Just over the weekend I was reading from a reliable source, about the Chinese Herb called Reishi (Ganoderma Lucidum). Well known to that community for over 3000 years to combat chronic inflamation and antistress conditions. Used instead of Prednisone.
Reishi works slowly with the immune system to reduce abnormal inflammation where Pred shuts down the immune system. It doesn't have any of the side effects like moon face, water retention, insulin inbalance, adrenal hormone issues, insomnia, anxiety and depression.
I am not a doctor, just passing on the information from the book (Herbal Remedies for Dummies). Please do your own research.
All the best to you all.
