I have read some people claiming to have better sleep and digestion
after abstaining from orgasm.  

Are you eating shrimp regularly? Most shrimps are high in histamine
unless it is very fresh. You may experiment by skipping shrimp for few days.
Are you eating carrot salad or cooked bamboo shoots or cooked mushroom
to reduce endotoxin, which causes sleep problem.

You also need to take vitamin K with antibiotic use.
Did you introduce new foods one by one? A lot of people have
problem with milk and OJ. I added one food at a time and noticed
how body react to new food and decided on that if i should continue
to eat that food or not. Egg yolk causes mild stomach problem for me.
Did you introduce milk slowly as RP suggests?

Ketamine has one chlorine atom attached to carbon, which
RP mentioned in an email response that this kind of molecule
causes liver damage. I do not know how much chlorine is present
in prescribed ketamine dose. 

If histamine is the main problem then cyproheptadine or 
benadryl can be used. I have noticed a major improvement in health
 using half to 1 mg of cypro once or twice a day. 
It is also helpful to avoid large amount of protein after sunset.

Yes I think I have a histamine problem because having an orgasm makes everything worse for me. 

What would you suggest instead of shrimp?

I feel like I am allergic to everything.

I hate cypro, and got into a car crash when I was on it. It makes me feel so dreamy/absent minded.

Also, I just bought the co2 tank. Now I need to get a regulator. Couldn't find one in the store, so I ordered one online.

James, have you tried keeping concentrated protein (meat, eggs and cheese) for earlier in the day, and eating mostly fats and carbs at night? I tried the fruit by the nightstand trick, but it wasn't until I cut out the evening protein that I stopped having the nighttime sugar crashes that would leave me waking between 3-4:00am every morning. The worst was when I was on minocycline. I had daily headaches due to it crashing my sugars. I'm not sure if penicillin has the same effect, but it might be another possible suspect.

Hi jennefer thanks for your suggestion. I'll try it.

I get the crashes even when I'm not on an antibiotic, but the protein thing sounds interesting.

@vos what do you think about this regulator:?

Do you use a fish tank one because it is less powerful?

yes, I use the fish tank one because it can limit the stream to smaller bubbles, and keep the stream constant over time. 

In a fish tank, the regulator often releases only a few bubbles a second.

Mittir, hi!

I see some mention in Ray Peat's work leads me to think that MCT emulsified in egg yolk could suppress the release of histamine. As less histamines are released, then there might be less of a histamine response possibly. 

Have you tried MCT emulsified in egg yolk? 

Aside, I like the style of your post, you are trying to make a difference. As Ray Peat writes:
Quote:I have always felt that the cybernetic definition of communication as the transfer of something that makes a difference should be applied to speech and writing. As a student and teacher, I saw that information which made a difference was the essence of intellectual excitement and growth. But making a difference is exactly what university administrators and journal editors don't want.

I wake up every night around four am and have trouble falling back asleep.

This all started with a traumatic incident years ago.

I've tried everything and nothing has helped for many years. I'm on twenty five mcg of cynomel a day in addition to the standard ray peat foods. My pulse and temps are good a lot of the time, yet I still can't sleep.

I'm going to try ketamine as I read it can help overcome trauma stored in the body. 

Insomnia, Suicide and the Redemptive Power of Ketamine

What do you think?
I use high dose urea therapy for sleeping. For me, I take about 15 grams of urea dissolved in a few ounces of syrup and soda or juice. If I do wake up after about three or four hours of sleep, as I often do, I take another 15 grams of urea.

I think if I were having trouble sleeping ever after taking the first dose, then I would take 15 grams of urea a second time. Typically, in clinics, urea is administered in two doses of 15 grams each.

I think the inability to sleep results from an excess of stress-induced anti-diuretic hormones. The excess of the stress-induced hormones then leads to an imbalance of sodium and other osmolytes, which is called "euvolemic hyponatremia" This means there is normal fluid volume (euvolemic) but too little sodium and other osmolytes in the fluid (hyponatremia).

Ray Peat often recommends sugar and salt to help with sleep. This may be helpful, too. Sugar and salt are also known to help with an excess of anti-diuretic hormones. 

But high dose urea therapy is known to be more effective and safer than sugar or salt to protect against an excess of stress-induced anti-diuretic hormones.

I have not used ketamine. It may be unnecessary if the high dose urea therapy works.

Where do you get urea from?

I defiantly have high stress hormones, I feel my adrenaline all day long.

Just to reiterate VOS, you say commercial grade urea is ok so long as it's 99+% pure? The urea i hve comes in tiny spheres, i'm not sure what import that has on its purity.
