Re: Currently reading David Wise's new book on Anxiety

About 80% through it - it's excellent...Particularly enjoyed the chapter on attention training - "Attention is the joystick of the nervous system."

Re: Cortisol levels before / after relaxation training

I have not looked into that, but you could try to find something like that at Pubmed. Relaxation is a difficult issue. It's become clear to me, over the years, reading the posts here every day, that some men find it almost impossible to overcome anxiety, even after taking anxiety medications and do...

Re: Frequency now only at night.

Try Prelief prior to sleep. During the night and due to the gap between meals, your body begins to cleanse itself which means the release of acidic substances into your urinary tract. That tends to irritate inflamed tissue causing the nerves to signal the brain for release. Prelief helps to quiet th...

Re: Communicability of Prostatitis

Totally agree. You know the routine though - any disruption of the tissue/flora of that nature causes temp. immunosuppression and you can culture a massive variety of secondary insults...Then it's on to the glorified anti-inflammatories such as Diflucan or Cipro or the like to inflict potential long...

Re: Communicability of Prostatitis

Obviously we're talking theory here but I'd put my vote on mast cell degranulation in your semen (and even potentially at skin level) causing irritation in her during intercourse. The NIH (through Nanotechnology) has now biopsied trigger points and found this mast cell degranulation to be present. P...

Circles back to that landmark Chrousos paper that Dr. Dimitrakov presented to the forum in late 90s. Dr. Theoharadies, Buffington, and others have also since reached conclusion that CRH/Urocortin are central basis. Neurocrine Biosciences has several of these antagonists in trials, including one for ...

I would say definitely. It's all interconnected. Symptoms are being stirred not only through the physical therapy you are applying but also shifts in mental focus and emotions as relates to the area. I wouldn't suggest working on the trigger points right before bedtime. Working on these areas again ...

Once upon a time I was tested for allergies including wheat/gluten which came back negative for Type I. I believe wheat and dairy falls under the "hypersensitivity" umbrella in my case from excessive mast cells activity in the digestive tract and this might be true in many digestive disorders. Mast ...

Wow. That is a totally different deal. Well it's great to hear you had some early success with this. Awesome to have the theraputic girlfriend. Probably a completely different thing, but I've noticed a similiar response at night. My belief was that mast cells accumulate in the gut at night (due to s...

Hi Alan, Very interesting indeed - definitely pass along an update. Another thought might be that you've resolved most or all of your secondary trigger points and what you are dealing with now are the key areas of origin that develop even during a day from the predisposed upregulated central nervous...

I'd be surprised to see anyone test negative for a wheat allergy as well as most others that we react to. Researchers at Kansas State have identified at least three allergens to humans in the hard wheat berry. Some individuals might not have any outerward signs of reaction such as pain, fatigue, etc...

Re: The Coming Debate Over Treatment

Webslave, that is a good theory on downstream events however, working on the "body is orchestra" concept, isn't the true focus at the brain level and the chronic, subconscience misinterpretation of stress? One of the most attractive aspects of the Stanford approach would seem the undertaking of resh...

When you have longer time intervals between meals your cells start to cleanse - acidifying you mucosal tract and irritating inflamed tissue. Thus, putting the entire inflammatory process in motion.

A reason most types of fasting are not a good option in CPPS..
