So I know how immunosuppressants work but I am new to TNF's. Is your immune system still being shut down? I am getting into being really healthy with my diet trying to incorporate more antioxidants and green foods. Am I wrong to think that there is no point in trying to boost my immune system with healthy foods and supplements when my body is just being "shut down" anyways? Maybe it doesnt work this way but I could use some words frommy fellow forum buddies to clear up my confusion on this topic.
