I am not one for suggesting anything with out have a good reason to taking it. Monkey see monkey do usually gets people in trouble especially when they do not understand individual biochemistry alone how hormones interact with one another not mentioning even thyroid. Can it work potentially but I would have to look at the entire case in order to see if would apply.

Why do you want to increase Cortisol. Most of us are trying to lower ours.

You like many other have been Mislead
after looking over several hundred or more adrenal stress profiles I have found less then 5% to have elevated levels. Lower cortisol with out knowing your levels is a very foolish and dangerous thing.

Have to pin point where the imbalance are coming from to give your adrenals a rest
along with proper adrenal recovery. You need to look at external factors to isolate the potential causes. I have a slew of people from uk I worn with and know the proper places to get testing done if need be.

Sounds like you might like to take a read of Adrenal Fatigue by Dr. James Wilson. I just picked it up and just started reading it. It was suggested to me by my doc. She thinks it's a possibility that I have been bouting with it due to my deployments.
He has a website on it too:

I am not taking about bombarding cortisol from all angles which is never a good idea, but targeting cortisol via 7 oxo dhea. You might want to read what PA has to say about specific cortisol management.

doesnt cortisol help store fat and help break down muscle when you are doing more than 25 minutes of running or doing weights?
now when you are not doing such exercises, then it is okay to increase cortisol and it wont store fat and break down muscle?

That's not a like a "wow, i've never heard of that, I think you're wrong" More of a "wow, I learned something new today, and would like to know more"

Cortisol helps regulate blood pressure, the immune system, blood sugar, and helps regulate the metabolism of proteins, carbohydrates, and fats. So lowering it alters the way your body uses the very nutrients a bodybuilder needs to be productive.
The problem is excess cortisol. High cortisol is going to produce obvious symptoms such as high blood pressure and excess abdominal fat, easy bruising and slow wound healing to name a few.

I tend to work one chain up by looking at cholesterol production or sythnesis to see if there is a blockage or stagnation at the top of the chain and work down

So I guess my question is.....
When coming off of a cycle of PH/DS/AAS, do cortisol levels really shoot up like everyone says they do? Or is that just a bunch of broscience?
I imagine the degree to which it raises is dependent on the individual....still curious those if there is an "on average" approach to the aforementioned question
