Game Over PFS - I'm Recovering

#101

It’s a good question, it’s only an opinion based on this : some supplements need just one dose to have an effect, others need to build up in the system, the longest duration I have seen in a drug or supplement to have an effect is around two months so I like to give things I am unsure around this long so I can be confident I gave it a chance.

Basically I would assume it probably wouldn’t work in one dose, that it might work in 3 weeks and would definitely have worked in 2 months.

generally spoken, Micrbiome diet seems to be the key here. I am just wondering which carbs (apart from Veggies) are allowed on the diet described above. I have severe constipation ever since I tried Saw Palmetto… I tried any diet til this day including Paleo, no carb,low carb, 5 day waterfast, intermittent fasting, etc. but nothing has brought a resolution. The only symptons I have are zero libido with poor penile sensation and skin wrinkles aka light penis. I am 99% sure this will subside once I got back to normal digestion/metabolism.

I could also be lack of serotonin in the guts. 95% of the serotonin in your body is in your guts. If you have too much of it in the guts, you get diarrhea. Too little, you get constipation.

Plus, low serotonin in the guts would also mean low serotonin in the brain which would imbalance the other neurotransmitters like Dopamine, GABA and Tyrosine. This would lead to lack of signal from brain to the groin and lower testosterone.

I wouldn’t be surprised you also have depression, lack of self confidence and apprehension to confront strong individuals (low serotonin symptoms). If Dopamine, GABA and Tyrosine are also affected, you’d get anxiety, problem sleeping, cramps or spasm, brain fog, lack of concentration, lack of motivation, dissatisfaction and be in a general bad mood.

Those are not so difficult to solve, you just need to give your body what it’s missing.

What would you recommend to fix that?

For Serotonin,: Tryptophan 1000 mg morning and 3pm. To make sure you get it, you can also take 5-HTP 100 mg instead. If you take any kind of SSRI or St-John’s Worth or anti-depressive, don’t try.

It has to be taken with 1000 mg of Tyrosine, at the same time.

For Dopamine, it’s L-Dopa (Mucuna Pruriens 95% extract) 375 mg, same time.

They have to be taken on empty stomach, all 3 at the same time. Start with lower doses, increase slowly, if it makes you feel bad, stop.

For GABA, if you don’t take any Anxyolitic medicine, you can try GABA supplements, or Taurine. Phenibut can be taken occasionally. Ashwagandha, Bacopa and Schisandra can be tried. Start with lower doses, increase slowly, if it makes you feel bad, stop. If you take Anxiolytic drugs, don’t try.

I had side effects from LDN and had to stop. It made me incredibly irritable. Insomnia , it.felt like I was on an SSRI. I would not take this so non chelantly. Be cautious when taking meds that alter hormonal activity.

Hey ozeph do you think dopamine and serotonin supplements can increase the orgasm intensity, erections and semen volume? Or are they only work for neruological symptoms? Thx.

#108

Dopamine can increase sex drive. GABA can increase orgasm intensity and for the rest I think herbs like Tribulus Terrestris, Horny Goat Weed and Pine Pollen can improve sexual symptoms…

Erections can be increased by L-Arginine, L-Citrulline and L-Ornithine.

All of these may not work on you or may make you feel worst. Every case is different. Be cautious.

I also took Fin on and off for about 8 years. I had one recovery once where I felt 100% again and this was after I ate kefir like crazy. I was up pissing like 10 times a day. I thought I was getting diabetes but no. I really felt great again. Morning wood was back and I felt happy. Unfortunately only one brand of Kefir worked for me. It was Arla. I bought it in sweden and i don’t live there at the moment. I’ve tried other brands and even made my own but never gotten the same success again. It says Arla contains LA-5® Lactobacillus Acidophilus, BB-12® Bifidobacterium og Lactobacillus Casei F-19®.

So I’m sold on the gut flora thing. I have hope now after feeling recovered once already. I wish it was easy to just transplant back what you needed. I’ll try the raw diet and see what happens.

this is a bit suspicious.

That I would work for Arla? I think its as big of a company as Denone. Im going to sweden next week for vacation. I will eat that Kefir like crazy again and see if I get same effect. If I do Id want that shit transplanted into my gut :slight_smile:

Im in Sweden eating the same Kefir that made me feel recovered last time but not feeling the same effects this time around unfortunately. Im going to try a fecal transplant clinic next. Ive already done fasting, ketogenic diets, home made kefir, probiotics, medidation, HIIT, heavy lifting, tanning my balls (yes i read this would boost testosterone 150%). I tried all kinds of supplements, mr happys stack, nofap, choline inositol, you name it!

I forgot to mention I also took roaccutane before i took finasteride.

Ill keep trying to heal my gut and let you know if i feel any success again.
