I’m copying below what I wrote to another member in a private message. I never come on this forum anymore because I feel people go into many unscientific directions, and its as if some people enjoy being a victim of Propecia. I haven’t been on here in like 5-6 years maybe.
I think all “PFSers” have low grade chronic infections that mostly stems from their guts…the colon microbiome…aka your gut microbes. Fix your gut microbes, remove pathogens and toxins, and the body fixes itself. I have expert level knowledge regarding this stuff and I’m even planning on writing a book because there is lots of b.s. health info on the internet and what you read in a medical paper is very different than what happens in real life. The body is a very complex system. Don’t expect to pop a few pills and get better. Message below:
At my best, I am pretty damn close to perfect…only needed 6 hours of sleep, woke up refreshed. Solid erections, great vision, great digestion, great mood/personality, great energy, could concentrate on my work. At worst I was suicidal with a wide array of symptoms. Recovery is very possible.
Regarding epigentic changes, things like butyrate, which are made by your gut microbes can change your genetic expression (for the better). Butyrate has even been shown to help reduce addiction…I think in mouse models. Taking butyrate orally is not the same as your gut microbes making it themselves.
Fixing your gut is really hard, and it depends where you’re starting from…like how bad your gut is to begin with. Due to really bad medical advice, my health got much, much worse than the initial PFS I had, and I went through hell trying to figure it out…I still make a lot of mistakes and have to fix them.
Pay close attention to your poops…I don’t care if this is TMI, you need to know…they have to be 1 piece, smooth, banana or snake like, sinkers not floaters, dark brown, no undigested food in it, and barely anything on the toilet paper when you wipe…like only a thin streak. You can still have quality poops and have health issues, but not the other way around. Poor quality poops means “toxins” are re-circulating back into your blood stream from your colon (aka leaky gut). I CANNOT STRESS THIS ENOUGH! Get a chopstick or a plastic fork and examine your bowel movements everyday.
Some basic advice:
Very low carb diet, except for cooked and then cooled beans (in fridge for 24 hours, creates RS3). Black beans are probably best. They must be relatively firm to resist digestion by you so they get to your colon relatively undigested.
Roasted garlic and raw dairy plus the beans are all prebiotic…meaning they feed good gut bacteria. Try to avoid red meat as best as you can…its horrible for your gut microbes. High blood sugar means a suppressed immune system, which means pathogens can flourish.
Checkout Chlorine Dioxide (CD aka MMS) in a book by Kerri Rivera for Autistic Kids…its not scientific but strongly points you in the right direction. CD/MMS can hurt you if you don’t dilute it. It is an oxidative therapy. This book should be available for free as a PDF somewhere on the internet.
Also check out a website called TheSupermanDiet.com talks about the use of suppositories and detoxing heavy metals. I wouldn’t pay much attention to the diet section though. Be very careful with suppositories and CD enemas, you can really !@#$ yourself up.
Learn to make home made milk kefir, or water kefir, sauerkraut, kombucha…the store bought stuff is garbage and weak. Water and milk kefir are stupidly easy to make. It’s intimidating at first, but afterwards its a piece of cake.
Dark leafy green smoothies (not just juice) are anti-inflammatory and reduce TNF-a. Maybe throw in some turmeric root and some type of fat (raw milk?) or oil to buffer the yellowing effect of the turmeric. No berries or carbs in your smoothies. Think Kale/Spinach.
Fish oil and Flax Oil are great. Don’t combine fats with carbs.
Try to do some cardio as this moves your lymphatics and stimulates your immune system. Maybe 20-30 min a day…like a brisk/fast walk at least.
Basic liver flushes (castor oil) can help. No liver flushes with lots of apple juice…that’s just b.s. and unnecessary sugar. If you do an olive oil /grapefruit juice liver flush and see green stones, those are not real stones, its just conjugated bile and olive oil…dont’ pay attention to that crap.
If you get bloating after meals, this could mean you have parasites. They’re very common and testing for them is horrendous…lots of false negatives.
Best probiotics I feel are VSL3, ElixaProbiotic, and Miyarisan. Probiotics will not stick around in an inflammed gut where a “war” is going on…the same way you don’t want to go live in Syria/Yemen right now and would rather live in Hawaii. You also need to make room in/on your colon wall for the probiotics to colonize otherwise you will just poop them out. I knew this for 2-3 years, but it was only recently discovered in a lab setting.
If you do things like a CD enema, or essential oil suppository, make sure you take a lot of probiotics afterwards or you will pay the price for it. This does depend on how bad off you are to begin with. No essential oil suppositories before going to sleep as you don’t want it to go and kill all of your good microbes as you’re laying down. Good dosage for a probiotic is like 250+ billion CFU… a VSL3 Sachet is 450 billion. A VSL3 pill is 125 billion. You also need to learn how to eliminate biofilms…CD works great for that.
Also, include nuts and seeds into your diet. Pumpkin Seeds, Walnuts, and Pecans are best. These contain berberine and tannins which are anti-microbial. Raw is best.
Eliminating pathogens and removing toxins are more important than any dietary intervention that you do. Pathogens are toxin factories!
No beef, no gluten, low carb!
Do cardio, basic liver flush (like once a week), NAC enema, Raw Pumpkin Seeds, Heavy on the dark leafy green smoothies, and bentonite clay internally are the things that helped me the most. Killing parasites is much harder than manipulating the microbiome. If you have parasites, you’re kinda screwed.
I’m still learning more stuff as I go along and constantly refining my protocol. My biggest challenge has been parasites.
I really do want all of you to get better, but I’m not going to stick around here and argue. I might not come back to answer questions either. The few people I knew on this forum in the past always went in unscientific directions and they wouldn’t realize it. I think what’s wrong is what’s living inside of your bodies. Your body is just shifting resources and adapting to the mess/disaster inside of you. Sexual function is not critical to survival when you have pathogens tearing your body apart…understand? Sexual function will probably be the first thing to go when you become ill.
