Many people are seeking to recover from Steroid Withdrawal as quickly as possible. This is understandable as it is excruciatingly difficult to deal with. Sometimes it’s the needed mental endurance that seems more difficult to maintain than the physical endurance.

In the search for quick fixes & medical help, you must ask yourself: “what are you trying to fix?” The answer may be very different from what first comes to mind. Before you reach for more pharmaceutical drugs, which most likely are immunosuppressive drugs with a whole different set of side effects – think.

It is your decision if you want to deal with side effects in addition to steroid withdrawals. Many who use more drugs to relieve the withdrawal symptoms experience side effects, sometimes even creating similar rebound effects as what the steroids caused.

Ultimately the thing to remember is immunosuppressive drugs suppress symptoms caused by an internal problem.

These drugs do not cure. Often they don’t even suppress the internal problem. They just suppress the symptoms of the internal problem.

First solve the mystery of what IS the internal problem that led you to have the symptoms that you chose to suppress with steroids. When you identify that problem you can figure out how to help your body reverse the internal problem on its own. Usually our habits and choices trigger many of the symptoms. By eliminating the triggers you naturally suppress the internal problem. A drug is not required for that level of suppression. Knowledge & awareness are what you require.

Once you recover from the withdrawals, you still may deal with the same symptoms that led you to steroid usage in the first place. So take this time of laying around being sick for research and discovery of what the real problem is so that you are prepared for the battles that may lay ahead.
