    Jobe did you get the grape seed extract from iherb?

    There is another way that you can stop porn addiction, chronic masturbation and recover your sexual health without fighting it with willpower. With the right mindset you won't even relapse. You can learn more about the recovery program here

    According to tcm, your problems would indicate a typical blood deficiency/stagnation and a resulting qi deficiency which is due to close relationship between qi and blood.

    Blood deficiency has the following symptoms:

    when the heart has deficient blood: “Palpitations, dizziness, insomnia, dream disturbed sleep, anxiety, easily startled, poor memory, poor concentration, dull pale complexion, lips are likely to be pale, possibly cold limbs”.

    when the liver has deficient blood: “Numbness in the extremities, tics, tremors, dizziness, blurred vision, floaters, insomnia, dry skin/hair, scanty or lack of menstruation”

    [MOD EDIT: URL Removed]

    Mood is low, when blood is low as the blood contains what chinese call shen, spirit. Heart is also responsible for manufacturing the blood.

    Now, the blood deficiency might be of the several reasons:

    -severe emotional trauma and problems that stagnants the smooth flow of blood, causing blood deficiency overtime

    -physical stagnation

    -after illness, where the body is so weak that it is unable to quickly restore the lost blood from foods. Well prepared versatile and tasty diet should be enough.

    Where blood goes qi follows. I have begun to research more closely the blood, because I do understand now that insufficiency in blood will prevent the energy to accumulate ( not enough blood to carry qi ). Then, depleting even the slightest energy will give severe symptoms due the blood also goes down. Also, loss of blood will also cause loss of qi.

    This is all guessing and only you can know if you have gone through some emotional hell. I can only stress about practicing methods for transforming the negative energy to positive and keeping the spirit up thus strengthening the heart.

    Blueshark, sorry I’m no real expert on curvature and have never come across it so I don’t know what it looks like, I’m only basing it on what I have read on this website.

    This is how I have felt over the past few months, Jobe. Thanks for posting this because when other people described their problems and I had finished reading them I would say to myself I only had a few of the exact same problems as everyone and not ALL the same symptoms, but when I read your post I immediately thought: “Hey! This is just about identical to what I have suffered as well”

    Regarding your post above – 2 months is fine for me, when you have no libido you don’t want to masturbate/have sex – well that’s how I feel.

    I’m just wondering about Tri Methyl Glycine, is it a capsule – powder or liquid…? I’m not fussed either way.

    As for cod liver oil I already take it everyday so that isn’t a problem and I also have Acetyl-L-Carnitine somewhere in the house so I can start this as soon as possible. The organic raw eggs are fine as well I can pick some up next time I am out.

    I usually sleep well and sometimes have REM sleep but I have 5-htp so it isn’t’ a problem. Does the Mucuna Pruriens gradually restore morning erections? .. My morning erections are currently none existent. Jobe, have your morning erections returned after taking this? As in are there any mornings when you do not get erections now?

    Thanks for help Jobe and Blueshark.

    Yinyangparantaja, thanks for posting that, I’m very interested in some of the topics on the website link you provided.

    #12998

    Donn

    stop all supplements and do this

    take cod liver oil, borage oil, 8 egg yolks a day, 3-4oz of morning urine, raw maca, possibly organ supplements( not sure if its worth it though)

    you should see results in 2 weeks

    i had 15 minutes of sex last night. i did have 1 beer before hand.

    Blueshark, yeah, I got the Grape Seed Extract from Iherb, it’s called Activin (Paradise Herbs) and also contains Amla which is a fruit naturally high in Vitamin C.

    David, TMG is in powder form and you can just mix it in a little water and let it dissolve. You have to play with the dosage a bit but try 1000 mg with a meal, like breakfast and go from there, take occassional breaks from it if it feels too stimulating, because this stuff can really give you energy.

    I think Mucuna Pruriens was very helpful for me in attaining morning erections, absolutely. That’s the herb I first used that really started helping me see some success (I added 5htp to stop dopamine converting into adrenaline). Every herb which increased testosterone has been very helpful to me, and I find now that I need them less and less. The ones that I think are the best are Tongkat Ali, Mucuna Pruriens, and Horny Goat Weed. Tongkat Ali I think boosts testosterone the most, Mucuna Pruriens increases dopamine which then boosts testosterone and is probably cheaper than tongkat ali, Horny Goat Weed is probably good too if you take enough of it. It is a mild PDE 5 inhibitor the same as Viagra (this herb might be best for increasing the strength of erections), plus it reduces cortisol (stress hormones), and increases testosterone but not as much as the others, not certain about that though. In order to get an effective dose I heard you need to take 250 mg of icariin, so for a standardized extract of Horny Goat Weed at 10% you’d need about 2500 mg of the extract, most preparations don’t contain enough because often it is mixed with many other herbs. I’m still looking for an effective high dosage extract of Horny Goat Weed (preferably liquid). Another dopamine enhancing herb is the Egyptian Blue Lotus which also contains a compound similar to apomorphine (found in the erectile dysfunction drug Uprima which is only slighly less effective than viagra). Most of these herbs are Yang in nature so to sort of balance things out I usually take Fo Ti which is Yin and has been said to also help with sexual exhaustion. I like to experiment with different herbs and combinations, but I think I’m going to focus now more on finding a strong liquid form of Horny Goat Weed.

    Anyways, David if you felt like I did then you might have low dopamine and/or testosterone, and you might want to consider trying some of those testosterone boosting herbs as these really helped me, and maybe it can help you. Yeah, living with low testosterone was pretty awful.

    To answer your question, I almost always wake up with morning erections now (perhaps 95% of the time), whether I’m taking those herbs or not. Oh yeah, and you’re welcome .

    Max, I’ve read a little about Urine Therapy and frankly sounds disgusting, but if it works…then I won’t say nothing more, and hope you and others find success with it. Unless, I suddenly take a turn for the worse I probably won’t be trying that out, but I am interested to hear if others are getting similar results as yours. I have noticed that Maca caused me to have really bad premature ejaculation and I’ve also read this from an authoritative source stating that unless your methionine levels are high enough, then the histidine in Maca can cause PE, otherwise it’s a great superfood and sexual enhancer.

    Update:

    I haven’t had a chance to buy the suggested supplements yet due to college/spending time with family over the Christmas period.

    I have arranged for a urology test early next year to test my urinary tracts.

    My last appointment to see my psychologist is coming up early next year as well, and I aim to take with me printed reading material regarding our sexual dysfunction findings. I have tried to explain to her in past appointments but she always rules them out, so I think evidence is required this time.

    Regarding symptoms they are all the same as usual, but I have noticed that I am a very self-conscious person due to my sexual dysfunction. This is mainly due to the constant bags under my eyes and my hair thinning/loss, which I am constantly worried about.

    I have also noticed that I am experiencing persistent feelings of sadness, anxiety, isolation, disturbances in sleep and appetite, fatigue and loss of interest in daily activities, problems concentrating, loneliness, shyness and social anxiety. These were all apparent months and months ago but I do not think I have mentioned them as of yet.

    I mainly believe my sadness is down to the surrounding area near to where I live and the people.

    For example, at my new college, in some of my classes, the pupils are being predicted bad grades. This is no surprise as they are always messing on in lessons and talking back at the teachers/doing little work as possible, they are always drinking alcohol, smoking, using disgusting language, behaving crudely, bullying smarter pupils, dressing in tracksuits, and so on. So basically just anti-social behaviour. This is not a problem as I don’t care what they do – it’s up to them, but when I have to be with them everyday it is revolting. I am not saying I am a super high intelligent being, but surely they must realise that this is not the path to a better life.

    This conflicts with the way I want to live and is what I believe to be the main grounds of my depression. I would like to believe I am maturing at a fast rate. My general interests include: Reading, foreign culture, movies, music, keeping active, finding new food, visiting historical cities/landmarks and travelling.

    I do not take drugs, I do not smoke and I do not drink alcohol. Call me a goody-two shoes but it is clearly the path to a better life.

    #13001

    Ernesto

    David,

    Since she is a psycologist, download the article on the following link that I uploaded. It is from a medical journal and shows that sexual exhaustion exists.

    [MOD EDIT: URL Removed]

    However, if she doesn’t know about it, she won’t know what to do anyway. But it will still be nice to show her that it exists and that it is not in your. head.

    I wouldn’t take any prescription anti-depressants either. Look into the side affects. Not good, and they are very hard to get off. When I recovered the 1st time, my mood and social anxiety went away and I wasn’t depressed at all (see my log for details)

    I’ll bet the urology will show nothing either.

    #13002

    Dusty

    Thanks for that document, Frank. I’ll hopefully remember to take it with me.

    Yes, that seems to be the case with me at the moment. My mood – it’s usually good, but once every few days I will get depressed.

    I just wish I didn’t keep getting bags under my eyes EVERY day, as well as me constantly loosing my hair as it thins out. My appearance is everything to me at my age, I’ve become significantly more self-concious because of these problems and it’s constantly damaging my already low self-confidence.

    #13003

    Isaac

    whats your situation like David at the moment

    #13004

    Anibal

    David,

    I think becoming more self-conscious is natures way to ‘force’ one to notice there is something going on and this way encourage research and doing the best to get better.

    It is well known, that people with various diseases become more self-conscious and they start to thing all the good and bad things in their live and all these moral issues. Also, I think in everyones youth there is phase where one will contradict with everything and get depressed. The good point is, that once you start to get better, you still know all the wisdom you did acquire while you were having bad times and you will feel kind of enlightened having experienced all the suffering.

    Take it easy, eat tasty and healthy foods, try not to stress too much, keep healthy ejaculation frequency ( keep longer if it makes you clearly bad ) and try not to do anything that makes you feel worse.

    #13005

    Son

    Thankyou. Can I ask how often one should regulate ejaculation frequency? I’m confused because I’ve read it should be every two months but I’ve also read that it should be every two weeks?

    #13006

    Harris

    Nothing has changed to be honest. I’m know better than I was when I first noticed I had all these problems. If anything I’ve become worse over the months. I don’t get morning erections at all. I still have eye floaters, ringing in my ears, bags under my eyes, my hair is constantly thinning – I haven’t had a haircut in months because my hair just grows back and then thins out and so on.

    I still experience all the feelings I described on the previous page. My parasympathetic nerve constantly feels week – I don’t know how I can describe what I feel to you but I will try: The ‘bio-electric’ pulses you receive in your penis when you see a girl who you like are significantly weaker – I am talking about just before you receive an erection, just before the blood rushes into your penis. Can anybody confirm they can understand this?

    #13007

    Earnest

    David

    I know what you mean. I didn’t have this for a couple years. I had them last weekend after taking some adrenal supplements for a few weeks and Tongkat Ali for a few days. I would just look at my wife and my penis would tingle. I slipped back a little but still better than I was.

    #13008

    Aurelio

    Update:

    I have nothing much to say really apart from everything is the same still. I just thought some of you may have wondered where I was. I am contemplating whether or not to get a haircut (I haven’t had one since my hair started thinning/falling out and re-growing within a few days (sort of like a cycle)) because if it is cut shorter then I don’t know whether or not it will grow back to the length it is at the moment.

    I aim to pick up a few supplements soon, (I haven’t had chance due to my exams) most of which being mentioned in this thread specifically recommended and also around the site. I have my urology test booked for sometime in early March and I aim to go back to see my GP after he recommended me to a psychologist, from whom I was discharged as she deemed there wasn’t a lot wrong with me – surprise, surprise.

    The dizziness/fogginess in my head I was experiencing has calmed down, although I do plan to raise the issue when I meet my GP.

    #13009

    Alex

    is it possible that you can do any sort of tests.

    #13010

    Dustin

    I will certainly try to get some tests done in the near future, so yes.

    I picked up some ZMA, Wheat Germ liquid, Acetyl-L-Carnitine and some Grape Seed Extract today.

    Can anyone recommend how and when I should take them?

    On the ZMA bottle it says I should take the pills 10-20 minutes before bedtime and also on an empty stomach. Will it make a difference if I don’t take them close to bedtime?

    #13011

    Normand

    David Follow the directions on all the bottles. For the ZMA 30-60 minutes before bed seems to be good. Why cant you take them close to bedtime?

    #13012

    Antonio

    I didn’t say I couldn’t take them close to bedtime. I was just wondering about any experiences people have had when taking them in the day or in the night .

    #13013

    Theron

    zma best before nite.. because of good sleep

    have taken zma during day also (30 mg zing) and it made me drowsy cuz of the magnesium

    currently i bought a bottle of 60 tabs zinc picolinate 25 mg tabs for 5 euro.. thought id test it

    took one before sleep instead of zma.. woke up with a better boner in the morning than zma.. this stuff truly rocks

    #13014

    Homer

    I’ve been trying to tell you guys Zinc Picolinate rocks but take it in high doses at first, from 60-90 mg per day, 2 in the morning, 2 in the day and 2 in the evening. Try this for a period of at least 4-5 weeks.

    My erections went from firm to absolute boners of steel, literally like I’ve got a solid bone in there, no give or bend at all.

    #13015

    Manual

    Found this article.

    [MOD EDIT: URL Removed] (gotta love the name of this website!)

    Good info on zinc at the bottom of the article. Makes complete sense.

    I’ve been taking 90mg of zinc picolinate a day for the past two weeks, along with saw palmetto and prostate supplements, and having morning boners. Nothing like the steel rods that Stinger is having but will get there in time with keeping good, balanced nutrients. It just takes time for the body to heal.

    Now I will continue taking this dosage ONLY for another week or two, then back down to the recommended daily allowance as I don’t want to get overdose on something good.

    Please read section,”What is the health risk of too much zinc?” in the following link. More good info.

    #13016

    Tyrone

    just curious speedlimit25 aboutt he prostate supplements you’re using

    #13017

    Kurt

    For prostate, according to directions, I take 2 capsules of a product by Enzymatic Therapy called Healthy Cells PROSTATE (tablet form). It has the following ingredients:

    Calcium 25mg

    Selenium 200mcg

    Calcium D-glucarate 200mg

    Broccoli Floret and Stalk Concentrate (sulforaphane) 125 mg

    Green Tea Leaf Extract (decaf – contains 70% polyphenols) 50mg

    Maitake Mushrooms 50mg

    Maitake Mushroom Extract (30% pure D-fraction) 5mg

    Lycopene 2.5mg

    I take 2 tablets of this a day, along with zinc picolinate and saw palmetto. The zinc pic I break up three times a day (30mg X 3 = 90mg) and 3 saw palmetto capsules (Nature’s Way brand 585mg)

    morning – 1 prostate, 1 zinc pic, 1 saw palm

    afternoon – 1 prostate, 1 zinc pic, 1 saw palm

    evening – 1 zinc pic, 1 saw palm

    I had read an article about these EXACT ingredients for healing prostate issues and found this brand at the Vitamin Shoppe. I take other vitamins and supplements too and eat a healthy diet which includes organic peanut butter and organic pumpkin seeds (great for prostate and testes). Also, about 4 times a day, I drink green tea with a squirt or two of organic lemon or lime juice (great to cleanse the kidneys) and pour some organic Grade B maple syrup to sweeten. Organic maple syrup is loaded with vitamins.

    If you have more questions on what else I take or do, don’t hestitate to ask Blueshark. Love to help out.

    Today I feel great!!! No pain or discomfort. Feel normal “down in thar!”

    #13018

    Duncan

    Update:

    Hello, I’m still here if any of you are wondering what happened to me.

    There isn’t much to tell you really – I still experience all my previous symptoms (it’s been just over a year now since I’ve been exhausted) which include: eye floaters, fluctuating penis size, hair thinning/loss, dark circles under eyes, tinnitus and so on and so on.

    I recently visited my local hospital for a urology test; nothing could be determined there and then so I now have an appointment for a flow test on the 20th of this month, I will update you all on the results of that.

    #13019

    Odell

    David How many different types of tests are there?

    #13020

    Guillermo

    I assume you mean urology tests? I don’t really know, but here’s a list of urology procedures and tests anyway: [MOD EDIT: URL Removed]

    Regarding my flow test; everything was fine. The nurse informed me that my flow was great and she said a lot of people who get tested produce results at an inferior level compared to my results.

    I’ve been taking the liquid version of ‘eye q’ now for quite some time: [MOD EDIT: URL Removed]

    It contains marine fish oil and virgin evening primrose oil, which is formulated to maintain eye and brain function: [MOD EDIT: URL Removed]

    My libido continues to be non existent, I am still experiencing hair thinning/loss and I do not experience morning erections at all. Just for any new readers, I am 18 years old and have been experiencing these symptoms for over a year now.

    #13021

    Keith

    Okay, so my exams are over now – I just hope this time the outcome of them do not result in my college rejecting me for the final year as my previous one did. It feels embarrassing in way to have to study with students who are a year below me, while my friends embark on adventures all around the country to different universities.

    I’m regulating my ejaculation frequency to about once a week now (I could probably go for as long as want due to my non-existent libido and me never feeling horny). My morning erections are also still non-existent. My hair loss has actually slightly improved, mainly in the sense that not a lot comes out now when I wash my hair.

    Feel free to come in and have a chat about any similar symptoms you may be experiencing.

    #13022

    Salvatore

    Update:

    I’m so relieved! I have passed my exams and can finally move onto the second year course. My friends are all getting ready to move to their respective universities around the country now. I just wish I hadn’t messed up at my previous school because if I hadn’t then I would be joining them in moving.

    The symptoms I am currently experiencing are exactly the same as always. The dark circles under my eyes are really getting to me in the sense that I am really self-conscious, especially concerning my appearance and how I look generally. I understand most people don’t care about what people look like, but as a teenager, looks and appearance are just about everything if I want to find love/be respected. Can anyone suggest anything to rid myself of them? Are they due to adrenal fatigue? I currently use Coenzyme Q10 cream to relieve puffiness and dark circles but it doesn’t really do a lot.

    I am thinking about visiting my GP and letting him know that I’ve tried going to bed early/drinking lots of water/getting lots of exercise, but all are to no avail and then seeing what he has to say.

    Any advice is welcome as usual.

    #13023

    have you done any blood tests as of yet?

    you can go to a dermatologist for the eye circles.

    David, I’m sorry to hear your symptoms are so severe. Really I sympathize. I’m glad to hear you have stopped masterbating, I think you should continue this and not worry so much about seminal stones or the ducts or anything like that. I stated in another message string that I was nearly celibate for many months and it didn’t hurt me, in fact I think it was essential to recovery.

    Since you are not able to get alot of supplements could you tell us what foods or supplements you can get?..and then maybe we can go from there.

    Just to recap what worked for me:

    1. Ejaculating only once every two months and no porn (or very little).

    2. Raw Egg Yolks and Glandulars.

    3. Nuts (Honey-Pistachio [I think the honey partially breaks down the pistachio and makes it easier to digest…just a thought] and Pumkin seeds).

    4. Tongkat Ali LJ100 (200 mg in the morning on an empty stomach, 2 weeks on, 1 week off).

    5. Fish Oil and Borage Oil with meals, then Mucuna Pruriens and 5 htp before sleep.

    6. Eat as healthy as possible.

    7. Exercise (squats stimulate testosterone) and sleep well.

    8. Massages.

    Good luck man!

    jobe, what supplements are still currently talking and whats your new ejaculation frequency after your recovery?

    #13028

    Nicholas

    David,

    You are doing a lot of good stuff. But you really shouldn’t be having ANY caffiene. It stimulates the nervous system and it is hard on the adrenal glands

    I like to watch the news as well. But this can also cause stress and stimulate the nervous system / adrenals. Take a couple of days off each week and have news free days.

    #13029

    Dylan

    Everything I listed above is exactly what I still follow. Sure, I feel recovered and I can ejaculate without problems, but I’m not about to go back to the way things were. I’ve had this problem nearly 10 years and finally my sexual function is strong enough that I can have sex, so obviously what I’m doing is working for me and I’m not about to just stop. At this time, I only ejaculate the bare minimum ( Every one to two months, even though I get the urge to do so more often, I resist it), instead I’m going to do what I feel I should have done in the first place before this problem and get into a more committed relationship (instead of just jerking off and sleeping around), I’m not saying everyone should follow suit, that’s for each of you to decide, but this is what makes sense for me to do. I’d prefer not to masterbate ever again.

    #13030

    Derick

    I do agree with , it is a little miracle itself to get the exhaustion symptoms away and live a healthy life. Masturbation has grown so evil in my eyes that I´ve trying to decrease it as much as possible. I have done experiments with the frequency but the general feeling has been that this practice of masturbation and porn watching should be able to stop completely. I manage to do the deer exercise successfully ( I do it once a week, when little energy has built up ) and practicing it has been a great help reducing the masturbation frequency. I´ve been masturbating on the following day of doing deer exercise ( which should immediately reduce ejaculation urgency through mini-orgasms ) and my semen has been clear and watery so it is working emptying the prostate and semen upwards inside the body.

    Risking everything ( our lives ) for the sake of masturbating in front of computer 15 minutes and then feeling the loss of energy afterwards and the frustration accompanied with it, is terrible.

    I´ve done my masturbations and over-ejaculations when I was teenager and young adult, now I have to built the reservoir back and pay the price. I have no bad symptoms anymore but I still feel better, more energized and stronger in all ways when more days have passed since last masturbation / ejaculation. Thats why I always say that there is no point for trying to recover for just be able to over-masturbate / over-ejaculate again.

    #13031

    Rick

    Ravens – I haven’t masturbated in a few weeks, if I ever do it’s only because I’m either bored or(I’m sure you all know by now I have no desire for it) when I read on here about seminal stones but according to Jobe that is nonsense.

    Jobe – I am able to pick up most supplements off this website from my local shop – [MOD EDIT: URL Removed]

    I can’t get access to Alpha GPC and I still don’t really know what Raw supplements are.

    Aside from this, I’ve noticed whenever I get a semi-erection my penis sticks out really solid at 45 degrees – as opposed to it just getting thicker and longer before my dysfunction.

    #13032

    Eusebio

    Just a little update:

    When I said above about my penis not hanging down properly is a little weird to me. I don’t know if this is bad curvature or what?

    My hair is never greasy too. My scalp is just constantly dry, so when I try to massage it it hurts rather than relieves. Although when I wash my hair in the shower or where ever and I massage my scalp that really does feel good so I would recommend everyone to do this when you wash your hair next.

    Hair thinning and all usual symptoms are occurring still. My hair continues to grow but when I wash it it just thins out and as I’ve said before I haven’t needed a haircut in ages. Now I know this isn’t a problem as it saves me money but I would just like it to be normal. We take things for granted and we only see how valuable they are too us when they are taken away.

    Also is ejaculating every two weeks bad for me?

    Could an Admin put this in the log file section please?

    #13033

    Barton

    i have a curvature which has improved by 30% in the last 6 months. but can you be a little bit more clear with your description about it.

    #13034

    Thanh

    Hi David,

    Once every two weeks? Try once every two months, longer if you can. Seriously, It won’t hurt you. Seminal stones are extremely rare, waiting several months will only give you more time to recover. I think this is essential to recovery, not optional.

    As far as supplements go, that depends on your financial situation and what you have available. I checked out that website and it seems to have many things you might need.

    I’d say try ZMA (Zinc and Magnesium combo) to increase testosterone and replenish the zinc you’ve lost from excess ejaculation, you lose alot of this mineral from ejaculating. Eat more seafoods if you can, Oysters especially are high in this mineral.

    For Vitamin E stay away from regular supplements (unless you can get Unique E) and instead take Wheat Germ Capsules or Liquid for Vitamin E (you want to avoid soy products which can harm testicular function and most Vitamin E supplements are made from Soy).

    Get some Tri Methyl Glycine (1500 mg with breakfast) if you can find some, this is a great supplement in my opinion which increases (indirectly) Acetylcholine, Serotonin, Dopamine, and SAMe. This could help with depression, premature ejaculation, fatigue, kidney health, liver, and erections…. and, at least here in the United States, doesn’t cost that much. It definetly helped me with depression.

    Fish Oil or Cod Liver Oil too, you can read up on these from your store’s website, or look around here on the forum.

    For the peyronies or bending of the penis, Acetyl-L-Carnitine as Blueshark mentions, also Serrapeptase and Nattokinase have been used for this condition as well, but it would probably be easier for you to just get Acetyl-L-Carnitine. These probably will help increase blood flow too to increase erection strength, Vitamin E also helps with this as it is a vasodilator. If you have thick blue veins and spider veins, try some Grape Seed Extract (100 to 200 mg). The veins keep the blood from escaping during an erection, so it’s important they are in good shape.

    The raw stuff we mentioned is merely different animal foods that you eat without cooking, they’re not really “supplements”. If you have organic eggs available to you, just eat the egg yolk but without cooking them…might sound disgusting but you can always mix them in something more pleasant like juice if you want, this provides choline which also turns into acetylcholine, and is overall very nutritious. If you can get glandulars it would be helpful but It seems you are limited in what is available to you.

    The supplements and abstaining from ejaculation are a big part of this, but you also need to take care of yourself, make sure you get enough sleep (if having trouble maybe 5 Htp and Mucuna Pruriens might be a good choice, this combo gave me morning erections very often and helped me sleep, when taken right before sleep), don’t beat yourself up and concentrate on how bad things are, focus on positive things as much as you can. Ever considered Yoga and Meditation?

    I tried to keep this simple, and I hope this helps. Good luck David, and keep us posted on how things are going.

    According to tcm, your problems would indicate a typical blood deficiency/stagnation and a resulting qi deficiency which is due to close relationship between qi and blood.

    Blood deficiency has the following symptoms:

    when the heart has deficient blood: “Palpitations, dizziness, insomnia, dream disturbed sleep, anxiety, easily startled, poor memory, poor concentration, dull pale complexion, lips are likely to be pale, possibly cold limbs”.

    when the liver has deficient blood: “Numbness in the extremities, tics, tremors, dizziness, blurred vision, floaters, insomnia, dry skin/hair, scanty or lack of menstruation”

    [MOD EDIT: URL Removed]

    Mood is low, when blood is low as the blood contains what chinese call shen, spirit. Heart is also responsible for manufacturing the blood.

    Now, the blood deficiency might be of the several reasons:

    -severe emotional trauma and problems that stagnants the smooth flow of blood, causing blood deficiency overtime

    -physical stagnation

    -after illness, where the body is so weak that it is unable to quickly restore the lost blood from foods. Well prepared versatile and tasty diet should be enough.

    Where blood goes qi follows. I have begun to research more closely the blood, because I do understand now that insufficiency in blood will prevent the energy to accumulate ( not enough blood to carry qi ). Then, depleting even the slightest energy will give severe symptoms due the blood also goes down. Also, loss of blood will also cause loss of qi.

    This is all guessing and only you can know if you have gone through some emotional hell. I can only stress about practicing methods for transforming the negative energy to positive and keeping the spirit up thus strengthening the heart.

    Blueshark, sorry I’m no real expert on curvature and have never come across it so I don’t know what it looks like, I’m only basing it on what I have read on this website.

    This is how I have felt over the past few months, Jobe. Thanks for posting this because when other people described their problems and I had finished reading them I would say to myself I only had a few of the exact same problems as everyone and not ALL the same symptoms, but when I read your post I immediately thought: “Hey! This is just about identical to what I have suffered as well”

    Regarding your post above – 2 months is fine for me, when you have no libido you don’t want to masturbate/have sex – well that’s how I feel.

    I’m just wondering about Tri Methyl Glycine, is it a capsule – powder or liquid…? I’m not fussed either way.

    As for cod liver oil I already take it everyday so that isn’t a problem and I also have Acetyl-L-Carnitine somewhere in the house so I can start this as soon as possible. The organic raw eggs are fine as well I can pick some up next time I am out.

    I usually sleep well and sometimes have REM sleep but I have 5-htp so it isn’t’ a problem. Does the Mucuna Pruriens gradually restore morning erections? .. My morning erections are currently none existent. Jobe, have your morning erections returned after taking this? As in are there any mornings when you do not get erections now?

    Thanks for help Jobe and Blueshark.

    Yinyangparantaja, thanks for posting that, I’m very interested in some of the topics on the website link you provided.

    stop all supplements and do this

    take cod liver oil, borage oil, 8 egg yolks a day, 3-4oz of morning urine, raw maca, possibly organ supplements( not sure if its worth it though)

    you should see results in 2 weeks

    i had 15 minutes of sex last night. i did have 1 beer before hand.

    Blueshark, yeah, I got the Grape Seed Extract from Iherb, it’s called Activin (Paradise Herbs) and also contains Amla which is a fruit naturally high in Vitamin C.

    David, TMG is in powder form and you can just mix it in a little water and let it dissolve. You have to play with the dosage a bit but try 1000 mg with a meal, like breakfast and go from there, take occassional breaks from it if it feels too stimulating, because this stuff can really give you energy.

    I think Mucuna Pruriens was very helpful for me in attaining morning erections, absolutely. That’s the herb I first used that really started helping me see some success (I added 5htp to stop dopamine converting into adrenaline). Every herb which increased testosterone has been very helpful to me, and I find now that I need them less and less. The ones that I think are the best are Tongkat Ali, Mucuna Pruriens, and Horny Goat Weed. Tongkat Ali I think boosts testosterone the most, Mucuna Pruriens increases dopamine which then boosts testosterone and is probably cheaper than tongkat ali, Horny Goat Weed is probably good too if you take enough of it. It is a mild PDE 5 inhibitor the same as Viagra (this herb might be best for increasing the strength of erections), plus it reduces cortisol (stress hormones), and increases testosterone but not as much as the others, not certain about that though. In order to get an effective dose I heard you need to take 250 mg of icariin, so for a standardized extract of Horny Goat Weed at 10% you’d need about 2500 mg of the extract, most preparations don’t contain enough because often it is mixed with many other herbs. I’m still looking for an effective high dosage extract of Horny Goat Weed (preferably liquid). Another dopamine enhancing herb is the Egyptian Blue Lotus which also contains a compound similar to apomorphine (found in the erectile dysfunction drug Uprima which is only slighly less effective than viagra). Most of these herbs are Yang in nature so to sort of balance things out I usually take Fo Ti which is Yin and has been said to also help with sexual exhaustion. I like to experiment with different herbs and combinations, but I think I’m going to focus now more on finding a strong liquid form of Horny Goat Weed.

    Anyways, David if you felt like I did then you might have low dopamine and/or testosterone, and you might want to consider trying some of those testosterone boosting herbs as these really helped me, and maybe it can help you. Yeah, living with low testosterone was pretty awful.

    To answer your question, I almost always wake up with morning erections now (perhaps 95% of the time), whether I’m taking those herbs or not. Oh yeah, and you’re welcome .

    Max, I’ve read a little about Urine Therapy and frankly sounds disgusting, but if it works…then I won’t say nothing more, and hope you and others find success with it. Unless, I suddenly take a turn for the worse I probably won’t be trying that out, but I am interested to hear if others are getting similar results as yours. I have noticed that Maca caused me to have really bad premature ejaculation and I’ve also read this from an authoritative source stating that unless your methionine levels are high enough, then the histidine in Maca can cause PE, otherwise it’s a great superfood and sexual enhancer.

    Update:

    I haven’t had a chance to buy the suggested supplements yet due to college/spending time with family over the Christmas period.

    I have arranged for a urology test early next year to test my urinary tracts.

    My last appointment to see my psychologist is coming up early next year as well, and I aim to take with me printed reading material regarding our sexual dysfunction findings. I have tried to explain to her in past appointments but she always rules them out, so I think evidence is required this time.

    Regarding symptoms they are all the same as usual, but I have noticed that I am a very self-conscious person due to my sexual dysfunction. This is mainly due to the constant bags under my eyes and my hair thinning/loss, which I am constantly worried about.

    I have also noticed that I am experiencing persistent feelings of sadness, anxiety, isolation, disturbances in sleep and appetite, fatigue and loss of interest in daily activities, problems concentrating, loneliness, shyness and social anxiety. These were all apparent months and months ago but I do not think I have mentioned them as of yet.

    I mainly believe my sadness is down to the surrounding area near to where I live and the people.

    For example, at my new college, in some of my classes, the pupils are being predicted bad grades. This is no surprise as they are always messing on in lessons and talking back at the teachers/doing little work as possible, they are always drinking alcohol, smoking, using disgusting language, behaving crudely, bullying smarter pupils, dressing in tracksuits, and so on. So basically just anti-social behaviour. This is not a problem as I don’t care what they do – it’s up to them, but when I have to be with them everyday it is revolting. I am not saying I am a super high intelligent being, but surely they must realise that this is not the path to a better life.

    This conflicts with the way I want to live and is what I believe to be the main grounds of my depression. I would like to believe I am maturing at a fast rate. My general interests include: Reading, foreign culture, movies, music, keeping active, finding new food, visiting historical cities/landmarks and travelling.

    I do not take drugs, I do not smoke and I do not drink alcohol. Call me a goody-two shoes but it is clearly the path to a better life.

    David,

    Since she is a psycologist, download the article on the following link that I uploaded. It is from a medical journal and shows that sexual exhaustion exists.

    [MOD EDIT: URL Removed]

    However, if she doesn’t know about it, she won’t know what to do anyway. But it will still be nice to show her that it exists and that it is not in your. head.

    I wouldn’t take any prescription anti-depressants either. Look into the side affects. Not good, and they are very hard to get off. When I recovered the 1st time, my mood and social anxiety went away and I wasn’t depressed at all (see my log for details)

    I’ll bet the urology will show nothing either.

    Tad

    Thanks for that document, Frank. I’ll hopefully remember to take it with me.

    Yes, that seems to be the case with me at the moment. My mood – it’s usually good, but once every few days I will get depressed.

    I just wish I didn’t keep getting bags under my eyes EVERY day, as well as me constantly loosing my hair as it thins out. My appearance is everything to me at my age, I’ve become significantly more self-concious because of these problems and it’s constantly damaging my already low self-confidence.

    whats your situation like David at the moment

    David,

    I think becoming more self-conscious is natures way to ‘force’ one to notice there is something going on and this way encourage research and doing the best to get better.

    It is well known, that people with various diseases become more self-conscious and they start to thing all the good and bad things in their live and all these moral issues. Also, I think in everyones youth there is phase where one will contradict with everything and get depressed. The good point is, that once you start to get better, you still know all the wisdom you did acquire while you were having bad times and you will feel kind of enlightened having experienced all the suffering.

    Take it easy, eat tasty and healthy foods, try not to stress too much, keep healthy ejaculation frequency ( keep longer if it makes you clearly bad ) and try not to do anything that makes you feel worse.
