I’m sure that, like anything else, if you continually took it day in an day
out your body would manifest a reaction.
Your body will do that whenever it
is out of balance. My point was, its a safe alternative. Obviously, anyone
thinking of trying herbal or homeopathic remedies should research them based
on their own symptoms, body types, medical history, etc.

(they also recommend gse & can offer dosage amounts, etc), but the whole
book is really excellent. it offers a complete reference as to what effects
the prednisone has on you and how to counter the side effects of it, etc.
here’s a link to view what the book looks like,
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/158333 … ce&n=28315
But you can get it through intralibrary loan or at natural/whole food
stores. They usually have a copy available as a reference for customers.
