    If I take say a 5ar inhibitor I can feel better yeah for sure. If i take something which can increase 5ar activity (like creatine) it makes me worse. This is pretty common in PFS, the optimizing T/DHT approach doesn't work in PFS in my research and often makes guys worse. Alot of the things guys do in order to optimize T/DHT, are having other beneficial effects on the body, so it may not be directly the increase of T/DHT which help guys recover. Anyway just food for thought.

    Hey Pablo this is a quote from the Post Finasteride Syndrome Foundation:

    'A group of Italian researchers gave finasteride to rats and noticed that the number of androgen receptors in their brains went up. Moreover, the effects persisted long after the drug had been discontinued… [T]hey then called in men with PFS, took skin from the penis and found that the density of androgen receptors in men with PFS was about twice that of those without. Now, remember the idea of the testosterone bell curve and damping effects (little testosterone, little growth, more testosterone, more growth, even more testosterone, reduced growth)? I think this is what we are seeing here. With a greater concentration of receptors, the organ becomes more sensitive to testosterone and at a certain point, paradoxically, that sensitivity may shut down.

    But fortunately I find Sun in the AM and PM, along with cold is helping. I did a acouple of ice baths for about an hour each. And the effect has been pretty powerful, towards the end I start to feel euphoric, I start to feel again. PFS for me has cause extreme anhedonia the cold is helping with that. As well as sauna use. The androgen receptor is regulated by sirt1, along with HDAC enzymes.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Androgen_receptor

    'The AR acetylation site is a key target of NAD-dependent and TSA-dependent histone deacetylases [27] and long non coding RNA.[28]' 'NAD dependent histone deacetylase' is referring to sirt1.

    And as I understand it cold can powerfully activate sirt1.

    Thanks!

    To be honest, I get quite unconfortable reading all these technical terms (NAD, TSA, sirt1... etc, since I have no idea what most of those terms). However, I am super interested and I wanna have a decent base in biology, chemistry and physics, but I have to admit that I´m totally ignorant. Next months I wanna learn and get at least a superficial understanding of these mechanisms... Recently I finished Epi-Paleo RX and I even understood some things!1 lOL, last year I had read a bit and I just had my head hurting. I also read Going Somewhere. Next al khalili´s Life on the Edge. It is funny how I am super interested right now for these things, compared to my high school years in which I hated biology...
    I´m going for some sea swimming and beach walking, see you!!!

    I recently read that Jack is coming to Europe for an event along Dr. Wunsch... Damm it, I feel I have to be there!!!

    Does anyone know the location? I read it would be for members... I am suscribed to the cheaper 5€/month Patreon... is that a membership or do I have to be silver, gold, etc. ?

    I´d love to be there.

    My dick is working better. I´m having morning wood most days and it can get quite hard. It is still not optimal though, as the brain-penis connection is far from good and it sometimes takes me forever to reach orgasm. In my mind I may be super horny and it either takes a good while to get hard or soo long to orgasm. It gets even funny when I get to see it with the right mindset.

    I still wanna laugh nervously when I write about dicks/sex. Damm taboos! LOL. But it is my main symptom remaining, so that´s my focus.

    I recently went to Madrid and got certified as a lawyer. I didn´t study enough, but I got good grades. I´m super good in test type exams...haha I love them. Too bad I probably won´t work as a lawyer in the near future/ ever? I´m a bit in existencial crisis regarding my career choice, especially seen that my priority number 1 right now is to get back to optimal, and getting 8 hours indoors high EMF´s probably won´t help at this moment. I may study 1-2 years for a public job, (1-2 years studying in my kiniki in a rural area..doesn´t sound too bad). But I have no clue how I´ll get my money, damm it! I am reading lots of books, Wim Hof, Liberman... Also the 4-hour workweek, recommendation I got from @Matty_M in one of his podcasts... In the future I should start some internet business like him... Seems cool.

    I´m feeling very optimistic lately... Some reasons:

    -As I said, I´m feeling better. I think, with what I´ve learned lately about all this quantum health stuff (and with what I´ll surely learn) this summer will be my summer. The summer I´m back to 100%.

    -I´m going to Poland in July to meet...yeah, JK. And hopefully some of you here too. I´m pretty excited, honestly, I don´t get to connect often (if at all) with likeminded people in this health realm.

    I wanted to go to the Flowfest in Munich too but it was too much money so.. I chose Poland.

    -Regarding 5G and the EMF issue...

    I swear I was feeling like in an almost constant fear for quite a while. One day, I kind of told myself: Fuck, if we humans are super stupid as a race and extinguish ourselves/ fuck our planet and all things we care for and love... be it. If I get batshit crazy or end up with any chronic disease because our shity environment... be it. But I´ll do my best to avoid it. It is all I can do".

    It may seem woo woo, but that acceptance and letting go that is talked about in the meditation world fucking works. I felt super at ease and joyful... I really feel how the mindset we carry profoundly affects our health and wellbeing.

    And, paradoxically, since then I´ve seen some improvements in the world EMF issue. I saw that the awareness is growing rapidly, and that several good things are happening. Several cities have rejected 5G, and hopefully their number will just grow https://takebackyourpower.net/5g-the-dominoes-are-starting-to-fall/

    In my own local town some friends even convinced the city council to launch a program to give some talks and give hundreds of brochures to kids in schools warning against EMF´s and tech addiction. It was pretty awesome. https://www.oviedo.es/-/las-conceja...lares-sobre-la-contaminacion-electromagnetica

    I think life can be good, we just have to make it so... take care!!!

    Hi Pablo,

    I'm a Podiatrist and Nutritionist with a clinical specialism in photobiology. I'm based in London, UK - so weather here is also pretty rubbish.

    I've been catching up on your post, very interesting situation and glad you're improving.
    If I can give my two cent piece here firstly I'd say to avoid ALL pharmaceutical drugs. They place a great deal of stress on the liver and kidneys which are supportive in hormonal health. I do not prescribe any pharmaceutical drugs to my patients even though as a Podiatrist I could. My major concern about the advice given is regarding taking Cialis daily...I have to strongly disagree with this. May be if Cialis was a pure product without dangerous exipients, but still it would be bad for your eyes and small blood vessels in the brain. These pills contain 'aluminium lake blue' etc type nano-sized metals which do not exit the body and work with wifi etc to damage the tubes from the testes.

    The weather is warming up now so eat as much grass-fed butter as you can (retinol) and get outside in full spectrum sunlight. Based on what I have learned from JK; early morning sun (1st hour of the day) will build your melatonin...this will give you quality sleep. After this you get UVA and Infra-red A light which helps to build dopamine. Dopamine is the main neuroendocrine inhibitor of prolactin. High prolactin levels in men lead to low libido and erection difficulties. Dopamine blocks this so build as much as you can. You will have about 2 hrs of UVA+IRA sunlight in the morning depending on location. I use the D minder app.
    Later in the day when UVB kicks in it stops the testosterone production.

    Protecting the eyes; use Iris software on your computer and use in Biohacker mode with the brighteness up high. This way you dont need to wear blue blockers at the desk. Open the window if your desk is near one so you can get some full spectrum light while working.

    I hope this helps.

    Thanks!!! I´m doing most of that. Obviously it is difficult to do it, but I focus on the "don´t let the perfect be the enemy of the good".

    Cialis: I have never taken it and I´m not planning.

    Grass-fed butter: I´m taking quite a lot of kerrygold. I love it.

    Sunlight: Pretty consistent with sunrises (not everyday but most days right now).
    "when UVB kicks in it stops the testosterone production": Damm it seems I should focus on getting in my kiniki out at that time. It seems that the more I learn the less I know LOL... but that´s cool (I think I was getting mostly out nude with the UVB already in...).

    Protecting the eyes: Got it (I think). Iris + Uvex dirt cheap glasses (though I´ve read somewhere the don´t block 100%... I have to find that out). In the near future I´d like to get some stylish blueblocks to go out with them but now I have no F money (I´m considering donating shit, aka "faecal transplants", as a way to get a little cash LOL, but I´ll wait a bit until I´know I´m optimal. One step at a time)

    Others: I know some stuff that I should be doing more are...

    - CT. Yeah, I still have fear before any cold shower or cold baths... but I´ll conqer it. I feet this is key. Cold + sun will be my thing
    - Water: I mostly drink tap water. It is chlorinated (not fluoridated). How much is this holding me back? I occasionally take sparkling pellegrino or others, but not too often.
    - Mindfulness meditation (dude, I still remember awesome stuff that I felt in my body the first summer I seriously meditated (1 year after my hair loss med crash). Something changed both in my mental wiring (super less anxiety, focused attention and even happiness) and in my body (I remember having spontaneous erections while meditating, occasionally... pretty cool. I find it something super simple and helpful but hard as fuck... it´s tricky.)
    -Mobility training / rolling massage

    Anyways... thanks! Any imputs/ critics are much appreciated! Keep it up people!!! :)

    Pd: I´ve finished Liberman´s "Light Medicine of the Future", and I´m halfway "Take off your glasses and see" (yeah, I wear prescr glasses, 3 diap or so). Next: Life on the Edge. Come on. Lets not get overwhelmed..one step at a time

    I´m just finishing planning my move and CAREER. It is the best option that came to my mind.. The main concern is 5G in rural areas of Spain. I have seem some announcements about it, but I guess and hope the EMF issue will be much better in low pop.

    I´ve been coming and going from the city the last months, for different reasons. My plan is to live in different areas of rural Spain for the next years. I have to spend a minimum of 1 year studying. My parents own a house in a very rural place, almost without signal right now... so I would study there (1-2 days/week I´d have to go to town to see a teacher, but out ASAP). They even made an announcement of 5G in that area, but I´m not sure how they´ll do it, it is really low pop.

    Anyways, I wanna get a job as a "comptroller-secretary rural town hall" (didn´t know translation, google told me that). I´d have advice with the mayor about legal affairs, accounting, etc.

    Is it my dream job? Fuck no.

    Pros:
    -Job security: I´d get a job for all my life (unless I steal public money or something like that. Or I decide to leave)
    -My parents would maintain me for 1-2 years (they told me that up to 3). Yeah, I just made 25 and got no job, I feel a bit like a parasite but... It is how it is
    -This job is exclusively for areas of less than 5k inhabitants!!! This is my main motivator.
    -It is paid quite decently (2000€ average, could be less or more)
    -40 hours a week, I think I could organize a bit my own schedule (e.g. seen sunrises and some a.m Sun compatible)
    -I get the job for all Spain. Meaning, I could move to the South or even Canary Islands with relative ease (I think)

    Cons:
    -I could not get the job, after 2+ years studying = wasted time
    -They could put 5G in rural areas
    -I could not move away from Spain. I´d lose the job (I think I could maintain it for some years after I have worked 5y)
    -I´d spend 8 hours / day under artificial light and some EMF´S for sure. I´d try to work some of it from home in my kiniki but not sure if I´d get it.

    Soo... NOT PERFECT BUT MY BEST OPTION. Quite good I´d say. The idea is to begin sutying in July (after Polish Health Summit, it´d be pretty hardcore for 1-2 years, with little time to learn much quantum health. But I´d practice it (most important?) and sneak around occasionaly for sure.

    If you think this sounds good or is a shit decision say it!!! But I gotta make a decision right now.

    Last week I was alone in the village, and it was awesome. I turned off the switch at night and I went naked to the beach. I could see sunrise and sunset from my own garden!!! (I´m really planning most of my activities depending on the Sun). I feel naked swimming in Sea and sunbathing will be key, and CT (I´ve chickened out a bit but batteling my fears). This week I had to come back to city and I don´t feel that much magic in my body hehe. But I´ll get this summer!!! And the rest of my life, hopefully.

    Polish Health Summit was pretty amazing. More so than the information, for sharing time and connecting with like-minded people. Pretty funny being half naked at 4 a.m for sunrise and a few cars passing by... LOL

    I probably was amongst the 4-5 people that knew the least about this "quantum health" stuff, even though I consider I have spent the last few years lots of time reading, learning, etc. I (think) I know a lot about the practical application, but not so much about the theoretical base. What goes first theory or practice? I´d say practice, so I´ll keep practicing 90% and theorizing 10%. Jack´s talks in the Q and A were a bit over my head really. I´d love to understand the details, but it´ll take me a while. "The Body Electric" just arrived home, so that´s something. I crave learning, but time is limited...

    I´m not optimal yet but I feel I will be soon. I´ve been avoiding a bit relationships with girls lately because insecurities about sexual workings you know? I´m getting quite decent woods recently and I feel libido is pretty high, so in a few weeks I may (for fucking sure) begin flirting again. I love it, really... I crave it. I love connecting with people (as Jack is pointing out recently) and somewhat especially with girls. Be it sexually or just socially, we all crave connection.

    What hurts me the most is that this "Post Finasteride Syndrome" is probably super under appreciated because people don´t talk about their health issues much, ESPECIALLY if it is about their erections/libido being affected. Their manhood and their egos are in the line. Even death would be better. I know it cause I´ve been there. I probably I´m just talking about it because I already get decent erections, if I had 0 sexual response I wouldn´t say shit probably, especially publicly. I have heard about many people taking that castrating pill, even one friend told me recently. Similar things happen to people with any other health concern. Depression, for example... it was tough to me to say I was depressed (I probably didn´t even say it, really). Sometimes it seems we are all supposed to be 100% happy and healthy, so "society" expects us to say so even if we have shit inside. So we don´t get to know reality.

    I had several great conversations in Poland. I felt some deep stuff inside. Do you know when you gather different ideas which some confront the others? I think they call it "cognitive dissonance" or something like that. It´s probably good. I had that when I asked Jason about making money in the bus. Fuck it was fun. Jack had told us (a few young guys around) to make lots of money- for location independence I guess- so I asked Jason, as I heard he had made good money in his life. I knew he wouldn´t look very good at my idea of getting a public job. "Just Over Broke". he said. LOL. He encouraged me to learn and read about this stuff, which I´m already trying in my limited time.

    I´m just 1 week into the preparation for this job (lots of hours studying). I know this job won´t make me rich, but it has several good pros.

    1-I have to spend minimum 1 year of studying (some people take up to 3 years, but DHA will help me!!!) which I´ll do half naked in optimal places, to achieve optimal health soon.
    2-Even though it will be inside 7 hours/day job, I´ll have almost total mobility around Spain (anyone Canaries??), and some schedule flexibility (sunrises are mine). I may even try to do some stuff at home and stay less hours indoors
    3- Minimum 2000€, I won´t be rich but it is pretty decent in Spain. I could get up to 3000 in a while.
    4- I´d be more or less my own boss. I would tell the local mayor what he can or not do according to the law.
    5- I´d learn some useful knowledge and abilities for life
    6- Very low (less 5000 inhabitants) population regions. I guess that will be much better than cities even if eventually there is 5G in rural areas, from satellites and all that shit.

    Eventually, the idea I got is to do some other stuff to increase income and eventually get financially independent. After 5 years in that job I could even leave to do some crazy stuff and they would save my job in case I wanted to come back. It´s not something to get rich by itself but it´s the best I can figure out right now. Lets see where it goes.

    I´d applaud anyone reading all this long. Would anyone? Go do something more useful!!! xD

    Tomorrow I´ll go to my first official nudist beach. So excited

    "It seems that the more I learn the less I know LOL"...it's true.
    *Uvex - This was my first pair. They're light orange in colour and won't block all the blue so are ok for daytime computer use if you're near a window. However this really depends on how much redlight you're exposed to balance the red so for this reason, personally I am not a fan of any daylight glasses. I just go for full-on red lenses that block all the blue and some green. I use these for when I'm travelling or at the gym/sauna so I'm not too concerned if they get broken. They are a conversation starter at the gym so it gives me opportunity to share some science with others. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Terminator...=gateway&sprefix=terminator+gl,aps,157&sr=8-1

    *CT - I have started having sauna sessions for the last 2 months. I do 10-15mins dry sauna then 60-120sec cold shower and then I repeat for about an hour. This has allowed me to get used to CT and now I can wake up get straight into a cold shower. It's an initial shock that only lasts a few seconds and then my body adjusts. I can take a long cold shower if I need to now and I don't feel the cold after a while. I tend to keep my showers short though as my water is fluoridated. My hack to flush out fluoride and bromides from cells is to take a dropper full of Lugol's iodine solution which I blend with a whole egg or some double cream to make it liposomal. You can make your own Lugol's iodine solution super cheap if you buy the raw materials and mix with distilled water.
    I was in Blanes in Spain in May and went swimming in the very cold sea lol it was super fun. Kids loved it too..I am getting them into the CT and sun protocols too. Chlorine isn't a huge worry as Bromine and Fluoride/Fluorine are the major problems in terms of dialectic blockers. Use a good carbon filter can remove most of the chlorine.

    *Rolling massage - if you mean foam roller, it can be helpful but keep it away from the back and spine as it will collapse the spinal posture.This affects strength and spirituality.

    *I finished John Ott 'Health and Light, I have his other book 'Light, radiation and You' which I need to read but I'm currently reading Life on the Edge by Jim Al-Khalili - He is based not too far from where I work. May be I'll meet with him after :)

    I wanted to come to the Polish Health Summit but couldn't find the link to book. I went to Flowfest in Munich, met JK and we sunbathed together chatting about 5G. I work in 5G city but my home town is not 5G (yet). I was in Madrid last month and I noticed I did not tan very much which was strange as in Blanes it was cooler but I turned dark - this one one of the discussions I had with JK and he says 5G affects it. Funny, because he suggested I move to Morocco due to my skin colour but my mitochondria haplotype is northern Siberian which means I need lots of CT with high sun exposure..I am planning to move there anyway now it has JK's seal of approval :D

    Anyway, I am writing this reply standing barefoot on grass in my 'office garden' in my kinky underwear making about 77IU's of vitamin D a minute.
