I felt that I wanted to wait until “I” was sure that I am recovered as I know what it’s like to recover and then crash. This is the longest recovery I have had (it’s lasted a month now) and it happened immediately after I did what is mentioned below so I feel it’s safe to post this now.
You may read my introduction post but a quick summary is I used Finasteride for around eleven years as well as Dutasteride (Avodart) for a year of that time. After discontinuing both I had a huge meltdown/crash which led to me lurking here for a long time and eventually joining.
I have spent an absurd amount of time researching to understand what these drugs did to my body to get a clue as to how to resolve it as my brain fog was debilitating and I have a girlfriend to please. I believe that this drug has a negative impact on our bodies in more than one way. I’m not going to provide my theory here as to what all the several problems are because it’s extremely lengthy although I may post a video on it later.
In short, one of the many problems this drug has created is it has in a sense made our livers toxic/less effective. Our livers play a large role in helping to balance our bodies temperature and our PH levels. When it’s not working correctly you will have lower body temperature and your body will have a more difficult time maintaining PH levels in the body. This is due to some down regulation of 3A-HSD which would lead to poor PH as well as low amounts of DHT to 3-ADIOL-G conversion.
What you will need:
Gugulipid (around 10$) - Will help detox the liver enzyme which converts T4 into T3. It also helps break down cholesterol which is involved in the conversion of DHT.
Sodium Bicarbonate: AKA Baking Soda (around 3$) - Highly Alkalizing which will assist your body in PH balance during the process.
Tap Water (DO NOT use bottled water) - Why not bottled water? I tested four bottled waters I purchased at the store with my digital PH tester and they were all either slightly acidic or borderline acidic. This is because bottled water takes time to ship, sits in heat and goes through processes and loses it’s alkalinity. Tap water, although not the cleanest has a great PH level of around 7.8 and it’s exactly what I used (I only drank filtered bottled water before) and it won’t kill you.
Organic Apple Cider Vinegar 3$ - Has strong alkalizing affect once inside the body amongst other benefits.
Fresh Organic Fruits and Vegetables. Synthetic foods, meat, bread, grains (cereal etc) are all acidic so they’re out. If you’re serious to give this a go you will need to eliminate them for a week.
Take 300MG of Gugulipid’s three times a day, morning, evening, night for 1 week.
Take 1/4 of a teaspoon of Baking Soda mixed in half a glass of water in the morning, and at night when you go to bed for 1 full week. When you take it in the morning, mix it with 2-3 Tablespoons of Organic Apple Cider Vinegar.
Drink plenty of tap water throughout the day for an entire week. If you don’t like the taste you can add freshly squeezed organic lemon to it. Lemon has a high alkalizing affect once inside the body.
Eat as many organic fruits and vegetables as you like for the entire week. Remember, tomato’s are only acidic in your stomach but have a highly alkalizing affect in your body. Do not eat any synthetic, diet, grains (bread cereal etc) at all and don’t drink anything other than tap water.
For me this recovery has not been a “hmm, I think I feel better” but astounding. I also feel that my libido is slowly increasing as I have had more sex in the past 3 weeks than ever before. I cannot claim this cured libido even if it seems like it’s slowly working because it’s not cured yet (and this may not cure it), but I as for the brain fog I am positive I’m cured.
Don’t leave any of the protocol out or you may be cheating yourself. If after 1 week of doing this you don’t feel obviously noticeably better look into other remedies.
