I came up with this theory and posted it, and it has taken off, about my “big insights” into PFS, everything I have discovered is still true, but it is just a TINY piece of PFS I now realize. If you add this to my other theories, this explains why 5AR is shutting down. We took an irreversible suicide inhibitor of 5AR enzymes, some event occurred which triggered Estradiol (a 5AR inhibitor), people often link the initial crash to some event that was stressful. The enzymes came back mutated, some guys have more mutated enzymes than others, 5ar antibodies were created, and our system is attacking our 5ar enzymes. Some of us have less antibodies than others.
There actually is a 5AR antibody, and a 5AR antibody test as well as a synthetic 5AR antibody. The 5AR antibody was designed to induce a syndrome that shuts down 5AR2 so that the synthetic 5AR2 enzyme can be tested. PFS shuts down every endocrine system, first you must address testosterone, then you must address Adrenal fatigue, Cortisol, Thyroids. There have been reports of guys having improvements when sick, or when sleep deprived. The drugs used to treat Adrenals are immunosuppressive drugs, they simultaneously reduce the immune response that is preventing our system from recovering.
I am 9 months in and at 80% and stable, I am just on testosterone and Vitex 1600mg a day, I highly recommend Vitex, it is a miracle supplement. It raises Progesterone, lowers estrogen, raises testosterone, lowers Prolactin, raises Dopamine, it was made for PFS! Testosterone seems to speed up recovery time, I asked Ihatepropecia how he feels about not using testosterone for the 4-5 years he suffered with PFS. He agrees with me now that he is on it after the fact that he recovered, and what remnants of PFS he has left are recovering with testosterone and steroid cycles.
The problem here is too much fear of getting better, when you are governed by fear, it is difficult to get anywhere with anything. Thankfully I was able to convince MCI to go on testosterone, he started with the cream, and he is improving, and I told him to increase the dose, and he is improving more, and now he is going to go on injections. There are HUGE misconceptions here about testosterone, that guys with this are androgen insensitive. A lot of guys just don’t response to testosterone the way that some do, many here expect to feel something or experience something when injecting testosterone, that doesn’t happen to all guys.
It happened to me due to my genetics, and it is coming back slowly, but there are many guys who do not have PFS and simply feel nothing from testosterone. Dr Bieley who I am seeing, he doesn’t feel anything from testosterone. So the guys on this forum in their brilliance have concluded that they don’t respond to testosterone or hormones. First of all, when your adrenals are SHOT you don’t respond to hormones, and that’s why some guys like DannyFC feel NOTHING from hormones, shot adrenals.
Even if you were androgen insensitive, you would still have adrenaline rushes etc… Look at all the recoveries associated with adrenal fatigue and thyroid issues. So there are a lot of things going on here, this is why some guys inject testosterone and feel it for 2 weeks and never again (like RecentQuitter). He injected it, his system responded, and then his immune system attacked the enzymes, and in 2 weeks it was gone (like a flu). Awor who declared himself androgen insensitive, he responded to Proviron, that contradicts that theory, I believe at times when his immune system was weak enough, he just so happened to respond.
I don’t have all the answers, but I did get myself to 80%, and I find a bunch of guys on here that are so uneducated and ignorant, vicious and angry. They just want to scare everyone away from trying to get better. I didn’t give up, even though this syndrome adapts like an immune system (which explains why things work for a while and then stop), I kept trying and trying. This forum hasn’t been a place of support, it has been a place that made me worse, it is not healthy for anyone with PFS to visit here, to be abused, told you are not recovering, told you do not really have PFS. To be attacked for finding ways to manage PFS, for finding ways to get better, for making progress and failures.
No, this place is where you go to die, people here need to change, this forum needs to change. This is why I am at Solvepfs.com, but I post here every once in a while. I am still not finished, I am going to treat my Adrenals and thyroid, addressing every system that PFS affected. What you guys don’t understand is with PFS, you go on testosterone, and you feel nothing, but over the course of months, you make improvements. You gain muscle, libido, mood, but very slowly, but you don’t have some amazing response in 10 minutes or 10 days. You may not feel much, but you workout on it, and you will see muscle, and feel improvements. You know it is funny, before I had PFS, many of my guy friends on test would never have any muscle gains or feel much from using it. They would need huge doses of it to gain muscle, I never understood why, I would get huge just from one injection, but also had very oily skin.
I wonder today if these guys just have less 5AR than I did, now I seem to be more like they are. One thing is well known, you don’t feel much from test without working out, it is less effective, well known among guys on it. There was nothing wrong with what I did here, I got people to start trying to get better, but many give up after 1 thing doesn’t work out. There are 2 types of people, quitters and fighters, I am a fighter, that is why I am at 80% and living a normal life now. Full sexual function, libido, muscles, mood, the last bits of PFS will be fixed with Adrenals and Thyroid treatments. I don’t believe I will be the same as I was, but good enough, and in time I will improve more.
If you saw me, I am a buff guy, with a healthy libido, I do not need any ED drugs. I believe my Progesterone cycles played a big role, my use of Masteron and Test cycling back and forth as well. You guys though… Oh no people didn’t recover from testosterone propionate and an AI, that means nothing works and give up!! No, I kept going, I went through maybe 100 different discoveries since then, I landed here. I don’t have all the answers, but I made a lot of progress. When I posted about Vitex on here, I was mocked and attacked, it’s so pathetic, probably the most effective treatment for PFS too (1500mg a day).
I am glad the studies are coming out, but this forum should be moderated, and abuse and bullying and insulting should not be allowed. The reason no one has recovered from one protocol is because many systems are affected, you have to address them all, it will take many protocols. The whole fasting thing, it is just starvation, no reseting of the system bullshit, your immune system is being suppressed by starvation, this probably allows this syndrome to recover more. Though it is a dangerous method, when I saw this post, I had to type this up, I know more people appreciate my posts than don’t. People can always follow me at solvepfs.come, I do think what Mew is doing with the studies is great, it is definitely our best hope. In the meantime people are recovering though, I am one of them.
