Hi everyone. I usually do great with NSD, unless I hurt myself. I have a minor injury in my foot, which is wigging out because of the spondy monster. I have spoken to my compounding pharmacist and he could make me predisone or possibly medrol w/o

Hi, Jay: Regret strict NSD is not helping; this should obviate the need for any drugs. I can say, especially in retrospect, that I would take antibiotics over biologics any day. Have You gone on NSD and Diet Forum to troubleshoot diet? From past

Hi Jay, Yes, that's how I read it. Using a humanised anti-IL17 or Anti-IL23 (so called 'biologics') might not address existing points of inflammation. Perhaps a type of biologic might be added that could successfully knock down the inflammation asso
