If anabolic steroids increase estrogen(e) levels, will boosting testosterone naturally(ie taking vit d, lifting weights, abstinence) also increase e?

In brief: Your "natural"

Methods do not "boost" testosterone.
That's determined by endocrine feedback mechanisms and other factors. Any increase in testosterone will lead to minor increases in estrogen due to hormone conversion, but they are insignificant and meaningless except in people who take excessive exogenous testosterone. Don't get your medical information from friends, tv or internet scams.

I would also be very careful about what you buy. I had a patient once that I informed them that they had low testosterone. They went to a popular nutritional store and bought some sort of supplement that guaranteed "natural" testosterone enhancement. The result, it lowered their testosterone level to non-existent levels.
