Today, I started eating two cloves of crunched garlic in the morning, it helps as usual, not completely though. I chewed it in my mouth, and oh my god it's really hot. How does everyone bear with the heat? I'm not sure if I can handle another two cloves tomorrow.

I'll buy some fenugreek too, since many said it's better to pair fenugreek with garlic.

I usually chew only one clove of garlic and I wash down each bite with whole milk. Sometimes I add some cream to the milk to make it thicker. I take 2 fenugreek capsules right before I eat the garlic. Eating the garlic with another food such as bread or rice may work if you don't like milk.

I've never done garlic because of the social stigma! I guess you just have to say "the hell with it" right?

I LOVE garlic. But when I have some great chip dip with a lot of garlic or something, I can hardly stand myself the next day, not to mention the rest of the world.
How do you manage that?

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!

I only eat garlic when I know I won't have to be around anyone important the next day(s). Also I don't have much of a sense of smell so I can't smell it.
Taking ginger tea, no wheat, fenugreek+green tea/garlic, saw palmetto, niacin, boswellia, huperzine, B complex and nutmeg. See my treatment summary post for more info: http://poiscenter.com/forums/index.php?topic=81.msg3513#msg3513

Hi guys, I`m a new member here. I  almost read everything in this forum. I`ve pois since I was 12 and at this moment I`m 25.

There are many thing you guys already tried, like VitB`s, Vit C ...
I`ve been thinking about all the possible causes of POIS, like `what goes out has to go in` `allergy` `auto-immune`..
So I was thinking about the possible teatment; it sounds crazy, but I think we have to discuss it. Some members of my family and some other friends underwent the vasectomy as a permanent form of conception. I`m young and I want to have kids in the future, but for older people with POIS it may be a sollution. And there are many possibilities for this people to have children, like frozen sperm/undo the vasectomy, in case they decide to have children later.
 
Whats your opinion in this?
Thank you.

Hello all, just wanted to thank everyone here, I took niacin (B3) last night 20 minutes before having sex; I feel great today. Today was the first time in 8 years that I can work effectively after spending the night with my gf. Thank you for this discussion board, and if you havent already, please try niacin B3 vitamine.

Again, I dont know if this is a permanent fix, but as its been almost 24 hours with barely any symptoms, I still have a smile on my face. I am a grad student and was extremely inspired by the abc documentary featuring the Spanish student that started taking niacin and changed his life.

http://www.abc.net.au/catalyst/stories/3474801.htm

Please take a look at the video if you havent already. Although like all of you, Ive been suffering from this for sometime (as far back as I can remember) and hope one day soon we can have a cure to it. Ive seen 4 different doctors over the past 8 years about this and only recently did one shed some light on it and actually mentioned the name POIS to me. I dont know if Niacine is a temporary fix or not, or if it only works with specific cases. I hope future work can solve this mystery.

Keep the hope everyone, lets get the word out.

One more big thank you for this breathe of fresh air.

I believe this was the first newscast about POIS - 2011 This is the video Ive given to family give them more info about POIS. Most say, "I had no idea it was that bad!"  A must watch for POIS and others...

The Learning Channel's (TLC) feature TV presentation on POIS

Yep, that's our one and only "Animus", a member of our forums.

Animus graciously stepped forward, (Which is very hard for us to do) when they polled us to see if we had someone who would go public.

That show reached a LOT of sufferes. It's these kind of things that get the word out, help people to understand WHAT this really is.

THANK again Animus.
