I take 50mg of pregnenolone and 25mg DHEA. Pregnenolone is what they used before prednisone was invented, and it has next to no side effects. I used it to transition off of prednisone in the summer, and now I'm in remission.
These biological hormones have given me my life back. I've tried and failed all expensive modern medicines.
I think if there's a risk of cancer, you shouldn't take DHEA long-term. However 25mg is relatively safe for people over 35. Pregnenolone is universally safe and actually protects the body from the impacts of stress. They are both safer than HGH in terms of cancer risk.
I don't think experimenting with HGH is necessary. If you get your adrenal steroid hormones sorted, then you can start exercising and eating right, and then your body will produce HGH on its own. Also once the stress response in the body is downregulated, inflammation drops and you start absorbing food better again. Then if there is any hypothetical cancer risk you can mitigate it with healthy diet and lifestyle.
The last time I flared a year ago, it took me 6 months before my body started absorbing iron again. I needed iron IVs once a month. This time, my body started absorbing iron again in 2 months, and this was after the worst flare yet. So this treatment is no joke.
I am normally extremely underweight but now I am muscular for the first time in years. I look like a healthy man my age. The fact that modern medicine no longer even thinks about
pregnenolone for inflammatory conditions seems like a giant scam to me. It's been like night and day. I was able to get off prednisone pretty fast while taking preg, and while on preg my body started to heal a lot faster than normal.
I struggled with refractory UC for 5 years and for the first time I'm in clinical remission. I pay $15 USD for 2 months of DHEA and $25 USD for 2 months of pregnenolone. It's a joke compared to the cost of regular medicines. I will stay on them for life, provided the government doesn't do something to take them away, which is something they could very well try to do. I have a 5 year supply of each just in case.
We'll see if this treatment approach holds but so far I have found a miracle.
