does it solved your cognitive problems like speech problems and brain fog?
3) Did you started Nanna1 immuno stack yet?

2) Does it solved your cognitive problems like speech problems and brain fog?
3) Did you started Nanna1 immuno stack yet?

1) As far as I know, its safe for most people. But you will find info on possible side effects on the net. I heard its actually good for the liver. Everyone is different though, so you will only know how it effects you by taking it. I'm not a medical professional, but from my experience so far ive experienced zero side effects and have been taking 200mg of Jarrows SAM-e twice a day.

2) Solves all cognitive symptoms. Best it's ever been, even when comparing it to my old animal-based approach. It's just more reliable. Feels like it cuts closer to the root cause, which is what Nanna1 talks about. On my animal-based approach, I always felt different for at least a day. Now with Nanna1's method, I don't really feel much different at all while being able to eat a completely normal diet - I can even tolerate gluten completely. Overloading the system with excessive ejaculations, like 3 in one day, does seem to produce minor symptoms from my experience.

Anhedonia, especially in the context of social situations, has been one of my biggest struggles when its come to the mild POIS symptoms (back in the day, intense anxiety, fatigue, brainfog, was obviously the most unpleasant before I knew anything.) This has pretty much revolutionised that, while being able to enjoy a normal diet.

3) I have everything purchased, just need to restart. Some trouble with Omega-3 supplementation has slowed me down. Gave me anxiety, brain fog, and irritability, so I had to stop everything and figure out what was causing it. Initially I was worried that the effectiveness of Nanna1s POIS Cascade stack was dwindling. Nope, turned out to be an Omega-3 supplement I had recently begun taking for the POIS Cascade stack. Now I just eat regular sardines with extra virgin olive oil in some apple cider vinegar frequently for the Omega-3. And back to feeling amazing, POIS free.

SAM-e is really the only new ingredient. All the rest I was pretty much taking already like the B complex and choline from eggs, vitamin d from sun, omega3 from red meat and sardines (and eating a low omega6 diet).

Correct me if I'm wrong but according to Nanna1's theory, your animal-based approach should not improve your POIS (Arachidonic acid).
