    does anyone know if any AAS help with auto immune issues? in particular psoriasis? i read there were a few studies that it helped clear people up.

    i have psoriasis. at one point i was 70% covered in it. long story short, i got in with a great holistic doctor. found out i had allergies towards eggs and dairy (thats why i went vegan) and for the past 5 years ive been about 90% clear. i do fight flare ups time to time but keep it under control through diet. i don't take any prescriptions including topicals..

    just was curious if anyone knew anything about this probably rare topic with limited info

    AAS and AI disorders NOT!!

    And if you can locate scientific evidence to the contrary I’m happy to review it.

    Hmm, interesting.
    I bet diet will always be the main culprit or path to relief.
    Anything that triggers your immune response will probably make all auto immune disease even worse.

    when i revisit my original dermatologist and he asks me "what are you taking to stay clear?"
    i reply; "diet changes"
    with that, i always get eyes rolling from them like "yeah right"
    traditional doctors have a hard time accepting holistic treatments.
    traditional medication is extremely important (obviously) and for major issues like cancer, leukemia, etc; modern day medication should always be used.

    but IMHO, for relatively minor things like psoriasis, restless leg, anxiety, sleep disorders, headaches, mild pain relief, etc; Rx are not always needed and us as a society are now programmed to take a pill for everything.

    Burrr, i typically remain anywhere from 70%-95% clear all by avoiding dairy. that was my particular situation. recently i started having flare ups (minor ones, its a relentless condition) so i now removed gluten products and it seemed to tone down a bit. its a battle that will never end, but for; biologics like "Humira or Enbrel" are not things i want to be injecting into myself

    i wish there were more info on testosterone replacement, aas and AI
