I’ve had this question posed to me for years from loyal customers of my products, “Is there an Alternative to Prednisone?” And the short answer to this question is “Yes and No.”
One supplement that is commonly recommended as an alternative to Prednisone is Turmeric. While stimulating the natural production of corticosteroids from the adrenal glands, it is considered a natural steroid, and a highly anti-inflammatory supplement, reducing swelling and pain.
While nothing can really compare to how fast Cortisone works, what we do know is that Cortisone is associated with a number of harmful side effects. Racing heart, mood changes, weight gain and addiction are but a few of the more immediate side effects. Long-term effects of steroid use are even more detrimental, including (and I’m just mentioning a few), steroid-induced osteoporosis, loss of muscle, bulging eyes, cataracts, fat deposits, thin skin, hypertenstion and cushing’s syndrome.
In terms of reducing inflammation, relieving symptoms and reducing or stopping the progressiveness of a disease, there are many supplements that I can recommend if you are looking for alternatives. Feel free to call Biomedic Labs 888.298.7363 for additional questions.
“Curcumin is the active ingredient in the traditional herbal remedy and dietary spice turmeric (Curcuma longa). Curcumin has a surprisingly wide range of beneficial properties, including anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, chemopreventive and chemotherapeutic activity.”-pubmed.gov
“Curcumin exhibits great promise as a therapeutic agent, and is currently in human clinical trials for a variety of conditions, including multiple myeloma, pancreatic cancer, myelodysplastic syndromes, colon cancer, psoriasis and Alzheimer’s disease.”-pubmed.gov
Just as fascinating about turmeric being a wonderful alternative to corticosteroids is its use for Multiple Sclerosis. “The researchers at Vanderbilt University Medical Center found that turmeric blocked the progression of an MS-like disease in mice. Although these findings are preliminary, the mice showed little or no sign of the symptoms of the disease after being injected three times a week with 50 and 100 microgram doses of curcumin, a compound found in turmeric. A group of mice who didn’t get the injections went on to develop severe symptoms of the disease.”-drweil.com
We are proud that we can offer you three products, Excylzyme 2 AF, Serracor-NK & SerraRX 80 which both have a unique blend of ingredients that are phenomenal for fighting autoimmune conditions, inflammation, and general pain. (Click Here for more information on this outstanding product) Although Excylzyme 2AF is an extraordinary product, and turmeric works with the body’s natural cortisol levels, making it an excellent choice, I always like to recommend Serracor-NK or Serra RX as a starting point for treating any inflammatory disease, based on the numerous experiences of customers’ amazing success stories with both of those products. Serracor is simply the best all around enyzme product we have ever offered. It seems that Exclzyme 2AF would be an excellent choice for Multiple Sclerosis patients.
