3 Safe Alternatives To The Anti-Inflammatory Drug Prednisone

"There are Healthy Alternatives to Prednisone"

Prednisone is a corticosteroid that is often used to treat inflammation in the body. It can be prescribed to treat a variety of illnesses, both short and long term. It is often used to treat various lung ailments such as asthma, bronchitis and even pulmonary fibrosis; skin inflammation; arthritis; eye problems and immune system disorders.

Prednisone can be an effective drug for treating the symptoms of various illnesses, but it rarely addresses the root causes of the illness. The harmful side effects of prednisone often outweigh the benefits of long term use.

Inhibiting Natural Processes

Steroids are produced naturally in the body and help fight infection and inflammation. Prednisone can augment the natural steroids in your body and when taken for a long time can even replace them. When steroids are used long term, the body will reduce or eliminate the steroids it makes naturally.

According to WebMD, Long term use of prednisone can also reduce the symptoms of infections. It can mask infections so that you do not notice you have an illness such as the flu or pneumonia until it has done significant damage.

Harmful Side Effects

One of the most concerning effects of long term use of prednisone is mood disorders. Prednisone can cause depression, anxiety, inability to sleep and mood swings. It may not be obvious that these feelings are connected with your medication.

Long term use of prednisone can also cause osteoporosis, thinning of the skin, weight gain, and extreme fatigue. Everyday Health also points out that research has connected prednisone use to a specific kind of cancer called Kaposi's sarcoma.

Prednisone can also negatively interact with many medications. It is important to be aware of how the various medications you take work together. Depending on your ailments, prednisone may not even be an option for you.

Knowing these facts about prednisone can feel bleak to someone whose only relief comes from taking this drug or others like it. However, there are safe and healthy alternatives that are not commonly used in clinical settings.

Treating Root Causes

Serrapeptase is a systemic enzyme that works extremely well in the body to fight inflammation, inhibit and even reverse scar tissue production, and fight excessive mucus production. Our bodies naturally produce enzymes, but this production drops off as we age. Serrapeptase can work throughout the body to support its natural processes for fighting fibrin, inflammation and maintaining a healthy immune system function.

This is especially good news for those who suffer from chronic lung or respiratory problems such as asthma, sinusitis, pulmonary fibrosis, cystic fibrosis and many other inflammatory conditions.

Serrapeptase is found in the Biomedic Labs Signature products Serra RX80Serra RX260(Newest & Highest potency serrapeptase)and Serracor NK, a specialty serrapeptase & nattokinase formula. In these products Biomedic Labs uses a unique process of enterically coated serrapeptase powder unlike any others, called BPPS so that it passes through the stomach unharmed and can be effectively absorbed into the body through the small intestine where it is then absorbed into the bloodstream. This method of enteric coating is expensive but allows for the highest absorption and effectiveness of any serrapeptase product on the market.

Unlike prednisone, serrapeptase treats the root causes of various illnesses rather than simply masking symptoms. Reducing inflammation, fighting mucus, and digesting scar tissue can lead to better heart and lung health and has helped thousands of people over the years.

Reducing Inflammation

Because prednisone addresses inflammation, another excellent supplement to consider is turmeric. Curcumin, a compound in turmeric has long been considered an anti-inflammatory among those who use natural medicine. There are current studies into the healing effects of turmeric on both Alzheimer’s disease and arthritis. If you suffer from chronic inflammation turmeric is an excellent options to reduce inflammation and improve your immune system health.


If you are considering ending your prednisone use, talk with your doctor. Because your body has become dependent on this steroid, ending your usage abruptly can result in serious side effects and even death. Work with your doctor to taper your dosage and discuss any supplements or other over the counter drugs you intend to take while you are using prednisone.

Prednisone can be a useful drug to help you feel better. However, the long term costs outweigh the benefits. Try using a safe supplement that will help you feel better without any side effects.
